Our most highly-recommended wine subscription gift is the Premier Series from The California Wine Club. Featuring only small-production California wine, it is great for all wine lovers, especially California wine lovers.

One of the things to love about The California Wine Club is an obsessive focus on selecting high-quality wines that appeal to many palates. Fortunately this doesn’t just limit us to Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay — you’ll also find delightful Petite Sirah, Zinfandel, Red Blends, Sauvignon Blanc, and Rhone-style whites, too.

The Bold Reds club features International red wines showcasing, yep, bigger and bolder flavors, that are more tannic and fruit forward. These are not your typical easy-drinking wines but they're perfect for pizza, grill nights, and all forms of meat.

More than anything, we love surprise factor of these wines. Every time we open a box, we sort of grimace at the prospect of drinking a Rhone red or an Barolo (wines that we typically don't enjoy because of our own palate preferences), but we're always surprised at how the wines are enjoyable anyway, and usually much better than we were expecting.

Wine club gifting is an area that this company excels at. They give you the most options of any two-bottle wine club, from when you pay for each shipment, to all of the standard customizations, gift notice options, etc. The first shipment of all gifts includes organza-wrapped bottles for an extra touch.

4. Garagiste Wine Club Gift

Garagiste is a term which describes up-and-coming winemakers who toil away creating artisanal wines in their, well not usually, garages. If you're someone who wants to be up on the latest and greatest future stars of California winemaking, try the mostly red wine selection of Garagiste wines from the Gold Medal Wine Club.

We look forward to discovering new wineries from all over California. We know we're getting very good wine at below-retail prices and helping small family businesses grow.

With elegant gift packaging as an upgrade option, you can make any wine subscription gift really stand out. Send a personalized greeting card ahead or ship it to yourself to present on the big day. When the wine arrives, the first shipment's bottles are wrapped in organza and presented in a beautiful artist-designed gift box.

Good wine subscription gift

This wine subscription focuses on high-end, limited-production wines from small family wineries outside the US. It is perfect to give as a gift or to join yourself.

They only work with small family wineries, so nearly every wine they ship typically wouldn’t be distributed inside the US.

The International Series is the perfect wine gift splurge for a wine lover who likes to explore new wines. For an extra $18 you order a pre-wine gift package announcing the gift. Send it to yourself to present in person on the big day or send it directly to your wine lover so they know the wine is coming.

Whether you choose just the wine or you upgrade to include the regional gourmet treats with the Adventure Package, this quarterly wine club will take you on your own wine-drinking adventure around the world. Extensive regional and winery information goes out with each shipment, chock full of photos that help you feel like you've gone wine tasting in a far away land.

Stunning Pinot from Joseph Jewell, Dragonette Cellars, and Kessler-Haak to name a few.

We're big fans of Pinot Noir in general, and we love how Gold Medal sources award-winning selections from small producers we may not have heard of or haven't had access to for purchasing. A membership with the Gold Medal Wine Club Pinot Noir Series takes Pinot lovers on a trip to the West Coast for wine tasting without leaving home. Check out their Pinot selection.

With elegant gift packaging as an upgrade option, you can make any wine subscription gift really stand out. Send a personalized greeting card ahead or ship it to yourself to present on the big day.

Our Tips for Picking the Perfect Wine Club Subscription Gift

Select Their State. We have complex shipping laws regarding alcohol in the US. Our site helps you shop by picking the state your gift recipient lives in. The menu to select a state is up at the top of the list. The main list will then indicate which states you can ship the gift to.

Pick a Gift with a Nice Presentation. Sure, no wine lover will be unappreciative when they receive a box of wine as a gift — but they’ll be delighted if it arrives decked out for the occasion.

Give at Least Three Months. The idea of a subscription gift is that it keeps on giving. Three months is nice, six months is generous, and a year of wine says you really really care.
