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).

Overview: From the original Wine of the Month Club (really, they're the first!) you get wine delivered every month at really low 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.

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.
