More wine clubs from

Wine of the Month Club ®

The Cellar Series Wine Club (the 6-bottle version of this club) from The Original Wine of the Month Club is preferred on both value and wine quality by Consumer Reports Magazine when compared to The Wall Street Journal Wine Club and The New York Times Wine Club.

There is no other wine club that we know of that works harder to deliver value to its customers than the Wine of the Month Club ®. Every aspect of their business is optimized to pass savings onto their customers, from shipping costs to the price paid for each case of wine they order, to their operations and facilities... it’s all driving value.

There are no other two-bottle clubs offering prices as low as this but the wines are as good if not better than the other introductory-level clubs. You can join the Vintners Series Wine Club (Wine of the Month Club's Intermediate-level wine club) for the same cost as most introductory-level clubs.

Even more value! When you subscribe to a Wine of the Month Club ®, you’ll also get access to members-only pricing on everything they carry in their Wine Shoppe.

This IS the club that started it all. I mean really started "wine to your door." The founding feature of the Original WINE OF THE MONTH CLUB™ is the Classic Series.

Each month I taste over 400 wines. Through trade tastings, winemaker visits, in-house tasting sessions, and many other venues, I select the two wines that will be featured for that's month's selections. Working in my father's wine shop in the 70's , I used to brown bag and set up the wines each Tuesday for tasting... and that is the tradition still... Tasting on Tuesday.

I qualify each wine for its representation of what it should be. In other words, a Cabernet Sauvignon from Sonoma County should be distinctively different from that of the same grape and vintage from Argentina.

Each month you or your recipient will receive two vintages of wine (full 750ml bottles). One will be red and one will be white (unless you specify reds or whites only,) and one will be domestic and one will be imported. Each chosen for its quality and value. I can tell you that of the 400 wines I taste monthly, only 15% are approved for potential club selections and then only 1% make it as selections.

Because of our tenure in the industry and our good standing with wineries, we are sought out by smaller lesser known wineries to feature their wines. After all, you don't need me to find Robert Mondavi or Beringer wines!

Each shipment is accompanied by our famous Wine Letter; A 12-page newsletter packed with information for both the novice and experienced wine taster. It includes winery and winemaker history, recipes, cellaring suggestions, serving suggestions and wine anecdotes to share.

Come join me as we embark on a wonderful journey through the vineyards of California and the world, right in your own home. Many members save each month's selections for a monthly dinner with friends. Try it and you will be on your way.

These wines represent great value and are comparable to wines you might see at your local wine shop for $12.00-$15.00. Monthly subscriptions are never more than $19.98 per month for 2 bottles, plus shipping & applicable taxes.
