Top 5 Best Wine Clubs

Top 5 Best Wine Clubs

The overall best wine of the month clubs

Last updated: July 1, 2014

This list of Top 5 Wine Clubs is designed to help those new to monthly wine clubs pick out the best opportunity to expand their wine-drinking experience. We choose wine of the month clubs that offer the most flexibility, the best quality-to-price ratio, appeal to the broadest range of palates, have great customer service, and are frequently bought by our readers.

These Top 5 wine clubs get re-checked every month to ensure they continue to meet our high expectations. Despite the monthly check-up, the list doesn't change very often, and usually the changes reflect the buying habits of other wine buyers more than any changes to the clubs themselves.

Club W Wine Experience
3 Bottles

by Club W

Wine Club Rating: This list is rated 4.5 stars

Overview: Club W is a new kind of wine club—get a personalized list of available selections each month and then choose your own wine. Very flexible in size of shipment and what goes in the box each month. This makes for a great gift, too!

What We Love: We love the great selection of quirky wines mostly priced at $13 with some better wines sprinkled in. We are especially impressed with the whites and roses which deliver knockout value. We love that you can put as many wines in your box as you want, and that shipping is free on 6 or more bottles.
