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.

Limited Time Offer
Exclusive Deal! Get a bonus bottle of Reserve Meritage, a free artist-designed gift box, free gift bags, and a free printed gift notice on all gifts of 3 months or longer! Get this exclusive bonus!

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!

Exclusive Deal! customers save 10% on all wine subscription gifts. Use coupon code BESTWINE.

Overview: Rosé is heavily hyped in the Spring (when the pink stuff hits the bottles) and in the Summer (because who doesn't love sipping on Rosé when it's hot out), but did you know Rosé goes great with all of your lighter meals the rest of the year, too? Dress up a salad, some poultry, or fish with a pink rosé. This club ships two bottles every other month.

What We Love: Rosé is a go-to wine around here because it's so versatile with food and light enough to sip on before dinner, too. As this is the only 100% rosé wine club we know of, we love that they know how awesome rosé is, too!

Could Be Better: We'd love to see this club delivered monthly and in larger quantities... two bottle just doesn't seem like enough! It is the perfect amount for a wine club gift, though...

Overview: Sometimes you want bubbly, sometimes you want rosé, and with this club you can get both. There aren't many sparkling wine clubs and this is the only wine club we know of that promises rosé in every shipment.

What We Love: A very female-focused brand. The wine industry is dominated by men and men predominantly start companies... this is a business that from the ground up is thinking about how women want to interact with their wine clubs. Which is great, because women represent 70% of buyers in the U.S.

Could Be Better: As wine clubs go, the options are pretty limited. They only offer monthly shipments and 2-bottle packages.

Overview: Wine tasting is a most beloved pastime, particularly among wine enthusiasts, and casual wine drinkers, too. With good reason! Why drink only one kind of wine when you can sample three different kinds? This wine club brings the wine tasting flight experience to your home at an affordable monthly price — and the wines are interesting!

What We Love: The wines have been excellent and unusual. The International selection is really discovery-oriented and we really dig the packaging — especially those impressive glass vials.

Could Be Better: They've already done the two things we wished for most — give you a discount when you order two boxes a month and offer full-size bottles of your favorite wines in their wine shop (you must be a logged-in customer to access this feature).

Limited Time Offer
Introductory Offer Your first six-bottle case is just $49.98 or your first 12-bottle case is just $89.88. Shipping is included.

Overview: A six or 12-bottle wine subscription geared toward occasional drinkers who don't want to spend a lot on their wine. An International selection with a good variety of wines and wine regions.

What We Love: There isn't anything Martha Stewart does that isn't beautiful, and the branding and experience of this wine subscription program are no exception to that rule.

Could Be Better: While we really enjoyed the white wines we received, the reds left much to be desired.

Buying for Yourself? Free in your first shipment: 2 Bonus Wines and a $25 Wine Credit to use on any future order. Use promo code EXTRAWINE. Until Jun 30.

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!

Exclusive Deal! customers save 10% on all wine subscription gifts. Use coupon code BESTWINE.

Overview: From the original Wine of the Month Club (really, they're the first!) you get wine delivered every month at surprisingly low prices. The proprietor drives a hard bargain and passes those deals onto his customers. The Limited Series is their premium-level wine club and it's a nice choice when you're looking for "better" wines but still pinching your pennies. It also makes a really nice gift.

What We Love: There are people who have been members of this wine club for over 20 years! The average wine club's membership length is 4 months.

Could Be Better: No recommendations for improvement here.

by Wine Down Box

Overview: Sometimes you just want a bottle of wine, some cheese and salami, and some crackers to tie all together and wind down a long work week. Enter the Wine Down Box (you see what they did there?) and add a little classy fun to your Friday nights — or someone else's as this makes a great gift!

What We Love: The wines have been excellent, and the pairings with the cheeses have been spot on. For how much hype there is around wine-and-cheese pairings in general, it's actually not that easy to pull off. And of course, we're suckers for salami.

Could Be Better: We're actually not fans of the crackers that come with this box. They're difficult to put a piece of salami and/or cheese on top of, so they're relegated to nibbling between bites of the other stuff. This is NOT a reason to avoid this otherwise awesome wine and cheese club.

Limited Time Offer
Save 33% Get $15 off your first shipment.

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.
