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.

Special Selections
by Uncorked Ventures
All-Around Rating:

Limited Time Offer
15% off all new wine club subscriptions and gifts. Use coupon code FIFTEEN at checkout.

Overview: Uncorked Ventures focuses on California, Oregon, and Washington wines and delivers high-quality selections from small-production wineries. This is their mid-level club featuring ultra-premium wines from the smallest productions. When you're ready to discover some of the best wine available from U.S. producers and don't want to decide for yourself which wines are worth the money before you buy, try this wine club.

What We Love: We're quite impressed with most of the past selections from Uncorked Ventures, especially as they include some of our favorite West Coast wine-growing regions.

Could Be Better: We'd love to see more content on their website to talk about their wine-selection process, some of the awesome stories from the road, and even their monthly newsletter.

Buy more, save more! Save 5% on 12-month gifts. No coupon needed.

Overview: Garagiste is a term which describes up-and-coming winemakers who toil away creating artisanal wines in their, well not usually, garages. If you're someone who wants to be up on the latest and greatest future stars of California winemaking, try the mostly red wine selection of Garagiste wines from the Gold Medal Wine Club.

What We Love: We look forward to discovering new wineries from all over California. We know we're getting very good wine at below-retail prices and helping small family businesses grow.

Could Be Better: Like other Gold Medal Wine Club series, we'd really like to see more information about the winemaking and viticulture in the educational materials.

Platinum Series
by Gold Medal Wine Club
All-Around Rating:

Limited Time Offer
Buy more, save more! Buy 12 months and save 5%. Upgrade to 4 bottles to save another 5% on any number of shipments! No coupon needed.

Overview: If you're ready to move beyond mid-priced wines but not yet ready to make the leap to luxury, this wine of the month club is a great step to take. You'll get all of the benefits of being a member with The Gold Medal Wine Club, but you'll experience truly premium-quality wines that you won't find at the grocery store or most local wine shops either.

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 Platinum Series wine club. Yay!
