All Wine of the Month Clubs for Wine Enthusiasts

Join a Wine Enthusiasts wine of the month club


You're a discerning wine drinker, and you know what you like. You've become accustomed to quality wines that express their terroir and grape variety. You probably know what you like and have a lust for finding new wines to love. Not every wine club is well-suited to your refined preferences, but we've picked out subscriptions for wine enthusiasts and experienced wine drinkers.

What makes a good wine club for enthusiasts? Aside from a certain consistent quality of wine, wine clubs that get our enthusiast nod of approval offer unusual selections of grapes and regions, typically offer smaller production wines and wines from small wineries, and choose wines with special qualities.

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.

Please note: if you join or give a wine club after clicking our links we might earn a commission.

What We Love: Lately we'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, we 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 different selections (three of each if you upgrade to 12 bottles).

The Limited Series

All-Around Rating:

Exclusive Deal For Gifts Save 10% on any wine of the month club gift. Use code BESTWINE at checkout or Click for This Deal.

Overview: These are the highest level wines you can get in a membership from The Original Wine of the Month Club ™, generally well-made wines from well-known areas. At $25-30 a bottle, it's competitive with several other wine clubs on price, but the wines are little more "traditional" and not discovery oriented.

What We Love: Paul Kalemkiarian, second generation proprietor at Wine of the Month Club ™ goes out of his way to source interesting wines, and in this price point that can be a challenge, particularly in finding California wines. So he leans on an International selection to bring you better value in this price range.

Wine Club Gift Info: If you want to give a wine of the month club as a gift this year, but your budget is constrained, this is a good choice. You'll be giving four months for what most other clubs charge for three, and they offer a fun gift presentation, too.

Bubbles & Rosé Club

All-Around Rating:

Exclusive Deal For You & For Gifts Save 10% on your first order, gifts and memberships. Use code WCRVINLEY at checkout.

Overview: Sometimes you want bubbly, sometimes you want rosé, and with this club you can get both from small wineries offering exceptional value. 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: Rosé has experienced a meteoric rise to popularity, because it plays well in so many different styles, and these sommelier-selected sparkling rosés (and still rosé, too) scratch that rosé itch. We especially love how the selections are dry and fruity without being too sweet.

For Gifts Save $15 when you give a 6-month wine club gift. Use code SAVE15 at checkout.


For Gifts Save $25 when you give a year of wine gift. Use code SAVE25 at checkout.

Overview: Our favorite series offered by The International Wine of the Month Club, we really dig the interesting, high-end, European-focused wines that arrive at our door. We've been able to find Italian and French red wines we enjoy courtesy of this wine club, which helps us understand the wine from these countries in a more nuanced way.

What We Love: More than anything, we love surprise factor of these wines. Every time we open a box, we sort of grimace at the prospect of drinking a Rhone red or an Barolo (wines that we typically don't enjoy because of our own palate preferences), but we're always surprised at how the wines are enjoyable anyway, and usually much better than we were expecting.

Wine Club Gift Info: 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.

Overview: This is the happy medium of wine clubs they offer as you get one bottle from their entry-level subscription and one bottle from their premium membership.

Elevant Society Wine Club

by Vinesse
All-Around Rating:

Overview: The premium-level wine club from Vinesse where over the years we've seen the quality-to-price ratio go from incredible to disappointing and everywhere in between. If you want a wine of the month club that delivers better quality wines that you can't easily find, but want the protection of a rock-solid satisfaction guarantee, this is a good choice.

What We Love: We like that you can decide how much of this wine club you want in your household's wine mix. You can choose 2, 4, 6, 8, or 12 bottles per shipment, though the delivery choices of 5, 7, or 14 times a year are kind of odd. Like most wine clubs, we advocate for joining with the highest number of bottles at an appropropriate frequency to save on shipping costs — a big savings with Vinesse.

Sparkling Wine Club

by Vinesse
All-Around Rating:

Overview: A three-bottle sparkling wine club that makes it easy to always have bubbly on hand for a special occasion or just because bubbly wine is fun to drink. This is one of the better value wine clubs from Vinesse and we always think it makes for a great wine subscription.

What We Love: We love that each shipment contains a budget-friendly selection like Prosecco, a mid-range selection like a California sparkling wine, and a true Champagne for a special occasion.

Italian Stallions

All-Around Rating:

Overview: From the wine sales partner for Wine Enthusiast magazine, this wine of the month club is perfect for Italian wine lovers. There aren't many Italian wine clubs out there, and the selection from WineExpress is solid. For a value-oriented approach to learning about wine from Italy, this is a good bet.

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? When it comes to Italian wine specifically, we trust WineExpress to pick better wines than what's available at our local stores.

Connoisseur's Choice

All-Around Rating:

Overview: From the wine sales partner for Wine Enthusiast magazine, this wine of the month club is a no-hassle way to try new wines from around the world.

Four Seasons Wine Club

by Vinesse
All-Around Rating:

Overview: While it's a misnomer to call this a Four Seasons wine club (because you actually get a fifth shipment just in time for the holidays, to bring to parties or to serve at your own), it's still a great value wine club. Designed to compete with other big name quarterly case clubs, the Vinesse Four/Five Seasons club is also tailored to the season, so you get lighter wines in the summer and heavier wines to help get you through the long winter.

What We Love: It's better to ship more wine less often, so we like the way they've compressed a normal 2-bottle monthly club

We're also pleased that the wine quality has improved to be competitive with other wine clubs in this general price range ($12-18 a bottle).
