If you want one of Aldi’s new wine Advent calendars, you may want to hit the store today.

The discount grocer's wine and cheese calendars hit shelves today, priced at $69.99 and $12.99 respectively. If they're as popular as they were in the United Kingdom last Christmas season, they'll fly off the shelves.

The 21-pound calendar contains 24 bottles of wine at 187 ml each, equivalent to nearly six bottles of wine. The cheese calendar also includes 24 mini imported cheeses for a total 16.9 ounces.

Advent, beginning Dec. 2, is a countdown to Christmas and preparation time for the holiday.
