Organic Wine Clubs & Natural Wine Clubs
If you’re interested in discovering or gifting organic wine (and related kinds of wine), we recommend a wine subscription. While organic, and natural wine especially, are very popular right now, they represent less than 1% of the wines produced in the world. This means you won’t find organic, biodynamic, or natural wine in most wine clubs (or even in most wine stores).
Organic & Biodynamic are terms which mostly refer to the methods of farming the grapes. Sometimes these wines are certified as organic or biodynamic, but sometimes they’re not. For wines produced in the US, there is an alternative label “Made with organic grapes” which implies sulfites were added during winemaking (sulfites are a common wine preservative).
Sustainable. Sustainable grape-growing is an important part of the wine production picture. There are many local agencies who determine what it means to be sustainable in a particular wine region (like Napa Green and SIP in Central California). A word of caution: not all sustainability certifications require the vineyard to be organic (Napa Green does not, SIP does). Also, not all organically-farmed wines are concerned with sustainability of the ecosystem surrounding the vineyards.
Natural wine, a term which describes winemaking more than farming, is focused on low- or minimal intervention during winemaking and relies on native yeast present on the grapes at harvest for fermentation. These wines tend to have higher acidity and lower alcohol. While the terms organic and Biodynamic have clear definitions, there is no agreed upon standard for Natural wine.
FYI: We find great wine deals so you don’t have to. To keep us on the hunt, we earn a commission when you buy wine based on our recommendations.

An Emphasis on Organic, Natural, and Sustainability
These wine subscriptions ship mostly organic wine, some are biodynamic, and some are natural.
If you’re not familiar with Eater, it is a widely-read online publication focused on food and beverages. They have locally-based editorial staff which gets to know the restaurants, wine shops, and breweries in each area, then rates and reviews them and discusses local trends.
Eater decided they should offer their own wine club to support these local communities and offer their readership a selection of wines beyond what you’ll find at the grocery store or most wine shops. Each month a new wine professional from a different location in the US chooses the wines which will be included in the shipment based on what they’re currently excited to drink.
The Eater Wine Club is managed by MYSA Natural Wine, but the selection is not strictly natural, organic, or biodynamic. The goal of the wine club is to prefer these farming and winemaking methods, but they want to give the local wine pros a chance to show us what’s great without these limits.
Eater is available as a two- or four-bottle monthly wine subscription. The two-bottle version costs $70 and the four-bottle version is $110. Both include free shipping and a monthly virtual wine party where the wine professional who picked the wines talks about them, and all of the wine club members in attendance can be social.
The Eater Wine Club is also available as a gift. You can choose a one-time box or a two- or three-month subscription.
Eater ships everywhere in the US Except: Alabama, Alaska, Hawaii, Kentucky, Mississippi, and Utah.
Plonk Wine Club has always been one of our favorites. The eclectic and food-friendly wine selection, curated by certified sommelier Etty Klein, is always organic or biodynamic and her preference is for low-intervention wines. In terms of organic and biodynamic, Plonk works with wineries who are both certified and not certified. They describe their selection as:
“We curate natural wines that are grown using organic, biodynamic and sustainable vineyard practices.
That means no pesticides, herbicides or commercial additives such as colorants, acidifiers, artificial sugars, alcohol enhancements, or industrial chemicals of any kind. This also includes wines that contain minimal or no added sulfites.”
The best deal on a Plonk wine club is a 12-bottle subscription for $285 which you can receive, monthly, every other month, or quarterly. They also offer four-bottle ($110) and six-bottle ($160) subscriptions with four or six unique wines in each box, available monthly.
You can choose red wine, white wine, or a mix which includes rosé sometimes. Shipping is included for all Plonk wine clubs and orders.
Plonk ships everywhere in the US except: Alaska, Hawaii, Mississippi, New Hampshire, and Utah.
Organic Wine Clubs & Biodynamic Wine Clubs
These wine subscriptions are specifically organized around promoting organic wine and biodynamic wine. Every wine shipped is at least organic and some are biodynamic.
Shipping directly from wine experts in Rome, the Roscioli Italian Wine Clubs feature organic and biodynamic wines. In Italy, small producers all farm organically as a custom, so very few actively seek out certification. Roscioli’s staff visit every winery they work with doing their own verification of organic/biodynamic practices.
Every wine you receive from Roscioli tells a story and if you’re curious about Italian wine, there is no better wine club to join. I considered myself “not a fan” until I tried the wine from Roscioli and I was blown away. Much of what is available in the US is not the best of what Italy can offer which is why a special wine club like Roscioli is the best way to learn about the breadth of wine from Italy’s small family producers.
Priced in Euros, Roscioli sends wine shipments twice a year. Their Italian Wine Clubs are offered at two pricing levels and you’ll receive 12 unique bottles in each shipment. There are definitely some logistical quirks about this wine club so we suggest reading our full review for more details.
Roscioli ships everywhere but Utah.
No wine club we’ve reviewed does more to cater to this niche than Organic Wine Exchange: an online organic wine superstore. Ann Arnold curates monthly and quarterly shipments from the largest selection of organic wines in the US (that we’ve been able to find), every single wine on her site is organic. But she takes it further…
They also offer a wine club with only Biodynamic wines (the only one we know of). You can further specialize your wine club by choosing red wine, white wine, or a mix. You can also customize your membership to a specific region, a specific grape variety, or even a host of other constraints like Vegan, Low Alcohol, Low Sugar, No Sulfites Added, and Non-GMO.
The Organic Wine Club price ranges from $80-285 per shipment depending on how many bottles you get and how often you receive them. Shipping is included. This wine club is also offered as a gift subscription and can be customized.
The Biodynamic Wine Club, Vegan Wine Club, and No-Sulfites Added Wine Club all range from $85-272 per shipment depending on how many bottles you get and how often you receive them. Shipping is included.
Organic Wine Exchange ships wine clubs to every state but: Alabama, Delaware, Kentucky, Mississippi, and Utah.
Natural Wine Clubs
Natural is a more established wine preference in Europe than here in the US, so when you search for Natural wine subscriptions in Google you might find services based in the UK, Germany, and beyond that don’t ship to the US. We only include Natural wine subscriptions that ship to the US on this page.
This list is not exhaustive of options available in the US and as we have not yet reviewed any of these clubs, this section is more of a roundup.
MYSA Natural Wine Club |
MYSA (pronounced mee-sah) is a natural wine merchant. As noted, Natural wine is not an agreed-upon standard in the wine world, so each seller creates their own definition. MYSA defines their selection this way:
“...natural wines from small producers, farmed sustainably, and made with minimal intervention. You’ll find traits like organic, biodynamic, native yeasts, unfined, unfiltered and vegan in most of our wines.”
MYSA ships mixed and red wine subscription boxes every month, every other month, and quarterly. Pricing is $84.95 for three bottles, $139.95 for six bottles, and $249.95 for twelve bottles. Shipping is included. Save 15% on your first shipment with promo code CLUB15.
They also now offer (perhaps for a limited time) an Orange Natural Wine Club for $124.95 for four bottles delivered monthly.
MYSA ships wine everywhere but: Alabama, Alaska, Hawaii, Kentucky, Mississippi, and Utah.
VinoVore Wolfpack Club |
While I have not had the pleasure of trying the Vinovore Wolfpack wine club, I’m delighted to see it is a Coly Den Haan project. A long time ago, when I lived in Los Angeles and was just getting started in wine, a friend and I went to her wine bar The Must. It was a transformative day for me regarding the breadth of what’s available in the world (and the tater tots were great, too).
A couple of projects later, Haan is back with a Natural wine bar in Los Angeles and a wine club to go with it. “Owner/Sommelier Coly Den Haan chooses 2-4 wines each month to provide you with fierce drinking pleasure. Run with the WOLFPACK and savor notable, natural wines made by women winemakers.”
Vinovore members are asked to make a three-month commitment and shipping is extra. They offer two subscriptions: The Hair of the Dog (2-3 bottles for $45/month) and Party Animal (4-5 bottles for $75/month). Get a discount for prepaying.
Pick up at Vinovore if you’re in LA or have your subscription shipments sent here: AK, CA, DC, ID, LA, NE, ND, NM, NV, OR, VA, WV, WY.
Dry Farm Wines |
Dry Farm Wines offers a Natural wine club but they further restrict their wine selection to include: Sugar-free, lower-alcohol, lower sulfites, mycotoxin/mold free, no industrial additives, Biodynamically farmed, dry farmed (no irrigation), minimal intervention, older vines (generally 35-100 years), wild native yeast, small production, Keto and Paleo friendly, vegan, and low carb.
They claim to lab test every wine they ship rather than rely on information provided by the winemakers.
Dry Farm Wines offers two wine club levels: six bottles for $159 or twelve bottles $299 per shipment. You can choose monthly delivery or every other month and shipping is included.
Dry Farm Wine ships to every state but: Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Mississippi, and Utah.
Primal Wine |
Primal Wine says, “Natural wine is a type of wine made in small batches from hand-harvested organic or biodynamic grapes with minimal intervention in the cellar.”
Along these lines, Primal Wine offers monthly deliveries of natural wine with their Primal Wine Club. Priced similarly to other wine clubs in this space, three-bottle clubs are $85, six-bottle subscriptions are $155, and twelve-bottle clubs are $285 per box. Shipping is included.
Primal Wine does not disclose which states it ships to.
