Robb Vices Subscription Box Review + Coupon – May 2017
Robb Vices is “a membership program centered on a monthly delivery of storied treasures.” Each month, they send a collection of curated products and/or experiences.
Subscribers should expect boxes to include “vices” like “exceptional wines and spirits to enjoy, foods to taste, tools, toys, accessories, and gadgets.”
The presentation of this box is amazing. One of the best unboxing experiences I’ve ever had!
Items are packed securely in laser-cut foam.
This box was sent to us at no cost for review. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)
The Subscription Box: Robb Vices

With each shipment, Robb Vices sends out a glossy booklet that outlines the products and curation story of each box.
This box is all about perfect pairings (rose and fresh oysters), and other simple delights for the warm weather!
Now, onto the items!
Macari Rosé 2015 – Value $20
This is made from a Merlot/Cabernet Franc blend with “aromas and flavors of raspberries, strawberries and watermelon.”
Out of the two wines in the box, I think this one will work with most food pairings. (It’s less sweet than The Drop Rosé, and Robb Vices recommends pairing it with everything from grilled meat to strong cheeses.)
This box included an oyster shell from Real Oyster Cult and a coupon for 20 fresh oysters of your choice.
The coupon is worth about $35.99.
Unfortuately, this coupon does not cover the shipping. (Which is $50 for overnight shipping.) It’s never fun when shipping costs more than the item itself, but I think the shipping price is fair for overnight delivery and the packaging needed to keep the oysters at the right temperature.
So, if you are an oyster fan, this is a great discount for super fresh oysters. If you aren’t into seafood (me), than this coupon will go unused.
Soireehome Tempour – Value $50
This is a wine chiller, pourer, stopper, and filter in one!
It is made with stainless steel so it won’t retain any flavor from the wine. The filter helps keep out any sediment, cork, etc, and the top is made with food-grade silicone.
It comes with a cleaner tool, too.
This seems like the perfect tool for outdoor dining. It keeps your wine chilled, and the stopper keeps bugs out.
It can be used with or without the chiller, too. (The chiller portion takes about an hour in the freezer to cool.)
Dana Confection Co. Nougat – Value $6
This nougat is made with pretzel pieces, macadamia nuts, coffee, and cocoa nibs.
My husband Eric was more than happy to be the taste tester for this item! Spoiler alert – he loved it! He decribed it as having a bit of a cappucino taste, and not overly sweet.
Vacavaliente Wine Carrier – Value $50?
(I believe these were made exclusively for Robb Vices, so I’m estimating on the value.)
The Vacavaliente brand is new to me (this is why I love Robb Vices) and they do impressive origami style work with leather. (Check out their Instagram account to see some of their other designs.)
This minimalist wine tote is made with a tan, stury leather and some barely-there white stitching.
The handles extend way above the bottle to make this easy to carry, too.
Vacavaliente Wine Rack – Value $60?
It doesn’t look like much here, but once you put in the 6 wine bottles it is pretty impressive:
And once I had the bottles in the holder for day, the leather holds the shape. (I was worried I’d take out a bottle or two and it would look a little wonky.)
This looks perfect on my kitchen counter, and I love that it is easy to pack down and store, too.
The Drop Rosé Wine Cans – Value $12.50 total
First, how adorable is this can design? I love the retro vibe, the pink, red and blue color combo, and the lobster! (I’ve been a bit obsessed with Llbsters ever since Phoebe told Ross that Rachel was his lobster.)
So, this wine already had a lot of build up before I even tasted it – would it live up to the fab packaging?
YES! This is the best rosé I’ve ever tasted. I tend to like sweeter wines, and this one is sweet, light, and crisp. Perfect for summer. (And unfortunately I think this is the one brand in the box that didn’t include a coupon for buying more!)
I’m saving my unopened can for a special occasion – it’s that good!
Verdict: This box has a retail value of about $200 (without including any of the discount offers.) If you count the oyster coupon, that brings the value up to about $240. The value is less than last month’s but still amazing. I loved sampling different wines I wouldn’t see in my local grocery store, and the leather wine accessories are so luxe. They fall into the category of things I wouldn’t splurge on and buy for myself, but would love to have!
And I love the summer simplicity vibes of this box!
This is my second time getting Robb Vices, and I already am thinking of buying gift subscriptions for a few family members – this box is so amazing to unbox and experience.
