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.
All of the wines I received this month were from France.
Each card has a quote on the front and tasting notes, food pairings, and other info on the wine.
2015 Muzard & Fils Clos Faubard is a Pinot Noir from Burgundy.
It smells of lush red fruits and has a touch of oak. This was smooth with a bit of a bite. My husband said “it warms the palate.”
2016 Châteu Les Crostes Rosé (available as part of a sampler pack) is made with Cinsault and Grenache grapes in Provence.
Rosé is having it’s moment in the sun, both literally and figuratively. Rosé is a summer sipper and I even received a perfume in another subscription that is inspired by this type of wine! This one was crisp and dry and had a citrusy taste and floral nose. Tangy on my tongue, too.
2015 Domaine Comte de Monspey is also from Burgundy and is made with Aligoté grapes.
The wine was smooth and smelled of white stone fruits such as peaches and apricots. It was perky and a touch tart, like lemonade. If you add creme de cassis to this Aligoté then you have a classic kir cocktail.
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. My husband said that he thought the quality of the wines was very nice – he expected them to taste watered down and weak but they are pretty potent!
