The best quality wines in a quarterly case wine club for this price. When compared to Zagat, WSJ, and Laithwaite's, we'd pick the Cellars Quarterly Case club hands down.
Cellars Wine Club is a (mostly) green company. They use earth-friendly packaging that is 100% recyclable.
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. An Introductory Offer would be cool, too!
Quarterly Case Wine Clubs are popping up all over the place thanks to the astounding success of wine clubs like Zagat, WSJ, and the NY Times. Cellars has offered a quarterly case wine club for a long time, but they’ve recently retooled it to be more like their competitors at the big-name publications.
We liked their old format... but we love their new format even better. This quarterly wine club used to feature a smattering of wines from their other wine club selections for that month and you paid $300/shipment. While the price seemed steep it was actually great savings over their normal club prices. Those were good quality wines they were offering.
Now they’re competing at less than half the price and instead of giving you the same cheap wines from the same wineries/distributors that are selling into all of the other Quarterly case clubs on the market they're still offering their normal high-quality wine club selections! This is unbeatable value and quality in $130/month quarterly case wine club.
Cellars Wine Club offers a great deal of flexibility for when to start shipping and how often to ship.
Cellars offers a printable gift card for those last-minute gift purchases. We don’t want to judge a wine club buy it’s printable gift message, but the truth is, this one doesn’t really add anything to our opinion of the wine club.
The good news is, they have a great e-card offering. You can customize several aspects of this e-card to make it reflect your tastes. Again, we’re not judging the wine club based on it’s gift email offering... just letting you know they have one.

We have tasted several wines from the Cellars Wine Club clubs and we've been told that the selections for the quarterly case club are the same as those from the Premium Wine Club, the West Coast Wine Club, and the International Wine Club.
Based on the wines we sampled:
We can confidently state these wines are much better than the ones being delivered by competitive quarterly case wine clubs... at the same price!
