Monthly wine clubs with delivery to MD. These wine of the month clubs will ship wine to Maryland
The shipping laws in the United States are complicated if you're trying to send a gift of wine. Wineries hate it as much as you do, but there are workarounds. If you live in a state where shipping is free-and-clear, yay for you! If you need to ship wine somewhere with stricter laws though, you need this page to help you shop. These wine of the month clubs will ship wine to Maryland. Please send your legal inquiries to the companies directly.
Overview: Grapeseed Wine started out as a way to have customers help fund one-time wine productions by acclaimed winemakers, but now it's a wine club, too. Get preferred pricing on all of their new releases and enjoy helping stellar winemakers stretch their winemaking creativity.
What We Love: We're big fans of any group that has exclusive wines because they produced them (as opposed to buying out a full production of someone else's wine)
Could Be Better: We'd like to see more options available, particularly for gifting, but also for delivery frequency. We're looking forward to the next release of Grapeseed wines to augment the selection.
Overview: One of our favorite International wine clubs and one of our favorite Vinesse wine clubs, too. Each shipment contains six wines which introduce you to a new wine region — there are many clubs that do this, but not with six bottles and helpful tasting notes that tell you when it's time to drink your adventures in a bottle. A really fun wine club!
What We Love: Consistent quality and excellent "discovery" club enhances your wine knowledge and expands your palate.
Could Be Better: We'd love it customers were rewarded for ordering the bigger shipments. "Buy more save more" would be great!
Overview: We already go weak in the knees for a great champagne, but the shipment we received has us wishing the next shipment would get here sooner. A mouth-watering way to explore the region of Champagne, particularly from boutique grower houses that rarely export to the United States.
What We Love: A delightful and decadent way to treat yourself (or pamper a lucky gift recipient), Henri's Reserve is a playful yet sophisticated true Champagne Club, featuring top-notch small producers.
Could Be Better: It would be the best Champagne Club ever if they really stepped up the rewards of membership. We've been told they're working on it.
Overview: Sometimes you just want a bottle of wine, some cheese and salami, and some crackers to tie all together and wind down a long work week. Enter the Wine Down Box (you see what they did there?) and add a little classy fun to your Friday nights — or someone else's as this makes a great gift!
What We Love: The wines have been excellent, and the pairings with the cheeses have been spot on. For how much hype there is around wine-and-cheese pairings in general, it's actually not that easy to pull off. And of course, we're suckers for salami.
Could Be Better: We're actually not fans of the crackers that come with this box. They're difficult to put a piece of salami and/or cheese on top of, so they're relegated to nibbling between bites of the other stuff. This is NOT a reason to avoid this otherwise awesome wine and cheese club.
Overview: Sometimes you want bubbly, sometimes you want rosé, and with this club you can get both. There aren't many sparkling wine clubs and this is the only wine club we know of that promises rosé in every shipment.
What We Love: A very female-focused brand. The wine industry is dominated by men and men predominantly start companies... this is a business that from the ground up is thinking about how women want to interact with their wine clubs. Which is great, because women represent 70% of buyers in the U.S.
Could Be Better: As wine clubs go, the options are pretty limited. They only offer monthly shipments and 2-bottle packages.
Overview: Wine tasting is a most beloved pastime, particularly among wine enthusiasts, and casual wine drinkers, too. With good reason! Why drink only one kind of wine when you can sample three different kinds? This wine club brings the wine tasting flight experience to your home at an affordable monthly price — and the wines are interesting!
What We Love: The wines have been excellent and unusual. The International selection is really discovery-oriented and we really dig the packaging — especially those impressive glass vials.
Could Be Better: They've already done the two things we wished for most — give you a discount when you order two boxes a month and offer full-size bottles of your favorite wines in their wine shop (you must be a logged-in customer to access this feature).
Overview: One of our favorite wine of the month clubs from Vinesse, this Light & Sweet club is the perfect choice for so many wine drinkers in America who prefer fruity and sweeter wines to drier styles. If you are someone, or know someone, who loves wines like Moscato, Riesling and Gewurtztraminer, sign up for this wine club because it's the only one like it out there in the wine club universe.
What We Love: We strongly support all niche wine clubs. The taste of wine is subjective and we think everyone should drink what they love.
Could Be Better: We'd love to see customers rewarded for buying bigger allotments. "Buy more save more" would be great!
Overview: Whether you choose just the wine or you upgrade to include the regional gourmet treats with the Adventure Package, this quarterly wine club will take you on your own wine-drinking adventure around the world. Extensive regional and winery information goes out with each shipment, chock full of photos that help you feel like you're not really at home, but in a far away wine region.
What We Love: It's hard to compare a wine club that includes extra goodies to one that doesn't, because come on, most wine lovers love food, too! The fact that you can't get these wines from any other company in the U.S. doesn't hurt either.
Could Be Better: We don't have any suggestions for what to improve within the International Series wine club. Yay!
Overview: This is the premium-level wine club offered by International Wine of the Month Club. It features interesting estate wines from regions in France, Italy, South America, and beyond.
What We Love: Great flexibility in billing and shipping, and customization paired with easy gift-giving make this wine club a great choice for the wine lovers in your world.
Could Be Better: We'd love to see four-bottle shipments offered by this wine club.
Overview: This is a 12-bottle personalized wine club. The personalization starts with the "tasting kit" but is really most impacted by the ratings you provide to wines you receive as full-size bottles. At $14/bottle, this is a convenient way to get your everyday wine delivered.
What We Love: Their best feature is total control of your account online without having to contact customer service — change the contents of your shipment, change your shipment size, have your next shipment sent exactly when you want it, or even cancel online.
Could Be Better: The wines offered in the $6.95 tasting kit have extreme profiles (likely the best way to identify the boundaries of your palate) but the experience is fun anyway. It's important to note: rating the wine triggers the first full-price case to be shipped.
