Best Wine Clubs for Collectors List
A premium-level California wine club featuring some of the finest wines produced in California.
They reward volume purchasing! If you can afford it, by upgrading to the 4-bottle per shipment program you can save up to $13 per bottle.
It seems like the price on this wine club is a little higher than it needs to be, so dropping it a bit and extending more of a discount to their premium subscribers would make us happy.
This is California Wine Club’s premium-level two-bottle per month wine club, and it’s a little pricey compared to others BUT, it’s also a higher quality wine club than many other of the “premium” wine clubs. While so much California wine is quite affordable, there’s an amazing selection of high-end California wine to be appreciated that a wine club focusing on California can delve into.
There’s a definite discount available if you choose the 4-bottle version of this club (you’ll save more than $13 per bottle on average). Additionally, by perusing the wines for sale from the Signature Series wine club on the California Wine Club website show us they frequently send out wines at the high-end of the price range rather than the low end.

Introducing our upper-level wine of the month club, Signature Series. When we are out visiting wineries, occasionally we happen upon some extraordinary, highly rated and extremely rare wines. Because of the limited quantity of wines available, we must restrict membership in our Signature Series to just 800 people.
Elite Signature Series Wine Club Deliveries Include:
Each wine club shipment includes two to four bottles of exquisite, highly rated wine and detailed tasting notes with winemaker comments.
Wine Club shipment costs vary each month depending on the wines being featured. You may choose a 2, 3, or 4 bottle selection. The two bottle selection averages $150 and the four bottle selection averages $275 (these wines normally retail between $40 and $100). Wine of the month club members can choose to receive wine monthly, every other month or quarterly.
