Find Wine of the Month Clubs by Convenience

When comparing wine club subscriptions, Convenience is something you should look closely at


We operate under the assumption that all wine clubs are more convenient than driving miles to the store to pick out wine and lug it around. But there are definitely features some wine clubs offer that make their clubs more convenient than others. A top score in convenience means timely email notifications of shipping and billing, and online account management for vacation holds or cancellation.

Please note: if you join or give a wine club after clicking our links we might earn a commission.

Mixed Wine Club

All-Around Rating:

For You & For Gifts Save $10 on any order and get a free double-hinged corkscrew with your first shipment. Use code NEWMEMBER at checkout.

Convenience Rating:

Overview: 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.

What We Love: 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).

Could Be Better: When it comes to Plonk we have little to ask for in the improvement department. Because the wines are so great, we'd really like to see a more giftworthy version of the subscription which includes gift wrap and maybe even store credits so gift recipients can order more of their favorites.

Wine by the Glass Club

by VineBox
All-Around Rating:

Convenience Rating:

Overview: One-of-a-kind wine tasting club which delivers wine by the glass instead of in full size bottles so you can taste your way through sommelier-selected grown up juice. Reorder full bottles or more glasses of what you love. Now delivered quarterly.

What We Love: We especially love that sommelier Tyler Kennedy picks the wine — and it shows. We’ve been super impressed with the quality of each wine we’ve received. The unusual selection genuinely seems like a somm picked the wines. We also love the pricing which rewards bigger customers.

Could Be Better: Given the care taken to select interesting wine, we want more more information about the wine regions, the wineries, and the winemakers in the tasting notes.

Firstleaf Club

All-Around Rating:

For You Join today and try three wines selected based on your preferences for just $15 + $4.95 shipping. Click for This Deal.

Convenience Rating:

Overview: An affordably-priced personalized wine club that learns what you like as you receive, drink, and rate six bottle shipments. International, domestic, and award-winning wine from a thoroughly modern wine subscription box service.

What We Love: Compared with other wine subscriptions in this price category, we think Firstleaf has nailed ease-of-use, presentation, and offers reasonably-interesting wines. We also really like that they identify the body, acidity, sweetness, fruitiness, and tannin level for each wine they sell. You can review the wine before it is shipped and swap out wines that have characteristics you don't like.

Could Be Better: We think their marketing materials make them seem better than they really are, but with a 100% satisfaction guarantee and inexpensive introductory shipment, you can decide for yourself.

Wine Awesomeness

All-Around Rating:

For You Join today and save $25 on your first shipment of a 6-bottle membership. Click for This Deal.


For You Join today and save $10 on your first shipment of a 3-bottle membership. Click for This Deal.

Convenience Rating:

Overview: Among other "journey around the wine world" clubs Wine Awesomness stands out for exceptional educational materials. This is a great wine club for you if you're not sure yet if you're a "wine club" person or if you're looking to give a gift to a young wine-lover who's just starting to discover the world of wine.

What We Love: The level of sophistication in both design and writing of their monthly magazine and how the wine isn't expensive but is a very good value.

Could Be Better: So many people love to give wine subscriptions as gifts, and we think a gift packaging option and customizable gift notifications would add to the subscription gift option.

TastingRoom.com

All-Around Rating:

For You Join today and get a $40 tasting kit for just $6.95. Click for This Deal.

Convenience Rating:

Overview: A 12-bottle personalized wine club that begins to get to know your preferences with a six mini-bottle wine tasting kit delivered for $6.95. By signing up for the tasting kit experience you are automatically enrolling in regular wine club shipments, 12 bottles delivered quarterly for $149 plus $19.99 shipping.

What We Love: Their best feature is total control of your account online without having to contact customer service — change the contents of your shipment, change your shipment size, have your next shipment sent exactly when you want it, or even cancel online.

Could Be Better: The wines offered in the $6.95 tasting kit have extreme profiles (likely the best way to identify the boundaries of your palate) but the experience is fun anyway. It's important to note: rating the wine triggers the first full-price case to be shipped.

Signature Series

All-Around Rating:

Exclusive Deal For You Save 50% on your first shipment. Until Dec 31. Use code WCRHALF at checkout.


For Gifts Give a wine club gift of 3 months or longer and get free shipping — Save up to $168. Until Jan 2. Click for This Deal.


For You & For Gifts Save 10% on The Signature Series for yourself or as a gift. Until Dec 16. Use code QUALITY10 at checkout.

Convenience Rating:

Overview: This wine club, one of our favorites, features hard-to-access, ultra-premium, mostly red wine, from California's boutique family wineries. An important thing to note: not all bottles shipped in this club have the same general cost. Instead of getting two $75 bottles, you might get a $140 and a $35 bottle. No matter how much it retails for, you'll always get interesting wine from the Siganture Series.

What We Love: We love the wine we've received from this club, in fact it's on our Editor's Picks list because we'd sign up for this one. Also, they reward volume purchasing! If you can afford it, by upgrading to the 4-bottle per shipment program you can save up to $11 per bottle. Get a preview of the killer selection in their online wine store.

Could Be Better: As a general rule, we think The California Wine Club has little they can do to improve. Whether you're buying for yourself or as a gift, they've really done a lot to create a wine club worth joining.

For You & For Gifts Save 10% on The Aged Cabernet Series for yourself or as a gift. Until Dec 16. Use code QUALITY10 at checkout.

Convenience Rating:

Overview: This wine club is perfect for Cabernet lovers who lack the patience to cellar red wines and those who want to explore aged wine with a Satisfaction Guarantee. Each shipment contains two bottles of perfectly-cellared, mostly Napa, California Cabernet Sauvignon that's ready to drink now.

What We Love: We like that they bring you a variety of aged Cabernet Sauvignon, at different levels of quality from exceptional to rarified. Each shipment explores the different wine regions of Napa Valley and Sonoma County, like Oakville, Alexander Valley, Atlas Peak, Howell Mountain, and Spring Mountain District. We also love that you can buy Cabernet online in their store.

Could Be Better: As a general rule, we think The California Wine Club has little they can do to improve. Whether you're buying for yourself or as a gift, they've really done a lot to create a wine club worth joining.

Case Club

All-Around Rating:

For Gifts Save 10% on The Case Club. Until Dec 16. Use code QUALITY10 at checkout.

Convenience Rating:

Overview: Among all of the case clubs (12 bottles, typically shipped quarterly), this California wine club offering selections from boutique wineries is one of the two best deals. The other club delivers 90+ point wine from around the world.

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!
