​Each of the 24 slots in this huge advent calendar is stuffed with a delicious treat from the wonderful organic family-run farm at Fattoria La Vialla. There’s something for everyone with olives, biscotti, wine, olive oil and more. Winner of Italian Wine Producer of the Year, their wines are amazing but the food is also super special.

To order, request a catalogue here.

We love the fact that once you’ve devoured all the incredible delicacies you can open out the box and create a home for the cardboard people and animals that come tucked inside. This is so well crafted and thought out and makes for a really special surprise for the whole family.
