The California Wine Club Review

The California Wine Club offers 6 different wine clubs

  1. Aged Cabernet Series
    This wine subscription focuses on high-end, small-production Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon that was perfectly cellared while it earned the status of Aged. All of these Cabs, from small family wineries in Napa, are ready to drink when they arrive. It is perfect to give as a gift or to join yourself. Past shipments have included both three-bottle horizontals and three-bottle verticals — a truly unique wine experience (more on this in the review).
  2. International Selections
    This wine subscription focuses on high-end, limited-production wines from small family wineries outside the US. It is perfect to give as a gift or to join yourself.
  3. California Premier Club
    This wine subscription focuses on good-quality, well-priced wines from small family wineries in California. It is perfect to give as a gift or to join yourself.
  4. High-End California Club
    This wine subscription focuses on high-end, small-production wines from small family wineries in California. It is perfect to give as a gift or to join yourself.
  5. Pacific Northwest Club
    This wine subscription focuses on high-end, limited-production wines from small family wineries in the broad wine region called Pacific Northwest. It includes Oregon and Washington and is perfect to give as a gift or to join yourself.
  6. Case Club
    Among all of the case clubs (12 bottles, typically shipped quarterly), this California wine club offering selections from boutique wineries is one of the two best deals. The other club delivers 90+ point wine from around the world.

Case Club Review

Please note: We have not received a shipment of the Case Club. Our review is based on our experience with having received shipments from all of the contributing wine clubs.

There is much to love about The California Wine Club, not the least of which is their devotion to California's small family wineries, where some of the best value and most interesting American wines come from. The value in this Case Club is another thing to love.

The California Wine Club Case Club is 12 bottles of (mostly) California wine from family wineries delivered monthly, every other month, or quarterly. Each shipment contains 3 bottles of 4 different wines and you can choose to receive Red Wine, White Wine, or a mix of both.

The wines in the Case Club are selection, primarily consists of wines from The California Wine Club's Premier Series (normally $20 a bottle), but also sometimes include International Series (normally $35 a bottle), Pacific Northwest Series (normally $35 a bottle), and even their premium Signature Series (normally $65 a bottle). We hear members love these surprise bottles (we're not surprised).

Please note: We have not received a shipment of the Case Club. Our review is based on our experience with having received shipments from all of the contributing wine clubs.

12 bottles seem like a lot?

Think of it this way...
