Summary

The big brother wine club for the award-winning Gold Series, we think they're delivering a top-notch wine experience with this wine club, too.

What We Like

For a wine club that picks out such excellent wine, they don't need to be so customer-friendly on their extra features... but they are! We can't help but love their attention to detail.

Improvements

We don't have any suggestions for what to improve within the Platinum Series wine club. Yay!

Note: The monthly price is a range between $79-99 plus shipping.

Some of the Gold Medal Wine clubs offer more value than others, but this one is among their best values. They know their wines are good, and you know this because they show you many past selections. Wine clubs that aren’t confident in their selections hide them so you can’t argue with their marketing copy. These wines speak for themselves.

Here’s what we really love about The Gold Medal Wine Club Platinum Series:

  • The wines are truly special wines at everyday prices
  • If you drink at least a bottle a week we suggest you upgrade to the 4-bottle shipment because they give you even better value with a 10% discount
  • Shipping costs aren’t included (good!) and are lower than all of the other clubs we’ve seen (great!)
  • There are a TON of member benefits including the steepest reorder discount we’ve seen
  • Very flexible on shipment schedule and shipment contents
  • Optional “Plus! Program” allows you to get exceptional values added to your shipment as they’re available. These are member-only deals not available for purchase on the website
