Fall is finally here! And I'm so excited for cozy evenings at home spent cooking delicious meals and enjoying them with a glass of wine. Speaking of wine, I want to share with you a new wine membership club I recently discovered. If you are a wine enthusiast or just someone who, like me, loves discovering new wines but feels overwhelmed by so many choices and doesn't feel like committing to a full bottle, then I suggest you check out VINEBOX.
Vinebox is a wine-by-the-glass subscription service. They send their members a box containing three or six glasses of wine. These are wines you won't find in your local grocery store. They are carefully selected by VINEBOX's team of sommeliers from the best wineries around the world. Each box contains tasting cards with food pairing recommendations, some fun facts about the wines, and an interesting quote. All wines come in glass vials that hold one serving. These little bottles are portable and very easy to carry around - I can totally see myself taking them with me on a picnic! Boxes are around $30 per month, less if you commit to either a 3-month or 1-year subscription, and shipping is free! You can skip a month or cancel your membership anytime. There's really no excuse to not try out VINEBOX.
Today I paired a glass of wine with Arugula Fig Salad. I love figs and always look for new meals to cook with them. I got the recipe for this fig salad from FlavourAndSavour.com. It's easy to put together and so delicious!
4 cups freshly washed and dried arugula leaves
4 - 6 fresh figs washed, stems removed and quartered or sliced in 1/8ths
1 cup fresh blackberries
1/2 cup goat cheese
1/2 cup walnuts
Honey Balsamic Vinaigrette
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp honey
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
You can sign up for a VINEBOX membership HERE. To get started you’ll take a quiz to determine your wine preferences and make sure you receive only the types of wine you really like. And if you fall in love with a certain kind of wine, you can order a full bottle of that wine or a similar one on their website. VINEBOX is a great way to discover new wines for yourself, not to mention, a great gift idea for someone else.
As a special offer for my readers, VINEBOX will give a 10% discount on membership when you sign up with the code SVETA10.
Hope you love VINEBOX as much as I do!
