  1. I was just reading the comments here, and since I’ve been doing the some of the WSET (wine) certifications as well as recently signed up to receive the Vinebox quarterly subscription, I thought I’d chime in and address some of the questions or comments–I am not advocating for anyone to purchase this advent Vinebox. I agree it’s not for everyone, and although I’ve signed up for the quarterly subscription, I don’t see myself ordering this.

    Anyway, a sommelier at Vinebox selects the wines, which are from real European wineries. Many wine clubs and subscription boxes are indeed bulk wine clearinghouses or private label wines (large amounts of pre-made wine is purchased by the club, which then creates a label; you don’t actually ever know who made the wine) and are therefore hit or miss. I am thinking from my research that the regular Vinebox wines are in the mid-range of quality (I haven’t gotten my first box yet). The box that’s being sent to me includes a vertical tasting (same wine from the same winery from three different years so you can compare) of a Bordeaux, which leads me to having some faith in the selections of Vinebox’s somm.

    The Vinebox mini bottles of wine are 10cl, which is 3.3oz, so yes, not a a full pour, but I think the point of Vinebox is to taste the wine so you can decide to purchase and/or learn about types of wines. When doing a tasting, WSET recommends 5cl pours–first you assess by sight the color, clarity, and intensity, so it’s important to asses that on a set amount of wine in the glass. A full standard pour is too much. I could envision inviting a friend over to practice wine tasting and split each 10cl bottle.

    I see the Vinebox subscription as assisting with my education, a great way to try and compare lots of European wines. If I were to buy all these by the bottle, I’d be spending a lot more and possibly have nearly a full bottle of something I don’t care to finish…

  2. As I was scrolling, I said, “Ooh……ugh!” I have no problem spending $10 on a glass of wine if it’s a 5 oz pour and a good wine…of which I am very skeptical that these are.

  3. Way overpriced! You can get several bottles of wine you know you’re going to like for that amount of money.

  4. Yikes! That is a lot of money for 12 vials of wine and this is not an Advent Calendar.

  5. What a rip off

  6. Lol – “Ships to all states except for these fourteen…” 🙂 But yeah, I agree this seems really expensive although I would be curious about the total value. If this was around the $50 mark I may have bitten. I’m not into these advent calendars but this is one I may have actually considered. It would have been especially handy for when the whole family thing got to be a little much.

    • I totally agree that it’s a great idea, especially to help with holiday stress, but the box is too expensive!

  7. That’s a joke, each “classy tasting” is less than 1 glass of wine. Can’t even get it for the novelty value lol.

  8. You can get 5-6 bottles of fairly decent wine for that pricetag!

    • I was thinking a few more than that. I guess less decent wine works for me lol! Regardless, that’s crazy for a dozen wine “shooters”

  9. For the price it’s more of a novelty item/gift. My mil would absolutely love this!!! Problem is she likes to have more than 1 glass, this won’t last 12 nights….lol.

  10. Yikes, that’s the best price they could do?

  11. For the price, I could get several good bottles of wine.
