What is a case club? The most widely-accepted definition of a case of wine is 12 bottles. A wine by the case club delivers 12 bottles of wine at regular intervals, typically once per quarter.

Why join a case club? When buying wine online, the best prices — both on the wine and on the shipping — are typically offered when you buy a case at a time. We belive a 12-bottle case club offers the best value in wine subscriptions.

Why aren't all of the wine clubs on this page 12-bottle clubs delivered quarterly? A few wine subscriptions offer a tremendous amount of flexibility in their memberships, whether they also offer monthly and every other month deliveries. If the club comes with less-than-12-bottle options, we probably received a shipment with less than a case of wine for review.

Sussing out the best quarterly case wine club isn’t the easiest job in the world. There’s a lot of noise from the company that brought this type of wine club to the US market (Laithwaites) and there are many imitators trying to get in on the action. We’ve located the signal among the noise — the best case clubs — and recommend these quarterly wine clubs. We definitely emphasize quality and consistency in these selections, so stock your cellar and enjoy wine more often without breaking the bank.

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.

Naked Wines isn’t really a wine club the way you think of one, but it’s a personalized wine buying service that you pay into on a monthly subscription so… we treat it like one. It also happens to be the most interesting wine club we’ve come across in a while.

The list of things we love about Naked Wines is long, but here are some of our favorite bits: the wines we tried were excellent and priced exceptionally well; the winemakers interact with commenters on a regular basis; you can make this wine club anything you want it to be.

2. 90+ Wine Club

by Wired For Wine ®

Among all of the case clubs (12 bottles, typically shipped quarterly), this 90+ International wine club is among the best two deals. The other focuses only on California wine, but this one takes you on a journey around the world. Enjoy eclectic wines at the best prices you'll find.

It's so easy to get into a wine rut and stick with what you know. Wired For Wine ® helps you break out of that rut in a low-cost, satisfaction guaranteed way so you can find new wines to love. Also, when compared with similarly-priced case clubs, this one stands out for wine quality in a big way.

The Plonk wine club has always been among our favorites because of the proprietor's preference for quirky but delectable wines. Etty Lewensztain sources interesting wines made from grapes and regions you've never heard of (and some you have). Whether you choose four or twelve bottles you'll be glad you picked Plonk.

Lately we've come to think of Plonk as the "Somm club" that isn't run by a sommelier. With a focus on wines under $30 that will delight any curious wine drinker, we think the value is top notch. Also, unlike most wine clubs, if you're thinking of going red-only or white-only, you'll actually get four different selections (three of each if you upgrade to 12 bottles).

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

Wine Insiders, founded in 1982, generally offers a better quality of wine than their well-known competitors in their quarterly case (12 bottle) wine subscriptions. Coupled with convenience and an outstanding customer service record, we think this is a good choice for many wine drinkers.

Two things stand out about Wine Insiders — the wine is better than most of their direct competitors and they excel at making wine delivery convenient. These are important features that make them stand out in the crowded wine subscription space.

5. World of Wine

Each shipment of this wine club includes a selection of wine from a single wine region. Sometimes that region is defined narrowly, like Southern France, and sometimes it’s more broad, like South America.

This is a fun way to discover wine regions around the world in an affordable way. Vinesse’s wine tasting notes all include cellaring information, which we find lacking in most other subscriptions’ educational materials.

Winc set out to change the wine industry by finding new ways to get better value to wine drinkers who spend less than $15 a bottle — and they’re succeeding. By delivering a broad range of wine which appeals to every palate, Winc is a standout wine of the month club.

We love how they go above and beyond to reward loyal customers with substantial savings and invitations to a premium level program. No other wine club offers this level of loyalty rewards, or this much fun! Also, as time has passed under wine director Ryan Zotovich, the selection of premium wines has both grown in selection and quality.

When you give a Winc subscription, you are giving wine credits which can be redeemed by your favorite wine lover. They'll then set up their own account so Winc's personalization engine can get to work on learning what they love. Opt for a fancy gift announcement on the big day for a little extra dough.

7. Organic Wine Club

by Organic Wine Exchange

For You Get $20 off the first shipment when you join an Organic Wine Exchange club. Use code WELCOME20OFF at checkout.

Good wine subscription gift

The perfect wine club for organic wine drinkers, Organic Wine Exchange (OWE) offers so many personalization options that everyone can get the best organic wine club for their needs. Choose Organic, Biodynamic, Vegan, No Sulfites Added, or all of the above.

Proprietor Annie Arnold has gone out of her way to bring her love of organic wine to wine consumers in a convenient way with a great wine club. Annie is doing everything she can to make buying great organic wine easy.

When giving a gift, Organic wine clubs are hard to find. Most are set up as ongoing subscriptions, which is great if you're buying for yourself, but less great when you want to give someone the joy of organic wine. The OWE clubs make great gifts, but they're not big on gift presentation. A custom gift note in the first box is the extent of the pomp and circumstance. That's just right for a wine club focused on wines that are eco-friendly.
