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").

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.

What We Love: Industry-leading customer service, no ho-hum selections allowed, always over-delivers on value, and it's a great wine club for foodies.

Could Be Better: We'd love to see an option for "drink now" wines that don't need to be laid down in the cellar for another 5-15 years. Maybe one of each in each shipment. Greater transparency around how the wines are sourced would also be helpful and we'd like to see a history of past shipments online.
Overview: There's a bit of a trend developing among wine collectors where aged wine has become a major theme. This Aged Cabernet wine club is unusual and ought to satisfy Cali Cab lovers everywhere.
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: While we get the sense that you'll always pay a fair price for the wines you're being sent, the price range offered and lack of clear proclamation of that fact makes just a teeny bit nervous.
Overview: A top-tier wine club designed for collectors and connoisseurs that is sure to impress you and your guests.
What We Love: For a wine club that picks out such excellent wine, they don't need to be so customer-friendly on their extra features... but they are! We can't help but love their attention to detail.
Could Be Better: We don't have any suggestions for what to improve within the Diamond Series wine club. Yay!
