For us, the big question come Thanksgiving is what to drink with our turkey and trimmings. Over the years, we’ve enjoyed everything from a made-in-New York Riesling to a California Merlot (who cares what was said in that “Sideways” movie?).
But 2020 will be a very different celebration because of the coronavirus pandemic and the safety-related mandate to celebrate Thanksgiving only with your immediate household. That means we may not have need for a full bottle of wine — a glass or two will likely suffice.
Or perhaps a test tube or two.
Vinebox, an enterprising four-year-old company, offers just that — individual servings of wine in glass tubes. You can buy a quarterly subscription, priced at $72-$79 per shipment, that delivers a box of nine tubes every three months. Or during the holiday season, you can purchase a one-time shipment of a dozen tubes, aptly called the 12 Nights of Wine, for $129.
Either way, the idea is to explore a range of wines without having to commit to a whole bottle, explains company founder Matt Dukes, a former corporate attorney whose passion for vino led him to create Vinebox. Dukes says he is adamant about sourcing from top established vintners, particularly in Europe, noting that the company doesn’t purchase the kind of private-label wines often featured in wine clubs. (Let’s just say such wines don’t always have the best reputation.)
