The Top 5 California wine of the month clubs

Last updated: July 29, 2013

When shopping for the best California wine club, you might feel a little overwhelmed by choices. There are so many California wine clubs out there, some specializing in just one region, like Napa or Central Coast, some specializing in boutique wineries, and some just showcasing the amazing range of talent in winemaking occuring in California.

We live in California and do quite a bit of wine tasting here, not just the wines from the wine clubs, but at wineries, too. When we assess the quality of a California wine club, we’re using our extensive experience to judge their previous selections, their winery partners, and their price points. That means that only the very best California wine clubs make our list.
