Wine Awesomeness is a monthly wine subscription that specializes in rare and unusual wines. They seek out “the coolest, craveworthiest wines” and send “vino you don’t see everyday, but will want to drink everyday.”

Their curatorial team is led by a Food & Wine Sommelier of the Year!

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 rosé or bubbly). I tend to prefer white wines when the weather’s warm, so I signed up for the all white box.

This month’s theme is “Taco Night.”

Wine Awesomeness always provides a recipe for each of the wines they send, and this month’s wines are all paired with different taco recipes.

I also received a breakfast bar sample.

2014 Carrier “Beach Comber” Albariño– $19

Is that a carrier pigeon on the label with a bottle of wine strapped to its back? How cute! Albariño has been my unofficial wine of the summer, and I’m so excited to see one in this box (even though it’s now officially autumn). This wine is light and citrusy with a hint of caramel, and it has a lovely freshness that makes it super easy to drink. I’m a big fan.

2013 Skuttlebutt Sauvignon Blanc Semillion– $17 AUD (approximately $12.81 USD)

The second wine in this month’s all-white box is an Australian blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Semillion, and Chardonnay. Wine Awesomeness describes this wine as tasting like a tropical fruit salad, and I think that description is spot on. When I sip this wine, I taste pineapple and maybe even a little banana? I know that probably sounds crazy, but it works! This wine is bright, fruity, and delicious.

Chronic Cellars Eunice X– $14.99

The last wine I received this month is from Chronic Cellars, a winery committed to producing affordable, laid back wines for a casual lifestyle. That’s pretty nifty, I think. Eunice X is a white blend made up predominantly of Chardonnay (with some Viognier, Roussanne, and Marsanne). This wine is really interesting. Chardonnay is the dominant grape, and the flavor of Chardonnay is easily identifiable, but the other grapes help turn this wine into something unique. It’s nicely balanced and really tasty. The flavor is rich, and it reminds me a little of a dessert I’ve made a few times, grilled pears with honey.

Verdict: Wine Awesomeness did it again! Their curation is on point! All of the bottles I received were great, and I would happily buy more of the Albariño and the Scuttlebutt. I love that Wine Awesomeness seeks out rare and unusual wines and that they include a good amount of information about them in the provided booklet. It’s also wonderful that they send out a recipe pairing for every bottle— that’s a big plus in my book. The per bottle cost breaks down to $15 per bottle, and I’m impressed to see that the value of the wines I received this month is actually higher than that.

Are you interested in unique and unusual wines? Have you tried Wine Awesomeness?

Wine Awesomeness finds some of the "coolest, craveworthy" wines to share with subscribers each month. Select three bottles of red, white, or mixed for your subscription. Each shipment includes a magazine including pairings, recipes, playlists and more.
