I am sure you have seen the Advent calendars where there are 24 little spots and each day you open the little door and you get a treat, usually it was chocolate. I used to look forward to that every year as a child and get them for my children myself. It was such a neat thing for children to be able to count down the days before the holiday. As I grew older, I stopped caring so much about the chocolate treat and especially as an adult but I still missed the fun tradition of counting down.
Cooper's Hawk has put the fun back in the holiday countdown, and let me tell you, this is not your children's countdown! They have taken the idea and named it “The 12 Nights of Christmas” (you will know why they called it nights in a second) and labeled 1 through 12 and when you open up the flap, you get WINE! How awesome is that. We all know how hectic the days leading up to the holiday can be – wrapping gifts, cooking, baking, decorating, filling out Christmas cards – the list goes on. How wonderful would it be to keep the excitement of the buildup before Christmas and have a nice surprise of a different wine waiting for you to accompany you in your tasks or just sit back and relax.
I know that I always have quite a few get-togethers before the holiday because not everyone can meet up on the actual day so this is perfect too for a nice pre-dinner drink maybe to toast if you feel inclined to share and not break it out after your guests leave! With 12 different wines, you may even find a new favorite that you might not have tried otherwise!
The bottles are 350 mL, so they are smaller versions of bottles and it is not like you are opening up a whole bottle of wine every night. They are”demi” bottles, which basically just means they are half size.
The 12 bottles of wine you get, one for each “night,” are:
- Almond Sparkling
- Pinot Noir
- Cooper's Hawk Red
- Cooper's Hawk White
- Cabernet Sauvignon
- Australian Shiraz
- Blanc de Blanc
The Gift Box can be shipped throughout the United States or if you are lucky enough to have a Cooper's Hawk restaurant location near you, you can also buy it directly.
Why should children have all the fun and excitement (and the treat that goes along with it) of counting down to the holiday? Check out Cooper's Hawk for yourself and treat yourself or someone else to a 12 Nights of Christmas Gift Box! You can also follow them on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.
