All Free Shipping Wine of the Month Clubs

Join a Free Shipping wine of the month club

You're looking for wine clubs with free shipping? Okay, here they are. And... here's our caveat. Free shipping on wine clubs where you pre-pay the entire amount (usually for a gift, but not necessarily) is okay. Free shipping on ongoing subscriptions is not okay. We feel this latter practice is deceptive because you don't know how much the wine you're purchasing is worth and how much of what you're paying is for shipping and packaging costs.

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

Bubbles & Rosé Club

by Vinley Market
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.

Wine Club Gift Info: The Bubbles & Rosé wine club makes a terrific gift for anyone who enjoys wine. These somm-selected dry rosés, both still and sparkling, are one of our favorite wine club gifts because every box is fun and brings joy. Gift message available, but no gift wrap.

Chardonnay Wine Club

by Vinesse
All-Around Rating:

If Chardonnay is your thing and that's all you want to drink, now you can get monthly deliveries of your favorite fruit juice. Plus, you get Vinesse's rock solid satisfaction guarantee for every bottle, taking all of the risk out of joining a wine club.

What We Love: We strongly support all niche wine clubs. The taste of wine is subjective and we think everyone should drink what they love. Given the high delivery fees on this Chardonnay subscription from Vinesse, we recommending joining the 12-bottle wine club and have the shipments sent as often as is appropriate.

This means that if you're looking for a Chardonnay Wine Club Gift to give, this is the place to get it!

No special wrapping or fanfare, just Chardonnay.

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.

Overview: Naked Wines isn’t really a wine club the way you think of one, but it’s a personalized wine buying service that you pay into on a monthly subscription so… we treat it like one. It also happens to be the most interesting wine club we’ve come across in a while.

What We Love: The list of things we love about Naked Wines is long, but here are some of our favorite bits: the wines we tried were excellent and priced exceptionally well; the winemakers interact with commenters on a regular basis; you can make this wine club anything you want it to be.

90+ Wine Club

by Wired For Wine ®
All-Around Rating:

Overview: 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.

What We Love: 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.

Red Wine Club

by Plonk Wine Club
All-Around Rating:

For You & For Gifts Save $10 on any order and get a free double-hinged corkscrew with your first shipment. Use code NEWMEMBER at checkout.

Overview: The Plonk red wine club has always been among our favorites because of the proprietor's preference for quirky but delectable wines. Etty Lewensztain sources interesting wines made from grapes and regions you've never heard of (and some you have). Whether you choose four or twelve bottles you'll be glad you picked Plonk.

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).

Wine by the Glass Club

by VineBox
All-Around Rating:

Overview: One-of-a-kind wine tasting club which delivers wine by the glass instead of in full size bottles so you can taste your way through sommelier-selected grown up juice. Reorder full bottles or more glasses of what you love. Now delivered quarterly.

What We Love: We especially love that sommelier Tyler Kennedy picks the wine — and it shows. We’ve been super impressed with the quality of each wine we’ve received. The unusual selection genuinely seems like a somm picked the wines. We also love the pricing which rewards bigger customers.

Wine Club Gift Info: This is, by far, our favorite wine club gift for adventurous drinkers, light drinkers, and even wine professionals. In addition to a top-notch sommelier-curated wine selection, the packaging is novel and fun, and really well-constructed. Save big with longer subscriptions and when you double the order for two people to enjoy.

The Limited Series

by Wine of the Month Club ®
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. Also, our readers can save 10% on all pre-paid gift memberships with coupon code BESTWINE, worth at least $25.

GrapeSeed Selections

by GrapeSeed Wine
All-Around Rating:

Overview: Grapeseed Wine started out as a way to have customers help fund one-time wine productions by acclaimed winemakers, but now it's a wine club, too. Get preferred pricing on all of their new releases and enjoy helping stellar winemakers stretch their winemaking creativity.

What We Love: We're big fans of any group that has exclusive wines because they produced them (as opposed to buying out a full production of someone else's wine)

The World of Wine Club

by Vinesse
All-Around Rating:

For You Join today and save $120 on your first shipment (six wines are only $9.75 each) PLUS get two bonus bottles of a Russian River Valley Pinot Noir ($50 value). Click for This Deal.

Overview: We really enjoy this International wine club where each shipment contains six different wines from a single wine region somewhere in the world. Of the many clubs that offer an International selection, most aren't themed for additional wine discovery and education.

What We Love: We received shipments of this wine club for years because it always kept a good variety of food-friendly and affordable wines on hand, we never opened a bottle we were disappointed with, and we feel this club offers a good quality-to-price ratio.

Champagne Club

by Henri's Reserve
All-Around Rating:

Overview: We already go weak in the knees for a great champagne, but the shipment we received has us wishing the next shipment would get here sooner. A mouth-watering way to explore the region of Champagne, particularly from boutique grower houses that rarely export to the United States.

What We Love: A delightful and decadent way to treat yourself (or pamper a lucky gift recipient), Henri's Reserve is a playful yet sophisticated true Champagne Club, featuring top-notch small producers.

Wine Down Box

by Wine Down Box
All-Around Rating:

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.

Wine Club Gift Info: We think Wine Down Box makes a better gift than a subscription for yourself. The wine selection is excellent and the pairings are well done, so the delight of a party in a box arriving every month can't be beat. Every box comes packed for presentation and freshness.

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.

All-Around Rating:

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

Overview: The Adventurer's Wine Box implies you never know what you're going to get, but you can bet since it's coming from Vinley Market it's probably going to be pretty good. Great wine value delivered monthly.

What We Love: They don't make a big deal out of it, but the wines selected for this subscription are handpicked by a sommelier who loves the taste and the value of every bottle. And it shows.

The Vintners Series

Overview: This is the mid-range membership from The Original Wine of the Month Club ™, offering generally well-made wines from well-known areas. At $15-20 a bottle, it's competitive with several other wine clubs on price, but they're more willing to push the envelope on lesser-known wine regions and grape varieties.

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.

QPR Club (Kosher)

by KosherWine.com
All-Around Rating:

Overview: For Jews who keep kosher, buying wine can be a challenge as most stores don't have a section of Kosher wine clearly marked. KosherWine.com is like Wine.com, but every wine is in the Kosher section. Fun fact: there's way more Kosher wine available than just the stuff made from Concord grapes for Passover (Kiddush wine)!

What We Love: We love that while the market for Kosher wine in the U.S. is limited, this group still forges ahead to make sure there is a good-quality option available for Jews who keep kosher but like wine, especially on holidays. Because Kashrut law (the rules that decide what's kosher and what's not) prohibits consuming many kinds of animals, most Kosher wine is also good for Vegans (just double-check whether or not egg whites were used before you buy).

Wine Club Gift Info: If you want to send a wine club gift to someone who keeps kosher, this is your best bet. They don't really offer anything gifty (other than allowing you to pre-pay for the whole subscription), but you can have a gift message included in the first shipment.

Pinot Noir Wine Club

by Vinesse
All-Around Rating:

Overview: We recently received several shipments from Vinesse, including the Pinot Noir club, and they've really stepped up their wine buying. If you're interested in more than just California Pinot Noir and you don't want to spend a ton of money on it, we really recommend this Pinot Noir wine club. Plus, you get Vinesse's rock solid satisfaction guarantee for every bottle, taking all of the risk out of joining a wine club.

What We Love: We strongly support all niche wine clubs. The taste of wine is subjective and we think everyone should drink what they love. Given the high delivery fees on this Pinot Noir subscription from Vinesse, we recommending joining the 12-bottle wine club and have the shipments sent as often as is appropriate.

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.

What We Love: Paul Kalemkiarian, second generation proprietor at Wine of the Month Club ™ goes out of his way to source interesting wines at rock bottom prices. He always is looking for ways to cram more value into his shipments, and being a member comes with the perk of receiving opportunities to buy addititional wine at ultra-low closeout prices.

The proprietor drives a hard bargain and passes those deals onto his customers. This California Series is like their mid-level wine club but it focuses only on California wine. It's perfect for people who aren't sure if they're "wine club people" and as a gift to a young wine-lover just starting to explore.

What We Love: Paul Kalemkiarian, second generation proprietor at Wine of the Month Club ™ goes out of his way to source interesting wines, and for this wine club, he only ships the best California wines he finds at this price point, after tasting hundreds each month of course.

Cabernet Wine Club

by Vinesse
All-Around Rating:

Overview: We recently received several shipments from Vinesse, including the Cabernet Sauvignon club, and they've really stepped up their wine buying. If you're interested in more than just California Cabernet and you don't want to spend a ton of money on it, we really recommend this Cabernet wine club. Plus, you get Vinesse's rock solid satisfaction guarantee for every bottle, taking all of the risk out of joining a wine club.

What We Love: We strongly support all niche wine clubs. The taste of wine is subjective and we think everyone should drink what they love. Given the high delivery fees on this Cabernet subscription from Vinesse, we recommending joining the 12-bottle wine club and have the shipments sent as often as is appropriate.

California Treasures

by Vinesse
All-Around Rating:

Overview: California produces some of the best wines in the world, with stunning wines to sip from up and down the extra large state, but this is not the wine club to buy them from. California Treasures ships wine at $15-17 a bottle, plus shipping, but this isn't a price-point where California wine excels. It's better in the mass-produced sub-$15 price range, and at $25+.

What We Love: One of the best features of any of the Vinesse wine clubs is their tasting notes. They sometimes feel a little sparse, but you always get the basic wine information, some winemaker info, a food pairing suggestion, and most-importantly, cellaring instructions (not that we think these are cellarworthy selections).

Connoisseur's Choice

by WineExpress (Wine Enthusiast)
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. We don't agree with the name "Connoisseur's Choice" for $20-ish wines. The wine director at WineExpress, Josh Farrell, hand picks each wine for their subscriptions.

Italian Stallions

by WineExpress (Wine Enthusiast)
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.

Great Clubs Wine Club

by Clubs of America
All-Around Rating:

Overview: This is a company who sells many "of the month clubs" but has developed and maintain an excellent reputation for quality and customer service. That said, their wine of the month club isn't exactly pedigree-focused and most of the selections are from large-scale productions. It makes a great gift, especially for someone who loves wine but doesn't spend much on it.

What We Love: We haven't received a shipment of this wine club so we can't speak to the wine, but the pricing is exceptional for a wine of the month club gift and this makes an easy pick for a young wine drinker who's just starting out.

Wine Club Gift Info: This wine club is designed as a gift subscription, and as such they have really covered the bases to make giving a wine club gift easy for you. They offer every option you can think of for a monthly club and the low monthly price which includes shipping is almost too good to believe.

Red Wine of the Month

by Gourmet Food Clubs
All-Around Rating:

Overview: This red wine of the month club focuses on California's Central Coast, including Paso Robles, San Luis Obispo, and Santa Barbara County. These regions are known for fruit-forward and high-alcohol red wines, also known as Big Reds, and are the perfect accompaniment for steaks, pizzas, and burgers. Explore one of California's fastest-growing wine regions with this club.

What We Love: These guys actually live and taste on the Central Coast of California, so they know what's good and they have great relationships to get great deals. We also like even though their wine club is pre-paid (meaning you're "committing" to a few months), they reward members who pre-pay for more shipments with better prices.

Cabernet Wine Club

by Gourmet Food Clubs
All-Around Rating:

Overview: One of the few red wine of the month clubs which exclusively ships Cabernet Sauvignon, with a focus on the California Central Coast, especially Paso Robles. The Cabernet produced in this region is known for natural acidity and big fruit. As a cool-climate grape growing in a warm-climate region, some vintages are definitely better than others. Please note: we have never received a shipment from this wine club.

What We Love: We're not especially enthusiastic about any aspect of this wine club.

Chardonnay Wine Club

by Gourmet Food Clubs
All-Around Rating:

Overview: A rare Chardonnay of the month club, this is an excellent choice for anyone who prefers Chardonnay as the wines all come from California's Central Coast. Edna Valley and Santa Barbara County are some of California's premium Chardonnay-growing regions and are included among the Chardonnays which ship with this club. Please note: we have never received a shipment from this wine club.

What We Love: Chardonnay is the most widely planted grape in the world and doesn't always get the love it deserves. While some producers choose to oak up their Chardonnay, others rely on malolactic fermentation to create a buttery flavor profile. We like the creamy, fruity Chardonnays that come from this wine region.

American Cellars (ACWC)

All-Around Rating:

For You Join today and get a 6-piece insulated wine tote included with your third wine club shipment (a $37.95 value). Click for This Deal.

Overview: A wine club with a checkered past that is working its way toward redemption, American Cellars Wine Club offers monthly 6-bottle shipments of white or red wine, or a mix. Each shipment allows you to swap out any of the six bottles and order more of the others (at member prices), or upgrade your shipment by selecting any wine in their inventory (at regular prices).

What We Love: We're glad to see that Vinesse is stepping up their game, adding a deeper level of personalization and choice to their flagship wine club, as well as an easy way to opt out of a shipment online. 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).
