Overview: Winc (formerly known as Club W) set out to change the wine industry and for their customers, they've achieved it. By delivering unprecedented value at $13 a bottle and personalized selections geared for every palate, Winc is a standout wine of the month club.

What We Love: We love how they go above and beyond to reward loyal customers with substantial savings and invitations to a premium level program. No other wine club offers this level of loyalty rewards, or this much fun!

Could Be Better: Winc works so hard to make their service great that it's hard for us to think of something they should do to make it even better.

You'll discover the hidden corners of California's wine country and enjoy gems from prominent regions, too.

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: The California Wine Club now regularly offers introductory discounts, and that makes this wine club a better value while still delivering fantastic quality. It's now as perfect as it's going to be!

Winecrasher Club
by Winecrasher
All-Around Rating:

Overview: This is a brand new wine club where every wine they ship is rated 89 points or better by one of four trusted critics (Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, Wine Spectator, Antonio Galloni's Vinous Media and Burghound). They aim to please, so don't be afraid to call 'em up for more information or customizations.

What We Love: Their "Best Price" program ensures they've priced their wines at the best price on the Internet by using Wine-Searcher.com Pro to check all available prices (they check when they add the wine to their site).

Could Be Better: They're new and this is somewhere in the pipeline, but we'd like to see pre-paid gift subscriptions as well as options for bi-monthly and quarterly deliveries, too.

WineClubReviews Exclusive! Save 50% on your first shipment when enrolling in an ongoing subscription of the Signature Series. Use coupon code WCRHALF

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.
