Overview: When compared to other similar 2-bottle wine clubs, this one offers a great price for the quality of wines you can expect.
What We Love: 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?
Could Be Better: We'd like to see some updated "Previous Selections" on each of the wine clubs. The ones listed are a little out of date.
Overview: Well-priced introductory-style wine club geared for less-experienced wine drinkers looking to expand their wine knowledge in a relaxed way.
What We Love: Great breadth and depth of wine selections presented in this wine club. You'll go around the world in your living room.
Could Be Better: For this type of club, and at this price-point, we think this club is an excellent choice and doesn't have any serious shortcomings.
Overview: Club W is a new kind of wine club—get a personalized list of available selections each month and then choose your own wine. This makes for a great gift, too!
What We Love: We love the great selection of quirky wines all priced at $13 or $19, and are especially impressed with the whites and roses. We love that you can put as many wines in your box as you want, and that shipping is free on 6 or more bottles.
Could Be Better: The wine descriptions tend to purposely avoid helpful terms that experienced wine drinkers look for in selecting bottles (i.e., no references to "buttery" or "acidic").
Overview: The hippest wine club on the web focusing on high-value wines under $20 a bottle with exceptional extras.
What We Love: This is a truly unique wine club with a bonus bottle on sign-up and a focus on Natural Wine (organic/biodynamic) that travels the world hunting for your next wine deal.
Could Be Better: Nothing. We're pretty stoked about these guys.

Could Be Better: The recent addition of an introductory offer (a free month) made this wine club a better value while still delivering fantastic quality. It's now as perfect as it's going to be!
Overview: Italian wine lovers need to join an Italian wine club. There are 350 official Italian grape varietals and you will never discover them all if you don't have help. Find the best examples of Italian wine, and customize the club to suit your palate. You'll always pay less-than-retail prices and you can change your shipment options any time.
What We Love: No other wine club has ever, and probably will ever, deliver this level of customization. You want it? You got it. It's perfect for any oenophile.
Could Be Better: We'd love to see Invino extend the inClub value even further by offering a case club.
