Best Wine Clubs

  Over the years we've reviewed hundreds of different wine of the month clubs and found the following wine clubs to be the best in regards to wine quality, pricing, customer service and delivery / packing. We're currently testing and reviewing several new wine of the month clubs and will add them if they pass our tests. Rest assured, even though we are remunerated when you sign up with one of these wine clubs, we will never recommend a wine club that doesn't pass our stringent testing. After all, our goal is to ensure you only work with the best wine clubs available.

California Wine Club

Overall Rating: 5 Stars Phenomenal
The California Wine Club finally earned our #1 Best Wine Club rating this year thanks to their 20+ year track record of delivering award-winning wines from small mom and pop wineries from around California. With 5 wine clubs to choose from, you're sure to find a wine club that best suits your tastes. All of the wines I've received from them throughout the years, I would consider 90+ point wines. With amazing customer service, no membership fees and a 100% quality guarantee, it's no wonder the California Wine Club is the #1 best wine club!

Wine Quality: 5 Stars Phenomenal
The California Wine Clubs quality is bar none the best there is. The owners of the California Wine Club, Bruce & Pam Boring, spend their days travelling throughout California to find you the best the state has to offer. They've been doing it for 20+ years now and it shows in the quality of the wines you receive. These are award winning wines that you just can't find at Trader Joes or your grocery store!

Wine Education: 5 Stars Phenomenal
Some wine clubs go cheap on the education; not so with the California Wine Club! Every shipment comes with a 12-page, full color publication called Uncorked that offers an up-close and personal look at the winery that produced the wines you received this month, in addition to tasting notes, recipes, interviews and more.

Pricing: 5 Stars Phenomenal
Starting at just $17.97 a bottle, the California Wine Club is very well priced for award winning wines. Our favorite club is the California Wine Club Signature Series which is their 90+ point wine club that costs $75 a bottle / $150 per shipment. If you've got the money, this is by far the best California wine club there is.

Gold Medal Wine Club VISIT SITE
 

Gold Medal Wine Club

Overall Rating: 4 Stars Excellent
The Gold Medal Wine Club ranked #3 this year on our Top 10 Best Wine Clubs list for their numerous wine club options (5 in total) and 20 years of wine club experience (over 2 million shipments) that makes them one of America's leading independent wine club. Their 5 great wine clubs are as follows: Gold Medal-Winning California Wines, Pinot Noir, International, Platinum (90+ point wines) & Diamond (93+ point wines)
Wine Quality: 5 Stars Phenomenal
The wine from their Platinum and Diamond wine clubs are truly amazing tasting wines; most of which are rare finds that are hard to get. These wines are 90+ and 93+ point wines and worth every penny. They also have an international wine club and Pinot Noir wine club that's worth mentioning too. Their most popular wine club though is their Gold Wine Club which is made up of medal-winning wines from California's best small wineries.

Wine Education: 4 Stars Excellent
With every monthly or quarterly wine club shipment (you choose the frequency), you'll receive a detailed fact sheet on the wines you've received, the winery it came from and what specific element enabled the wine to earn the right to be included in the Gold Medal Wine Club monthly shipment.

Pricing: 4.5 Stars Outstanding
The Gold Medal Wine Club has 5 wine clubs to choose from that range in price from $17.50 a bottle to $94.50 a bottle and believe me when I say the $94.50 a bottle wine club (the Diamond Series Wine Club) is an astonishing walk down some of the hardest to find wines there are. You could keep these wines as investments, but they are oh so delicious and worth enjoying a bottle on special occasions.

The owners, Matt Krause and Mark Aselstine, personally try each and every wine they consider for their wine club, and then only send you the ones that truly made the grade.

Wall Street Journal Wine Club VISIT SITE
 

The Wall Street Journal Wine Club

wall street journal wine club guarantee

Overall Rating: 4 Stars Excellent
For the 5th year in a row, the WSJ Wine Club has remained in our prestigious Top 10 Best Wine Clubs rating for their high quality wines, great customer service and special packing techniques that ensured every bottle we received, every time, arrived safely. They offer the lowest prices and, in our humble opinion, some of the best wines available.

Wine Quality: 4 Stars Excellent
While the quality of wines that you'll receive from the WSJ Wine Club is excellent, we found them to be just a tiny bit lower than The Laithwaites Wine Club and the wines you receive from the Wine of the Month Club. However, these are still great wines at an incredibly low prices. We've yet to find one bottle of wine we did not like from the WSJ wine club.

Wine Education: 4 Stars Excellent
The level of wine education you receive from the Wall Street Journal Wine Club is excellent! The wine notes that come with every bottle are very colorful and informative and a vast improvement over previous years wine notes. They now provide nearly as much info the Wine of the Month Club does.

Pricing: 5 Stars Phenomenal
To compete with the Laithwaites Wine Club, the WSJ Wine Club is now matching their same low prices (only $5.84 a bottle). Please be aware that they also charge $19.99 for shipping and applicable tax.

Laithwaites Wine Club VISIT SITE
 

Laithwaites Wine Club

100% Satisfaction Guarantee

Overall Rating: 4 Stars Excellent
The Laithwaites Wine Club earned the #8 Best Wine Club distinction this year for their delicious wine picks, great education on each and every wine they send you, exceptionally low prices, and the wide variety of wines from around the world (France, Australia, Chile, Spain, California, Italy and Argentina) that you'll receive. They also have the nicest free gift with purchase as well, which makes it the best wine club to give as a gift to your friends and family.
Wine Quality: 4 Stars Excellent
Every quarter we receive a new 12 bottle shipment from the Laithwaites Wine Club and we're always pleasantly surprised by quality of the wines. At only $5.84 a bottle, you'd expect these wines to be low quality, but that's just not the case with the Laithwaites Wine Club.
Wine Education: 4 Stars Excellent
The Laithwaites Wine Club does an excellent job of educating you on each and every wine that they deliver. You'll learn where the wine came from, what the growing season was like that gave the wine it's unique flavor, how it was harvested and what was added to make the wine so unique and delicious.

Pricing: 4 Stars Excellent
The Laithwaites Wine Club offers the lowest pricing out of all the wine clubs we've reviewed at only $5.84 a bottle, making it an easy choice as the #1 Best Wine Club. Their money back guarantee ensures that if you're not satisfied with your wine club purchase, you'll be sure to get it all back.

Celebrations Wine Club VISIT SITE
 

Celebrations Wine Club

Overall Rating: 4 Stars Excellent
Celebrations placed 9th on our Best Wine Clubs list this year (which is still a very good rating to us) for specializing in excellent California and hard to find Italian wines. The owner of the wine club does all the tasting and buying on location! No other wine club can make that claim. If you love California or Italian wines, you'll really enjoy the Celebrations Wine Club.

Wine Quality: 4 Stars Excellent
We wanted to give Celebrations 5 stars for quality, especially for the amazing wines we received from their Italian Winemaker Reserve Super-Premium Red wine club, but had to lower it to a 4 star rating because of the wines they send from their lower priced wine clubs that start at $17 a bottle. Don't get us wrong, these are still great bottle of wine, but in all fairness they are only 4 star wines.

Wine Education: 4 Stars Excellent
Celebrations takes such a different approach to their monthly newsletter than other wine clubs do - which we really appreciated. In their newsletter you'll learn how the wine makers featured that month used creative and innovative methods to come up with a truly special wine. You'll learn the history of the vineyard and the grapes there, how they were made into wine, and which foods they best complement. We loved the meal recommendations and boy were they spot on.

Pricing:4 Stars Excellent
Pricing starts at $17 a bottle and goes all the way up to $87 a bottle depending on which wine club you sign up for. As you would expect, the most expensive wine club membership (Italian Winemaker Reserve Super-Premium Red) is absolutely amazing and well worth the investment.
