Use our wine club ratings to find the best wine clubs where shipments cost less than $30
There are so many wine clubs available today that choosing a monthly wine membership may seem overwhelming. That's why we're here! This curated list of wine clubs features wines that cost less than $30 per shipment. Our ratings system looks at quality-to-price ratio, shipping costs, uniqueness, and custom features. Wherever possible, prices include shipping costs, but rarely include sales tax. Be sure to select the state you're shipping to, as not all wine clubs can ship to all states.
Overview: From the wine sales partner for Wine Enthusiast magazine, this wine of the month club is perfect for a wine-lover on a budget who wants a no-hassle way to get new wines shipped to them. The wines are of medium quality and are priced fairly, but not generously.
What We Love: 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?
Could Be Better: We'd like to see some updated "Previous Selections" on each of the wine clubs. The ones listed are a little out of date.
Overview: This wine of the month club is geared toward less-experienced wine drinkers and those who just want the convenience of having value-oriented wines delivered. If you're a loyal Wine.com customer, this is a great way to skip the checkout process and just get their value selections shipped.
What We Love: Great breadth and depth of wine selections presented in this wine club. You'll go around the world in your living room.
Could Be Better: For this type of club, and at this price-point, we think this club is an excellent choice and doesn't have any serious shortcomings.
Overview: Winc (formerly known as Club W) set out to change the wine industry and for their customers, they've achieved it. By delivering unprecedented value at $13 a bottle and personalized selections geared for every palate, Winc is a standout wine of the month club. If you're ready for more sophisticated wines, you can upgrade to Winc Select. Either way, you can save even more money by participating in their myriad rewards programs.
What We Love: We love how they go above and beyond to reward loyal customers with substantial savings and invitations to a premium level program. No other wine club offers this level of loyalty rewards, or this much fun!
Could Be Better: Winc works so hard to make their service great that it's hard for us to think of something they should do to make it even better.
Overview: It's easy to get attached to the king of grapes, Cabernet Sauvignon, but there are so many interesting alternatives that there's no reason to limit yourself. This club features one Cab and one similarly-styled red wine each month. Expect high quality selections that surprise you, and enjoy the discovery adventure of a doppelganger.
What We Love: Plonk took their winning model for finding and delivering interesting wines at exceptional value, and then figured out how to make it even better with a mix of familiar and adventure in every box.
Could Be Better: We'd love to see a buy-more-save-more option and even a 4-bottle version for customers who just can't get enough of their killer curation.
Overview: Club W is now Winc Wine! Everything we said about Club W is still true and applies to Winc, except Winc is even better because they keep finding ways to improve it. Personalized selection every month (including picking your own wines), great value because they've eliminated the middle man, lots of rewards for loyal customers.
What We Love: We love the great selection of quirky wines all priced at $13 or $19, and are especially impressed with the whites and roses. We love that you can put as many wines in your box as you want, and that shipping is free on 6 or more bottles.
Could Be Better: The wine descriptions tend to purposely avoid helpful terms that experienced wine drinkers look for in selecting bottles (i.e., no references to "buttery" or "acidic").
Overview: If you or some you know loves California wine, this is the perfect wine club to join (or send as a gift). Each month you'll get two bottles of hand-picked wines from some of California's best boutique wineries (small production wineries that usually don't have widespread distribution). You'll discover the hidden corners of California's wine country and enjoy gems from prominent regions, too.
What We Love: When it comes to places to find deals on wine, we often look to The California Wine Club. Not only do they start with great prices on their Premier Series wines, but they also have fantastic discounts after the shipments have gone out.
Could Be Better: The California Wine Club now regularly offers introductory discounts, and that makes this wine club a better value while still delivering fantastic quality. It's now as perfect as it's going to be!
Overview: Dessert wine is divine when done properly. With a delicate balance of sugar and acid, this is the only type of wine you can drink with sugary confections. This is a rare wine club and highly recommended for sweet wine lovers. inClub is a totally customizable wine club where you choose everything or let them choose for you. The best part? If you change your mind later, they have every kind of wine you can think of and you can completely customize your shipments.
What We Love: No other wine club has ever, and probably will ever, deliver this level of customization. You want it? You got it. It's perfect for any oenophile.
Could Be Better: We'd love to see Invino extend the inClub value even further by offering a case club.
Add this terrific introduction to wine to your gift.
