For the past few years, every Christmas season, Costco has released an amazing product: the Wine Advent Calendar. This is a large box that contains twenty-four 375ml bottles of various wines with one wine designated for each day of December leading up to Christmas day. This allows you and your friends/family to be surprised every day with a new wine and sample the various white wines, red wines and even champagne. It’s a great way to celebrate the season with others as well as sip your way through a great selection of wines. We personally loved one specific Malbec in the 2020 Costco Wine Advent Calendar (but more of that in a future post).
Much to our surprise and delight, Costco just released a summer version of their winter Wine Advent Calendar: the “Hello Summer Wine Sampler 2021”. This is a box of 12 wines: 5 white wines, 4 red wines and 3 rosé wines. And it is meant to celebrate friends, sun and summer fun! Some of us (we will not name who) were as giddy as little school girls when we saw stacks of these brightly colored boxes of wine samplers at our local Costco and proceeded to stack our cart with multiple boxes.
See below for our overall review of Costco’s Hello Summer Wine Sampler (2021) and stayed tuned for more posts as we’ll be reviewing every single wine in this box.

What is Costco?
As mentioned on its website, “Costco is a [global] membership warehouse club, dedicated to bringing our members the best possible prices on quality brand-name merchandise.” It has a wide selection of merchandise (from clothes to food to books), specialty departments and exclusive member services, all for amazing prices and value especially as it sells products in bulk (we’re looking at you Kirkland 30 rolls of toilet paper).
Costco has a commitment to quality (from their products to their service), a drive for entrepreneurship and its dedication to its employees. Did I also mention they give out food samples of some of their most tasty products? For these reasons, especially the samples, we love Costco.
For more information, see more Costco’s company website.
