I go through one bottle of red and one bottle of white wine a month so the Variety Box is the best choice for me!
The theme this month is “Behind the Scenes.” I received wines from California, Italy, and France! Recipes in this month’s issue were provided by Tasting Table.
The Back Label is a mini-mag full of cool stuff – full-page intros with details on the wines, paired recipes for each, and even several articles on the theme and its relation to wine culture. I’m a newbie when it comes to wine appreciation and enjoy the insight this helpful magazine provides.
I love that there is a menu pairing and recipe included for each wine! This pizza looks delicious and I am going to place it on my menu this week.
Each wine has its own information page including the following:
- Wine Name
- What you should do while drinking this wine (many tongue-in-cheek)
- What to eat with the wine
- What to listen to while you drink the wine
- A cool chart showing a visual on the Acid, Body, Tannin, and Fruit of the wine
- Wine Bouquet
- Tasting Notes
I received the following wines in my March box:
2013 La Pinot, Pinot Noir is WA’s first ever collaboration and comes from California. Fruity and earthy at the same time with jammy fruit nuances. I shared a glass with my pinot loving friend and we agreed it was delicious.
2015 Prodigo, Nero d’Avola is an Italian red made from Nero d’Avola grapes and has a red berry note and dry taste, and was pretty strong to my untrained palate, and cleared my sinuses! The tannins left a bitter taste on my tongue.
2014 Le Charmel Muscadet is a white from the Loire Valley of France and is made with Melon de Bourgogne grapes. I caught a tropical nose but my husband thought it was more floral scented and was a dry wine with notes of hay and a bit of pucker-inducing acidity.
I feel like I’ve learned a lot about wines in the past few months and a lot of that is due to this subscription! While I prefer sweet, fruity wines such as moscato, I am broadening my palate bit by bit and find that if a wine is too tart, I can always mix it with pomegranate sparkling soda! The convenience of having wine delivered to my home is a big bonus but keep an eye on tracking because an adult 21 or over must be there to sign for the box.
What did you think of this month’s Wine Awesomeness? Let me know in the comments and if you prefer red or white wine!
