We bet you already know what we do... yep you guessed it, we review wine clubs. We do this to help wine-lovers find the best wine club for themselves or as a gift, all in the name of enjoying drinking wine on any budget.
Our wine club reviews consist of several steps to ensure the wine clubs we have on the site are well-vetted. These wine club review steps include:
Check Out the Wines: We review the wines each wine club has sent in the past (as shown on their own website or, if needed, as requested via email). We verify awards and points, as well as size of production, and we evaluate Quality-to-Price Ratio (QPR). Whenever possible we receive shipments from the wine clubs to keep a trained eye on the quality, too.
Scout the Deals: We look to see what kinds of discounts and perks the wine clubs offer their members. Some wine clubs have introductory offers or provide free-shipping so we want to know about that, too.
Check for Customization: Many wine clubs offer great flexibility in the selection of wine color, frequency of shipping, and payment methods. We use this bend-over-backwards information to help us rate wine clubs.
Read the Fine Print: We check all marketing copy, customer service information, FAQ pages, and return policies. When we find holes in the information, we contact the wine clubs to make sure we know what they will do for their customers and what they won’t.
No matter what your experience with wine or wine clubs, we've got a monthly wine club that's right for you. See which type you are, and then pick a wine of the month club!
We used to rate all wine clubs based on how much value they provide. What we discovered is that many of the premium wine clubs aren’t about primarily about value (and we don’t think they need to be) and that our readers were missing opportunities to find those premium wine clubs. So... we created a new two-tiered ratings system!
Value wine clubs are rated on these criteria:
Premium wine clubs are rated on these criteria:
We invite your feedback on our wine club reviews and ratings systems both on individual wine clubs and as a whole.

There are a lot of factors that go into the cost of shipping wine, whether the shipper is a wine club or a winery, an online wine store or your local wine store. No matter how much it does cost to send you your wine, you can be sure the company that sold you the wine hates it as much as you do... they know they can sell more wine if you get free shipping.
Things that contribute to the seemingly-high cost of shipping wine:
Why buy anything but the best wine clubs? These are our top picks for an overall monthly wine club, focused on wines that are priced $20 and under.
