90 Point Rated Wine Club Review

WINE CLUB OVERVIEW & DETAILS

All-Around Wine Club Rating: 2.85

Summary

There are many wine clubs who feature 90 point wines (and 90+). While this designation might get you better quality wines, there's too much subjectivity in the ratings systems for this to be meaningful. If you're a Wine.com customer and you want to try their best wine club, this is it.

What We Like

Excellent selection of wines available to this wine club because of the breadth and depth of what Wine.com carries. Often delivers wines over 90 points.

Improvements

With so much great wine on the market, we feel the price on this club could be a lower, or for this price, upgrade the club an even better class of wine.

We’re a little confused by the price-point on this wine club. While we have no problem with a 90-Point Wine Club (love the idea, especially since it’s offering wines that really are 90+ points) and we don’t mind a wine club that charges $35 per bottle, we don’t fully understand why the two go together. There are seemingly thousands of 90-point wines out there that don’t cost more than $20 per bottle--even on their own website! We expect a big retailer (lots of volume equals greater purchasing power) to offer exceptional pricing to their subscription customers and we’re not seeing it here.

Generally we advocate joining wine clubs that offer you greater value than if you went to your local wine store so we have a hard time recommending this wine club in particular if you’re buying for yourself. BUT, because Wine.com has such a consistent wine selection process and excellent customer service, we do recommend this as a terrific wine gift if you have a friend or family-member who is a wine connoisseur.

Wine.com wine clubs have tools for gift-giving:

  • If you’re giving this wine club subscription as a last-minute gift, they have a template you can customize and print on your home computer so you have something to present to the recipient on the occasion you’re gifting.
  • Gift recipient email address (to send delivery notice, recommended since adult signature is required)
  • Add a printed gift message: add a free gift message for your gift card and email notice (240 characters). By entering a gift message, you indicate your order is a gift and we will withhold all price information from its contents.
