VINEBOX is a monthly wine-by-the-glass subscription box that provides its subscribers with three wines to taste for $29 a month, or save on a longer subscription. The wines sent are very nice wines that are usually at least $30 a bottle so this is the ideal wine club for people who enjoy high-end boutique wines but want to try them before committing to purchasing an entire bottle. You can choose from reds, whites, or a mix, plus you can choose Adventurous, Classic, or Newcomer to get the best experience for your comfort level. Because the wine has been repackaged from its original bottles, the shipped tastings will only last for approximately 3 years from date of receipt. I decided to drink mine within just a couple of days!

The three glasses of wine arrived packaged inside of a sleek black box with cushioning to keep them safe. Mine were delivered by FedEx and keep in mind that an adult 21 or older must sign for the package. Tasting note cards are contained in an attractive envelope and you can find recipes and music to go along with the wines on the VINEBOX website.
I received 1 wine from Germany and 2 from France.
Each card has a quote on the front and tasting notes, food pairings, and other info on the wine.
2014 Castelmaure Cuvée No. 3 is a complex medium bodied red made from Grenache, Carignan, and Syrah grapes.
It has a red fruity nose and is dry. The flavor lingered on the palate and I detected a hint of oak in the finish.
I’ve DVR’d a series about Albert Einstein and this reminded me that I need to watch it soon!
2015 Riesling Spätlese Trocken is a German wine from the Rhine Valley and is described as the “knife-edge balance of crisp and fruity.”
I thought this Riesling was dry, zippy, and refreshing and reminded me of lemonade with the barest amount of sugar and minus the acidity. I have an affinity for sweet wine and yet this one went down very easily!
Hey girl, I can see this quote in meme form if I try.
2015 Cuvée du Père Léonce is made of Cabernet France grapes and is from the Loire Valley in France.
I found this wine to be dry and it had that tannic bite along with an herby finish. I also thought it tasted kind of woody, like I drank it next to a campfire.
I really enjoy my monthly VINEBOX! I loved how they had tasting notes and info on the cards, but there was so much more info on their website, to help me really get to know the wines. Up until now wine has tasted like, well, wine and I have a had a hard time tasting the nuances and flavors and would stick to sweet moscatos, but maybe I was just drinking cheap wines? I like to drink a little wine at a time (otherwise I feel ill) so this amount was perfect for me, plus the screw top lids meant that I could enjoy a few sips and then place back in the fridge to enjoy another time. I also appreciate that I can choose which types of wine I would like to receive.
