Costco 4 Bottle European Wine Tour Boxed Set

Costco 4 Bottle European Wine Tour Boxed Set

I’ve always been curious about this European wine box that first showed up last year near me, but seemed to sell out fairly fast (and before I had a chance to grab one). It’s back this year, at $29.99 which is the same price I believe as the prior year with a similar sampling of wines from France, Spain, Italy and Portugal.

It’s taken me a little while to dig through these wines because I’ve spent the last week engulfed in the Wine Advent Calendars. But having opened all four of these bottles, I can say this box is one you might want to put on your list too. It’s quite the value for the money, figuring you’re only paying $7.50/bottle.

So here’s what’s inside with some quick tasting notes.

2018 Haut Vignobles Bordeaux
This is a Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon blend; the wine is medium bodied, nice cherry fruit, plum flavor, dry and oaky finish. A nice Bordeaux.

2018 Campo al Moro Toscana
This is a 100% Sangiovese; pours a medium garnet in the glass; medium bodied, nice in the mouth and fruit forward; round cherry flavor; peppery in the finish; A perfect pizza wine.

2016 Tierra de Palacio Crianza
This wine is 100% Tempranillo; pours a medium ruby with dried fruit, cranberry on the nose; spicy black cherry, plum, cranberry flavors; finishes dry.

2019 Convento do Gloria
This wine is from Lisbon, Portugal and is comprised of 100% Tinto Roriz; it is pale purple on the pour, medium in body with dark fruit, blueberry and blackberry flavors; a touch of oak into a sticky finish.  Nice wine.

The box this set comes in is pretty cool too. It’s made in Bordeaux, and is sealed shut, so you have to pry it open to get the wines out (easily done with a flathead screwdriver).

I’m not going to assign a rating for these wines. In my opinion, they would each land in that 86-88 point ballpark, which is pretty impressive at $7.50 a bottle.

Each wine is very reflective of its origin, and the box provides exactly what it promises, a nice tour of Europe with curated wine selections from many of the top areas. Enjoy.

How do you open the box without breaking the bottles. I will be damaging the wine?

I bought and it was terrible, bad, horrible. I opened 3 of them and very bad. The last one I put in the trash without opening it.

For your wind advent calendars, are they only available in the US? We have tried to find one at our Costco in Lethbridge, Alberta and they do not have them. They do have the 4 bottles of the red wine in the wooden crate that you have on line here. We really hope to get a calendar as they look fantastic.

Hi Lillian, we are independent of Costco so we don’t really have any extra info into the wine’s distribution. I see a few people have posted to the site also asking about availability in Canada but I have yet to hear from anyone who has seen the boxes there. I hope it turns up for you.
