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

Limited Time Offer
Buy more, save more! Buy 6 months or more and save 5%. Buy 12 months and save 10%. Upgrade to 4 bottles to save another 10% on any number of shipments!

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!

Buying for yourself? Get your first shipment for $9.98 and a bonus bottle for 1 penny more!

Overview: From the original Wine of the Month Club (really, they're the first!) you get wine delivered every month at surprisingly low prices. The proprietor drives a hard bargain and passes those deals onto his customers. The Limited Series is their premium-level wine club and it's a nice choice when you're looking for "better" wines but still pinching your pennies. It also makes a really nice gift.

What We Love: We love that Paul streams his wine-tasting sessions live over the Internet so we can see what he's tasting and how much he's rejected.

Could Be Better: No recommendations for improvement here. This wine club sets the bar high as a standard for all other wine clubs.

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!

Chardonnay Wine Club
by Vinesse
All-Around Rating:

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.

Light & Sweet Wine Club
by Vinesse
All-Around Rating:

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!

Limited Time Offer
Introductory offer: $69.99 for 12 bottles of wine! Also choose between free bonus gifts: 3 bottles of wine or a deluxe, lever-action corkscrew.

Overview: The WSJWine 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 for some time we've thought their $12 wine selections really can't be beat for 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.

Red Wine Club
by GrapeSeed Wine
All-Around Rating:

Limited Time Offer
Free shipping! Exclusive free shipping offer is good one per customer and includes all items in your order. Use promo code WCR_REWARD at checkout. Offer good until Dec 31, 2017.

Overview: Grapeseed Wine started out as a way to have customers help fund one-time wine productions by acclaimed winemakers, but now it's a red wine club, too. Get preferred pricing on all of their new releases and enjoy helping stellar winemakers stretch their winemaking creativity.

What We Love: We're big fans of any group that has exclusive wines because they produced them (as opposed to buying out a full production of someone else's wine)

Could Be Better: We'd like to see more options available, particularly for gifting, but also for delivery frequency. We're looking forward to the next release of Grapeseed wines to augment the selection.

WineClubReviews Exclusive! Save 50% on your first shipment when enrolling in an ongoing subscription of the International Series. Use coupon code WCRHALF

Overview: This wine club features wines from Oregon and Washington — two U.S. award-winning wine regions. Using the same methods and ideas of wine selection as they've used for years in California, The California Wine Club has translated their vision to an Pacific Northwest region. Get an in-depth look at these Burgundian and Bordeaux-style regions with all of the perks of being a member of The California Wine Club.

What We Love: The California Wine Club has an excellent reputation and they've been in business a long time. We like that it's a family business supporting other family businesses.

Could Be Better: We have very little we feel The California Wine Club could do to improve. The prices sometimes feel a bit high, but when you factor in all of the benefits of membership, including a satisfaction guarantee, we still feel like you get what you pay for here.
