Which Kind of Wine Drinker Are You?

Find the Perfect Wine Club for YOU

While we can objectively rank wine clubs by their features, different types of wine drinkers might prioritize different features, so one size does not fit all. By considering who might be looking for a wine club, and why, we can steer you toward a wine club that will meet your specific needs and wants, not everyone else's.

Below you'll find our Top 3 wine clubs by each type of wine club buyer. If you've already selected which state you're shipping the wine club to, your results reflect wine clubs that can ship to your location.

FYI: We find great wine deals so you don’t have to. To keep us on the hunt, we earn a commission when you buy wine based on our recommendations.

Generalists

A good wine club tries to be as many things to as many people as it can. The All-Around score highlights wine clubs that go out of their way to deliver across all wine club features. The most features are included in this rating profile because we are looking for wine clubs that are best in as many classes as possible.

It's very difficult to get a five-star rating from us in the All-Around category — only 6 wine clubs have managed to do this and 3 of them are offered by the same company. We strongly recommend these 6 wine clubs.

To help smooth the switch, our ratings for newcomers focus on the strength of a wine club's satisfaction guarantee, how many convenience-oriented features they offer, and the overall quality of the wine that gets delivered.

Connoisseurs

The connoisseur. Ah, if our wine budgets permitted, this is who we'd be. There are a limited number of wine clubs appropriate for a wine drinker of your experience and palate. Fortunately, there are still some clubs that will knock your socks off.

Because you are serious about wine, we heavily tilt the ratings toward wine quality. We still think a satisfaction guarantee is a must-have feature for connoisseurs (it is the primary value of a wine club) and we believe tasting notes matter, too, because you didn't become a connoisseur by skipping the geeky bits.

You might also like to check out our Wine Clubs for Collectors page — the wine clubs we'd join if we had to pay for them.

This quarterly wine club features true luxury wines rated 93+ and finds California wines so exclusive that the club is limited to 500 members. You get collector-level access without the hassle of doing your own research.

Platinum Series Wine Club

Platinum Series Wine Club

If you're ready to upgrade to a higher quality wine from California and explore what all of the artisanal buzz is about, this should be your first stop. These mostly red wines from the best small wineries typically retail in the $35-90 range but you pay a much lower price to have them delivered. Joining for yourself means variable shipment prices, but if you buy as a pre-paid gift subscription you'll know your price in advance. Hint: Buy yourself a pre-paid gift subscription instead of joining as an ongoing member.
