The Top 5 red wine of the month clubs for gifts

Last updated: November 17, 2014

Red wine clubs make superb gifts for red wine lovers. We suggest choosing a 3-month wine subscriptions—or for your nearest and dearest, a year of wine (often discounted further). While most wine clubs offer “red wine only” versions of their monthly/bi-monthly/quarterly clubs, we also showcase wine clubs that only come in shades of red, as they usually offer a little something extra for the red wine aficionado. This breadth lets us focus on choices that really deserve the title of best red wine club gift.

The least expensive options in monthly wine gifts are 2-bottle clubs, but when you want to make a big statement with more wine, there are great choices in 3-, 4-, 6-, and even case clubs. We’ve highlighted the clubs with the best gift packaging and gift announcements (including last-minute gifts), in addition to the best wines and the best customer service. Oh, and don’t forget the wine education!

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

Plonk Wine Club has been one of our favorite wine clubs for years. Etty goes out of her way to procure excellent, interesting, and, where possible, biodynamic wines to delight her customers. As a serious foodie, she also has chef-paired recipes for each selection, and a recommended cheese pairing, too. Count on premium customer service every time, and if you're giving this as a business gift, don't forget to ask Etty about including your own paper materials in the first shipment.

Two bottles not the right number? Plonk also comes in 4-bottle and 12-bottle versions.
