    "Experienced Wine Drinkers" Rating:

    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.

    "Experienced Wine Drinkers" Rating:

    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 premium 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.

    "Experienced Wine Drinkers" Rating:

    Overview: For the wine connoisseur with a penchant for California wines, this wine of the month club is a sure thing. One of our most favorite wine clubs, the boutique gems delivered by The California Wine Club are ready to drink or can be cellared, but the real reason to join is the benefit of being a member of The California Wine Club — best-in-class customer service with your own personal wine consultant, a top-tier satisfaction guarantee, and discounts on reorders of your favorites (if they're still available).

    What We Love: They reward volume purchasing! If you can afford it, by upgrading to the 4-bottle per shipment program you can save up to $13 per bottle.

    Could Be Better: We have very little we feel The California Wine Club could do to improve. The prices sometimes feel a bit high, but when you factor in all of the benefits of membership, including a satisfaction guarantee, we still feel like you get what you pay for here.

    WineClubReviews Exclusive! Save 50% on your first shipment when enrolling in an ongoing subscription of the Aged Cabernet Series. Use coupon code WCRHALF.

    "Experienced Wine Drinkers" Rating:

    Overview: This wine club is perfect for Cabernet lovers who lack the patience to cellar wines, or for those who have come to love Cabernet Sauvignon more recently. Each shipment contains perfectly-cellared boutique California Cabernet Sauvignon that's ready to drink now.

    What We Love: We like that they bring you a variety of aged Cabernets, at different levels of quality from exceptional to rarified. While your monthly shipment price will vary, so will the different terroirs and winemaker expression of the king of all varietals.

    Could Be Better: We have very little we feel The California Wine Club could do to improve. The prices sometimes feel a bit high, but when you factor in all of the benefits of membership, including a satisfaction guarantee, we still feel like you get what you pay for here.

    "Experienced Wine Drinkers" Rating:

    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 red wine club, too. Get preferred pricing on all of their new releases and enjoy helping stellar winemakers stretch their winemaking creativity.

    "Experienced Wine Drinkers" Rating:

    Overview: Every wine they ship is rated 89 points or better by one of three trusted critics (Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, Wine Spectator, and Antonio Galloni's Vinous Media). When you want critically-rated wines with a satisfaction guarantee, this is your go-to wine club.

    What We Love: Their "Best Price" program ensures they've priced their wines at the best price on the Internet by using Wine-Searcher.com Pro to check all available prices (they check when they add the wine to their site).

    Could Be Better: They're new and this is somewhere in the pipeline, but we'd like to see pre-paid gift subscriptions as well as options for bi-monthly and quarterly deliveries, too.

    by The California Wine Club

    "Experienced Wine Drinkers" Rating:

    Overview: Among all of the case clubs (12 bottles, typically shipped quarterly), this one of the two best deals. The other club delivers wine from around the world, but this club sends boutique California wine and is marked way down because you're buying in volume.

    What We Love: We asked The California Wine Club for a case club deal and they made one! And now you get to save a TON of money on their already affordable Premier Series wines.

    Could Be Better: Normally we'd ask for a deal for this club, but it's already priced as low as it can go, so it's perfect as is!

    by Wired For Wine ®

    "Experienced Wine Drinkers" Rating:

    Overview: Among all of the case clubs (12 bottles, typically shipped quarterly), this is among the best two deals. The other focuses only on California wine, but this one takes you on a journey around the world. Enjoy eclectic wines at the best prices you'll find.

    What We Love: It's so easy to get into a wine rut and stick with what you know... but then you're bored. Wired For Wine ® helps you break out of that rut in a low-cost, satisfaction guaranteed way so you can find new wines to love. Also, when compared with similarly-priced case clubs, this one stands out for wine quality in a big way.

    Could Be Better: Normally we'd ask for a deal for this club, but it's already priced as low as it can go, so it's nearly perfect as is! We'd love to see a little bit of customization available and also monthly clubs for people who drink more than a bottle a week.

    Limited Time Offer
    Save $10 on any order with promo code NEWMEMBER.


    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!

    "Experienced Wine Drinkers" Rating:

    Overview: If you love Sauvignon Blanc, there aren't many wine clubs geared just for you. We love Sauv Blanc but there are so many interesting alternatives that there's no reason to limit ourselves. This club features one Sauvignon Blanc and one similarly-styled white 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: 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.
