Summary

Using the same methods and ideas of wine selection as they've used for years in California, the California Wine Club has translated their vision to an International stage.

What We Like

The California Wine Club has an excellent reputation and they've been in business a long time. We like that it's a family business supporting other family businesses.

Improvements

We think they should have stayed in California. There are many other specialty clubs that the California Wine Club could have developed and left the International wines to other wine clubs.

The California Wine Club

After conquering the business of wine clubs focusing on California wine, The California Wine Club went out to replicate their quality service for “mom-and-pop wineries” around the world. If all we read was the marketing copy, this would be our top pick for an International wine club... but we dig deeper and truth be told we’re a little concerned about the selections. Most of them aren’t rated but if you read through the blogs and CellarTracker consumer reviews, you might find what we did... ordinary wines being “handpicked” for import.

Our curiosity is definitely piqued and we’d love to give this club a whirl, but we’re not expecting perfection.

In response to member requests, we created our International Selections, focusing on "mom & pop" wineries from countries like France, Spain, Italy and South Africa (to name a few!). Wonderful tasting, limited production wines, imported directly by The California Wine Club and not available anywhere else in the U.S.

What Your Wine Club Shipments Will Include: Each wine club shipment includes two bottles of outstanding wine hand-selected from the world's finest boutique wineries! Included with each shipment is our engaging full color newsletter highlighting the families behind the wines, the country of origin, recipes, travel tips, fun historical facts and much more! Shipments average $65-$80 and include all shipping, handling and import charges.

Recently Featured International Selections: Wines like a sought-after 2000 French Bordeaux (Chateau Labory d'Eyrin 2000 Margaux), a fresh and spicy super Tuscan (Dioniso 1998 Chianti Reserve) from Italy or a mouthfilling Austrian Blauer Zweigelt (Sepp Moser 2001 Blauer Zweigelt Reserve).

Our Wine Club Guarantee:
There is never any bulk, closeout or private label wine. Each international wine is hand-selected by Bruce & Pam and one that they proudly serve in their own home. Wine of the month club memberships cost nothing, you can cancel anytime and every wine is 100% guaranteed.

Save on Your Favorite Wine Of The Month Club Selections:
Bruce & Pam import the wines directly. No middleman and no distributor means members get the best choice of wine, at the best possible price. Members can even reorder their favorites and save up to 50% off normal retail.

Easy to Join:
Stay for as long as you like! Most wine of the month club customers keep a credit card on file which we bill each month, right before shipping. There are no joining fees and you may cancel your wine club membership anytime.
