What about all of the other wine clubs?
This page contains my current list of the best wine clubs (according to my experience). My reviews are sometimes snapshots, and sometimes I track the quality of a company closely for years. I also change my mind about monthly wine clubs when their quality or value go up or down.
If you’re wondering about a specific brand that isn’t on this list, there’s a reason it’s not here, even if it’s great. There are many "popular" wine clubs which I don’t think are good enough to be on this list (or sometimes even to provide a full review for) and some I just haven’t reviewed (I do not review every wine of the month club). Browse all of the wine clubs I’ve reviewed.
Specialty Wine Clubs Worth Exploring
Not every wine club that I think is great belongs on this list. Usually these are specialty clubs that I think are excellent, but not suitable for everyone. Here are several excellent wine clubs that don’t make this list but are absolutely worth joining.
Roscioli Italian Wine Club
Roscioli’s wine clubs, which ship wine from Rome directly to your door, are the best way to discover Italian wine short of going to Italy yourself. This club is expensive but worth every penny.
Two of their wine clubs feature Italian wine from small producers. These wines are rarely exported from Italy, and sometimes they’re not even known within Italy. Level 1 is "ready to drink" and Level 2 could drink now or lay down for a bit. Their Collectors and Legends wine clubs feature both French and Italian wines that are in high-demand. The Legends club ships pre-aged Grand Cru, Barolo, and more.
This is a truly unique wine club in the US market. Between access to a remarkable array of wines and wineries in Italy and the exception video content they produce for each wine they ship, you’ll feel like you’re on a wine tasting trip to Italy with every shipment.

MYSA Natural Wine Club
If you haven’t heard of natural wine, the idea is that it represents the truest expression of the grapes and the land they were grown in, with "nothing added, nothing taken away." These wines are typically organic, some are biodynamic, most use minimal amounts of sulfur as a preservative, and often have quirky labels to compliment their natural state.
When it comes to natural wine, I most highly recommend joining the MYSA wine club. They offer a variety of subscriptions to suit your preferences, they source all of the industry’s favorite natural wine selections and many obscure ones that excite proprietor Holly Berrigan.

Vinesse Sparkling Wine Club
Vinesse offers a variety of wine clubs, some of which I’m frankly not impressed with. But for years now (at least 10 of them) my favorite wine club from them is their Sparkling Wine Club. I get regular shipments and I never receive something I’ve seen on a grocery store shelf, or even a wine store shelf.
Each shipment includes an affordable sparkler from somewhere in the world, a high-quality sparkler, usually from France, and a true Champagne. Bubbles should not be reserved for special occasions and this wine club is the perfect antidote to boring wine.

Organic Wine Exchange
Every wine sold by Organic Wine Exchange (OWE) is certified organic or made with certified organically-grown grapes. Their online store has over 300 wines available and covers the gamut of wine color, grapes, styles, and regions. They also offer specialized wines like Dry Farmed, Low Alcohol, Gluten Free, GMO Free, Low Sugar, No Sulfites Added, and Vegan. Their wine clubs are an affordable selection of these wines.
OWE is a curated wine club (they pick your wines) but you have an unprecedented number of options for customization. Whether you have a favorite region or one you just want to get to know better, they have you covered. Their wine club shipments come from the store inventory, so if they sell it, you can customize it. Unlike other organic wine clubs, OWE isn’t pretentious and they don’t expect you to be a wine expert to give their clubs a try. We also love their dedication to fair prices and transparent wine selections.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do wine clubs work?
A wine club is a service that delivers vino on a regular schedule, often monthly or quarterly. These services — also known as wine of the month clubs and wine subscriptions — are either personalized to your tastes or send the same selection to all of their customers. You can cancel at any time.
How do we pick the best wine clubs?
To evaluate the hundreds of wine clubs available for delivery, we developed a rigorous ratings system. We compare wine quality, customer service, satisfaction guarantee, and other essentials like personalization, tasting notes, price introductory deals, and convenience.
What is the best wine club to join?
I don’t think this gets said enough... the best wine club is a personal decision and what is best for you may not be best for someone else. That said, beyond finding a wine of the month club with the kind of wine you like and the price you want to pay, the best wine clubs also offer great customer service and membership benefits.
