Best Value Wine Clubs

The Top 5 wine of the month clubs for value shoppers

Last updated: September 1, 2015

If you’re looking for the best value in a wine club, you’ve found the right place. There are a lot of cheap wine clubs out there, but not all of these clubs actually deliver great value. Some wine clubs excel at driving the purchase price of each bottle down and passing the savings on to you, other clubs taste extensively and always find the best wines available at bargain prices, and still others look for good-quality wines from inexpensive wine regions.

No matter what their wine-buying strategy is, some clubs consistently deliver great value in their wine shipments. Better still, some take the value further, by subsidizing the shipping cost of the wine, offering freebies, and providing members-only discounts on reorders.

All-Around Rating:

Limited Time Offer
Hot Deal: Get $19 in credits on your first shipment from Club W for ongoing subscriptions!

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.

Could Be Better: The wine descriptions tend to purposely avoid helpful terms that experienced wine drinkers look for in selecting bottles (i.e., no references to "buttery" or "acidic"), and the red wines haven't been our cup of tea. It's hard to sell a good red wine for $13, but we think they can do better here.

#2

Overview: Two bottles just not enough for you? We understand. Try this bigger version of the incredibly popular Classic Series wine club.

What We Love: We love that Paul streams his wine-tasting sessions live over the Internet so we can see what he's tasting and how much he's rejected.

Could Be Better: We'd love to see this offered on a monthly basis, too!

All-Around Rating:

Limited Time Offer
Take a 30-second wine survey get the wine tasting kit for just $9.95 (a $40 value), shipping included. Rate the wines and get a personalized wine club subscription. No coupon code needed.

Overview: A personalized wine program that starts with an in-home wine tasting experience, then gets to know your palate and only sends you wines that fit your wine profile. If you want to buy your wine by the case, this is a great choice for getting wines that suit your preferences.

What We Love: Tasting Room by 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. We also receive complaints regarding their customer service being hard to reach. This is reflected in the Customer Service rating we give them.

inClub Everyday
by Invino
All-Around Rating:

Overview: Custom wine club where you choose everything. These everyday drinkers deliver amazing QPR due to clever buying strategies.

What We Love: No other wine club has ever, and probably will ever, deliver this level of customization. You want it? You got it. It's perfect for any oenophile.

Could Be Better: We'd love to see a ton more pre-made "personality profiles" to make sign-up at any price a breeze. Also, the ability to buy a case at a time would be fabulous.

Gold Series Club
by Gold Medal Wine Club
All-Around Rating:

Limited Time Offer
Save 10% on orders of 12 shipments. No coupon code required.

Overview: An incredibly popular wine club delivering the highest-quality wines among the two-bottle monthly wine clubs.

What We Love: Consistency. We've been receiving their shipments for years and we've never had a wine we didn't like. You can't really ask for more than that from a wine club.

Could Be Better: We don't have any suggestions for what to improve within the Gold Series wine club. Yay!
