It’s the most wonderful time of the year: Costco wine advent calendar season.

This year, savvy shoppers have noticed not one but two different calendars floating around their local Costco warehouse.

They both contain 24 half-bottles of wine and retail for around $97-$99.

One advent calendar, made by Flying Blue, contains 24 half-bottles of wine that are 375 ml each, about 12 oz.

This box of wine was especially created for those looking to sample wines from around the world, and it comes with red and white bottles from Moldova, Portugal, Italy, France, and more. Those wanting to see a full wine listing of the Flying Blue box can do so online.

The calendar currently retails for $99.99, which comes to a little over $4 per bottle.

The second advent calendar features reds, whites, and rosés, and it includes 24 half-bottles 375 ml in size. Unlike the Flying Blue box, this advent calendar doesn’t list what’s inside.

The second box retails for $97.99, $2 cheaper than the first advent calendar.

Before deciding which to purchase, remember that buying both makes a whole bottle a day.
