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 about 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 (Walgreens is one of the options!).
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.
I love the classy envelope!
2015 F. Chavy Morgon is from the Beaujolais region of France and is made with Gamay grapes.
This is a dark burgundy colored wine and the scent was unique, almost like soy sauce! It is a medium bodied wine that was smooth and tasted like chocolate and cherries. I thought it tasted better after eating chocolate, which always seems to take away much of the acidity and bite of the wine. Gamay wines are excellent for serving with roasted poultry.
2015 Ducquerie Savennières is made with Chenin Blanc grapes from the Loire Valley of France.
This medium-bodied wine was smooth, not overly tannic, which makes a nice change from the tongue-tingling wines. It had a citrusy flavor profile and would go great with a cheesy dish or something sweet and sour, like a stir-fry.
2016 Guy Allion Touraine Rouge is a medium-bodied red from the Loire Valley of France. It is produced from Cabernet Franc grapes and is known for having a pepper-like flavor.
I tried this straight out of the bottle but then let it sit for 30 minutes, as suggested, and that helped bring down the powerful flavor. This is more acidic than I like but when I tried it with a nice dark chocolate bar the sweetness and berry flavors popped and it was much more to my liking that way.
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. These are very nice, pleasant wines and I especially enjoyed the white this month!
