The Classic 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: This value-driven International wine club with a very popular following from the Original Wine of the Month Club ™ lets you pick red wine, white wine, or a mix. Whether you're buying for yourself or as a gift, this is one of the lowest cost wine clubs around.

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.

Could Be Better: Most wine subscriptions in the $12 / bottle price range (does not include shipping) offers wines that have flaws. While we think these wines are better quality than others in this price range, we sometimes we pick up off flavors in the Classic Series selections. We'd like to see a drop more quality control for this subscription.

Rich Reds Wine Club

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 red wine from around the world. The wine director at WineExpress, Josh Farrell, hand picks each wine for their subscriptions.

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?

Could Be Better: It's been a long time since we received a shipment from WineExpress, but the last ones we received we felt sent out an uninspiring selection of wine (medium- to large-production and widely available) and were priced too close to retail to be considered a good deal. We'd like to see them include previously-shipped wines on their wine club pages.

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.

Could Be Better: We'd love to see customers rewarded for buying bigger allotments. "Buy more save more" pricing would be a great addition to the line-up. We'd also really like to see the shipping costs come down dramatically.

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.

Could Be Better: We'd love to see customers rewarded for buying bigger allotments. "Buy more save more" pricing would be a great addition to the line-up. We'd also really like to see the shipping costs come down dramatically.

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.

Could Be Better: It's been a long time since we received a shipment from WineExpress, but the last ones we received we felt sent out an uninspiring selection of wine (medium- to large-production and widely available) and were priced too close to retail to be considered a good deal. We'd like to see them include previously-shipped wines on their wine club pages.

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. 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.

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?

Could Be Better: It's been a long time since we received a shipment from WineExpress, but the last ones we received we felt sent out an uninspiring selection of wine (medium- to large-production and widely available) and were priced too close to retail to be considered a good deal. We'd like to see them include previously-shipped wines on their wine club pages.

Laithwaites Wine Club

All-Around Rating:

For You Join today and get 12 bottles of wine PLUS four free crystal wine glasses for $69.99. Until Jan 15. Click for This Deal.


For You Join today and get 15 bottles of wine for just $69.99 — choose Red, White, or Mixed wine. Same as voucher. Click for This Deal.

Overview: The Laithwaites Wine club was one of the first 12-bottle case clubs offered up as a way to get your quarterly wine fix at value-focused prices. Over the years we've gone back and forth one whether or not they deliver a good value, but in general we think their $12 selections are stronger for white wine than red. Take advantage of their introductory offer of just $69.99 for a case, but be warned, you are signing up for recurring shipments at a much higher price.

What We Love: We've received many shipments of wine from Laithwaites over the years, but we continue to hold the club in relatively low esteem. It's perfect for a wine lover who wants an inexpensive selection of International wine delivered to their door every quarter. It's not good a fit for anyone who likes wine that sells above $15 a the grocery store.

Could Be Better: Because of the success of the WSJwine club (a Laithwaites brand), many other wine clubs are competing with 12-bottle case clubs priced around $170 per quarter (including shipping costs). Some of them are offering much better quality wine for that price so we know they could, too.

Winning Whites

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 white wine from around the world. The wine director at WineExpress, Josh Farrell, hand picks each wine for their subscriptions.

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?

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

Could Be Better: Great value and a great track record are nothing to sneeze at, but we???d like to see a better understanding of where the wines will come from.
