This list of best white wine club gifts has been curated by a white wine lover... specifically, an ABC white wine lover. ABC is code for “Anything but Chardonnay,” and while I like a nice unoaked Chardonnay on occasion, there is so much more to white wine drinking than the most planted grape on the planet.
These white wine gifts offer your recipient a chance to discover the best white wines from around the world, rare and unusual varietals—especially if he or she shops for wine primarily at a large chain store. There isn’t enough demand to keep unusual wines on the shelf at a big volume store, and there are so many wonderful whites that this may be single best way to find them.
Check out our new profile just for gift-givers or see all of our wine clubs ranked by giftworthiness.
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. This makes for a great gift, too!
What We Love: We love the great selection of quirky wines all priced at $13 or $19, and are especially impressed with the whites and roses. 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").
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 months 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!
Overview: A personalized wine program powered by the innovative technology and impressive teams from Tasting Room and Lot18. Our new favorite wine club.
What We Love: Everything? No seriously, we love that they found a way to distinguish themselves from the other "personalized wine clubs" out there. We love the pricing, we love the delivery model, and we're pretty sure we're going to love the wines... since they're picked just for us.
Could Be Better: Make a gift option! We used to love to give the sampler + two bottle Tasting Room gift and would happily give this program instead.
Overview: Italian white wine club delivering great wines and great value.
What We Love: Family-owned and operated, these Italianos love their food and wine, and love to share their passion!
Could Be Better: More gift options, gift packaging, and may an introductory offer would make this the best Italian wine club around.
Overview: The hippest wine club on the web focusing on high-value wines under $20 a bottle with exceptional extras.
What We Love: This is a truly unique wine club with a bonus bottle on sign-up and a focus on Natural Wine (organic/biodynamic) that travels the world hunting for your next wine deal.
Could Be Better: Nothing. We're pretty stoked about these guys.
We've hand-selected these wine clubs for you because: They exceed our expectations as compared to similar wine clubs; They offer better value or a better selection of wines than similar wine of the month clubs; Our readers prefer these to similar clubs.
The best red wine clubs are a mix of two things: the best wine clubs overall, and getting the most value on red wine (which can be expensive for the good stuff). We sifted through our independent wine club reviews to figure out which wine clubs are really the best red wine clubs. These red wine clubs are sure to delight.
Not surprisingly, there are a number of amazing values in white wine clubs. Since white wine is often cheaper than read for similar quality, we went even further with our best white wine clubs list, looking for the clubs that offer you interesting whites, not just good whites. Use our reviews to further refine your selection.
A monthly wine club makes for a wonderful gift, for any type of wine lover. If your recipient drinks occasionally, or is someone you don’t know really well, you’ll find this selection of best wine club gift reviews a perfect place to shop.
You must really like some lucky wine drinker if you’re on the hunt for the best red wine club gift! Most wine clubs offer “red wine only” versions of their month clubs, but this list of red wine gifts also includes special wine clubs that always ship only red wine.
The best California wine clubs make the best gifts, too. This selection of monthly clubs has been chosen for this list based on their excellent selection of wines representative of California’s many varieties and styles, as well as their eminent gift-worthiness.
