Adult Advent Calendar from Bench 1775

The Holiday Season is just around the corner and it’s time to start counting down to my favourite time of year, Christmas. Every year, I usually get a chocolate Advent Calendar to mark the occasion, but this year, I received the greatest gift of all- a Bench 1775 Advent Wine Calendar!

This calendar should be on the list of every wine lover. Bench 1775 is a winery located on the Naramata Bench that are known for their award-winning wines and spectacular views of Okanagan Lake from their patio overlooking the vineyard. [*Side note- this is always on my list when touring the area as a must stop.]

For the second year in a row, the winery decided to release 50 special packages of its Advent Calendar. The Calendar arrives in a beautifully wrapped “Joy to the World, the Wine is here!” box. Inside, you will find each bottle wrapped with ribbon and a number (1-12) marking each day. Each bottle is a complete surprise to open as you won’t know what is inside, but I can tell you Bench 1775 included a mix of Red, White, Rose and Wine Club exclusive wines. I can’t wait to unwrap these wines to see what’s inside…

There are only 50 packages available, so be sure to order online here before they sell out! All orders must be placed by November 29th to ensure timely shipping.

Be sure to follow @uncorkBC on instagram as I unwrap each bottle and celebrate the countdown to Christmas!
