Last updated: November 18, 2013
Choosing a red wine club, or even the best red wine club, can be a daunting task. There are literally hundreds of red wine clubs, some feature all red wines, some just French or California reds, some single-varietal and some red blends, not to mention all of the different price-points offered.
The great news is, most wine clubs offer “red wine only” options for lovers of more fruity, earthy, and full-bodied wines. We use the same assiduous selection criteria for picking the best red wine of the month clubs as we do for all of our top wine club lists—so you know if you're shopping this list, you'll enjoy your wine membership.
