From the wine sales partner for Wine Enthusiast magazine, this wine of the month club is a no-hassle way to try new red wine from around the world. The wine director at WineExpress, Josh Farrell, hand picks each wine for their subscriptions.
WineExpress is the retail arm of Wine Enthusiast Magazine. Who better to select the best wines for a wine of the month club than a company that rates wine?
It's been a long time since we received a shipment from WineExpress, but the last ones we received we felt sent out an uninspiring selection of wine (medium- to large-production and widely available) and were priced too close to retail to be considered a good deal. We'd like to see them include previously-shipped wines on their wine club pages.
Most wine clubs offer a red-wine only option, some wine clubs offer red wine clubs that only offer red wines to focus on better-quality red wines because there is a perception in the wine club industry that people prefer red wine to white wine. While we appreciate a good white wine as much as a good red wine, we understand that you may not. This red wine club offers you great value on three bottles a month to satisfy your red wine love affair.
Unlike the other wine clubs from publishing companies (NY Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Sunset Magazine, etc.) this wine club is owned by its publishing company (Wine Enthusiast Magazine). That changes all of the rules and expectations for this wine club... in the consumer’s favor.

At WineClubReviews.net we take an objective approach to our star ratings system. Our written reviews are very much subjective, based on our 10+ years of wine club review experience and our own ideas about what good wine and good value mean. The star ratings are based on 11 attributes that we feel define what a wine club should be. Here is how Firstleaf Wine Club stacks up on these traits.
