Wine Clubs Rated 3-Stars and 3.5-Stars

Wine of the Month Clubs & Subscriptions Rated 3-Stars and 3.5-Stars

Sometimes wine clubs offer great wines but don't get all of the customer-options quite right. That doesn't mean they're not good wine clubs, it just means you can't customize to your heart's content. But you'll probably love the wine anyway!

3-star Wine Clubs

When you join a wine club after using our site, we may earn a commission. This way we don’t have to show you a bazillion ads. You’re welcome.

The premium-level wine club from Vinesse where over the years we've seen the quality-to-price ratio go from incredible to disappointing and everywhere in between. If you want a wine of the month club that delivers better quality wines that you can't easily find, but want the protection of a rock-solid satisfaction guarantee, this is a good choice.

We like that you can decide how much of this wine club you want in your household's wine mix. You can choose 2, 4, 6, 8, or 12 bottles per shipment, though the delivery choices of 5, 7, or 14 times a year are kind of odd. Like most wine clubs, we advocate for joining with the highest number of bottles at an appropropriate frequency to save on shipping costs — a big savings with Vinesse.

Rich Reds Wine Club

California produces some of the best wines in the world, with stunning wines to sip from up and down the extra large state, but this is not the wine club to buy them from. California Treasures ships wine at $15-17 a bottle, plus shipping, but this isn't a price-point where California wine excels. It's better in the mass-produced sub-$15 price range, and at $25+.

One of the best features of any of the Vinesse wine clubs is their tasting notes. They sometimes feel a little sparse, but you always get the basic wine information, some winemaker info, a food pairing suggestion, and most-importantly, cellaring instructions (not that we think these are cellarworthy selections).

California Treasures

We recently received several shipments from Vinesse, including the Cabernet Sauvignon club, and they've really stepped up their wine buying. If you're interested in more than just California Cabernet and you don't want to spend a ton of money on it, we really recommend this Cabernet wine club. Plus, you get Vinesse's rock solid satisfaction guarantee for every bottle, taking all of the risk out of joining a wine club.

We strongly support all niche wine clubs. The taste of wine is subjective and we think everyone should drink what they love. Given the high delivery fees on this Cabernet subscription from Vinesse, we recommending joining the 12-bottle wine club and have the shipments sent as often as is appropriate.

Connoisseur's Choice

by WineExpress (Wine Enthusiast)

From the wine sales partner for Wine Enthusiast magazine, this wine of the month club is a no-hassle way to try new wines from around the world. We don't agree with the name "Connoisseur's Choice" for $20-ish wines. The wine director at WineExpress, Josh Farrell, hand picks each wine for their subscriptions.

Italian Stallions

by WineExpress (Wine Enthusiast)

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 wine from Italy, this is a good bet.

Great Clubs Wine Club

by Clubs of America

This is a company who sells many "of the month clubs" but has developed and maintain an 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.

We haven't received a shipment of this wine club so we can't speak to the wine, but the pricing is exceptional for a wine of the month club gift and this makes an easy pick for a young wine drinker who's just starting out.

This wine club is designed as a gift subscription, and as such they have really covered the bases to make giving a wine club gift easy for you. They offer every option you can think of for a monthly club and the low monthly price which includes shipping is almost too good to believe.
