The Top 5 wine of the month clubs for collectors
Last updated: July 22, 2013
This list of best wine clubs for collectors was very hard for us to assemble. Okay, not really. When it comes to super-luxe wine clubs, they’re few and far between because there isn?t that much of a market for it. That doesn’t mean there’s no market for it, so lucky you, as you’ve got access to some special wines you probably couldn?t purchase on your own without going to an auction.
Whether you join one of these collector clubs to keep some really spectacular wines on hand for special occasions, or because you’re made of money and you drink this stuff every day, these wine clubs guarantee the collector experience you’re expecting.
Our editors have pored over our extensive wine club reviews and hand-selected these clubs because they exceed our expectations as compared to similar wine clubs, they offer better value or a better selection of wines than similar wine of the month clubs, and our readers buy these wine clubs more often than similar clubs.
The best red wine clubs are a mix of two things: the best wine clubs overall, and getting the most value on red wine (which can be expensive for the good stuff). We sifted through our independent wine club reviews to figure out which wine clubs are really the best red wine clubs. These red wine clubs are sure to delight.
Not surprisingly, there are a number of amazing values in white wine clubs. Since white wine is often cheaper than red for similar quality, we went even further with our best white wine clubs list, looking for the clubs that offer you interesting whites, not just good whites. Use our reviews to further refine your selection.
When it comes to California wine clubs, we've reviewed the most. And probably tasted the most, too. We live in California and frequently go wine tasting at the wineries. We know which producers deliver tremendous value, and then we use this information when we review all wine clubs featuring California wines.
Looking for a cut above the regular wine selection in your next monthly club? Try one of these Premium wine clubs. The wines typically cost a little more, but you’ll find you have access to a more unique selection, and wines that are much harder to find at your local store or in another wine club.
There are many “standard” two-bottle of the month wine clubs out there—one white, one red, virtually (and often literally) guaranteed not offend anyone. But if you’re intrigued by the unusual, distinctive, or boutique wines of the world, we suggest you take a look at this list of Most Interesting wine clubs.
