Wine Clubs—Under $50 Per Shipment

Use our wine club ratings to find the best wine clubs where shipments cost less than $50

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 $50 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.

Curated Wine Club
by Plonk Wine Club
All-Around Rating:

Limited Time Offer
Valentine's Day Special! Save $10 on any order with promo code VDAY2017. Valid until Feb 28. Bonus: Get a FREE double-hinged corkscrew with your first shipment. If you've never used one, you'll see why it's the best way to open a bottle of wine!

Overview: Tired of ho-hum wines but not sure where to start? Try this wine club! The Plonk wine clubs have always been among our favorites because of the proprietor's preference for quirky but delectable wines made from grapes and regions you've never heard of (and some you have). Whether you choose two, four, or twelve bottles you'll be glad you picked Plonk. Also, if you're thinking of going red-only or white-only, you'll actually get (two or four) different selections.

What We Love: This is a truly unique wine club with a bonus bottle on sign-up and a focus on Natural Wine (organic/biodynamic) that travels the world hunting for your next wine deal.

Could Be Better: Nothing. We're pretty stoked about these guys.

Gold Series Club

All-Around Rating:

Limited Time Offer
Buy more, save more! Buy 6 months or more and save 5%. Buy 12 months and save 10%. Upgrade to 4 bottles to save another 10% on any number of shipments!

Overview: California is home to some of the world's best wine regions and wineries, many of which are boutique wineries (wine jargon for small wineries with little-to-no distribution). This wine of the month club is a great way to get introduced to what California wine has to offer at reasonable prices. This wine club makes an excellent gift.

What We Love: Consistency. We've been receiving their shipments for months and we've never had a wine we didn't like. You can't really ask for more than that from a wine club.

Could Be Better: We don't have any suggestions for what to improve within the Gold Series wine club. Yay!

All-Around Rating:

Limited Time Offer
Buying a gift? Get a free bottle of bubbly in their first shipment. Good until Feb 28.


Buying for yourself? Choose a free bottle of wine or instant savings when you become a member by Feb 28. If you're buying the $45 subscription, use the $10 off link (22%). If you're buying the $75 subscription, use the save 20% on your first shipment link ($15).

Overview: Among other "journey around the wine world" clubs, Wine Awesomness stands out for exceptional educational materials. This is a great wine club for you if you're not sure yet if you're a "wine club" person or if you're looking to give a gift to a young wine-lover who's just starting to discover the world of wine.

What We Love: The level of sophistication in both design and writing of their monthly magazine and how the wine isn't expensive but is a very good value.

Could Be Better: So many people love to give wine subscriptions as gifts, and we think a gift packaging option and customizable gift notifications would add to the subscription gift option.

Purchase until Dec. 20th at 12pm PST to get guaranteed Christmas Eve delivery for just $9. Use coupon code 2DAY9 at checkout.

Overview: From the original Wine of the Month Club (really, they're the first!) you get wine delivered every month at surprisingly low prices. The proprietor drives a hard bargain and passes those deals onto his customers. The Vintner's Series is their mid-level wine club and is priced more like an entry-level club. It's a nice choice when you're looking for "better" wines but still pinching your pennies. It also makes a really nice gift.

What We Love: We love that Paul streams his wine-tasting sessions live over the Internet so we can see what he's tasting and how much he's rejected.

Could Be Better: No recommendations for improvement here. This wine club sets the bar high as a standard for all other wine clubs.

What We Love: Unprecedentedly fantastic flexibility in billing, shipping, customization, and what type of goodies to get.

Could Be Better: The wine club? It's great. The website? A little hard to use. If you're heading over there, please be patient. The effort is worth it!

Overview: This is the mid-level wine club offered by Monthly Clubs and it features interesting selections from regions in France, Italy, South America, Australia, and more. Instead of focusing on mid-range pricing, this club offers one selection from their entry-level wine club and one selection from their premium-level wine club in each shipment. Don't worry, their educational materials tell you which is which. It's a nice way to have a daily drinker and a special occasion wine on hand each month.

What We Love: Unprecedentedly fantastic flexibility in billing, shipping, customization, and what type of goodies to get.

Kosher Discovery Club
by KosherWine.com
All-Around Rating:

Overview: For most people, shopping for kosher wine is a challenge, as few stores in America carry a decent selection. KosherWine.com is like Wine.com for Jews who keep kosher but still like to drink wine (in Yiddish we call the ones who get drunk shikkers). And, for those who want the convenience of a wine of the month club, this is perfect way to get that kosher wine delivered.

What We Love: We're happy to see them offering both ongoing subscriptions and pre-paid gift subscriptions, as well as discounts on reorders.

Could Be Better: Like many other wine clubs, we'd like the to tell us which wines they've sent in recent shipments so we can be sure we're getting good value for our wine budget.

What We Love: There people who have been members of this wine club for over 20 years! The average wine club's membership length is 4 months.

Could Be Better: We'd love to see the normal red-and-white mix offered, as well as a whites-only California wine club. There are some KILLER white wines coming out of California at great value.
