Quirky local wine shop delivering a high-powered selection of ultra-premium cult-status wines and hard-to-find gems.
A unique selection of mostly red wines with occasional champagnes to spice things up a bit.
Name-dropping doesn't impress, especially when Silver Oak and Opus One are the names being dropped. We'd like to see some cult wines in this list.
In a world filled with very few ultra-premium wine clubs, we're excited to see this one come along.
The WineGlobe's brick-and-mortar store is located in the San Francisco Bay Area (on the peninsula) and this is a particularly fine-wine centric community. Proximity to Napa and oodles of Silicon Valley dough have made Palo Alto, Menlo Park, and Atherton the epicenter of California wine consumption. The WineGlobe is accustomed to picky customers who expect only the finest. This means when it comes to premium wines, they know what they're doing and they choose carefully.
Yay for you!
That said, we've given this wine club a pretty low rating because their wine club shipment manager doesn't have any kind of formal wine education and they don't have an allocation for reorders. If we'd seen a list of their recent shipments we might up their ratings to reflect that the club is "worth the price."

Looking for the best?
WineGlobe is proud to present the Diamond Wine Club — A Wine Club featuring only the finest wines available.
What sort of fine wines, you ask? Well, we’re talking highly rated wines, highly allocated wines, rare wines, cult wines, big-time brands, and other gems of the wine world. These wines come from all over the world, and are sure to please the most intense wine lover. Many of these wines will also age extremely well, and are suitable for long-term cellaring. Of course, these wines will also be delicious the day they arrive at your door.
Every month, you will receive two great wines--Mostly red, with one or two bottles of Champagne thrown in a year. These wines will be considered among the finest in the world, and your monthly membership price will definitely be less than the retail price of the wines.
This club will provide you with the best of the best, without you having to find them yourself. Don’t waste your time scouring wine magazines for the highest rated wines, then, going on a wild goose chase to find a store that actually carries the wine. Just relax. We’ll find the highest rated wines, buy them just for you, then ship them express to your door. Before you know it, you will amass an impressive wine collection, and will have the opportunity to try some really excellent wines.
This is the most exclusive wine club in the world. No other wine club comes close to the wines we’re offering, as well as the caliber of service you’ll receive as a member. In addition to the wines you’ll receive, you’ll also have access to WineGlobe’s most exclusive products, pre-sells, and futures before anyone else.
Your membership also includes special handling, and complimentary express shipping to better protect your wines in transit.
Seriously, what will I receive? Our selection changes constantly, but you can be assured that the wines will be highly rated, rare, and expensive. We have shipped big names like Opus One, Silver Oak, and Dom Perignon, as well as smaller, but still excellent producers such as Turley, Caymus, and Fisher. Our aim is to bring the world’s most distinctive wines to your door. We think you’ll be very pleased with what we bring to you.
