Winter 2017/18 Vine Oh! “Oh! La La!” box review time!
If you haven’t heard, Vine Oh! is a subscription box that delivers 2 premium bottles of wine and a selection of full-sized lifestyle products to your door on a quarterly basis. Each box will include 2 bottles of premium wine — your choice of whites, reds, or a mix — and 5-6 full-size lifestyle products that are “fun, rejuvenating and delicious”. Items can include candles, bath products, sweet treats, home decor, wine accessories, and more. Subscribers are also able to purchase additional bottles of wine from the Vine Oh! shop. (If you order 4 or more bottles, you receive 20% off every bottle plus FREE shipping!) Every quarterly box is guaranteed to have a total retail value of $120 or more.

Let’s see what’s in the Winter 2017/18 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.
2016 New Crush Santa Ynez Valley Riesling ($22.99)
From Vine Oh!:
New Crush Santa Ynez Valley Riesling delivers a superb balance of ripeness and sweet flavors with aromas of jasmine, white pepper, lemon zest, dried apricot and a touch of wintergreen notes creating a sweet, delicious finish.
I believe this is a newer offering from Vine Oh! and my husband described it as “sweet and fruity”. We’re not exactly wine connoisseurs over here. 😉
2016 New Crush California Pinot Noir ($19.99)
From Vine Oh!:
New Crush Pinot Noir is rich aromatically with lychee, cranberry, kola, raspberry, red cherries with 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 make this wine a bright, food-friendly companion.
We’ve received this variety in previous boxes and my husband always enjoys it.
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 Oh! La La! 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.
Mary Square Stainless Bottle ($31)
Okay, so I really don’t need any more water bottles in my life at the moment, but this one is just too pretty not to keep! I absolutely love the black floral print and generously sized opening at the mouth (easier to clean!). It’s made of food grade 18/8 stainless steel and is double wall vacuum insulated to keep liquids hot or cold for up to 12 hours. It even comes with its own little “message in a bottle”, with mine being a Message of Courage. 🙂
Violet + Brooks Sylvia Charm Bangle ($28)
A cute accessory for Valentine’s Day and beyond, this dainty gold bangle bracelet features a small heart-shaped charm filled with shimmering crystals. It measures 2.5″ diameter with an opening of approximately 1″. Wear it alone or pair with other bracelets for a fun layered look.
Mirabella Glisten Eyeshadow Collection ($25)
A 7-shade eyeshadow palette ideal for everyday nude/neutral/natural looks. It features a fragrance-free formula that’s packed with antioxidant and anti-aging ingredients, including Vitamin E for protection against free radical damage. The highly-pigmented shadows are also completely free of talc, parabens, and gluten. Nice!
Lady Jayne Eyemask ($8)
A handy (and stylish!) accessory to have on hand for travel, this satiny polyester sleep mask is printed with the phrase “I woke up like this” in shimmery gold text. The background is a very soft pink shade and it has a covered elastic strap for a comfortable fit.
Brix Chocolate for Wine ($6)
Crafted specifically to compliment wine, this chocolate was blended to enhance the nuances found in them without confusing the palate. This particular variety — “Smooth Dark” — is best paired with champagne, riesling, pinot noir, or vintage port. To enjoy, swirl and taste your wine, then break off a bite-sized piece of chocolate and savor the smells & flavors.
Another impressive selection of items from Vine Oh!! My favorite products this time were the gorgeous water bottle, talc-free eyeshadow palette, and dainty heart bangle. The total retail value of this season’s box was over $135! — Remember, for a limited time (or while supplies last) you can get $10 off the current quarter’s box with coupon code “VineOhYay”! You can also save $15 on an annual subscription — no coupon code needed!
