Winecrasher Club
by Winecrasher
All-Around Rating:

Overview: This is a brand new wine club where every wine they ship is rated 89 points or better by one of four trusted critics (Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, Wine Spectator, Antonio Galloni's Vinous Media and Burghound). They aim to please, so don't be afraid to call 'em up for more information or customizations.

What We Love: Their "Best Price" program ensures they've priced their wines at the best price on the Internet by using Wine-Searcher.com Pro to check all available prices (they check when they add the wine to their site).

Could Be Better: They're new and this is somewhere in the pipeline, but we'd like to see pre-paid gift subscriptions as well as options for bi-monthly and quarterly deliveries, too.

Discovery Wine Club
by WineTasting.com
All-Around Rating:

Limited Time Offer
Free Gifts with Purchase!
Bamboo wine accessory kit (foil cutter, corkscrew, and bottle stopper). No coupon necessary.

Overview: The Wine Tasting Network offers two entry-level wine clubs, this is the one that's delivered quarterly. For better-quality wines from a wine club which rewards you with better savings the more you spend, this is a great wine club to join.

What We Love: We love when wine clubs really reward their members with additional value, and this club is chock full of it. In particular, they have excellent "buy more save more" pricing, and free shipping on all club shipments.

Could Be Better: Greater transparency around how the wines are sourced would be helpful. We'd also like to see a history of past shipments online.

WineClubReviews Exclusive! Save 50% on your first shipment when enrolling in an ongoing subscription of the Signature Series. Use coupon code WCRHALF

Overview: For the wine connoisseur with a penchant for California wines, this wine of the month club is a sure thing. One of our most favorite wine clubs, the boutique gems delivered by The California Wine Club are ready to drink or can be cellared, but the real reason to join is the benefit of being a member of The California Wine Club — best-in-class customer service with your own personal wine consultant, a top-tier satisfaction guarantee, and discounts on reorders of your favorites (if they're still available).

What We Love: They reward volume purchasing! If you can afford it, by upgrading to the 4-bottle per shipment program you can save up to $13 per bottle.

Could Be Better: We have very little we feel The California Wine Club could do to improve. The prices sometimes feel a bit high, but when you factor in all of the benefits of membership, including a satisfaction guarantee, we still feel like you get what you pay for here.

inClub Everyday
by Invino
All-Around Rating:

Overview: inClub is a totally customizable wine club where you choose everything or let them choose for you. Their everyday drinkers deliver amazing quality-price-ratio due to clever buying strategies, but the magic is in focusing the wine club on your favorite regions, styles, and varietals. This is the perfect wine club gift for a very picky or knowledgable wine drinker.

What We Love: No other wine club has ever, and probably will ever, deliver this level of customization. You want it? You got it. It's perfect for any oenophile.

Could Be Better: We'd love to see a ton more pre-made "personality profiles" to make sign-up at any price a breeze. Also, the ability to buy a case at a time would be fabulous.

Rose Wine Club
by Invino
All-Around Rating:

Overview: Rose (Pink) wine is hot right now. For summer sipping you can't beat it, but it's a delightful white-alternative for any time of the year. You'll always pay less-than-retail prices and you can change your shipment options any time. inClub is a totally customizable wine club where you choose everything or let them choose for you. Their selections deliver an impressive quality-price-ratio due to clever buying strategies. The best part? If you change your mind later, they have every kind of wine you can think of and you can completely customize your shipments.

What We Love: No other wine club has ever, and probably will ever, deliver this level of customization. You want it? You got it. It's perfect for any oenophile.

Could Be Better: We'd love to see Invino extend the inClub value even further by offering a case club.

Wine Awesomeness

All-Around Rating:

Limited Time Offer

Two Introductory Offers! If you're buying the $45 subscription, use the $10 off link (22%). If you're buying the $75 subscription, use the save 20% on your first shipment link ($15).

Overview: Among other "journey around the wine world" clubs, Wine Awesomness stands out for exceptional educational materials. This is a great wine club for you if you're not sure yet if you're a "wine club" person or if you're looking to give a gift to a young wine-lover who's just starting to discover the world of wine.

What We Love: The level of sophistication in both design and writing of their monthly magazine and how the wine isn't expensive but is a very good value.

Could Be Better: For a variety of reasons, folks sometimes don't want monthly shipments. We'd like to see them offer quarterly shipments and gift packaging, too.

The World of Wine Club
by Vinesse
All-Around Rating:

Overview: One of our favorite International wine clubs and one of our favorite Vinesse wine clubs, too. Each shipment contains six wines which introduce you to a new wine region — there are many clubs that do this, but not with six bottles and helpful tasting notes that tell you when it's time to drink your adventures in a bottle. A really fun wine club!

What We Love: Consistent quality and excellent "discovery" club enhances your wine knowledge and expands your palate.

Could Be Better: We'd love it customers were rewarded for ordering the bigger shipments. "Buy more save more" would be great!

Limited Time Offer
Buy more, save more! Save 5% on 4-shipment gifts. No coupon needed.

Overview: Whether you choose just the wine or you upgrade to include the regional gourmet treats with the Adventure Package, this quarterly wine club will take you on your own wine-drinking adventure around the world. Extensive regional and winery information goes out with each shipment, chock full of photos that help you feel like you're not really at home, but in a far away wine region.

What We Love: It's hard to compare a wine club that includes extra goodies to one that doesn't, because come on, most wine lovers love food, too! The fact that you can't get these wines from any other company in the U.S. doesn't hurt either.

Could Be Better: We don't have any suggestions for what to improve within the International Series wine club. Yay!

Chardonnay Wine Club
by Vinesse
All-Around Rating:

Overview: We've gone back and forth on Vinesse over the years, but we recently received several shipments from them, and they've really stepped up their game. If you're interested in more than just California Chardonnay and you don't want to spend a ton of money on it, we really recommend this Chardonnay wine club. Plus, you get Vinesse's rock solid satisfaction guarantee for every bottle, taking all of the risk out of joining a wine club.

What We Love: By focusing on Chardonnays that come from some of the world's cheaper wine regions, you get to enjoy all that Chardonnay has to offer and save a few bucks while you're at it

Could Be Better: We'd always like to know which wines have been in recent shipments. Their transparency could be better.
