Review of My VitiBox UK
My VitiBox is a wine lovers community. Their aim is to reveal the secrets of the world of wine to their subscribers. With the Wine Tasting subscription, subscribers will get to taste 2 bottles of great wine hand-selected by Alain Gousse, My VitiBox’s expert wine taster, month after month. Along with the wine, wine enthusiasts are also provided with articles, tips to become an expert in wine tasting, and facts on the art of winemaking as well as suggestions for food and wine pairings. My VitiBox also helps their customers to create their vintage wine cellar month after month with the subscription plan Cellar Master.
My VitiBox’s selection process is rigorous and demanding. The team selects only high quality wine and prefers working with talented and emerging wineries. Each month the Vitibox covers a different aspect of the world of wine and the wineries need to be correlated with the theme of the month.
My VitiBox’s objective is to teach its subscribers how to chose the wine at the restaurant, how to enjoy great wine, how to recognise the aromas, how to recognise the grape varieties and the year, and what the best food and wine pairings are. There are 2 types of subscriptions – the Wine Tasting Subscription and the Cellar Plan. The Wine Tasting subscription is designed for those wishing to discover the world of wine within the next year. By subscribing to My VitiBox Wine Tasting Plan, the subscriber learns how to choose, taste, and enjoy great wine. Within a year, the subscriber will become a true connoisseur. The Cellar Plan is perfect if you want to begin to build a vintage wine cellar by storing wine to lay down for 3 to 10 years month after month. You can also subscribe to both options since they are strongly complementary.
The Wine Tasting Subscription comes in 2 options – the Colours and Flavours Subscription and the Red Passion Subscription. The famous Colours and Flavours subscription comes in all varieties of wine, while the Red Passion subscription will include only great selections of red wine for red wine lovers and amateurs alike.
My VitiBox members can subscribe to either a 3-month, 6-month, or 12-month plan. Members can also opt for the non-binding monthly subscription, with automatic withdrawal. Subscription to a 3-month, 6-month, or 12-month plan entails the subscriber to pay everything in advance and precludes them from cancelling the subscription before the term is up.
Subscribers also have the privilege of purchasing larger quantities of wine at special prices.
VitiBoxes will arrive at the subscriber’s door around the 15th of every month. The bottle of wines will be packaged in a shockproof case to protect the contents inside. The risk that the wine is damaged in transport is minimal.
A great subscription for your first few forays into the world of wine appreciation although bottles can sometimes be a bit hit and miss
