Join a Red wine of the month club
This is a curated list of Red wine subscription gifts. 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: 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: 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!
Overview: Wine tasting is a most beloved pastime, particularly among wine enthusiasts, and casual wine drinkers, too. With good reason! Why drink only one kind of wine when you can sample three different kinds? This wine club brings the wine tasting flight experience to your home at an affordable monthly price — and the wines are interesting!
What We Love: The wines have been excellent and unusual. The International selection is really discovery-oriented and we really dig the packaging — especially those impressive glass vials.
Could Be Better: They've already done the two things we wished for most — give you a discount when you order two boxes a month and offer full-size bottles of your favorite wines in their wine shop (you must be a logged-in customer to access this feature).
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: A six or 12-bottle wine subscription geared toward occasional drinkers who don't want to spend a lot on their wine. An International selection with a good variety of wines and wine regions.
What We Love: There isn't anything Martha Stewart does that isn't beautiful, and the branding and experience of this wine subscription program are no exception to that rule.
Could Be Better: While we really enjoyed the white wines we received, the reds left much to be desired.
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: This wine club is perfect for Cabernet lovers who lack the patience to cellar wines, or for those who have come to love Cabernet Sauvignon more recently. Each shipment contains perfectly-cellared boutique California Cabernet Sauvignon that's ready to drink now.
What We Love: We like that they bring you a variety of aged Cabernets, at different levels of quality from exceptional to rarified. While your monthly shipment price will vary, so will the different terroirs and winemaker expression of the king of all varietals.
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.
Overview: Among all of the case clubs (12 bottles, typically shipped quarterly), this one of the two best deals. The other club delivers wine from around the world, but this club sends boutique California wine 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: Among all of the case clubs (12 bottles, typically shipped quarterly), this is among the best two deals. The other focuses only on California wine, but this one takes you on a journey around the world. Enjoy eclectic wines at the best prices you'll find.
What We Love: It's so easy to get into a wine rut and stick with what you know... but then you're bored. Wired For Wine ® helps you break out of that rut in a low-cost, satisfaction guaranteed way so you can find new wines to love. Also, when compared with similarly-priced case clubs, this one stands out for wine quality in a big way.
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 nearly perfect as is! We'd love to see a little bit of customization available and also monthly clubs for people who drink more than a bottle a week.
