inClub by Invino Reviews

Updated & Published February 24, 2015
We've been big fans of the inClub by Invino for a long time. This is the only wine club where you can customize your shipments by preference—any preference of region, grape, style—and pay discounted prices on top of that. The totally customized club can be a little offputting at the beginning, but becomes a dream after a few shipments. So, to help get you started, we worked with Invino to develop several pre-made clubs that you can still customize to your palate's content. Check out this list of amazing clubs: French Wine Club, Bordeaux Wine Club, Burgundy Wine Club, Italian Wine Club, Spanish Wine Club, Australia & New Zealand Wine Club, Sonoma Wine Club, Napa Wine Club, Cabernet Sauvignon Wine Club, Pinot Noir Wine Club, Champagne Club, Rose Wine Club, Aromatic White Wines Club, and Dessert Wine & Sweet Wine Club

What kind of wine club buyer are you?

Coming soon to!


We bet you already know what we do... yep you guessed it, we review wine clubs. We do this to help wine-lovers find the best wine club for themselves or as a gift, all in the name of enjoying drinking wine on any budget.

Our wine club reviews consist of several steps to ensure the wine clubs we have on the site are well-vetted. These wine club review steps include:

Check Out the Wines: We review the wines each wine club has sent in the past (as shown on their own website or, if needed, as requested via email). We verify awards and points, as well as size of production, and we evaluate Quality-to-Price Ratio (QPR). Whenever possible we receive shipments from the wine clubs to keep a trained eye on the quality, too.

Scout the Deals: We look to see what kinds of discounts and perks the wine clubs offer their members. Some wine clubs have introductory offers or provide free-shipping so we want to know about that, too.

Check for Customization: Many wine clubs offer great flexibility in the selection of wine color, frequency of shipping, and payment methods. We use this bend-over-backwards information to help us rate wine clubs.

Read the Fine Print: We check all marketing copy, customer service information, FAQ pages, and return policies. When we find holes in the information, we contact the wine clubs to make sure we know what they will do for their customers and what they won’t.

Our New Wine Club Ratings System

We are very pleased to announce our all new wine club ratings system.

We carefully considered how the wine club marketplace has changed over the last several years, and wanted to answer the question, "How can we be most useful in helping wine lovers and wine gifters choose the best wine club for them each and every time?"

We came to the conclusion that our old ratings system wasn’t getting the job done.

A Recap of the Old System

In our old system, we presented ratings from two different methods of measuring wine clubs as the same—we rated wine clubs with wines under $30 one way, and wines over $30 another way. We also treated Free Shipping as something extra special (when it’s really not) and didn’t focus enough on what types of wines were being sent.

The Challenge to Reinvent the System

So many new wine clubs have come on the market, offering personalization and conveniences like shipping notifications and online account management, that we felt we really needed to rethink how we were rating clubs. Instead of creating a ratings system based entirely on comparing wine clubs to each other, we wanted to address the ways in which wine clubs are often a better way to buy wine than the myriad ways we do today.

Did you know?
Shipping wine is complicated!

If you live in one of the alcohol-friendly states, it probably never occurred to you that we have some arcane shipping laws in this country when it comes to alcohol. This makes purchasing a wine club as a gift, or even for yourself, just a teeny bit more challenging.

FedEx will ship wine clubs to the green states in the map, IF the wine club has a license to do so in that state. Those purple states are mostly off limits to FedEx, but other shippers might be able to send wine to them. See how this gets complicated quickly?

But never fear! WineClubReviews is here! We've organized the wine clubs we've reviewed into handy "ship to state" pages, so you can send your wine to Maryland, Pennsylvania, and even Utah (well, maybe not Utah).

» Ship wine to Georgia
» Ship wine to Maryland
» Ship wine to Massachusetts
» Ship wine to New Jersey
» Ship wine to Pennsylvania
» Ship wine to Texas

If your state isn't listed above, you can still refine your shopping experience on our site to only see wine clubs that will ship to your state by following this link:
