Day 1

Thanks for choosing the Assorted Table Advent Calendar Kit!

We are kicking things off with a little bubbly! Cheers to you for taking on our 24-day challenge!

This dry sparkling by Hillinger is the perfect aperitif to set the mood.  It’s 100% Pinot Noir and produced in the Burgenland region of Austria. 

Temp Note: This wine should be chilled to about 45ºF. Open and serve right after taking it out of the fridge. Sparkling with a cork & cage finish should be well chilled or ice cold when you open it to avoid waste due fizz. This is especially crucial for wines that are labeled méthode traditionnelle, traditional method, méthode Champenoise, or Cap Classique. These terms are all indicators that the wine has gone through second fermentation IN the bottle and the pressure will be greater than if the wine was produced in the Charmat method or tank method.


“Burgenland, the easternmost of Austria’s federal states, is influenced by the hot, continental Pannonian climate and produces the most opulent and authoritative red wines in Austria, along with complex whites and extraordinarily fine sweet wines. In terms of natural conditions, the regional particularities of Burgenland should not be underestimated.”
