Best Quarterly Case Wine Clubs

Best Quarterly Case Wine Clubs

The Top 5 quarterly case wine of the month clubs

Last updated: July 29, 2013

Sussing out the best quarterly case wine club isn’t the easiest job in the world. There’s a lot of noise from the company that brought this type of wine club to the US market (Laithwaites) and there are many imitators trying to get in on the action. We love Quarterly Case Clubs because they are the most cost-effective way, as a consumer, to receive wine in the mail and because fewer shipments is more friendly to the environment (less fuel used on deliveries and less packaging).

We’ve located the signal among the noise—the best case clubs—and recommend these quarterly wine clubs, each offering an option to buy a case of wine every 3 months, and have it conveniently delivered to your door. We definitely emphasize quality and consistency in these selections, so stock your cellar and enjoy wine more often without breaking the bank.

Tasting Room by Lot18
by Lot18

Overview: A personalized wine program powered that gets to know your palate by starting your subscription with a tasting kit—real wine tasting in your living room. A significant step up from anonymous case clubs.

What We Love: Lot18 delivers on value, but at a higher level than other case clubs you might be considering. These selections are tailored to your preferences and they send exclusive wines you won't find anywhere else. Online account management is a big plus.

Could Be Better: We've had some complaints about quality. This is probably more a factor of their high-end marketing push which makes buyers think these are exceptional wines, when really, they're just good wines. Fortunately, they've just made a major upgrade to their customer service procedures and added a phone line, so we think they're heading in the right direction.

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!

The World of Wine Club
by Vinesse

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!

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.

Laithwaites Wine Club
by Laithwaites Wine

Overview: Unprecedented prices on a selection of wines from around the world, old-world focused and delivered quarterly.

What We Love: The introductory offer programs help increase the value of joining this wine club.

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