14 years of the best wine clubs
Skip to the List
Choosing a white wine club, or even the best white wine club, can be a daunting task. There are literally hundreds of white wine clubs, some feature all white wines, some just California or Sweet whites, some single-varietal and some sparkling, not to mention all of the different price-points offered.
The great news is, most wine clubs offer "white wine only" options for you lovers of more light-bodied, bright wines. We use the same assiduous selection criteria for picking the best white wine of the month clubs as we do for all of our top wine club lists — so you know if you're shopping this list, you'll enjoy your wine subscription.
Check this page for all of our single-varietal wine clubs.
FYI: I find great wine deals so you don’t have to. To keep me on the hunt, I earn a commission when you buy wine based on my recommendations.

The Plonk wine club has always been among our favorites because of the proprietor's preference for quirky but delectable wines. Etty Klein sources interesting wines made from grapes and regions you've never heard of (and some you have). Whether you choose four, six, or twelve bottle shipments you'll be glad you picked Plonk.
Lately I'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, I 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 or six different selections (2 of each if you upgrade to 12 bottles).
For You Join today and save $50 on your first box of wine personalized by you and picked by a sommelier. Use code PICK50 at checkout.
A personalized wine club where your wines are individually chosen for you by a sommelier who gets to know your preferences. Your selections are chosen from the largest inventory of online wine available in the United States at Wine.com.
This is a great wine club for anyone who knows anything about the wine they already love or are interested in exploring. You can be as detailed and specific as you want to be, you can change your preferences as you go, and your sommelier sees your feedback about every bottle.
For You Save 50% — Try Firstleaf and get 6 bottles of wine selected just for you for just $44.95. Shipping is included in your first order. Click for This Deal.
For You Save $100 — Try firstleaf and get $100 off (total) your first three personalized boxes of wine. Shipping is included for the first box. Until Dec 31. Click for This Deal.
An affordably-priced personalized wine club that learns what you like as you receive, drink, and rate six-bottle shipments. Firstleaf has the most customization options of any wine club I’ve reviewed and is well worth a portion of your wine budget.
Compared with other affordable and personalized wine clubs, I think Firstleaf has nailed ease-of-use, presentation, and offers reasonably-interesting wines. I 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. Now you have many options to upgrade, too.
Since Firstleaf is a personalized wine subscription, gifts are given as electronic gift cards. This gives the recipient the chance to customize the wine selection, as they're meant to do. Gift cards are issued in denominations of $25-200. We recommend at least $100 to make sure he or she doesn't have to pay for any part of the first box.
by The California Wine Club
For Gifts Save 10% on wine club gifts of 3 months or more. Until Jan 15. Use code HOLIDAY at checkout.
For Gifts Give any gift of two months or longer and their first shipment will arrive in an upgraded wooden crate. Until Dec 31. Use code RUSTIC at checkout.
This wine subscription focuses on good-quality, well-priced wines from small family wineries in California. It is perfect to give as a gift or to join yourself.
The California Wine Club appears on many of our lists of best wine clubs because they overdeliver on value, customer service, and quality.
The Premier Series is the perfect wine gift for a Californai wine lover. For an extra $18 you order a pre-wine gift package announcing the gift. Send it to yourself to present in person on the big day or send it directly to your wine lover so they know the wine is coming.

Good satisfaction guarantee
Good wine club gift
An old-school wine of the month club that has every detail buttoned down tight. If you want to discover affordable wines from around the world, and you want a reliable service to deliver them, the International Wine of the Month Club’s Premier Series is a great place to start.
When I recommend a wine club gift (which is frequently), I often recommend this club. It’s a great mix of value and discovery, showcasing grapes and regions not typically found on the shelves at wine stores (and definitely not at big box stores).
Wine club gifting is an area that this company excels at. They give you the most options of any two-bottle wine club, from when you pay for each shipment, to all of the standard customizations, gift notice options, etc. The first shipment of all gifts includes organza-wrapped bottles for an extra touch.
A rare French wine club featuring affordable selections from a variety of wine regions within France. They tend to work with smaller producers offering either exceptional value or something unusual.
Everything you want in a wine club, especially if you love French wine. Their wine program is created by a multi-generational wine family from Bordeaux with great connections and taste in wine. Unlike some other specialty wine clubs, this one is priced perfectly.
by Wired For Wine ®
Among all of the case clubs (12 bottles, typically shipped quarterly), this 90+ International wine club is among the best two deals. The other focuses only on California wine, but this one takes you on a journey around the world. Enjoy eclectic wines at the best prices you'll find.
It's so easy to get into a wine rut and stick with what you know. Wired For Wine ® helps you break out of that rut in a low-cost, satisfaction guaranteed way so you can find new wines to love. Also, when compared with similarly-priced case clubs, this one stands out for wine quality in a big way.
One of our favorite wine of the month clubs, this Light & Sweet club is the perfect choice for so many wine drinkers who prefer fruity and sweeter wines to drier styles. If you are someone, or know someone, who loves wines like Moscato, Riesling and Gewurztraminer, sign up for this wine club because it's the only one like it out there in the wine club universe.
I strongly support all niche wine clubs. The taste of wine is subjective and I think everyone should drink what they love. Given the high delivery fees from Vinesse, we recommend joining the 12-bottle wine club and have the shipments sent as often as is appropriate.
There aren't a lot of wine club gifts for wine lovers who like their wine on the sweeter side. It's too bad because these wines are food-friendly and also great for drinking before the meal. If your wine lover likes it sweeter (not dessert sweet) than this is an awesome wine club gift.
by Organic Wine Exchange
For You Get 10% off the first three shipments when you join an Organic Wine Exchange club. Use code WC10X3 at checkout.
The perfect wine club for organic wine drinkers, Organic Wine Exchange (OWE) offers so many personalization options that everyone can get the best organic wine club for their needs. Choose Organic, Biodynamic, Vegan, No Sulfites Added, or all of the above.
Proprietor Annie Arnold has gone out of her way to bring her love of organic wine to wine consumers in a convenient way with a great wine club. Annie is doing everything she can to make buying great organic wine easy.
When giving a gift, Organic wine clubs are hard to find. Most are set up as ongoing subscriptions, which is great if you're buying for yourself, but less great when you want to give someone the joy of organic wine. The OWE clubs make great gifts, but they're not big on gift presentation. A custom gift note in the first box is the extent of the pomp and circumstance. That's just right for a wine club focused on wines that are eco-friendly.
These white wine clubs all earned a rating of at least 4 stars from us. We are a little more lax because we wanted to include wine club gifts for people who like specific kinds of wine. They’re sorted by rating, from highest to lowest. If you didn’t find what you were looking for in the list above, you might find it here.
