The Top 5 international wine of the month clubs

Last updated: November 13, 2013

There are only a handful of wine clubs that openly describe themselves as International, though most of them really are. We take International to mean “produced outside the US” though clearly the United States is part of the global wine production universe.

We’re pretty sure you’ll learn something about the different wine regions of the world, and thoroughly enjoy the experience, if you choose a wine club from this list of best international wine of the month clubs.

4-bottle Wine Club
by Plonk Wine Merchants
All-Around Rating:

Overview: Featuring hand-picked, adventurous selections from around the world. Great value and great drinking in every shipment.

What We Love: Industry-leading customer service, no ho-hum selections allowed, always over-delivers on value, and it's a great wine club for foodies.

Could Be Better: As this wine club continues to add more benefits like a satisfaction guarantee, discounts on reorders, partnerships to enhance their wine pairing, and more choices for customization, we only have praise for Plonk.

International Series
by Gold Medal Wine Club
All-Around Rating:

Overview: Exclusive wines from around the world and an Adventure Package of tasty treats and other goodies to take you on a worldwide journey without leaving your living room.

What We Love: It's hard to compare a wine club that includes extra goodies to one that doesn't, because come on, most wine lovers love food, too! The fact that you can't get these wines from any other company in the U.S. doesn't hurt either.

Could Be Better: We don't have any suggestions for what to improve within the International Series wine club. Yay!

International Selections
by The California Wine Club
All-Around Rating:

Overview: Using the same methods and ideas of wine selection as they've used for years in California, the California Wine Club has translated their vision to an International stage.

What We Love: The California Wine Club has an excellent reputation and they've been in business a long time. We like that it's a family business supporting other family businesses.

Could Be Better: We think they should have stayed in California. There are many other specialty clubs that the California Wine Club could have developed and left the International wines to other wine clubs.

The World of Wine Club
by Vinesse
All-Around Rating:

Overview: One of the best International wine clubs. Each shipment features a new wine region... and often unusual ones!

What We Love: Consistent quality and excellent "discovery" club enhances your wine knowledge and expands your palate.

Could Be Better: We'd love it customers were rewarded for ordering the bigger shipments. "Buy more save more" would be great!

Master Series
by WineTasting.com
All-Around Rating:

Overview: A step above their two-bottle introductory wine club featuring better-quality wines from around the world.

What We Love: This wine club is offered at a good price with great value. Unusual selections at this price range make us happy!

Could Be Better: If this club were offered at other intervals, like bi-monthly or quarterly. An introductory offer would make this club very competitive with others in its price range.
