Summary of California Classics & More Wine Club

A good wine club for people who love California wine and are willing to pay a little extra to ensure happiness in every shipment.

What We Love

It's a California wine club focusing on well-reviewed wines and wineries. What's not to love? We also love their flexible billing options.

What Could Be Better

As with other WineExpress wine clubs, we'd really like to see them drop the prices to reflect the customer loyalty inherent in a wine club subscription.

California Classics & More Wine Club Review

California wine clubs are not uncommon these days, and access to great California wines is the reason. This California Classics wine club is a great opportunity to introduce yourself to top wineries and wines from around California.

This wine club doesn't get a great rating from us for a couple of reasons. The first reason is that the price-point for these wines classifies them as a "Premium" wine club on our website (barely). This means the wines are being considered for appropriateness for serious connoisseurs and collectors. Unfortunately we think this wine club is really designed for wine enthusiasts with a reasonable budget.

The second reason we haven't rated this wine club highly is that we're not super impressed with their selections or the company's track record on offering its best customers a better price. They'll give you a discount if you order a wine by the case, but they charge their wine club subscribers full retail. We frown on this... we expect wine stores to reward their loyal wine club customers, not treat them like average walk-in customers.

Unlike the other wine clubs from publishing companies (NY Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Sunset Magazine, etc.) this wine club is owned by its publishing company (Wine Enthusiast Magazine). That changes all of the rules and expectations for this wine club... in the consumer’s favor.
