WINC Wine Club
by WINC
All-Around Rating:

Limited Time Offer
WineClubReviews.net Exclusive - Best Deal Available! Buying for yourself? Get $25 in credits toward your first shipment when you use our links!

Overview: Winc (formerly known as Club W) set out to change the wine industry and for their customers, they've achieved it. By delivering unprecedented value at $13 a bottle and personalized selections geared for every palate, Winc is a standout wine of the month club. If you're ready for more sophisticated wines, you can upgrade to Winc Select. Either way, you can save even more money by participating in their myriad rewards programs.

What We Love: We love how they go above and beyond to reward loyal customers with substantial savings and invitations to a premium level program. No other wine club offers this level of loyalty rewards, or this much fun!

Could Be Better: Winc works so hard to make their service great that it's hard for us to think of something they should do to make it even better.

Limited Time Offer
Save 15% on Gifts Buy a 3-month or longer gift and save 15%. Good until Jan 15, 2017.


Free Shipping Offer: Buy a 1-year quarterly gift subscription and get free shipping (worth $56). No code needed. Good until Dec 31.

Overview: If you or some you know loves California wine, this is the perfect wine club to join (or send as a gift). Each month you'll get two bottles of hand-picked wines from some of California's best boutique wineries (small production wineries that usually don't have widespread distribution). You'll discover the hidden corners of California's wine country and enjoy gems from prominent regions, too.

What We Love: When it comes to places to find deals on wine, we often look to The California Wine Club. Not only do they start with great prices on their Premier Series wines, but they also have fantastic discounts after the shipments have gone out.

Could Be Better: The California Wine Club now regularly offers introductory discounts, and that makes this wine club a better value while still delivering fantastic quality. It's now as perfect as it's going to be!

Gold Series Club

All-Around Rating:

Limited Time Offer
Wine Club Reviews Exclusive Deal! Get a bonus bottle of 93pt Cabernet Sauvignon, a free artist-designed gift box, free gift bags, and a free printed gift notice on all gifts of 3 months or longer! Get this exclusive deal!

Overview: California is home to some of the world's best wine regions and wineries, many of which are boutique wineries (wine jargon for small wineries with little-to-no distribution). This wine of the month club is a great way to get introduced to what California wine has to offer at reasonable prices. This wine club makes an excellent gift.

What We Love: Consistency. We've been receiving their shipments for months and we've never had a wine we didn't like. You can't really ask for more than that from a wine club.

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

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.

What We Love: Unprecedentedly fantastic flexibility in billing, shipping, customization, and what type of goodies to get.

Could Be Better: The wine club? It's great. The website? A little hard to use. If you're heading over there, please be patient. The effort is worth it!

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

Overview: This wine club is perfect for Cabernet lovers who lack the patience to cellar wines, or for those who have come to love Cabernet Sauvignon more recently. Each shipment contains perfectly-cellared boutique California Cabernet Sauvignon that's ready to drink now.

What We Love: We like that they bring you a variety of aged Cabernets, at different levels of quality from exceptional to rarified. While your monthly shipment price will vary, so will the different terroirs and winemaker expression of the king of all varietals.

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.

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.

Limited Time Offer
We've got the Best Deal on Club W—Guaranteed! Get $25 in credits toward your first shipment when you use our links and complimentary shipping on 4+ bottles! No coupon code needed but to get this deal, click our links.

Overview: Club W is now Winc Wine! Everything we said about Club W is still true and applies to Winc, except Winc is even better because they keep finding ways to improve it. Personalized selection every month (including picking your own wines), great value because they've eliminated the middle man, lots of rewards for loyal customers.

What We Love: We love the great selection of quirky wines all priced at $13 or $19, and are especially impressed with the whites and roses. We love that you can put as many wines in your box as you want, and that shipping is free on 6 or more bottles.

Could Be Better: The wine descriptions tend to purposely avoid helpful terms that experienced wine drinkers look for in selecting bottles (i.e., no references to "buttery" or "acidic").

Curated Wine Club
by Plonk Wine Club
All-Around Rating:

Limited Time Offer
Free bottle of sparkling wine on any 6 or 12 month gifts. Use promo code FREEBUBBLY. Good through 12/31.


Get a FREE double-hinged corkscrew with your first shipment. If you've never used one, you'll see why it's the best way to open a bottle of wine!

Overview: Tired of ho-hum wines but not sure where to start? Try this wine club! The Plonk wine clubs have always been among our favorites because of the proprietor's preference for quirky but delectable wines made from grapes and regions you've never heard of (and some you have). Whether you choose two, four, or twelve bottles you'll be glad you picked Plonk. Also, if you're thinking of going red-only or white-only, you'll actually get (two or four) different selections.

What We Love: This is a truly unique wine club with a bonus bottle on sign-up and a focus on Natural Wine (organic/biodynamic) that travels the world hunting for your next wine deal.

Could Be Better: Nothing. We're pretty stoked about these guys.

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

What We Love: The California Wine Club has an excellent reputation and they've been in business a long time. We like that it's a family business supporting other family businesses.

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.
