From the original Wine of the Month Club (really, they're the first!) you get wine delivered every month at really low prices. The proprietor drives a hard bargain and passes those deals onto his customers. This California Series is like their mid-level wine club but it focuses only on California wine. It's perfect for people who aren't sure if they're "wine club people" and as a gift to a young wine-lover just starting to explore.
Paul Kalemkiarian, second generation proprietor at Wine of the Month Club ™ goes out of his way to source interesting wines, and for this wine club, he only ships the best California wines he finds at this price point, after tasting hundreds each month of course.
We're not sure why, but unlike the other wine clubs from The Original Wine of the Month Club, they don't list the past California Wine Club shipments on their website, and we wish they would!
The California Series membership costs $29.96 for 2 bottles of wine. Shipping costs extra and is $20.00 per shipment plus sales tax where applicable. The price per bottle, with shipping, ranges from $22.79 to $24.98 depending on how you configure your membership.
Shipments are sent monthly, bimonthly, or quarterly.
There is no other wine club that we know of that works harder to deliver value to its customers than the Wine of the Month Club ®. Every aspect of their business is optimized to pass savings onto their customers, from shipping costs to the price paid for each case of wine they order, to their operations and facilities... it’s all driving value.
To help meet the demand of so many loyal subscribers, for whom California wines were their favorites from all around the world, Wine of the Month Club ® has put together this California wine clubs. It typically features a mix of wines from the Classic Series and Vintners Series, making this price-point a great deal for California wine lovers.
Even more value! When you subscribe to a Wine of the Month Club ®, you’ll also get access to members-only pricing on everything they carry in their Wine Shoppe.
