Overview: This wine club is a great for people who love California wine but are ready to try wines from other regions, too. Using the same methods and ideas of wine selection as they've used for years in California, The California Wine Club has translated their vision to an International stage. Get an in-depth look at new-to-you regions around the world with all of the perks of being a member of The California Wine Club.

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.

Overview: If you're giving wine of the month clubs to your employees or clients this year, we strongly recommend Corporate Corks. In addition to an excellent selection of high-quality wines (this is the Plonk Curated Club dressed up for gifting), you'll get top-tier customer service. Need to put your own materials in the boxes? Not a problem, they'll take care of it.

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.
