New to Wine Clubs Rating:

Overview: For the wine connoisseur with a penchant for California wines, this wine of the month club is a sure thing. One of our most favorite wine clubs, the boutique gems delivered by The California Wine Club are ready to drink or can be cellared, but the real reason to join is the benefit of being a member of The California Wine Club — best-in-class customer service with your own personal wine consultant, a top-tier satisfaction guarantee, and discounts on reorders of your favorites (if they're still available).

What We Love: They reward volume purchasing! If you can afford it, by upgrading to the 4-bottle per shipment program you can save up to $13 per bottle.

Could Be Better: We have very little we feel The California Wine Club could do to improve. The prices sometimes feel a bit high, but when you factor in all of the benefits of membership, including a satisfaction guarantee, we still feel like you get what you pay for here.

by The California Wine Club

New to Wine Clubs Rating:

Overview: Among all of the case clubs (12 bottles, typically shipped quarterly), this one of the two best deals. The other club delivers wine from around the world, but this club sends boutique California wine and is marked way down because you're buying in volume.

What We Love: We asked The California Wine Club for a case club deal and they made one! And now you get to save a TON of money on their already affordable Premier Series wines.

Could Be Better: Normally we'd ask for a deal for this club, but it's already priced as low as it can go, so it's perfect as is!

Exclusive Deal!
Get $25 in credits toward your first shipment when you use our links to join Winc.

New to Wine Clubs Rating:

Overview: Winc (formerly known as Club W) set out to change the wine industry and for their customers, they've achieved it. By delivering unprecedented value at $13 a bottle and personalized selections geared for every palate, Winc is a standout wine of the month club. If you're ready for more sophisticated wines, you can upgrade to Winc Select. Either way, you can save even more money by participating in their myriad rewards programs.

What We Love: 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!

Could Be Better: Winc works so hard to make their service great that it's hard for us to think of something they should do to make it even better.

WineClubReviews Exclusive! Save 50% on your first shipment when enrolling in an ongoing subscription of the Aged Cabernet Series. Use coupon code WCRHALF. No expiration.


Buying for yourself or as a gift? Get two extra bottles and a $25 wine credit for their wine store with promo code EXTRAWINE. Until Dec 31.

New to Wine Clubs Rating:

Overview: This wine club is perfect for Cabernet lovers who lack the patience to cellar wines, or for those who have come to love Cabernet Sauvignon more recently. Each shipment contains perfectly-cellared boutique California Cabernet Sauvignon that's ready to drink now.

What We Love: We like that they bring you a variety of aged Cabernets, at different levels of quality from exceptional to rarified. While your monthly shipment price will vary, so will the different terroirs and winemaker expression of the king of all varietals.

Could Be Better: We have very little we feel The California Wine Club could do to improve. The prices sometimes feel a bit high, but when you factor in all of the benefits of membership, including a satisfaction guarantee, we still feel like you get what you pay for here.

New to Wine Clubs Rating:

Overview: If you or some you know loves California wine, this is the perfect wine club to join (or send as a gift). Each month you'll get two bottles of hand-picked wines from some of California's best boutique wineries (small production wineries that usually don't have widespread distribution). You'll discover the hidden corners of California's wine country and enjoy gems from prominent regions, too.

What We Love: When it comes to places to find deals on wine, we often look to The California Wine Club. Not only do they start with great prices on their Premier Series wines, but they also have fantastic discounts after the shipments have gone out.

Could Be Better: The California Wine Club now regularly offers introductory discounts, and that makes this wine club a better value while still delivering fantastic quality. It's now as perfect as it's going to be!

Limited Time Offer
Save $10 on any order with promo code NEWMEMBER. Bonus: Get a FREE double-hinged corkscrew with your first shipment. If you've never used one, you'll see why it's the best way to open a bottle of wine!

New to Wine Clubs Rating:

Overview: Tired of ho-hum wines but not sure where to start? Try this wine club! The Plonk wine clubs have always been among our favorites because of the proprietor's preference for quirky but delectable wines made from grapes and regions you've never heard of (and some you have). Whether you choose two, four, or twelve bottles you'll be glad you picked Plonk. Also, if you're thinking of going red-only or white-only, you'll actually get (two or four) different selections.

What We Love: This is a truly unique wine club with a bonus bottle on sign-up and a focus on Natural Wine (organic/biodynamic) that travels the world hunting for your next wine deal.

Could Be Better: Nothing. We're pretty stoked about these guys.

by Wired For Wine ®

New to Wine Clubs Rating:

Overview: Among all of the case clubs (12 bottles, typically shipped quarterly), this 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.

What We Love: It's so easy to get into a wine rut and stick with what you know... but then you're bored. 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.

Could Be Better: Normally we'd ask for a deal for this club, but it's already priced as low as it can go, so it's nearly perfect as is! We'd love to see a little bit of customization available and also monthly clubs for people who drink more than a bottle a week.

New to Wine Clubs Rating:

Overview: This wine club is a great for people who love California wine but are ready to try wines from other regions, too. Using the same methods and ideas of wine selection as they've used for years in California, The California Wine Club has translated their vision to an International stage.
