Geared toward less-experienced wine drinkers who are looking to expand their wine knowledge, this wine club is a good value among introductory wine clubs. Frequently the wine club selections are priced higher than the monthly subscription price on the Wine.com website so we know they’re offering their subscribers a discount.

This type of wine club is especially good for someone who appreciates good wine but doesn’t live near a decent wine store or can’t purchase good wines from their local grocery stores.

The best way to learn about wine is to drink wines of as many different varietals and from as many different wine-growing regions as you can afford to to see what you like and what you don’t like. This wine club is among those appropriate for this type of learning.

Wine.com wine clubs have tools for gift-giving:

  • If you’re giving this wine club subscription as a last-minute gift, they have a template you can customize and print on your home computer so you have something to present to the recipient on the occasion you’re gifting.
  • Gift recipient email address (to send delivery notice, recommended since adult signature is required)
  • Add a printed gift message: add a free gift message for your gift card and email notice (240 characters). By entering a gift message, you indicate your order is a gift and we will withhold all price information from its contents.
