Let’s see what’s in the Winter 2017 Vine Oh! box!
Everything was shipped in a large box with the wine bottles packed in the bottom and a smaller, separate box of lifestyle items on top.
I’ll start with the wine and unbox the additional items afterward.
The bottles were packed together in a cardboard wine shipper to protect them in transit.
A note from Vine Oh! about the wines I received: We have two new varietals coming for the Holiday Box but they are not yet ready to send for your initial review. New Subscribers may receive one of our NEW wines for Holiday based on the preference they selected.
Both of the following wines were included in the Spring 2017 Vine Oh! box, but as stated above, new subscribers may receive different varietals depending on their profile preferences.
2016 New Crush California Pinot Noir ($19.99)
From Vine Oh!:
This is an expressive Pinot Noir wine aromatically, with lychee, cranberry, kola, raspberry, red cherries abounding hints of cinnamon and clove, wildflower honey, and cacao. Flavors of red fruits including pomegranate are accented by wisps of cedar and a hint of leather. This wine has a bright, food-friendly profile.
I’m personally not a wine drinker, so there’s not much else I can add here. 😉
From Vine Oh!:
NightVine, perfect for the nights that require reflection and rejuvenation. NightVine Chardonnay is from one of the most respected areas for Chardonnay in the Russian River Valley. Delivers aromas of ripe pear, vanilla, caramel, and citrus leads to flavors of whipped sweet cream, balanced oak and a buttery mouth feel.
The lifestyle items were all packed into their own Vine Oh! box.
A peek inside!
A paper sleeve held individual information cards for each one of the items.
The card above listed all of the items in the Winter 2017 box, along with photos and retail values for each one.
Individual cards went into more details about each product and also included special offers for Vine Oh! subscribers.
This adorable cheese board would make the perfect hostess gift! It features a tree-shaped wood board covered in holiday designs, along with a hatchet-style knife with red painted handle. The board even has a built-in knife stand at the base of the tree’s trunk. Clever!
These pretty mosaic earrings are a great accessory for the holiday season. — They almost look like sparkly wreaths! I like that they have an almost vintage vibe and remind me of the bling-ed out jewelry that my grandmother wore from the 40’s & 50’s.
Oooh! I can never have too many pairs of cozy socks. As you may have gathered from their name, these truly are incredibly SOFT and cozy! I love the fun winter-inspired design and will definitely be curling up in these during the holiday season. 🙂
Create the look of dramatically long & thick lashes with this fiber lash mascara set from Pure Cosmetics. The kit includes a lengthening mascara infused with Widelash Growth Serum, along with a tube of Lash Lengthening Fibers. Just follow the instructions to prime, build, and seal to achieve a false lashes look without actual false lashes.
The final item in the box was a duo of decadent treats from CST Sweets! Included were a package of handmade Chocolate Ribboned Almond Biscotti and a piece of Dark Chocolate Toffee. All CST Sweets products are made to order in small batches using the highest quality ingredients.
Although I’m not much of a wine drinker, I still always enjoy reviewing Vine Oh!! I love how they pair the wines with fun lifestyle items — many of which are selected to go along with the current season. My favorite items this time were the cozy socks, holiday cheese board, and pretty earrings. The total retail value of this season’s box was over $140! 😀 Remember — For a limited time (thru 11/30 or while supplies last), you can get $10 off the Oh! Ho! Ho! Winter 2017 Box with coupon code “WineYay”!
