Premier Wine Club Review

Premier Wine Club

From: $40.45 per shipment
This wine subscription focuses on high-quality and value-priced wines from small family wineries in California, and is perfect to give as a gift or to join yourself. Even though California wine is legendary, most of us can't afford legendary wine prices. The California Wine Club's "Love it" Guarantee means you'll love your wine or they'll send you something else at no additional cost.

Deals & Coupon Codes

Giving a Gift? Give a Premier Series Gift of 3 months or longer and they'll get a free bottle of bubbly in their first shipment (worth $120). Until Sep 30.

Signature Series Wine Club Review

Signature Series Wine Club

From: $122 per shipment
This wine club, one of our favorites, features hard-to-access, ultra-premium, mostly red wine, from California's boutique family wineries. An important thing to note: not all bottles shipped in this club have the same general cost. Instead of getting two $75 bottles, you might get a $140 and a $35 bottle. No matter how much it retails for, you'll always get interesting wine from the Siganture Series.

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 11 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 recive a poor selection from The California Wine Club.

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 8+ years of working with The California Wine Club we have never had a single customer complaint. That's amazing to us. Our usual Internet sleuthing failed to turn up any customer complaints. Kudos to them!

Wine Education -

Wine Education for the Aged Cabernet Series - 1
Wine Education for the Aged Cabernet Series - 2
Wine Education for the Aged Cabernet Series - 3

The California Wine Club sends out the prettiest assortment of wine info (called Uncorked) with each shipment of all of their wine clubs. It contains tasting notes about each wine, the wineries they come from, the winemakers, and the wine region. They also go all-in on food pairing recipes and members-only deals like $1 shipping on case reorders. Uncorked is a great place to learn about the featured wines from other California Wine Clubs, too — and even order them with your member discount!

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.
