Best Affordable Wine Clubs

The Top 5 most affordable wine of the month clubs

Last updated: February 26, 2014

Not everyone who loves wine can afford premium prices, so if you want wine for a dime, this list of best affordable wine clubs is a great place to start. We examined quality-to-price ratio (QPR in the wine biz), price per bottle, shipping costs—and of course, the wine selection. Some wine clubs make a point of offering affordable monthly wine clubs because it's the right thing to do, so we also focused on companies with great customer service and strong reputations.

The definition of affordable is subjective—as is the definition of good wine for that matter—but these selections are geared toward value-shoppers, and not just the frugal ones. These picks are most likely to please shoppers who prefer not to spend more than $20 on a bottle of wine, but also are good for people who want a monthly treat, or gift, for under $40 per shipment.

Not sure if “affordable” is the most important aspect of your wine club purchase? Try our Top 5 Wine Clubs list to see a top-notch selection of wine clubs for any budget.
