Wine Clubs—Under $50 Per Bottle

Use our wine club ratings to find the best wine clubs where bottles cost less than $50

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 $50 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.

    The World of Wine Club
    by Vinesse
    All-Around Rating:

    Limited Time Offer
    Save $120 on your first shipment (six wines are only $9.75 each) and get two bonus bottles of a Russian River Valley Pinot Noir ($50 value).

    Overview: One of our favorite International wine clubs and one of our favorite Vinesse wine clubs, too. Each shipment contains six wines which introduce you to a new wine region — there are many clubs that do this, but not with six bottles and helpful tasting notes that tell you when it's time to drink your adventures in a bottle. A really fun wine club!

    What We Love: Consistent quality and excellent "discovery" club enhances your wine knowledge and expands your palate.

    Could Be Better: We'd love it customers were rewarded for ordering the bigger shipments. "Buy more save more" would be great!

    Pinot Noir Series
    by Gold Medal Wine Club
    All-Around Rating:

    Limited Time Offer
    Buy more, save more! Save 5% on 12-month gifts. No coupon needed.

    Overview: Pinot Noir is easy to love, and it's so food-friendly that keeping a good supply of it around is a smart idea. While there are a handful of Pinot of the month clubs out there, this one from the Gold Medal Wine Club is among the best, particularly for California wine lovers. Join this club to do a deep-dive into the world of Pinot Noir with high-quality, boutique-production wines.

    What We Love: They seek out truly special Pinot Noir selections from California and around the world. Pinot Noir is a very fussy grape and we're happy to have them do the legwork for us.

    Could Be Better: We don't have any suggestions for what to improve within the Pinot Noir Series wine club. Yay!

    Platinum Series
    by Gold Medal Wine Club
    All-Around Rating:

    Limited Time Offer
    Buy more, save more! Buy 12 months and save 5%. Upgrade to 4 bottles to save another 5% on any number of shipments! No coupon needed.

    Overview: If you're ready to move beyond mid-priced wines but not yet ready to make the leap to luxury, this wine of the month club is a great step to take. You'll get all of the benefits of being a member with The Gold Medal Wine Club, but you'll experience truly premium-quality wines that you won't find at the grocery store or most local wine shops either.

    What We Love: For a wine club that picks out such excellent wine, they don't need to be so customer-friendly on their extra features... but they are! We can't help but love their attention to detail.

    Could Be Better: We don't have any suggestions for what to improve within the Platinum Series wine club. Yay!

    Limited Time Offer
    Buy more, save more! Save 5% on 12-month gifts. No coupon needed.

    Overview: Garagiste is a term which describes up-and-coming winemakers who toil away creating artisanal wines in their, well not usually, garages. If you're someone who wants to be up on the latest and greatest future stars of California winemaking, try the mostly red wine selection of Garagiste wines from the Gold Medal Wine Club.

    What We Love: We look forward to discovering new wineries from all over California. We know we're getting very good wine at below-retail prices and helping small family businesses grow.

    Could Be Better: Like other Gold Medal Wine Club series, we'd really like to see more information about the winemaking and viticulture in the educational materials.

    Bubbles & Rosé Club
    by Vinley Market
    All-Around Rating:

    Limited Time Offer
    New customers save 10% on their first order with coupon code WCR2017

    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.

    Limited Time Offer
    If you're buying the $45 subscription, use the $10 off link (22%). If you're buying the $75 subscription, use the save 20% on your first shipment link ($15).

    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.

    Buy more, save more! Save 5% on 4-shipment gifts. No coupon needed.

    Overview: Whether you choose just the wine or you upgrade to include the regional gourmet treats with the Adventure Package, this quarterly wine club will take you on your own wine-drinking adventure around the world. Extensive regional and winery information goes out with each shipment, chock full of photos that help you feel like you're not really at home, but in a far away wine region.

    What We Love: It's hard to compare a wine club that includes extra goodies to one that doesn't, because come on, most wine lovers love food, too! The fact that you can't get these wines from any other company in the U.S. doesn't hurt either.

    Could Be Better: We don't have any suggestions for what to improve within the International Series wine club. Yay!

    Monthly Wine Box
    by Vinley Market
    All-Around Rating:

    Limited Time Offer
    New customers save 10% on their first order with coupon code WCR2017

    Overview: Vinley Market is interested in the way younger people drink wine. They focus on mid-level wines ($20-30 per bottle) that overdeliver and on highly-curated, adventurous wine drinking.

    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.
