Premium Wine Club
by Cellars Wine Club

Overview: Our most popular Cellars Wine Club, it's like most other 2-bottle per month wine clubs but with a consumer stamp of approval.

What We Love: Cellars Wine Club is a (mostly) green company. They use earth-friendly packaging that is 100% recyclable.

Could Be Better: We'd like a better understanding of how they select their wines. We know some of what they've selected, but not anything about why.

WSJwine Wine Club
by Wall Street Journal Wine

Overview: Great value on many different types of wines from around the world and a consumer-favorite wine club.

What We Love: They have one of the best line-ups of introductory offers for wine clubs we've seen.

Could Be Better: With such unprecedent buying power, we'd love to see better quality wines at these prices.

Quarterly Case Club
by Cellars Wine Club

Overview: The best quality wines in a quarterly case wine club for this price. When compared to Zagat, WSJ, and Laithwaite's, we'd pick the Cellars Quarterly Case club hands down.

What We Love: Cellars Wine Club is a (mostly) green company. They use earth-friendly packaging that is 100% recyclable.

Could Be Better: We'd like a better understanding of how they select their wines. We know some of what they've selected, but not anything about why. An Introductory Offer would be cool, too!
