The 9 Best Mother's Day Wine Club Gifts

Is wine a great gift for Mom?

Hell, yes! Assuming she likes wine, of course. Wine often feels like an indulgence (or an expensive necessity) and those are prime gift territories. Give her what she already loves or help her discover new favorites.

Don’t forget, Mother’s Day in 2023 is Sunday, May 14 and you should order by Wednesday, May 4 if you want the wine to arrive by Mother’s Day.

If you’re seeing this, you’ve waited too long to be sure the wine will arrive by Mother’s Day. You can still order now and then announce/present your gift differently, or even choose an online gift card instead of a prepaid subscription.

In case you weren’t planning to give a wine subscription gift, or maybe it’s outside your budget, I picked out a bunch of other wine gifts perfect for Mom.

Tips for Buying a Wine Club Gift for Mom

If you’re looking to say, “I love you, Mom!” with wine, I’ve got you covered. These wine subscriptions are all perfect for giving to Mom, whether’s it’s for Mother’s Day, her Birthday, or any other special occasion. Bonus: I’ve tried wine from all of the wine clubs on this list and my recommendations are based on first-hand experience.

Select a state. Don’t forget to select the state she lives in before you shop. Not all wine clubs can ship to all states and it would be a bummer to get all the way to checkout before you figure that out.

21+ Signature Required for Deliveries. Because the gift is alcohol, someone at least 21 years old will need to sign for the packages when they arrive. If Mom has a busy schedule she can redirect packages to a nearby FedEx or UPS Pick-up Location or you can send her gifts to work (if that is allowed). Learn more about local wine delivery peculiarities and workarounds.

Pick an attitude. Clubs on this list fall, generally, into these buckets: “traditional,” “fun,” and “better for you.” If your Mom likes a particular kind of wine, please shop my selection of Niche Wine Club Gifts. If your Mom is into primo wine, definitely check my Best High-End Wine Clubs list. If you’re not sure, drop me a note and I’ll help you choose.

Keep your budget in mind. Most two-bottle wine clubs will cost $150-180 for three months once you factor in deals, shipping costs, and sales tax.

Ongoing vs prepaid. Most wine gift subscriptions are prepaid — you choose how many shipments to send and then you pay for all of them up front. There are some really cool subscriptions out there that don’t offer “prepaid” gifts and therefore make giving them a hassle. I left them off this list of gifts, but you can always choose one of them anyway.

Personalized vs Curated. While a personalized wine club might be a great fit for your Mom, they start with an electronic gift card and your Mom then has to set everything up herself. Because I assume you want to make things easier for your Mom for a change, I left them off this list.

FYI: I find great wine deals so you don’t have to. To keep me on the hunt, I earn a commission when you buy wine based on my recommendations.

California Premier Club Gift

by The California Wine Club

Good satisfaction guarantee

Good wine club gift

#1 Best Gifts / #4 Best White / #4 Best California

California Premier Club

For 14 years the California Premier Club has been my #1 gift recommendation. In addition to featuring high-quality California wine, they are better than any other wine club at gift presentation, satisfaction guarantee, attention to detail, and customer service.

About the Wine

Wine enthusiasts, sommeliers, and wine critics pretty much agree on one thing — the most interesting wines are made in small batches at (usually) small wineries. This is why The California Wine Club only offers wine from these hidden gems. Learn more about their small, family wineries in California.

Giving a Gift?

All gifts, from 1-12 shipments, include a personalized note at no extra charge. Gifts are available monthly, every other month, or quarterly. Order by May 1 for guaranteed delivery.

Want to Upgrade? (crate and bubbly offers can’t be combined)

Wooden Crate. Give a gift of at least two months and use code CRATE to have the first shipment presented in a wooden crate.

Bonus Bubbly. Gift a gift of three months or longer and Mom will get a bonus bottle of sparkling wine in her first shipment.

Upgrade to Gift+ to give Mom a nice gift before the first shipment of wine arrives. Will ship 2 business days after you order via US Priority Mail. $19 additional.

Good to Know

A membership at The California Wine Club has a lot to offer in addition to great wine. Their "Love It" Guarantee will replace any bottle your Mom doesn’t love, Mom gets a personal wine consultant, and she’ll love the full-color magazine highlighting the wines in each shipment.

Good wine club gift

#5 Best White / #7 Best International / #8 Best Wine Clubs

International Premier Club

If your Mom loves more than just California wine, I recommend taking a good look at the wine clubs from the International Wine of the Month Club. Another of the old guard clubs who just get everything right when it comes to giving wine, I’m generally delighted by the quality and value offered by this under-the-radar wine subscription.

About the Wine

Where the first wine club on this is about California wine, this one has a global perspective. Sometimes California wines are included, but wines I recently tried include a Portuguese white blend, a South African Chenin Blanc, and a Cabernet Franc from Argentina. They really go out of their way to source wine most Americans will find unusual, but only from reliable producers respected for quality.

Giving a Gift?

All gifts, from 2-12 shipments, include a personalized note at no extra charge. Gifts are available monthly, every other month, or quarterly. Bottles in the first shipment come wrapped in reusable organza wine bags.

A unique feature of this wine club gift is the ability to pay as you go. You can plan to give a gift of 2+ months and only pay when the wine ships each month. They do not offer one-time gifts.

If you want it to start sometime other than "immediately," you can choose a month for shipments to begin. In case Mom is traveling in May and won’t be home to receive a wine shipment.

Last minute? You can customize a letter to print or email to your Mom so she has something to open on Mother’s Day.

Good to Know

The International Wine of the Month Club is one part of the Monthly Clubs line-up. In addition to four different wine clubs, they also offer a bunch of other high-end monthly clubs. These include: several subscriptions for beer, two cheese subscriptions, two chocolate subscriptions, a floral bouquet subscription, and two hand-rolled cigar subscriptions. You can Design Your Own Club by combining any and all of these into a custom subscription gift with their somewhat-easy-to-use online tool.

SomMailier Wine Club Gift

by SomMailier

Good wine club gift

#4 Best International / #5 Best Quarterly / #6 Best White

SomMailier Wine Club

SomMailier exclusively offers boutique French wine, imported just for this club. Founder and CEO Laurent Yung is a 5th generation member of the Yung wine family from Bordeaux. My own experience with the wines from SomMailier is that they are little treasures, distinct from widely available French wines I’ve tried.

About the Wine

I have had the pleasure of trying many wines from SomMailier (13), and even though I don’t always love red French wine, I found each interesting and distinctive. Some highlights include: his very popular Le Fleur des Pins white Bordeaux blend from Graves, a 2016 Cab-dominant red blend from Graves in Bordeaux, a Chardonnay from Arbois in Jura, a traditional red Rhône blend from Lirac, and a Corsican Vermentino.

Giving a Gift?

Choose three, six, or twelve bottle shipments delivered quarterly. Gifts include detailed cards about the wines and a fun gift box.

SomMailier comes with a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee and an exclusive wine tour of Laurent’s family’s wineries in Bordeaux if Mom is heading that way.

Good to Know

Laurent runs on a narrow profit margin, keeping the costs as low as he can, because he believes Americans need to taste these exceptional French wines from small producers that otherwise wouldn’t get their wines to the US.

California Gold Club Gift

by Gold Medal Wine Club

Good wine club gift

#5 Best California

California Gold Club

Another wine club featuring California wine from small producers, Gold Medal has a slightly different attitude toward curation (more adventurous) and different tricks up its proverbial sleeve (not discount-oriented) than The California Wine Club. I’ve tried a dozen wines from this membership and it’s a great option for quality wine at an affordable price.

About the Wine

Gold Medal Wine Club looks for award-winning and point-scoring wines across California’s small wineries. The white wine selection is Chardonnay heavy, but includes Viognier and some interesting blends. The red wine selection showcases expected Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir, but also gets adventurous with Sangiovese, Zinfandel, Dolectto, Petite Sirah, and more.

Giving a Gift?

All gifts, from 1-12 shipments, include a personalized note at no extra charge. Gifts are available monthly, every other month, or quarterly. Bottles in the first shipment come wrapped in reusable organza wine bags.

An exclusive deal just for my readers, you can seriously upgrade your gift for free when you give a gift of at least 3-months using this link. Mom will get a bonus bottle of wine ($20+ value), a free artist-designed gift box ($7.99 value), and a free customized gift card.

Last minute? You can customize a letter to print or email to your Mom so she has something to open on Mother’s Day.

Good to Know

Gold Medal curates wine clubs differently than The California Wine Club. The latter prefers wines that are crowd pleasers, which means most of their selections are balanced and showcase high-quality fruit. Gold Medal takes a different approach — they want every wine to be interesting and engaging, often eschewing "familiar" wine grapes and styles unless they are a exceptional examples (like Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir).

Gold Medal does not offer a stellar Satisfaction Guarantee. They will replace damaged or corked bottles, but they won’t replace something Mom didn’t like.

Plonk Wine Club Gift

Good wine club gift

#1 Best White / #2 Best Quarterly / #3 Best Gifts

Plonk Wine Club

For You Save $10 and get free shipping on your first wine shipment. Use code SUBSCRIBE10 at checkout.

Plonk Wine Club used to quietly be a natural wine club, and now they are more open about it. In addition to natural wine (this is a wine trend, not a government-sanctioned definition), the wines are nearly all organic or biodynamic (whether certified or not). As prices have been going up, founder Etty Klein has kept prices steady, which is a breath of fresh air.

About the Wine

There is a lot of hype around natural wine. For certain wine drinkers — maybe even you — the allure is simple: fun wine produced by good people in a way that only inflicts minimal harm on the planet. What I think gets lost in all the hype is that these wines are also (typically) more interesting than the average Cabernet Sauvignon or Chardonnay rolling of Napa, Bordeaux, and Burgundy. With Plonk, Mom will get to taste a huge variety of wines she has probably never heard of, which is a good thing.

Giving a Gift?

Etty has never been big on gift pomp and circumstance (there are gift notification options), so if Mom is low key and doesn’t need a big to-do, this wine club gift will fit her vibe just fine.

Good to Know

I always enjoy the Plonk wines I receive and my sister-in-law loves Plonk so much she couldn’t even wait until she gave birth before she restarted her membership (she waited to drink it).

Good wine club gift

#6 Best California / #9 Best White / #11 Best Quarterly

Organic Wine Club

For You Get 10% off the first three shipments when you join an Organic Wine Exchange club. Use code WC10X3 at checkout.

If your Mom goes out of her way to eat organic produce and meats, she should consider drinking organic wine, too. It’s hard to find at most regular stores, and even most online stores, so a trusted organic-only provider like Organic Wine Exchange is the preferred way to shop for organic wine.

Organic and biodynamic are terms that refer to farming practices and don’t have any scientifically-proven health benefits.

About the Wine

Organic Wine Exchange carries a range of affordable organic wines from around the world. Broad strokes categories include red, white, rosé, sparkling, and sweet wines (a small selection). The inventory reflects the parts of the world where organic wine is a priority — primarily Italy, Spain, France, and California (especially Mendocino). I tried a selection of six wines from Organic Wine Exchange and found them to better than I expected.

Giving a Gift?

You can give a prepaid wine club subscription of 3, 6, or 12 bottles and have it delivered monthly or quarterly. You can choose red wine, white wine, or a mix — or you can customize it to special region, just rosé and bubbles, whatever you like, in the Special Requests field. Shipping is free.

Insider tip: Upgrade to more bottles! 6-bottle memberships are discounted 15% and 12-bottle memberships are discounted 20% from the 3-bottle prices. These discounts are stackable with the 10% off coupon code WC10X3!

Good to Know

While every single wine at Organic Wine Exchange is indeed made with organic grapes, they also offer several additional subscription options — all of which can be customized to suit your Mom’s preferences — including biodynamic, no-sulfites added, and a vegan wine club.

Champagne Club

For You Get $25 each of your first two shipments when you join the Champagne Club. Click for This Deal.

When Wine Access started offering gift subscriptions I did a little dance. For quite a while, some of the best wine clubs on the market have been the ones from Wine Access, but they were not offered as gifts so you couldn’t share the love with your favorite winos (easily). Barrier removed, start giving — and start with this killer Champagne club.

About the Wine

I wax poetic in my review, but this Champagne club is designed to showcase the premium wine side of Champagne, not just the premium price tag it usually carries. A mix of grower Champagne (otherwise known as récolrant manipulant) and reserve level offerings (including Vintage bottlings) from interesting Champagne houses. I found my new favorite Champagne in my first shipment from this club.

Giving a Gift?

A quarterly club, you can send 1, 2, 4, or 8 shipments of killer Champagne to Mom and ensure she has a bottle every week for the next two years.

Good to Know

The reality of curating a wine club these days is that it is hard to pin down exactly what each future shipment is going to cost. Wine Access typically handles this by charging a variable fee for each wine shipment in their subscriptions. For gifts, because it is easier for you to pay everything up front, they offer gift recipients a store credit for any money you spent that didn’t end up paying for wine shipments. How refreshingly ethical of them!

Sunset Magazine is a legend in the western US. They have long set the bar for how to enjoy life, both at home and on vacation, in the magnificent natural beauty of California, Oregon, and Washington. They partnered with Wine Access to bring their vision of wine and food to their readers — and now you can give it as a gift!

About the Wine

I was especially impressed with the quality of wines in this incredibly affordable wine subscription. At just $20/bottle, shipping included, Mom can try the best of what California, Oregon, and Washington offer. My shipment included an impressive Courtney Benham Cabernet Sauvignon, a killer field blend from Three wine company (Matt Cline), a delectable Pinot Noir drinking way above its price tag, and a fascinating white blend from one of Washington’s best producers.

Giving a Gift?

A quarterly club, you can send 1, 2, 4, or 8 shipments of the Sunset selection to Mom to help her level up her at-home wine and food game without breaking your budget.

MYSA Natural Wine Club

Another category of "better for you" wine is "natural wine." There is no standard definition of natural wine, but most proponents agree that it starts with organic farming and includes minimal intervention during winemaking (no additives). Very popular among some groups (Brooklyn, NY and Silver Lake, Los Angeles residents come to mind), these wines are characteristically low alcohol, bright (acidic), and "gulpable" but because of the low intervention style, other interesting attributes crop up that some people love and some people hate.

About the Wine

MYSA thoughtfully curates a selection of "familiar" natural wines alongside lesser-known producers and styles. Their store is a great source of natural Orange wine (which means it has intentionally been exposed to oxygen, not that it’s made from oranges), too. You will find wines without capsules (extraneous plastic or foil which covers the cork), wine in ceramic bottles, and wine from important wine regions like the country of Georgia where wine likely originated.

Giving a Gift?

If your Mom is forever young at heart and wants to drink like the cool kids, this is the perfect wine subscription gift for her.

MYSA offers a configurable Natural Wine Club Gift subscription. You can choose a mix of everything in 3, 6-, or 12 bottles or you can specialize with an Orange Natural Wine club or a Red Natural Wine club.

All clubs can be given as gifts from 1-12 months, and all are delivered monthly.

Good to Know

Holly Berrigan, the founder at MYSA, is on a mission to educate consumers about natural wine and to make it more approachable. One way she does this is using her "classic to funky" gauge, and another is with her extensive natural wine and food pairing guide.

Women in the Wine Club World

Since you’re here shopping for Mother’s Day, let me take a moment to recognize the terrific woman-owned, woman-led wine clubs here at WineClubReviews.net. It’s worth a quick read, especially if it helps you find a wine club you are happy to join and support the sisterhood. Raise a glass to these hardworking women and their children this Mother’s Day!

The California Wine Club by Gerri-Lynn Becker

My #1 recommendation for wine club gifts is always The California Wine Club. With Gerri-Lynn Becker at the helm, this company continues to support small family wineries mostly in California, but also in Oregon, Washington, and overseas. A great deal of these wineries are also are women-led, so she is paying it forward. Read my reviews or shop The California Wine Club

Plonk Wine Club by Etty Klein

A staple in the quality wine club world, Plonk features (relatively) affordable and high-quality wines that are primarily organic or natural. Etty’s palate has long been recognized as superb (a Wine & Spirits Magazine 30 Under 30 and Wine Enthusiast 40 Under 40 Tastemaker), but to beef up her WSET credentials she’s now a Certified Sommelier. Etty’s a mom now, too, still kicking ass in online sales of expertly curated wine. Read my review or shop Plonk Wine Club

Organic Wine Exchange by Annie Arnold

Highlighted above in this list of great wine clubs for Mom is Organic Wine Exchange, founded by Annie Arnold, a mom herself. Annie started the Organic Wine Exchange in order to bring better, more environmentally-conscious, and healthier wines to more consumers. In addition to offering a wine club, Annie is a wine wholesaler helping restaurants in Southern California source organic wine for their clientele. Read my review or shop Organic Wine Exchange

Rimessa Roscioli Wine Club by Lindsay Gabbard

Now here’s an interesting story. Lindsay Gabbard, born and raised in Michigan, fell in love with wine while studying abroad. Somewhere between Level 1 and Level 2 of the Court of Master Sommeliers, she realized that it wasn’t the way she wanted to learn about wine. After traveling around a bit, a sommelier at a wine bar suggested she check out the wine tastings at Rimessa Roscioli. She discovered a different way of looking at wine that changed her whole perspective — and she met a geat love, Alessandro. And now she runs one of the most interesting wine clubs I’ve ever reviewed. It features only small-production, special Italian wine (they are based in Roma) that would not normally get imported into the US. Read my review or shop Roscioli Wine Clubs

MYSA Natural Wine Store & Club by Holly Berrigan

A pair of natural wine lovers (Holly co-founded MYSA with Nic Jansson) teamed up to source, sell, and write about their favorite natural wines from all over the world. Holly, the sommelier side of the business, works tirelessly to put together great video content to support her curated wine club. Read my review or shop MYSA Wine Club Gifts

Wildcrafted Wines by Laura Madonna

Wine-loving couple Laura Madonna and Terry Pilch spent years bopping around Napa & Sonoma wine country, making friends and building connections before they decided to start Wildcrafted Wines (it as called Travelfood in those days). Working with all-start women winemakers like Celia Welch, Jacqueline Yoakum, and and Rebekah Wineburg means you get a twofer for lifting women in the wine world when you join one of their wine clubs. Read my review or shop Wildcrafted Wine Clubs

Pour Me Wines by Genna Tatom

A registered nurse and mom burned out by the lack of work-life balance which comes with that field decided to turn her passion into a wine business. This wine club is brand new, but I rather enjoyed the discoveries in my first shipment (three red wines and three sparkling wines). One thing I’m especially impressed with is that this industry outsider has managed to source such interesting wines. Shop Pour Me Wines

BOXT by Sarah Puil

Recently featured in the New York Times as a start-up heavily impacted by the Silicon Valley Bank shutdown, Sarah Puil is also one of few female founders. Her mission is to get good quality wine down to an affordable price, package it in the most environmentally friendly way, and, give customers the choice of how much to drink in one sitting.
