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!

August’s theme was Unsung Heroes and celebrates underappreciated vino.

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! All of the recipes this month are provided by Little Pine, a vegan restaurant in Silver Lake, California.

Each wine has its own information page including the following:

  • Wine Name
  • Grape
  • Location
  • 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
  • Description
  • Recipe

I received the following wines in my August box:

2015 Solà Fred is a Spanish wine featuring Carignan grapes. This medium-bodied red would pair perfectly with tapas or food from the grill, or pair it with pizza!

2016 Clot D’Encís, Blanco is a medium white wine made with White Grenache grapes in Spain. Best served with appetizers or white fish dishes. I thought it was mild and practically gulped it in one go, which is odd because most wines are to heavy for my palate but this was very smooth, yet peppy.

2010 Broken Earth Petit Verdot is an award winning red featuring Petit Verdot grapes from Paso Robles, California. This full-bodied wine pairs beautifully with rich food such as steaks and full-flavored cheese. I thought it tasted a lot like grape juice, more so than other wines I have tried. Smooth and very flavorful.

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! I find myself enjoying less-sweet wines more every month and don’t have to mix my wine with fruity Italian sodas any more! 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, or you can arrange to pick it up at another place of business (mine is a grocery store.)
