The 8 Most Amazing Wine Of The Month Clubs
For those people interested in experimenting with extraordinary wine at a great price with many amazing benefits, joining a wine club might be perfect. It’s more popular today than ever and the choices are outstanding. However, it can seem overwhelming and each club offers different perks that might appeal to you. The main reason most people join clubs comes down to the fact that they just don’t have time to scour the shelves in stores. Busy people just grab something that they usually drink and that’s it. With wonderful wine from all over the world available through wine clubs, it’s worth trying to see if it fits your lifestyle.
New To Wine Clubs?
The first things to look for are the guarantees of satisfaction, discounts of volume-purchasing, perks when signing up and shipping costs/challenges. Start by searching their website. Most wineries offer club memberships and there are Texas-only clubs. However, out-of-state clubs will ship almost anywhere. Calling or emailing directly is the best way to get your questions answered and one thing to check is the return policy for a wine that you don’t like or if a gift purchase can be exchanged.
Some Amazing Benefits
Most clubs buy large quantities avoiding a distributor so pricing can be much lower for you. Smaller ‘family-owned’ producers don’t get onto the grocery shelves but have a great quality of wine and are only available through wine clubs. Included in some packages, you’ll get the history, descriptions of the wine and the winemaker, facts about the region and even recipes or wine pairings. Discounts are offered on re-ordering your favorites. Collecting certain wines or special bottles is part of the fun. Palate profiles have now been added so the team can select wines especially for your tastes and even further educate your palate. Tastings are members-only events in some areas and even yearly conventions, workshops, invitations to the season’s offerings or travel to different wine regions as a package deal is available at some clubs.
To explore the incredible range of wines you can get when joining a wine club, both in affordability and taste, research, and contact them before signing up to make sure you’re getting exactly what you want. Just have your questions ready and ask about the benefits they can offer you as a first-time customer. Even if you are a connoisseur, there is something new waiting for you to try. Without further delay here are the very best ones to choose from.

#6 Wine Awesomeness
Wine Awesomeness is much more than a company, it’s their culture. They are on a mission to change how their generation perceives wine. As millennials, they think differently and consequently, have their own unique perspective on wine. They believe in and support vino that emphasizes balance and finesse over the manipulated, over-extracted juice that dominates the supermarket shelves.
#5 Gold Medal Wine Club
The Gold Medal Wine Club searches for small production, award-winning wines from California and the world’s best boutique wineries and delivers them direct to wine enthusiasts across the country. These highly allocated, hard-to-find wines are usually only available at the winery and not typically found in stores.
#4 The California Wine Club
Since 1990, club owners Bruce and Pam Boring have traveled California’s wine country searching for limited-production wines from small, family-owned wineries dedicated to the art of making fine wine. Whether for yourself or as a gift, The California Wine Club is an adventure in wine tasting that will not be experienced anywhere else.
They feature wines not only from Napa and Sonoma but to less-explored wine regions like Santa Barbara, Monterey, the Sierra Foothills and beyond. More than three-quarters of California’s 2,100+ wineries are small, boutique, mom-and-pop operations whose wines never travel beyond their local markets and private customer lists.
Membership costs nothing, you can cancel anytime, and every wine is 100% guaranteed.
#3 Becker Vineyards
The Beckers began searching for a log cabin to renovate in order to create a hill country getaway from their home in San Antonio. The couple has traveled extensively abroad and has always been passionate about experiencing culinary and wine delights. The cabin was discovered and along with it, 46 acres of raw land. The site was rich with native Mustang grapes, a time honored and essential component of the local German Heritage. The dream of a commercial vineyard and “maybe” a 1500-case winery began to take shape. The first harvest in 1995, laid the foundation for what is now just over a 100,000-case per year winery. They have two wine clubs, The Becker Wine Club with exclusive winery only wines and The Red Premier Club with their premier single vineyard and small batch offerings.
#2 Wine of the Month Club
The Original Wine of the Month Club was founded in 1972 with the purpose of taking the guesswork out of choosing great wine. When all the California greats (Chateau Montelena, Dry Creek Vineyards, Jordan etc.) were coming of age, Paul Kalemkiarian Sr. set out to taste all that he could to find the best values for his customers. Soon after he began showcasing two wines each month that he considered to be the best values, his son, began delivering the selections to the local few that were interested. As the popularity grew, father and son began shipping the wine directly through UPS, and the idea of wine in the mail was born.
Each month, Paul Kalemkiarian Jr. tastes over 400 wines, which he then pares down to the twelve wines (two reds and two whites for each of the Club’s series) that will be featured in a given month. Paul qualifies each wine according to how well it represents the wine’s grape and region. In other words, a Cabernet Sauvignon from Sonoma County should be distinctively different from that of the same grape and vintage from Argentina.
#1 Winc Wines
Club W was the world’s first personalized wine club. They made the process of discovering and buying wine easier than ever — and as they expanded to other facets of the experience, they became much more than a club.
Winc is re-imagining every aspect of wine, from the art and science of winemaking to packaging and transport to how wine is sold, distributed, and ultimately enjoyed. They’re doing all this as part of their quest to improve the experience for consumers, create a platform for artisanal winemaking, and build a grape-to-glass supply chain that’s sustainable for the planet.
They’re driven by the desire to make great wines with passion and pride, and to bring transparency, honesty, innovation, and curiosity to an industry dominated by opaque, entrenched conglomerates.
