What to Expect from International Wine of the Month Club
On the surface, this club seems like any other 2-bottle a month wine club subscription, and that's too
bad because it's really not. We've been receiving their wines for years now and while some of
the selections are common among the other wine clubs, they do a great job of selecting special International,
and especially Italian, wines. We've liked nearly every wine we've ever received from them
(with one notable exception) — we look forward to their deliveries each month and find them to be delivering value.
Why we recommend International Wine of the Month Club
They have a two-tiered tasting panel consisting of up to 30 tasters and is comprised of wine enthusiasts who run the
gamut from industry professionals, to serious amateur collectors, to casual wine lovers. In this way, the diversity
of preference, experience, taste, and style that exists within their club membership is correspondingly represented
in the wine selection process. Only those wines that are most highly regarded by the panel, generating an affirmative
consensus among the members, become featured in the club.

Customer Service Record
In more than five years of working with International Wine of the Month Club we have never had a single customer complaint. Our usual Internet sleuthing failed to turn up any significant customer complaints. Kudos to them!
Cellar Notes, the International Wine of the Month Club publication that goes out with their wine club, is chock full of information about the winemaker, and a little light on info about the wine. Much attention is paid to accompaniments (i.e. food) and promoting their other products. We'd like a little more information on the wine region. Something we LOVE about this wine club is that they publish every single issue online, including all of the information found in the printed inserts.
Design Your Own Gift
International Wine of the Month Club is a part of a larger gift service called Monthly Clubs. A standout opportunity from Monthly Clubs is their Design Your Own Club feature. In addition to being a wine club they're also a Beer of the Month Club, Chocolate of the Month Club, Cigar of the Month Club, Flower of the Month Club, and Cheese of the Month Club. Not only do they offer all of these other clubs, you can mix and match to create your own special gift. Choose a different type of product each month, alternate products, whatever you want to do.
