Wine Awesomeness Subscription Review + 50% Off – April 2016
Wine Awesomeness is a monthly wine subscription box. They ship their wine in this bright blue box that also functions as a fun wine briefcase!
Here is the inside packaging:
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

This box comes with a booklet detailing the wines, tasting notes, and recipe pairing ideas.
Good to know: Wine Awesomeness offers 3 different subscription options: All red, all white (with a chance of rosé or bubbly), or a mix (with a chance of rose or bubbly). I decided to go with the white again this month. (They make it easy to switch your preferences in your account every month).
This wine is described as “Dry white varietal wine made from the unique Mtsvane grapes from the Kakheti region. It has a light straw color with a greenish tint. This wine has a tender, light flavor and harmonious taste dominated by citrus and tropical fruit.”
Unfortunately, this wine wasn’t for us. (I invited my mom to help me taste test this month!) The description sounded great to me, but it was the one glass we didn’t want seconds of.
I think this is the first wine bottle I’ve seen with a bottle cap lid! It was a very easy to drink, light and dry wine. It has a low alcohol content compared to other wines, and Wine Awesomeness recommends adding a little seltzer for some day drinking!
Szoke Irsai Oliver
This was our favorite in the box. It’s sweet, fruity and still pretty light.
Verdict: I really like Wine Awesomeness! I think the pricing is reasonable – $15 per bottle shipped to my door, and I like the detail of the info booklet that is included. I’m a wine novice, but I still find it approachable and fun! This box wasn’t a hit for me like previous boxes, but I still enjoyed 2 out of the 3 wines, and tried bottles I never would have sampled otherwise.
Plus this is a wine box that ships to Pennsylvania! (If you live in a state where it is difficult/impossible to get alcohol in the mail, then you may understand why I’m so excited about this).
One other thing to mention about Wine Awesomeness that I appreciate:
You can skip, change your subscription preferences, or cancel your subscription from your online account.
