2-bottle Wine Club
by Plonk Wine Merchants

Overview: Featuring hand-picked, adventurous selections from around the world. Great value and great drinking in every shipment.

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: As this wine club continues to add more benefits like a satisfaction guarantee, discounts on reorders, partnerships to enhance their wine pairing, and more choices for customization, we only have praise for Plonk.

Gold Series Wine Club
by Gold Medal Wine Club

Overview: An incredibly popular wine club delivering the highest-quality wines among the two-bottle monthly wine clubs.

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!

Tasting Room by Lot18
by Lot18

Overview: A personalized wine program powered that gets to know your palate by starting your subscription with a tasting kit—real wine tasting in your living room. A significant step up from anonymous case clubs.

What We Love: Lot18 delivers on value, but at a higher level than other case clubs you might be considering. These selections are tailored to your preferences and they send exclusive wines you won't find anywhere else. Online account management is a big plus.

Could Be Better: We've had some complaints about quality. This is probably more a factor of their high-end marketing push which makes buyers think these are exceptional wines, when really, they're just good wines. Fortunately, they've just made a major upgrade to their customer service procedures and added a phone line, so we think they're heading in the right direction.

Club W Wine Experience
by Club W

Overview: Club W is a new kind of wine club—get a personalized list of available selections each month and then choose your own wine. Very flexible in size of shipment and what goes in the box each month. This makes for a great gift, too!

What We Love: We love the great selection of quirky wines mostly priced at $13 with some better wines sprinkled in. We are especially impressed with the whites and roses which deliver knockout value. 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"), and the red wines haven't been our cup of tea. It's hard to sell a good red wine for $13, but we think they can do better here.

by Wine of the Month Club ®

Overview: Tremendous value, excellent quality, and guaranteed wines make this a wine club perfect for anyone looking for an easy monthly wine club.

What We Love: There people who have been members of this wine club for over 20 years! The average wine club's membership length is 4 months.

Could Be Better: No recommendations for improvement here. This wine club sets the bar high as a standard for all other wine clubs.

Premier Wine Club
by The California Wine Club

Overview: When considering a two-bottle a month wine club for yourself or someone else, this wine club ought to be near the top of your list.

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: We'd like to see them offer bigger shipments.

Global Access Club
by Global Wine Cellars

Overview: A thoughtfully-curated selection of premium wines whose quality exceeds their price. We enjoyed the unusual selections and the beautiful tasting booklet which accompanies the shipment.

What We Love: The wines are very good, especially when compared to other wine clubs in this price range. The introductory offer and member re-order discounts make this an excellent way to buy wine online.

Could Be Better: This is a fairly limited offering for a wine club. We'd really like to see options for a pre-paid subscription as well as red-only and white-only selections, and monthly deliveries.

inClub Everyday
by Invino

Overview: Custom wine club where you choose everything. These everyday drinkers deliver amazing QPR due to clever buying strategies.

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.

Global Discovery Club
by Global Wine Cellars

Overview: A thoughtfully-curated selection of affordable wines whose quality exceeds their price. We enjoyed the unusual selections and the beautiful tasting booklet which accompanies the shipment.

What We Love: The wines are very good, especially when compared to other wine clubs in this price range. The introductory offer and member re-order discounts make this an excellent way to buy wine online.

Could Be Better: This is a fairly limited offering for a wine club. We'd really like to see more options like red-only and white-only selections, and monthly deliveries.

Red Trio Wine Club
by Cellars Wine Club

Overview: Love red wine? This is one of the better wine clubs for sampling red wines only. You can get nearly any wine club as red-only, but we like clubs focusing on red wine specifically for true red wine devotees.

What We Love: Cellars Wine Club is a (mostly) green company. They use earth-friendly packaging that is 100% recyclable.

Could Be Better: We'd like a better understanding of how they select their wines. We know some of what they've selected, but not anything about why.
