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, or you can arrange to have it delivered to a FedEx site for pickup (mine is at a local grocery store). Tasting note cards are contained in an attractive envelope.
I received two reds and a white this month!
The presentation is sleek and sophisticated and I found a simple black envelope in the box.
I found a card to go with each of the wines. Each card has a quote on the front and tasting notes, food pairings, and other info on the wine.
2015 Domaine Roger Champault Sancerre Les Pierris Rouge is made with Pinot Noir grapes in the Loire region of France.
This red was light bodied and had a plummy nose and taste. It left my tongue in a tizzy and my husband said he thought the alcohol was pretty strong in this one. They suggest serving at a BBQ but we tried it along grilled burgers.
2016 Waldschûtz Müller-Thurgau is an Austrian white made from Müller-Thurgau grapes, a popular variety that is now grown throughout Europe.
I like white wines and even though this wasn’t particularly sweet it was absolutely delicious. It has a stone fruit flavor reminiscent of peaches and apricots and is crisp but not tangy. The light body makes it go down easily. I think I just discovered a new favorite!
2016 Sette Aje Terre Siciliane is made with Nerello Mascalese grapes in Sicily.
The grapes that go into this wine are grown near Mt. Etna and the crazy thing is that my husband said it had a smokey nose! This medium bodied wine is quite flavorful.
I really enjoy my monthly VINEBOX! I loved how they had tasting notes and info on the cards. 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!
