"New to Wine Clubs" Rating:

Overview: This is a company who sells many "of the month clubs" and their business model is to delivery fairly-priced gift of the month clubs while maintaining their excellent reputation for quality and customer service. That said, their wine of the month club isn't exactly pedigree-focused and most of the selections are from large-scale productions. It makes a great gift, especially for someone who loves wine but doesn't spend much on it.

What We Love: Very flexible in wine club options like wine color, shipping and billing frequency, and gift-giving.

Could Be Better: We'd like to see a slightly better quality of wine for this price-point.

"New to Wine Clubs" Rating:

Overview: From the wine sales partner for Wine Enthusiast magazine, this wine of the month club is perfect for Italian wine lovers. There aren't many Italian wine clubs out there, and the selection from WineExpress is solid. For a value-oriented approach to learning about Italian wine, this is a good bet.

What We Love: WineExpress is the retail arm of Wine Enthusiast Magazine. Who better to select the best wines for a wine of the month club than a company that rates wine?

Could Be Better: We'd like to see some updated "Previous Selections" on each of the wine clubs. The ones listed are a little out of date.

Overview: From the wine sales partner for Wine Enthusiast magazine, this wine of the month club is perfect for the occasional wine drinker who's looking to step up from mid-range wines. We don't agree with the label "Connoisseur" for these $20ish wines, but like their other clubs, the wines of good quality and are priced fairly, but not generously.

What We Love: WineExpress is the retail arm of Wine Enthusiast Magazine. Who better to select the best wines for a wine of the month club than a company that rates wine?

"New to Wine Clubs" Rating:

Overview: From the wine sales partner for Wine Enthusiast magazine, this wine of the month club is perfect for a California wine-lover on a budget who wants a no-hassle way to get new wines shipped to them. These California wines are of medium quality and are priced fairly, but not generously.

What We Love: It's a California wine club focusing on well-reviewed wines and wineries. What's not to love? We also love their flexible billing options.

Could Be Better: As with other WineExpress wine clubs, we'd really like to see them drop the prices to reflect the customer loyalty inherent in a wine club subscription.

"New to Wine Clubs" Rating:

Overview: From the wine sales partner for Wine Enthusiast magazine, this is WineExpress' value-oriented wine of the month club focusing on just white wines. Like their other wine clubs, we feel they delivery good-quality wines at fair prices, but the selections we've received are available at grocery stores, so joining this wine club is more about convenience than anything else.

What We Love: WineExpress is the retail arm of Wine Enthusiast Magazine. Who better to select the best wines for a wine of the month club than a company that rates wine?

Could Be Better: We'd like to see some updated "Previous Selections" on each of the wine clubs. The ones listed are a little out of date.

"New to Wine Clubs" Rating:

Overview: While it's a misnomer to call this a Four Seasons wine club (because you actually get a fifth shipment just in time for the holidays, to bring to parties or to serve at your own), it's still a great value wine club. Designed to compete with other big name quarterly case clubs, the Vinesse Four/Five Seasons club is also tailored to the season, so you get lighter wines in the summer and heavier wines to help get you through the long winter.

What We Love: It's better to ship more wine less often, so we like the way they've compressed a normal 2-bottle monthly club

Could Be Better: Great value and a great track record are nothing to sneeze at, but we???d like to see a better understanding of where the wines will come from.

Limited Time Offer
For joining the American Cellars Wine Club today, you'll receive a 6-piece insulated wine tote include with your third wine club shipment as a token of our appreciation—a $37.95 value.

"New to Wine Clubs" Rating:

Overview: It's been a while since we've received a shipment of this wine club, and at last check we were thoroughly disappointed. We've received several other shipments from Vinesse lately and were pleasantly surprised with how far the quality has come since they brought in a new wine buyer. It might be time to give American Cellars Wine Club another try, but at this time we don't recommend it.

What We Love: You can decide exactly how much you wine you want to receive, unprecedented options on order size and frequency.

Could Be Better: We're all for cheap wine, but we really would prefer our cheap wine to actually be cheap. These prices are too steep for cheap.

"New to Wine Clubs" Rating:

Overview: Love California wine but you're tired of Cabernet and Chardonnay? Try this wine of the month club which helps you explore wine made with lesser-known grape varieties like Zinfandel, Syrah, and Roussanne. This wine club focuses on California's Central Coast, especially Paso Robles.

What We Love: It's like going on a wine-tasting trip to Paso Robles without all the travel expenses! If you love Paso, you'll love this wine club.

Could Be Better: We'd like them to publish what wines they've shipped to customers in the past and we'd like it if the website were more user-friendly.

"New to Wine Clubs" Rating:

Overview: This red wine of the month club focuses on California's Central Coast, especially Paso Robles. These regions are known for fruit-forward and high-alcohol red wines, also known as Big Reds, and are the perfect accompaniment for steaks, pizzas, and burgers. Explore one of California's fastest-growing wine regions with this club.

What We Love: These guys actually live and taste on the Central Coast of California, so they know what's good and they have great relationships to get great deals.

Could Be Better: They're overhyping themselves a bit. Not every wine they're offering is super premium, unless you consider that 'premium' means 'over $15' in the wine industry.

"New to Wine Clubs" Rating:

Overview: One of the few wine of the month clubs which focuses on Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine clubs from Gourmet Food Clubs are California Central Coast centric, especially Paso Robles. The ideal customer for this wine club is someone prefers Cabernet but hasn't developed a strong preference for where it comes from.

What We Love: Like custom-fit sports-equipment, a Cabernet Sauvignon wine club just feels right. It's always worthwhile to explore such an amazing grape through unique regional expressions of its potential.

Could Be Better: We'd like them to publish what wines they've shipped to customers in the past and we'd like it if the website were more user-friendly.
