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! 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.
2016 Fabiana Kalema Negroamaro Salento is basically the same grape used to make Zinfandel, with one major exception: Zinfandel is grown in California, while the Primitivo grape is grown in Italy.
Martin loved this full-bodied wine. He said it was aromatic and smelled of grapes and was smooth with no bitterness. Sweet & dry with notes of citrus and chocolate, and a touch of smoke. It had moderate tannins to make my cheeks tingle.
2016 Fabiana Fiocco Fiano Salento The card says 2015 but the bottle says 2016 so I’m going with the bottle. This wine comes from Italy and is made with Fiano grapes.
The nose was sweet while the flavor was similar to a juicy lemon, but not quite as acidic.
2013 Fabiana Kalema Primitivo del Salento is yet another wine made with Primitivo grapes grown in Italy.
This rich red wine smells of tobacco and tastes bold and fruity. It lingers on the tongue and is very smooth. Serve with classic Italian pasta dishes featuring red sauce.
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 pour 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!
