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 California Wine Club offers a few different wine subscriptions. We enthusiastically recommend them all for gifts. Here are the two most popular.

The wine program at Gold Medal includes a diverse selection of award-winning California wine regions and grape varieties. We personally do a lot of wine tasting in California. Between the inventory in their online store and shipments we’ve received from them, we’re confident they’re buying the best wines for this price range.

Gold Medal Wine Club offers a few other wine subscriptions (in addition to the Gold Wine Club). We enthusiastically recommend them all for gifts. Here are the two most popular.

Gold Wine Club

Exclusive Deal For You Join today and save $25 on your first Winc box. Free shipping on orders of 4 or more bottles. Click for This Deal.

Well-suited to wine adventurers of all experience levels, Winc makes a terrific personalized wine gift. This affordable wine subscription gift lets the gift recipient choose whether to rely on Winc’s selections or to pick their own wine each month.

We find the wines at Winc to generally be of much better quality than comparably-priced wines from wine stores and other wine subscription gifts. They offer a broad spectrum of wine regions, grape varieties, blends, and styles, with a heavy focus on California. Around 40% of Winc’s wine selection is priced at $13 per bottle, and the balance is priced $14-46. The wine increases in price as the quality goes up.

Winc set out to change the way we buy wine in America, and they continue to set the bar for what a really good wine of the month club should be. Their members are their most important customers, but their wines are sold in brick-and-mortar stores, restaurants, hotels, and ballparks around the country.

Why Give This: Breadth of wine styles and regions, personalized experience, and convenient online account management. For the health-conscious, Winc offers organic, vegan, natural, and low alcohol wines, too.


Upgrade to a printed gift announcement (pictured). You can have it sent to yourself or directly to your recipient.

The printed notice costs $6 to send and arrives via FedEx Ground. Spend $20 to FedEx Overnight. Orders are shipped Monday through Friday. For same day processing your order must be submitted by 11:00 AM PT.


Waited Until the Last minute? It’s free to send a gift notice via email, but be warned, it is sent immediately when you buy the gift.

The International Wine of the Month Club has been sending the perfect wine of the month club gifts since 1994. Their selection of expertly-curated wine appeals to most wine drinkers.

Standing firmly behind every wine they’ve ever shipped, you’ll find their shipment history going back to 1999 on their website. The selections are typically more common grapes from the world’s better known wine regions. When it comes to International wine clubs, their selection is fairly unique as the emphasis is on value and approachability rather than obscurity or low prices.

International Wine of the Month Club also offers other wine clubs (in addition to the Premier Series). We enthusiastically recommend them all for gifts. Here are our two favorites.

The Bold Reds Series features big red wines from all over the world: big Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Zinfandels, and Red blends. Prices start at $76 per shipment. Give this or Learn more.

The Collectors Series features high-end wines from around the world. Prices start at $76 per shipment. Give this or Learn more.

Why Give This: Reliable quality, premium gift presentation, and good value. Order now and ship later. Wine bottles arrive in organza gift bags.


Design Your Own Club. International Wine of the Month Club also offers subscription gifts for beer, cheese, chocolate, flowers, and cigars. You can combine any of these other gift types with any level of wine subscription they offer. It is unusual to find a Wine & Cheese Club to give.

The Premier Series

VineBox is an amazing wine tasting gift, and thankfully they offer it as a wine subscription service. Each quarterly tasting box contains 9 “glasses” of wine (around 3 oz each) and is themed to make learning about wine fun. Gifts are announced via email. When they redeem the gift, they’ll select their wine preferences and then shipments will begin.

The wines are super interesting, mostly old-world selections (European wine regions). The wines are rebottled from full-size bottles using a specially developed nitrogen system which prevents the wine from coming in contact with oxygen during the process.

Each box is really suited to a one-person tasting, so if you’re buying for a couple and want them to share the experience, we recommend using their “Double It” option which also saves you 10%.

Why Give This: VineBox offers a unique wine gift experience with its by-the-glass program. Each box contains nine tastes of wine — perfect for the adventure-seeking wine lover.


The VineBox Experience. A unique way to taste wine at home. It’s perfect for anyone who loves wine flights or just likes to sip on a little wine each night. Past themes have included: Compare and Contrast, Vintages and Verticals, Organic Wines, and more.

Wine by the Glass Club

French wine subscriptions in the US are rare. Great French wine clubs offering good value are like unicorns, and SomMailier is one of them. If you’re wondering about their name, it’s a play on the words sommelier and mail, but pronounced like sommelier.

An eclectic but well-curated selection of wine from France’s many regions. It’s a great way to sample better-quality French wine. Some clubs offer inexpensive (bulk) French wine that don’t accurately represent the quality and style of France’s great wine regions — this isn’t one of them.

The founder is a part of the 5th generation of a Bordeaux wine-producing family. He selects and imports French wines that aren’t available anywhere else in the US. He ensures this by buying the wine from his brother’s distributor business located within France. His brother’s company was selected as an approved seller to the French Foreign Ministry, representing the official face of French wine to the whole world.

Why Give This: Excellent quality, premium gift presentation, and good value. The first shipment will be sent out 7-10 days after you order. Delivery times vary.


We enthusiastically recommend this wine subscription gift to anyone who loves French wine or wants to learn more about it.

The packaging is lovely and carefully assembled, making a great presentation. A personalized note is included in the first shipment.


Waited Until the Last minute? It’s free to send a gift notice via email, but be warned, it is sent immediately when you buy the gift.

French Wine Club

For You $89 for a case of 12 bottles of wine + 3 bonus bottles of a red Bordeaux + free shipping. Click for This Deal.

It’s unusual for a wine subscription focused on affordability to offer a solid gift program, but Wine Insiders knows how great a gift a quarterly case of wine can be. Your lucky gift recipient will always have a variety of respectable wine on hand — for weeknight meals and weekend get-togethers.

You can choose red wine, white wine, or a mix of both for your deliveries. The selection of wine is International with a blend of wines made in the US, Europe, South America, and Australia/New Zealand. Each shipment is well balanced among styles and regions. Members save 12-19% off Wine Insiders’ regular prices — a great deal.

Wine Insiders stands out by bringing convenience to the wine club experience. In addition to being able to fully manage your account online, they make it easier to manage your deliveries, too. FedEx offers a program where customers can automatically route packages to local stores for pickup if it’s convenient. Wine Insiders is the only wine club which integrates this option into your sign-up process, so you don’t need to manage each delivery separately.

Why Give This: A good quality, affordable wine subscription gift. It’s a wonderful way to introduce someone to the world of wine that exists beyond the grocery store and make sure they’re always well-stocked. Online details for shipments include: some basic information about the grapes and the wine regions, tasting notes, and basic food pairing suggestions.


Try the Martha Stewart Wine Club instead. The two clubs choose from the same pool of wines, but the Martha Stewart wines are then curated by Martha herself. Note: Martha’s wine clubs are delivered every six or eight weeks instead of every 12 weeks.


Waited Until the Last minute? No worries! Wine Insiders emails the gift recipient when you order, so you can give the gift on the big day.

10. Champagne Club Gift

by Henri's Reserve

We already go weak in the knees for a great champagne, but the shipment we received has us wishing the next shipment would get here sooner. A mouth-watering way to explore the region of Champagne, particularly from boutique grower houses that rarely export to the United States.

A delightful and decadent way to treat yourself (or pamper a lucky gift recipient), Henri's Reserve is a playful yet sophisticated true Champagne Club, featuring top-notch small producers.
