California Treasures
by Vinesse
All-Around Rating:

Overview: Value-minded selections for California wine lovers

What We Love: California wines can get pricey because real estate is so expensive here, but Vinesse finds great bargains to represent California

Could Be Better: Considering there'???s a glut of high-end California wine on the market, we think this wine club could deliver better quality wine for these value prices

Elevant Society Wine Club
by Vinesse
All-Around Rating:

Overview: Reliably good quality premium wines. Includes some real gems and we often see their selections on Lot18.

What We Love: We've been super impressed with the quality and value of nearly every wine we've received from the Elevant Society wine club. We think you will be, too.

Could Be Better: We'd like to see a little less of the superlatives... "super-premium" wines don't carry a $35 price tag. Regardless, these are definitely premium wines worth their price.

Zinfandel Wine Club
by Gourmet Food Clubs
All-Around Rating:

Overview: A rare wine club focusing only on red Zinfandel. If you are or know a Zin lover, this is a no-brainer decision.

What We Love: Paso Robles Zinfandel is typically a big fruity wine that goes best with BBQ, pizza, and Italian food. We love that this wine club is an opportunity to sample many wonderful Paso Robles Zinfandel wines.

Could Be Better: We'd like them to publish what wines they've shipped to customers in the past and we'd like it if the website were more user-friendly.

American Cellars (ACWC)
by Vinesse
All-Around Rating:

Limited Time Offer
For joining the American Cellars Wine Club today, you'll receive a 6-piece insulated wine tote include with your third wine club shipment as a token of our appreciation—a $37.95 value.

Overview: Mediocre wines at best. Not even a great value really. We find this club to be utterly disappointing.

What We Love: You can decide exactly how much you wine you want to receive, unprecedented options on order size and frequency.

Could Be Better: We're all for cheap wine, but we really would prefer our cheap wine to actually be cheap. These prices are too steep for cheap.
