Great value on many different types of wines from around the world and a great introductory offer.
While their offering is similar to some well-known wine clubs, they have a different selection and a better quarterly price!
Some of the selections left us a little flat. We were especially disappointed with the European reds.
In general, this club provides very good value. They have an excellent introductory offer (just $69.95 plus $19.95 shipping for 12 bottles of wine!). Introductory offers often imply the club believes you'll like the wine because they expect you'll continue your membership. Free gifts are always great, too!
We also like this club because it is a quarterly case club instead of a monthly club. This cuts down on the amount of money you spend on shipping overall and is better for the environment because less trips are being made to deliver wine to you.
Lastly, we like the "About Us" section of the Barclay's Wine website which talks about how the guys who run it just love wine and think they've got the greatest job ever because they travel the world tasting wines and sharing their love of wine with as many people as possible through their wine club. Other clubs talk about their experts and their pedigrees, but we like this club's passion!
