What to Expect from The California Wine Club

The California Wine Club is an old school wine of the month club, they long pre-date the subscription box services we've come to know and love. Their efforts are focused around delivering a couple of great bottles each month, rather than being your primary source for wine buying. Rather than asking you to do all the work, The California Wine Club puts a great deal of effort into sourcing some of California's best wines at the right price for each level of their wine club. You won't find these wines at your local store, and you may not even be able to buy them at a winery.

Why we recommend The California Wine Club

More than most wine of the month clubs we've reviewed, The California Wine Club really wants to please folks who love California wine, but they also want to be a source of wines from other places for their loyal customers. Three of their five wine clubs only feature California wine (the fourth club is an International series which introduces you to other wine regions you might love and the fifth club is the Pacific Northwest Series featuring wines from Washington and Oregon, too).

The California Wine Club Ratings

To get our wine club ratings, we look at 10 characteristics of each wine club. Some of these apply to the company as a whole, so we've included them here.

Satisfaction Guarantee -

Note: This rating is our objective analysis of The California Wine Club's satisfaction guarantee—not our assessment of whether or not you’re guaranteed to be satisfied with their wines.

The California Wine Club offers a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. They'll refund you for any wines you don't love. That said, we'd be genuinely surprised and concerned if you receive a poor selection from The California Wine Club.

Their “Love It” Guarantee: “What if I don't like the wine? Although wine tastes vary from person to person, our wines are guaranteed. If you get a bad bottle, we will immediately reship a replacement or refund your money!”

Customer Service Record -

In 9+ years of working with The California Wine Club we have never had a single customer complaint. It could be because they pride themselves on the best customer service. In addition to their Satisfaction Guarantee, they have staff wine consultants whose job it is to help you find wine you love and wineries to visit when you go to wine country.

Wine Education -

Premier Series Featured Winery Peltier October 2019 International Series Featured Winery Chateau d’Agel Holiday 2019 PNW Series Featured Winery Gard Holiday 2019 Signature Series Featured Wineries Holidays 2019 Aged Cab Series Featured Wineries Holidays 2019

The California Wine Club sends out the prettiest assortment of wine info (a full-color magazine called Uncorked) with each shipment of The Premier Series. It contains tasting notes about each wine, the wineries they come from, the winemakers, and the wine region.

Convenience -

The California Wine Club is a more old-fashioned company. If you need to hold your service for a vacation or want to cancel your membership you'll need to call and speak to someone during regular business hours. You can handle reorders yourself online, as well as see a record of the wines you've received and when you received them.

The California Wine Club Gifts

Gift Presentation from The California Wine Club

New Gift Announcement Package, called Gift+, introduced in 2018

Unless you're buying for a very adventurous wine-lover, this is among the best wine club gifts on the market. For wine drinkers of any level and any preference, it would be hard to not make a great impression with a Premier Series gift. We’re big fans of The California Wine Club gifts.

They offer prepaid gift subscriptions which makes gifting a breeze. Choose 1-12 shipments. The more you buy, the more you save.

The California Wine Club has a new gift announcement option to improve your gift-giving. For an additional $18 you can have this delightful package mailed to you so you can present it in person, or you can have it mailed directly to your gift recipient in advance of the first wine shipment. The package comes gift-wrapped and custom-printed with the recipient's name and what you've ordered, along with a deluxe corkscrew and bottle stopper.

When Quality Matters

Trust The California Wine Club to impress your clients with authentic artisan wines.


"For 30 years The California Wine Club has been delighting recipients with award-winning, small-batch wines from real, working wineries along with providing concierge-level service.

Stay top-of-mind with your best business contacts by giving a memorable gift of two delicious artisan wines and Uncorked (a guide to the featured winery). Plus choose from four gift package branding options.

With five monthly wine club levels to choose from, there is a wine club gift to suit every palate." — The California Wine Club
