VineOh! Winter Box Review Featuring New Crush Riesling and Speechless Merlot

Every VineOh! box comes with a little envelope of info cards.

I love that they go into detail about each product and the company behind it. There are usually special offers on each card, too!

Violet and Brooks Sylvia Charm Bangle – Retail Value $28.00

The launch of this particular box lines up perfectly with Valentine’s Day. Whether you get the box as a gift for someone else or as a gift for yourself, you’ll get some good Valentine’s mileage out of this charm bracelet. The metal has a gorgeous shine to it, and the rhinestone-studded heart is a sweet, yet subtle touch of romance. It is on the smaller side, in my opinion—it’s 2.5″ in diameter and is a bit stubborn about bending—but once it’s on, it looks cute and doesn’t slip up and down my wrist.

And get this—the company behind this gold cuff-style bangle donates a percentage of their profits to an organization that benefits homeless youth and teens!

Mary Square Stainless Bottle, 17 oz. – Listed Value $31.00

I couldn’t find this exact pattern online, so I linked to the same shape and size in a different design. The bottles on the Mary Square site all list values of $33.75—the info card lists a slightly lower price. Regardless, this 17 oz. bottle is super cute and has a nice smooth, almost velvety plastic texture on the outside, despite its steel interior. I love the gold lid, and the spring flowers look so bright and happy. I like bringing water bottles with me wherever I go, and while this more traditional floral pattern might not be the one I’d pick out for myself (I’d probably have picked something a little more graphic or sleek), I like having a cuter, more stylish alternative to my rather utilitarian red Nalgene, haha! Oh, and Mary Square’s site says that they use some proceeds from the water bottles they sell to fund projects in areas without access to clean water. I’m digging the community-minded brands that are featured in this box!

Lady Jayne Eyemask – Retail Value $8.00

🎶We flawless… ladies… tell ’em…🎶

Oh, sorry, am I the only one with Beyonce on the brain right now?

While I don’t use eyemasks on the regular, I do love them on trips, where it takes a lot more effort for me to shut out the world around me and get some shut-eye. This satiny eye mask will come in handy on my next plane or train trip. I like that it has a retro eyelash design reminiscent of the one Holly Golightly wears in Breakfast at Tiffany’s but with the twist of a gold foil Queen Bey quote. Cute!

Mirabella Glisten Eyeshadow Collection – Retail Value $24.50, Listed Value $25.00

The value listed on the info card for this palette is higher than the retail price, but only by $0.50, so I’m not sweating it. I’m into this palette—the hues end up being pretty neutral, so they’ll work whether my BF and I do something ultra-fancy this Valentine’s Day or keep things chill and just catch a movie. I was impressed by how pigmented these smooth powdery shadows are, and that they’re paraben-free, talc-free, gluten-free, and FD&C/D&C dye-free, too.

I think it’s so fascinating how wines can impact the flavors you perceive in different foods, and how eating certain foods can do the same for wine. This chocolate was designed with that phenomenon in mind. To be honest, it’s a pretty tasty brick of dark chocolate all on its own but paired with specific types of wine, this 54% cacao dark chocolate really sings. I tried it with a Riesling (more on that in a moment), as was recommended by the package. The chocolate seemed to make the Riesling taste more velvety smooth (it woke up some fruitier caramel notes), and the Riesling made this rather dark chocolate somewhat sweeter and more vibrant. The only trick of this chocolate is that it’s in a really thick, sturdy brick of a bar. Cutting it isn’t too hard, but I wish it was easier to break apart and nibble on. That said, I like that you could easily use it to make chocolate shavings to top some ice cream or another dessert. (This chocolate is supposed to go well with Port, so it could be awesome for a dessert course.)

2016 New Crush Riesling – Retail Value $22.99

Onto the wines! These wines are VineOh!’s own brands, which have been pretty tasty thus far. This Riesling is the one I tried with the chocolate, and even without the chocolate, it’s really yummy wine. I’m more of a red gal, but in trying so many wine subscriptions over the past year, I’ve really started to appreciate white wine. This Riesling was both refreshing and a little decadent, too. My first impressions were that it had an almost vanilla-ish (or maybe white chocolate-ish) fruity flavor—it’s sweet, but not in a saccharine way, and it has a smooth, pleasing way of drifting over your palette. It’s got a sharp, pungent little pop to it at the end, too, to wake you up. The back label tells me that the expert-observed flavors are Jasmine, white pepper, lemon zest, dried apricot, and wintergreen. I can definitely see the white pepper part, and even the wintergreen. It just has such a nice freshness to it that I liked a lot.

2015 Speechless California Merlot – Retail Value $24.99

Oh, red wine, how I love thee. This Merlot was a nice subtle wine to sip on—it was gentle going down, but had a rich, earthy flavor that filled my senses after the first sip. I love when wines have that almost roasty vibe that coffee does, and this one had just enough of that sensation to make it super satisfying. The label likens the flavor to dried figs, black currants, cinnamon, anise, licorice, blackberry jam, cloves, and caraway. There’s definitely something hearty about the flavor of this wine, though it’s very light to drink. It’s perfect for making a winter evening in feel sophisticated.

The Verdict: I really liked this winter box! I think it’d make a great Valentine’s (or Galentine’s) Day gift, but I appreciated that the items inside weren’t so explicitly Valentine’s-y that you couldn’t make use of them year ’round. I could see wearing that bracelet and certainly using that water bottle throughout the seasons. And I’m eager to start playing around with that eyeshadow palette—it’s so versatile, I’m sure it’ll serve me on ordinary days, as well as special occasions. Oh, and did I mention that the wines were delicious, too? I could actually see ordering more of that Riesling in the future!

  1. I absolutely loved the box! The wines and gifts were amazing! I look forward to every box. I have not been disappointed with any of the wines I have received. Each bottle is smooth and has a unique taste in my opinion. My favorite is the Red Blend. I ordered an additional six bottles on top of the bottles I already received in the box. I also enjoy all the unique gifts included in the box. Each one is something I normally wouldn’t go out and purchase for myself so it’s a nice surprise. I will definitely continue ordering and will be giving this as a gift to my mother-in-law, I know she will love it!

  2. Like others, I was planning to gift this coming box, but I now plan to keep it for myself. I haven’t brought myself one of the more trendier water bottles, so I’m super excited to be receiving one. I have been receiving the white/red combo boxes and have enjoyed all the wine so far. I’m more of a red gal, but this has allowed me to try more whites and I have enjoyed it. I do feel they have been worth the money. I look forward to my box…it’s my little indulgence just for me 🙂

    • Aw, that’s awesome, Stacey! We all deserve a little indulgence now and again 🙂 I’m so glad you’re excited about the box – it’s a fun one! Thanks for your comment!

  3. I really enjoy this sub much more fun than just a win club. Can’t wait for the next shipment.

    • saucy and romantic

  4. Each year during the holidays our family has a wine contest based on different price ranges (expensive, moderate, economical). Happy to say that New Crush (Pinot Noir) from VineOH! was the big winner! Nice job on the wine selection.

  5. Wow! Can’t wait to receive this box. I LOVED my last box and the wine too!

  6. I love this box! The wines are truly unique and I consider them a good value. The pinot noir was lovely, light and smooth, but not too sweet as some pinots can be. We just returned from Napa, and these wines especially the Speechless label rival some of my favorites from our trip.
    Great job Vine Oh! I cannot wait to receive this box – I was planning to gift it but it’s super cute and I don’t think I can live without the water bottle!

    • For those of you who subscribe, I prefer a red wine, so do you all do red or a combo?

      Are the white wines any good?

      I’m trying to figure out do I do only red or surprise me.

  7. I really enjoy reading the reviews of this sub, and generally like the items inside, but think $60 is still too high for what you receive. If the wine was not specifically made for VineOh I would probably feel the $60 is more justified, but otherwise, this sub makes more sense to me at a $45 price point. The two wines alone make up almost $50 of the RV of this box. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I can get a really nice bottle of Riesling or red for $25, so I’d expect a lot from these wines. Oh well, happy for those who enjoy it and will keep reading the reviews 🙂

    • Cat, so you have never “received” a box? The wine is GREAT and the whole box is worth more than $60. I have received two boxes already and have been more than happy with the wine and items. So, not sure why you are responding when you have never had the pleasure of receiving/trying yet.

  8. Thanks Judy.

  9. Given that they’re private label, does anyone with a more sophisticated palate than me know if they really measure up to similar wines in that price range?

    • ….. not sure I would call mine a “more sophisticated” palate but I love a good red wine …. I rather liked their Pinot Noir, light, fruity and delicious…. – this merlot sounds interesting …… from the last 2 boxes, I had 2 of their cabs – The reviews were good – I did NOT like it at all…. ….. there was a bitter lingering after taste that was not pleasant at all…. musty…
