Join a Beginners wine of the month club for less than $40 per delivery
This is a curated list of Beginners wine of the month clubs which ship for less than $40. Our ratings system looks at quality-to-price ratio, shipping costs, uniqueness, and custom features. Wherever possible, prices include shipping costs, but rarely include sales tax. Be sure to select the state you're shipping to, as not all wine clubs can ship to all states.
Overview: From the wine sales partner for Wine Enthusiast magazine, this wine of the month club is perfect for a wine-lover on a budget who wants a no-hassle way to get new wines shipped to them. The wines are of medium 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?
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 The ones listed are a little out of date.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: 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.
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!
Overview: It's easy to be a Pinotphile, but there are so many interesting alternatives that there's no reason to limit yourself. This club features one Pinot Noir and one similarly-styled red wine each month. Expect high quality selections that surprise you, and enjoy the discovery adventure of a doppelganger.
What We Love: Plonk took their winning model for finding and delivering interesting wines at exceptional value, and then figured out how to make it even better with a mix of familiar and adventure in every box.
Could Be Better: We'd love to see a buy-more-save-more option and even a 4-bottle version for customers who just can't get enough of their killer curation.

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!
Overview: California is home to some of the world's best wine regions and wineries, many of which are boutique wineries (wine jargon for small wineries with little-to-no distribution). This wine of the month club is a great way to get introduced to what California wine has to offer at reasonable prices. This wine club makes an excellent gift.
What We Love: Consistency. We've been receiving their shipments for months and we've never had a wine we didn't like. You can't really ask for more than that from a wine club.
Could Be Better: We don't have any suggestions for what to improve within the Gold Series wine club. Yay!
