A huge Thank you to Steve and the Team over at SIPP Box for asking me to review their Monthly Wine Subscription Box.
This is a first for me, as we have never tried a Wine Subscription, can you believe? I set about doing some research online, and they are the highest rated on Trust Pilot! With hundreds of reviews and a 5 star excellent score! You will see my genuine reaction to this a little further down in my unboxing video.
The box arrived safely via DHL, who text or email you a time slot for delivery. It was obvious what it was, as you can see the box is MASSIVE…
I really love it when a box wows me on a live unboxing, you can watch my video back on our Facebook Group, or by clicking play below on our YouTube Channel…
How does it work?
I was provided with a code to place my own order from start to finish, so that I could experience things exactly as you would.
It is really simple to navigate their Website. It suggested 3 wines for me as their current monthly selection. You could then change any of them based on your preference. I kept 2 of their suggestions, and changed the Red as I prefer a more fruity Red Wine.
When you get to the checkout, you can choose next day delivery, or select a day that suits you. I ordered it on purpose the day before as I knew I would be home to intercept the parcel. This is brilliant for anyone who has a busy lifestyle, it is really flexible.
How much does it cost?
Just £29 a month for 3 Bottles of Wine (usual price). Wait for it…. we have an EXCLUSIVE discount!! This is one NOT to be missed…

I was so impressed with the cards and the welcome pack. There is so much detail included about each Wine. It tells you about the producer, and there is a section for you to complete tasting notes should you wish to. There is even a personalised welcome card! The attention to detail with this box is above and beyond what you would expect.
If you are a techie, you can download the SIPP Wine App, or even ask Amazon Alexa to tell you about the Wine you are drinking in more detail. There are numbers on each bottle to simplify it (you don’t need to pronounce the long names, ha!).
Lets get onto the important part, the testing…
Red Wine has to be my personal favourite. It is a perfect marriage with Cheese, which is possibly my most favourite thing in the world to eat. We are often found tucking into a sharing platter at home, and having this to try out gave us an excuse to fill the shopping trolley.
So, being northern and all I do have a habit of judging a Red based on the level of bad head the following day. This one has been safely Mel approved, and I can state that no headache was caused by the intake of this Wine. I was so happy with this, it is deep but fruity; and so very smooth. I would personally re purchase this. Which leads me to mention that you can do just that on the SIPP Website. You automatically get 20% off any purchases as a member, and free delivery on orders over £40 too!
We paired this with crumbed Seabass, Broccoli & Cheese, and Potato Rosti. On the card it stated Seafood as the perfect match, so we decided a Meal for 2 for the second night was a great idea.
This is a crisp, elegant and thirst quenching Wine. It makes you put it down then immediately lift the glass up again. My mouth is drooling now as I type!
I have decided to gift the Brut to a good cause, as one of the ladies at Work is collecting prizes for Clic Sargent. The bottle has a stunning design and will make for a fabulous gift.
The added extra free items are the Balsamic Vinegar which was a perfect accompaniment to our Meat & Cheese Platter above, and a beautiful corkscrew with wooden veneer handle. It has the SIPP logo printed on the metal. These were a lovely unexpected addition to the box. It really makes the experience more special.
We are made up with this subscription. From beginning to end the experience was flawless. We enjoyed sitting in the evening and relaxing just the two of us, a glass full and some delicious food.
The pricing is bang on too. Can you even argue with the offer above, giving you your first 2 deliveries for just £14.50 each. That is crazy cheap. What are you waiting for? The links are below to order, off you pop…
