Qantas Wine Advent Calendar – this has 12 windows with 12 full sized bottles.
So was the Qantas Wine Advent Calendar worth the price – until we have tried all the wines and reviewed we won’t know.
But It comes in a nice delivery box, but on opening you can’t get it out of the cardboard box and the windows are all half opened. Yes I know it really is about the wine, but I do like snazzy packaging and think they could make this out of stiffer cardboard. So for the rest of December I have a cardboard box with the inner box unable to be removed – maybe when all the windows have been opened I will remove it to see what it looks like.

So, I removed the inner box and it really is just an inner flimsy section cut out – so you need to keep this in the delivery box – which is a bit of a shame.
Overall, we have had some amazing wines out of this calendar and still have a few still to try. Would I recommend this, yes I would because not only do you get 12 full sized bottles, you try wines you may not have chosen. So is it worth the money, it isn’t cheap but the wines you receive generally are higher priced wines.
Please enjoy your Seasonal Break and stay safe. Look forward to bringing you another year of wine reviews.
