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 usually 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. They all said “Taste of France” at the top and then had the region from where the wines originated listed underneath.
I love the classy envelope!
Everything in my box!
2012 Chateau La Tour de Bessan is made with Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes in Bordeaux. It is similar to the other red wine sent this month, but is drier with an oaky finish. Sometimes wine is so strong it makes me cough. This is one of those wines. Serve with roast chicken.
2016 Pierre- Henru Ginglinger Riesling I always drink the white wines (my husband prefers the reds) and I was quite happy with this offering. It was crisp, fresh, and fruity but not overly dry. Made with Riesling grapes in Alsace. Serve with shrimp or scallops, or just drink it by itself. I’m not judging.
2016 Pierre Henri Ginglinger Pinot Noir is very rich, smooth, and not overly dry. Tangy cherries and slight smokiness. I even liked it! Made with Spätburgunder grapes, which you may know better as Pinot Noir. Serve with grilled meats. I served it with a charcuterie plate.
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. If you like to drink upscale wines but prefer to enjoy them in moderation, then I would suggest you give this subscription a try!
