WineExpress (Wine Enthusiast) Review

Connoisseur's Choice Wine Club Review

WINE CLUB OVERVIEW & DETAILS

All-Around Wine Club Rating: 3.575

Summary

From the wine sales partner for Wine Enthusiast magazine, this wine of the month club is perfect for the occasional wine drinker who's looking to step up from mid-range wines. We don't agree with the label "Connoisseur" for these $20ish wines, but like their other clubs, the wines of good quality and are priced fairly, but not generously.

What We Like

WineExpress is the retail arm of Wine Enthusiast Magazine. Who better to select the best wines for a wine of the month club than a company that rates wine?

Improvements

We'd like to see some updated "Previous Selections" on each of the wine clubs. The ones listed are a little out of date.

Go Directly to the Wine Club

When choosing a premium wine club, we recommend looking at the types of wines the wine club specializes in to help you choose. Some of the premium wine clubs represent a single step up from value wine clubs, and others are truly premium offerings for real collectors and connoisseurs. We think this club falls more into the category of upgraded value wine club than collector-oriented. But you could probably tell that by the price. You’ll definitely enjoy these wines, and you’re not paying premium prices for them so if you’re ready for the next level in wine drinking, give this one a whirl.

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.
