California Wine Clubs

Join a California wine of the month club

This is a curated list of California wine of the month clubs. 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.

Limited Time Offer
Bonus Bottle of Bubbly! Treat Your Sweetie! Send a 3-month gift of our Premier Series wine club and we'll include a lovely bottle of sparkling wine ($44 value) on us in the first shipment. Use promo code BUBBLY or click this link. Offer valid until April 1.

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!

Gold Series Club
by Gold Medal Wine Club
All-Around Rating:

Limited Time Offer
Buy more, save more! Buy 6 months or more and save 5%. Buy 12 months and save 10%. Upgrade to 4 bottles to save another 10% on any number of shipments!

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!

Pinot Noir Series
by Gold Medal Wine Club
All-Around Rating:

Limited Time Offer
Buy more, save more! Save 5% on 12-month gifts. No coupon needed.

Overview: Pinot Noir is easy to love, and it's so food-friendly that keeping a good supply of it around is a smart idea. While there are a handful of Pinot of the month clubs out there, this one from the Gold Medal Wine Club is among the best, particularly for California wine lovers. Join this club to do a deep-dive into the world of Pinot Noir with high-quality, boutique-production wines.

What We Love: They seek out truly special Pinot Noir selections from California and around the world. Pinot Noir is a very fussy grape and we're happy to have them do the legwork for us.

Could Be Better: We don't have any suggestions for what to improve within the Pinot Noir Series wine club. Yay!

Limited Time Offer
WineClubReviews Exclusive! Save 50% on your first shipment when enrolling in an ongoing subscription of the Aged Cabernet Series. Use coupon code WCRHALF

Overview: This wine club is perfect for Cabernet lovers who lack the patience to cellar wines, or for those who have come to love Cabernet Sauvignon more recently. Each shipment contains perfectly-cellared boutique California Cabernet Sauvignon that's ready to drink now.

What We Love: We like that they bring you a variety of aged Cabernets, at different levels of quality from exceptional to rarified. While your monthly shipment price will vary, so will the different terroirs and winemaker expression of the king of all varietals.

Could Be Better: We have very little we feel The California Wine Club could do to improve. The prices sometimes feel a bit high, but when you factor in all of the benefits of membership, including a satisfaction guarantee, we still feel like you get what you pay for here.

WineClubReviews Exclusive! Save 50% on your first shipment when enrolling in an ongoing subscription of the Signature Series. Use coupon code WCRHALF

Overview: For the wine connoisseur with a penchant for California wines, this wine of the month club is a sure thing. One of our most favorite wine clubs, the boutique gems delivered by The California Wine Club are ready to drink or can be cellared, but the real reason to join is the benefit of being a member of The California Wine Club — best-in-class customer service with your own personal wine consultant, a top-tier satisfaction guarantee, and discounts on reorders of your favorites (if they're still available).

What We Love: They reward volume purchasing! If you can afford it, by upgrading to the 4-bottle per shipment program you can save up to $13 per bottle.

Could Be Better: We have very little we feel The California Wine Club could do to improve. The prices sometimes feel a bit high, but when you factor in all of the benefits of membership, including a satisfaction guarantee, we still feel like you get what you pay for here.

Special Selections
by Uncorked Ventures
All-Around Rating:

Limited Time Offer
15% off all new wine club subscriptions and gifts. Use coupon code FIFTEEN at checkout.

Overview: Uncorked Ventures focuses on California, Oregon, and Washington wines and delivers high-quality selections from small-production wineries. This is their mid-level club featuring ultra-premium wines from the smallest productions. When you're ready to discover some of the best wine available from U.S. producers and don't want to decide for yourself which wines are worth the money before you buy, try this wine club.

What We Love: We're quite impressed with most of the past selections from Uncorked Ventures, especially as they include some of our favorite West Coast wine-growing regions.

Could Be Better: We'd love to see more content on their website to talk about their wine-selection process, some of the awesome stories from the road, and even their monthly newsletter.

Diamond Series
by Gold Medal Wine Club
All-Around Rating:

Overview: A lot of wines (and wine clubs) call themselves "super premium," but most of them fail to live up to the hype. This quarterly wine club features true luxury wines rated 93+ and finds wines so exclusive that the club is limited to 500 members. This is collector-level access without the hassle of doing your own research.

What We Love: For a wine club that picks out such excellent wine, they don't need to be so customer-friendly on their extra features... but they are! We can't help but love their attention to detail.

Could Be Better: We don't have any suggestions for what to improve within the Diamond Series wine club. Yay!

Platinum Series
by Gold Medal Wine Club
All-Around Rating:

Limited Time Offer
Buy more, save more! Buy 12 months and save 5%. Upgrade to 4 bottles to save another 5% on any number of shipments! No coupon needed.

Overview: If you're ready to move beyond mid-priced wines but not yet ready to make the leap to luxury, this wine of the month club is a great step to take. You'll get all of the benefits of being a member with The Gold Medal Wine Club, but you'll experience truly premium-quality wines that you won't find at the grocery store or most local wine shops either.

What We Love: For a wine club that picks out such excellent wine, they don't need to be so customer-friendly on their extra features... but they are! We can't help but love their attention to detail.

Could Be Better: We don't have any suggestions for what to improve within the Platinum Series wine club. Yay!

Limited Time Offer
Buy more, save more! Save 5% on 12-month gifts. No coupon needed.

Overview: Garagiste is a term which describes up-and-coming winemakers who toil away creating artisanal wines in their, well not usually, garages. If you're someone who wants to be up on the latest and greatest future stars of California winemaking, try the mostly red wine selection of Garagiste wines from the Gold Medal Wine Club.

What We Love: We look forward to discovering new wineries from all over California. We know we're getting very good wine at below-retail prices and helping small family businesses grow.

Could Be Better: Like other Gold Medal Wine Club series, we'd really like to see more information about the winemaking and viticulture in the educational materials.

California Treasures
by Vinesse
All-Around Rating:

Overview: It's been a while since we tried the California wine club from Vinesse, and at last check it left us disappointed. We've received a number of their other wine club's shipments recently and were quite impressed with how far the quality has come since they hired a new wine buyer. It's probably time for us to try the California Treasures club again, but in the mean time, we don't recommend it.

What We Love: California wines can get pricey because real estate is so expensive here, but Vinesse finds great bargains to represent California

Could Be Better: Considering there'???s a glut of high-end California wine on the market, we think this wine club could deliver better quality wine for these value prices
