Use our wine club ratings to find the best wine clubs where bottles cost less than $20
There are so many wine clubs available today that choosing a monthly wine membership may seem overwhelming. That's why we're here! This curated list of wine clubs features wines that cost less than $20 per bottle. Our ratings system looks at quality-to-price ratio, shipping costs, uniqueness, and custom features. 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.
Overview: Winc (formerly known as Club W) set out to change the wine industry and for their customers, they've achieved it. By delivering unprecedented value at $13 a bottle and personalized selections geared for every palate, Winc is a standout wine of the month club. If you're ready for more sophisticated wines, you can upgrade to Winc Select. Either way, you can save even more money by participating in their myriad rewards programs.
What We Love: We love how they go above and beyond to reward loyal customers with substantial savings and invitations to a premium level program. No other wine club offers this level of loyalty rewards, or this much fun!
Could Be Better: Winc works so hard to make their service great that it's hard for us to think of something they should do to make it even better.
Overview: Among all of the case clubs (12 bottles, typically shipped quarterly), this is the very best deal you're going to find. Each wine is made by a boutique California winery and is marked way down because you're buying in volume.
What We Love: We asked The California Wine Club for a case club deal and they made one! And now you get to save a TON of money on their already affordable Premier Series wines.
Could Be Better: Normally we'd ask for a deal for this club, but it's already priced as low as it can go, so it's perfect as is!

Overview: If you or some you know loves California wine, this is the perfect wine club to join (or send as a gift). Each month you'll get two bottles of hand-picked wines from some of California's best boutique wineries (small production wineries that usually don't have widespread distribution). You'll discover the hidden corners of California's wine country and enjoy gems from prominent regions, too.
What We Love: When it comes to places to find deals on wine, we often look to The California Wine Club. Not only do they start with great prices on their Premier Series wines, but they also have fantastic discounts after the shipments have gone out.
Could Be Better: The California Wine Club now regularly offers introductory discounts, and that makes this wine club a better value while still delivering fantastic quality. It's now as perfect as it's going to be!
Overview: California is home to some of the world's best wine regions and wineries, many of which are boutique wineries (wine jargon for small wineries with little-to-no distribution). This wine of the month club is a great way to get introduced to what California wine has to offer at reasonable prices. This wine club makes an excellent gift.
What We Love: Consistency. We've been receiving their shipments for months and we've never had a wine we didn't like. You can't really ask for more than that from a wine club.
Could Be Better: We don't have any suggestions for what to improve within the Gold Series wine club. Yay!
Overview: Sometimes you want bubbly, sometimes you want rosé, and with this club you can get both. 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: A very female-focused brand. The wine industry is dominated by men and men predominantly start companies... this is a business that from the ground up is thinking about how women want to interact with their wine clubs. Which is great, because women represent 70% of buyers in the U.S.
Could Be Better: As wine clubs go, the options are pretty limited. They only offer monthly shipments and 2-bottle packages.
Overview: This is a 12-bottle personalized wine club. The personalization starts with the "tasting kit" but is really most impacted by the ratings you provide to wines you receive as full-size bottles. At $14/bottle, this is a convenient way to get your everyday wine delivered.
What We Love: Their best feature is total control of your account online without having to contact customer service — change the contents of your shipment, change your shipment size, have your next shipment sent exactly when you want it, or even cancel online.
Could Be Better: The wines offered in the $6.95 tasting kit have extreme profiles (likely the best way to identify the boundaries of your palate) but the experience is fun anyway. It's important to note: rating the wine triggers the first full-price case to be shipped.
Overview: We've gone back and forth on Vinesse over the years, but we recently received several shipments from them, and they've really stepped up their game. If you're interested in more than just California Chardonnay and you don't want to spend a ton of money on it, we really recommend this Chardonnay 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: By focusing on Chardonnays that come from some of the world's cheaper wine regions, you get to enjoy all that Chardonnay has to offer and save a few bucks while you're at it
Could Be Better: We'd always like to know which wines have been in recent shipments. Their transparency could be better.
Overview: The WSJwine club, one of the first 12-bottle case clubs, is a great way to get quarterly wine delivery at value-focused prices. Their $14 international wine selections typically offer good value, especially as prices keep rising at the grocery store. 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: They have one of the best line-ups of introductory offers for wine clubs we've seen.
Could Be Better: A more customized selection geared toward the Wall Street Journal's specific audience.

Overview: Among other "journey around the wine world" clubs, Wine Awesomness stands out for exceptional educational materials. This is a great wine club for you if you're not sure yet if you're a "wine club" person or if you're looking to give a gift to a young wine-lover who's just starting to discover the world of wine.
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.
Could Be Better: So many people love to give wine subscriptions as gifts, and we think a gift packaging option and customizable gift notifications would add to the subscription gift option.
Overview: One of our favorite wine of the month clubs from Vinesse, this Light & Sweet club is the perfect choice for so many wine drinkers in America who prefer fruity and sweeter wines to drier styles. If you are someone, or know someone, who loves wines like Moscato, Riesling and Gewurtraminer, sign up for this wine club because it's the only one like it out there in the wine club universe.
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.
Could Be Better: We'd love to see customers rewarded for buying bigger allotments. "Buy more save more" would be great!
