Overview: The Bold Reds club features International red wines showcasing, yep, bigger and bolder flavors, that are more tannic and fruit forward. These are not your typical easy-drinking wines but they're perfect for pizza, grill nights, and all forms of meat.

What We Love: More than anything, we love surprise factor of these wines. Every time we open a box, we sort of grimace at the prospect of drinking a Rhone red or an Barolo (wines that we typically don't enjoy because of our own palate preferences), but we're always surprised at how the wines are enjoyable anyway, and usually much better than we were expecting.

Wine Club Gift Info: Wine club gifting is an area that this company excels at. They give you the most options of any two-bottle wine club, from when you pay for each shipment, to all of the standard customizations, gift notice options, etc. The first shipment of all gifts includes organza-wrapped bottles for an extra touch.

For You Join today and save $50 on the first shipment — New members only. Click for This Deal.

Overview: A personalized wine club that gets to know what kind of wine you like through a wine-preference quiz and the ratings you give for wines from previous shipments. Sends four bottles of wine that match your preferences, monthly.

What We Love: Bright Cellars has amazing customer service and offers a cheese-pairing option as an add-on. We've liked each shipment better than the last, and this corresponds to seeing our Bright Points (accuracy of matching) increase, too.

Overview: This is the happy medium of wine clubs they offer as you get one bottle from their entry-level subscription and one bottle from their premium membership. If you're doing your math as "average price paid per bottle" you might not love this club, but if you consider that you're getting one value-priced wine and one special-occasion wine in each shipment, it's a neat concept.

What We Love: Unlike some other wine clubs which focus on acquiring closeout wines to ship to their members, this wine club cares a great deal about coming up with consistent selections befitting their reputation of 25 years in the business. Their tasting panel includes proprietor Kris Calef, wine professionals, and everyday wine drinkers, so they excel at finding palate-friendly wines with wide appeal.

The Vintners Series

by Wine of the Month Club ®
All-Around Rating:

Exclusive Deal For Gifts Save 10% on any wine of the month club gift. Use code BESTWINE at checkout or Click for This Deal.

Overview: This is the mid-range membership from The Original Wine of the Month Club ™, offering generally well-made wines from well-known areas. At $15-20 a bottle, it's competitive with several other wine clubs on price, but they're more willing to push the envelope on lesser-known wine regions and grape varieties.

What We Love: Paul Kalemkiarian, second generation proprietor at Wine of the Month Club ™ goes out of his way to source interesting wines, and in this price point that can be a challenge, particularly in finding California wines. So he leans on an International selection to bring you better value in this price range.

Wine Club Gift Info: If you want to give a wine of the month club as a gift this year, but your budget is constrained, this is a good choice. You'll be giving four months for what most other clubs charge for three, and they offer a fun gift presentation, too.

Overview: Each shipment of this wine club includes a selection of wine from a single wine region. Sometimes that region is defined narrowly, like Southern France, and sometimes it’s more broad, like South America.

What We Love: This is a fun way to discover wine regions around the world in an affordable way. Vinesse’s wine tasting notes all include cellaring information, which we find lacking in most other subscriptions’ educational materials.

Pinot Noir Wine Club

by Vinesse
All-Around Rating:

Overview: We recently received several shipments from Vinesse, including the Pinot Noir club, and they've really stepped up their wine buying. If you're interested in more than just California Pinot Noir and you don't want to spend a ton of money on it, we really recommend this Pinot Noir 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: We strongly support all niche wine clubs. The taste of wine is subjective and we think everyone should drink what they love. Given the high delivery fees on this Pinot Noir subscription from Vinesse, we recommending joining the 12-bottle wine club and have the shipments sent as often as is appropriate.

Elevant Society Wine Club

by Vinesse
All-Around Rating:

Overview: The premium-level wine club from Vinesse where over the years we've seen the quality-to-price ratio go from incredible to disappointing and everywhere in between. If you want a wine of the month club that delivers better quality wines that you can't easily find, but want the protection of a rock-solid satisfaction guarantee, this is a good choice.

What We Love: We like that you can decide how much of this wine club you want in your household's wine mix. You can choose 2, 4, 6, 8, or 12 bottles per shipment, though the delivery choices of 5, 7, or 14 times a year are kind of odd. Like most wine clubs, we advocate for joining with the highest number of bottles at an appropropriate frequency to save on shipping costs — a big savings with Vinesse.

Rich Reds Wine Club

by WineExpress (Wine Enthusiast)
All-Around Rating:

Overview: From the wine sales partner for Wine Enthusiast magazine, this wine of the month club is a no-hassle way to try new red wine from around the world. The wine director at WineExpress, Josh Farrell, hand picks each wine for their subscriptions.

What We Love: WineExpress is the retail arm of Wine Enthusiast Magazine. Who better to select the best wines for a wine of the month club than a company that rates wine?

The California Series

Overview: From the original Wine of the Month Club (really, they're the first!) you get wine delivered every month at really low prices. The proprietor drives a hard bargain and passes those deals onto his customers. This California Series is like their mid-level wine club but it focuses only on California wine. It's perfect for people who aren't sure if they're "wine club people" and as a gift to a young wine-lover just starting to explore.

What We Love: Paul Kalemkiarian, second generation proprietor at Wine of the Month Club ™ goes out of his way to source interesting wines, and for this wine club, he only ships the best California wines he finds at this price point, after tasting hundreds each month of course.

Wine Club Gift Info: If you want to give a wine of the month club as a gift this year, but your budget is constrained, this is a good choice.
