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

    Limited Time Offer
    Shopping for Mom? Get a bonus bottle of 93pt Cabernet Sauvignon, a free artist-designed gift box, free gift bags, and a free printed gift notice on all gifts of 3 months or longer! Get this exclusive deal! Good through May 13.

    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!

    TastingRoom.com
    by Tasting Room by Lot18
    All-Around Rating:

    Limited Time Offer
    Get a $40 tasting kit for just $6.95 when you sign up today. No coupon needed.

    Overview: This is a 12-bottle case personalized wine club. The "tasting kit" experience is deceiving and should be ignored, because once you rate a case of wine from them, the wines come in at a pretty good value and generally in line with what you like in your wine. Overall this is a wine club which offers the most flexibility and convenience of any other... now they just need to get the initial experience straightened out.

    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 initial experience is a little rough. The wines offered in the $6.95 tasting kit are extreme tasting (this is likely the best way to identify the boundaries of your palate) but it leaves a not-so-great first impression. To make matters worse, they send out your first shipment of wine only 24 hours after you receive your tasting kit, which means your first case has nothing to do with preferences set by your tasting kit experience. After you rate your first set of wines, the selection improves dramatically and the wine become a good fit for your palate. This experience should be improved so that the first case that is shipped reflects the input from your tasting kit experience.

    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
    Buy More, Save More! Save $10 on any 4-shipment order with code SAVE10. Save $15 on any 6-shipment pre-paid order with code SAVE15. Save $25 on any 12-shipment pre-paid order with code SAVE25.

    Overview: The Bold Reds club features Interntaional red wines showcasing, yep, bigger and bolder flavors. More tannic and fruit forward, these are not your typical easy-drinking wines.

    What We Love: International Wine of the Month Club focuses heavily on a seamless gift-giving experience. This is so important when evaluating a monthly wine club gift.

    Could Be Better: We'd like to see them offer four-bottle subscriptions, and better reorder pricing for club members.

    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.

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


    Save 15% on Gifts with promo code GIFT15. Good until May 1, 2017.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Special Selections
    by Uncorked Ventures
    All-Around Rating:

    Limited Time Offer
    15% off all new wine club subscriptions and gifts. Use coupon code FIFTEEN at checkout.

    Overview: Uncorked Ventures focuses on California, Oregon, and Washington wines and delivers high-quality selections from small-production wineries. This is their mid-level club featuring ultra-premium wines from the smallest productions. When you're ready to discover some of the best wine available from U.S. producers and don't want to decide for yourself which wines are worth the money before you buy, try this wine club.

    What We Love: We're quite impressed with most of the past selections from Uncorked Ventures, especially as they include some of our favorite West Coast wine-growing regions.

    Could Be Better: We'd love to see more content on their website to talk about their wine-selection process, some of the awesome stories from the road, and even their monthly newsletter.
