This wine club is...


A California wine club featuring some of California's finest wineries, at prices that are downright reasonable.

What We Like

The amazing selection of wineries and the value-pricing. We're pretty sure you can't beat these prices and we don't expect that from Dean & DeLuca... but we do expect excellence.


Absolutely nothing. We wish more wine clubs were like this one.

Dean & DeLuca

You may be wondering why this wine club is on a couple of our Top 5 Wine Clubs lists but only has a rating of 3.5 stars... well, that's because our value rating includes a lot of "extras" that Dean & DeLuca doesn't offer, but for the one that matters most—an introductory wine club featuring amazing wines at great prices—this wine club is near the top of our list.

Copain, Margerum, Paradigm, Talullah, Stonefly, Duckhorn... these aren’t wineries we expect to find in anyone’s wine clubs but their own. We often can’t even find these wines in wine stores! If you’re going to purchase a 3-bottle a month wine club, or spend $60 a month for a wine club we can’t possible recommend one more than this one. It may not be the one that delivers the most value or customization, but it delivers wines that are sure to delight you or a gift recipient. Every time.

It’s important to know that Dean & DeLuca specializes in California wines, so essentially this is a California wine club. While we love California wine more than any other region, not everyone does so we wanted to be sure to point that out.
