SONOMA, CA (October 9, 2019) – Having quickly sold out in the UK, Broadland Wineries is bringing its Advent Calendar to a wider distribution of the U.S., just in time for the holiday season.

This year, the festive box will feature a new look and offer even more variety to wine enthusiasts—a truly global selection of sparkling and still wines from some of the top wine regions of the world spanning nine countries including France, Italy, Spain, New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, Chile, Argentina, and the USA.

Also new for the calendar this year is the inclusion of Broadland Wineries’ owned brands, also available in the U.S. in 750 mL formats—Waipapa Bay Wines (New Zealand) and Proudly Vegan (a range of 100 percent vegan wines from Chile).

The calendar was introduced to the market last year as the first of its kind, selling out within just a few days of the launch. The 24-pack of 187 mL bottles are single-serving, one for each day leading up to Christmas.

“As a drinks business, it is one of our top priorities to ensure we offer the consumer what they want,” says Mark Lansley, chief executive of Broadland Wineries. “We are thrilled to see the demand for the Wine Advent Calendar here in the USA match that of the UK. This is an exciting category game-changing brand and it’s exciting to see it grow.”

Suggested retail for the Wine Advent Calendar is $80 (though pricing will vary state to state) and, due to the limited nature of the product, is available only at select outlets in the following states: Alabama, California, Florida, Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, New York State, Texas, South Carolina, and Virginia.
