The Best Wine Club Gifts At-a-Glance

A wine club is the perfect gift for both experienced and new wine drinkers. The delight of wine arriving at your door never gets old, and like all gift of the month clubs, a wine subscription is a gift that keeps on giving.

If you're unsure of what type of wine drinker you're buying for, don't worry: this list focuses on what we lovingly refer to as palate-pleasers — wines that are hard to find objectionable by any reasonable standard (or wine drinker).

We think about the whole gift-selection process when we put this list together. Our first priorities when deciding on the best wine subscription gifts include gift presentation options, reliable high-quality wine, and customer service record.

Oh, and don't forget the wine education: part of a great wine of the month club gift is the informational material which helps your wine lover learn more about the wine they're drinking, increasing confidence in wine selection and enjoyment.

Want to get specific? We've also ranked Red Wine Club Gifts and White Wine Club Gifts or you can shop all of the Wine Club Gifts we've reviewed.

Wine subscription gift options

The California Wine Club only sells wine produced by small, family wineries in California — no bulk wine, nothing large production, not ever. Their Premier Series is their "entry level" wine club gift.

When you order red- or white-only you get 2 each of the same bottle in the shipment, and 4 each if you've upgraded.

About the Gift: Your gift recipient will enjoy two boutique wines from small California wineries in each shipment, but also all kinds of extra fun comes in the first shipment — an elegant bottle stopper, a $25 wine credit, a VIP winery tour and tasting invitation, and a personalized gift card from you. In future shipments there could be little goodies, too, like artistic note cards or expanded recipes — always something to delight your recipient.

The California Wine Club Gift Presentation

by Gold Medal Wine Club
Giftworthiness:

Exclusive Deal For Gifts Give a wine club gift of 3 months or longer and get a bonus bottle of Central Coast Merlot, a free artist-designed gift box, free gift bags, and a free printed gift notice. Click for This Deal.

Wine subscription gift options

The Gold Medal Wine Club showcases award-winning California wines and the Gold Series is their "entry level" wine club gift. The Gold Medal Wine Club is consistent in the quality of their wine, their wine magazine The Wine Press, and their excellent customer service.

About the Wine: The Gold Series, a collection of medal-winning wine from family-owned and operated wineries in California, is available as a 2-bottle and a 4-bottle wine club of mixed red and white wines, red wine only, or white wine only. When you order red- or white-only you get 2 each of the same bottle in the shipment, and 4 each if you've upgraded. A PLUS! bottle is available in each shipment for an additional $39 — these are special bottles the wine club was only able to procure in smaller quantities than their full wine membership requires.

Insider Tip: Gold Medal Wine Club really encourages the "buy more, save more" concept by rewarding customers for bigger orders. Whether you upgrade to four bottles or buy more months, you'll be getting more for your money.

The Gold Medal Wine Club Gift Presentation

The Exclusive 2018 Deal: Gold Medal has put together a special gift package just for our readers. Give a Gold Series gift of 3 or more shipments and they'll get a bonus bottle of Napa Cab and you'll give them free gift wrapping, gift box, and a gift card, too.

3. Wine by the Glass Club

by VineBox
Giftworthiness:

VineBox is one of our new favorites. While most wine of the month clubs are focused on selling wine in quantity, VineBox has scaled back and instead sells in-home wine-tasting experiences. Each shipment features three glass tubes of wine, each containing 10 cl or roughly 3.3 oz (a small glass of wine).

About the Wine: The wines are super interesting, mostly old-world selections (think European wine regions) and are sophisticated selections you almost certainly have never seen before. The unique feature of this subscription, the glass tubes, are rebottled from full-size bottles using a specially developed nitrogen system which prevents any wine from ever coming in contact with oxygen during the process.

About the Gift: VineBox's standard packaging is perfect for gifting. Each box is a well-designed treasure chest. The interior is composed of a dense, black foam that protects the tubes during shipment. If the recipient loves a wine and it's still available, they can order a full size bottle through VineBox.

Insider Tip: Each box is really only suited to a one-person tasting, so if you're buying for a couple and want them to share the experience, we recommend using their "Double It" option which also saves you 5%. When they redeem the gift, they'll select their wine preferences and the shipments will begin.

Shopping Last Minute? VineBox offers to send a gift announcement via email, so they know a gift is on its way before they receive it. The default setting is to send the email as soon as you place your order, but you can opt to have it sent on any future date on the same screen where you add your custom gift message.

4. WINC Wine Club

by WINC
Giftworthiness:

Exclusive Deal For You Join today and save $26 on your first Winc box. Free shipping on orders of 4 or more bottles. Click for This Deal.

Wine subscription gift options

Winc is one of our favorite wine clubs when buying for yourself, but it also makes a terrific gift. Unlike other wine subscriptions where the wines are always pre-selected by the club, Winc members can choose their own wines if they want to. This option is great for wine drinkers who want to discover new grapes and new regions.

About the Wine: Winc used to purchase wines at deep discounts to sell through their wine club, but for quite a while now they've been producing their own wine instead. Most of their production is California wine but they offer interesting selections from other areas around the world, too. Roughly 60% of their wines are priced at $13 a bottle (for members) and they offer a variety of wines from $14-40 per bottle. Heavily focused on California wine, the $13 selections are primarily sourced from grapes grown in Santa Barbara, Lodi, and Paso Robles. The more expensive selections are often sourced from Napa and Sonoma counties.

About the Gift: When you give a gift of Winc, you purchase credits, like a digital gift card, that they'll redeem when it's convenient for them. You can buy gift credits in $50 increments, ranging from $60 (a one-time gift which includes shipping and sales tax) to $600 which is a whole year of wine, shipping included. To announce your gift, you can choose between a few options: A beautiful note delivered via FedEx for $6, a note you can print at home and put in a card, or an email announcement which goes out immediately when you order.

Insider Tip: We love Winc and we especially love their white wine selection. When you give this gift you won't specify the wine type, but they'll ask your wine lover about their preferences when the gift is redeemed. It's even a great wine gift for wine drinkers who prefer their wine on the sweeter side of the spectrum.

Shopping Last Minute? No problem. The download and print or email gift announcement options means you're covered even the same day you're giving the gift.

5. Pinot Noir Wine Club

by Gold Medal Wine Club
Giftworthiness:

For Gifts Give a wine club gift of 12 shipments and save 5%. Click for This Deal.

Wine subscription gift options

Perfect for any Pinot Noir lover, the Gold Medal Pinot Noir Series wine club ships high-end Pinot Noir from small family vineyards and wineries throughout California. With easily upgradable gift packaging, this is the easiest Pinot give you'll ever give.

About the Wine: Whether you're into big fruity cola, or subtle cherry, or earthy and Burgundian-style Pinot Noirs, you can't go wrong with this Pinot club. California's best Pinot growing regions include the Russian River Valley, Sonoma Coast, and Sta. Rita Hills, but there gems hidden everywhere up and down the state. Experience different clones of Pinot Noir (different kinds of grapes produce different flavors) and see what California's boutique winemakers can do.

About the Gift: The Gold Medal Wine Club has an excellent reputation for consistent quality, but they also handle gifting really well. You can upgrade to include a special artist-designed box on the first shipment and include a printed message in the first box.

Shopping Last Minute? When you check out at Gold Medal Wine Club, you'll be given an option to create and download a gift notice to print yourself. That way you have something to put in the card on the big day.

6. Signature Series

by The California Wine Club
Giftworthiness:

For You & For Gifts Give any wine club gift and get two extra bottles of wine in the first shipment PLUS a $25 wine credit for the wine store. Until Jul 31. Use code EXTRAWINE at checkout or Click for This Deal.


Wine subscription gift options

Overview: This wine club, one of our favorites, features hard-to-access, ultra-premium, mostly red wine, from California's boutique family wineries. An important thing to note: not all bottles shipped in this club have the same general cost. Instead of getting two $75 bottles, you might get a $140 and a $35 bottle. No matter how much it retails for, you'll always get interesting wine from the Siganture Series.

What We Love: We love the wine we've received from this club, in fact it's on our Editor's Picks list because we'd sign up for this one. Also, they reward volume purchasing! If you can afford it, by upgrading to the 4-bottle per shipment program you can save up to $11 per bottle. Get a preview of the killer selection in their online wine store.

Wine Club Gift Info: The Signature Series is the perfect wine gift splurge for a wine lover who likes to explore new wines. For an extra $18 you order a pre-wine gift package announcing the gift. Send it to yourself to present in person on the big day or send it directly to your wine lover so they know the wine is coming.

7. Bubbles & Rosé Club

by Vinley Market
Giftworthiness:

Exclusive Deal For You & For Gifts Save 10% on your first order, gifts and memberships. Use code WCRVINLEY at checkout.

Wine subscription gift options

Overview: Sometimes you want bubbly, sometimes you want rosé, and with this club you can get both from small wineries offering exceptional value. There aren't many sparkling wine clubs and this is the only wine club we know of that promises rosé in every shipment.

What We Love: Rosé has experienced a meteoric rise to popularity, because it plays well in so many different styles, and these sommelier-selected sparkling rosés (and still rosé, too) scratch that rosé itch. We especially love how the selections are dry and fruity without being too sweet.

Wine Club Gift Info: The Bubbles & Rosé wine club makes a terrific gift for anyone who enjoys wine. These somm-selected dry rosés, both still and sparkling, are one of our favorite wine club gifts because every box is fun and brings joy. Gift message available, but no gift wrap.

What We Love: The level of sophistication in both design and writing of their monthly magazine and how the wine isn't expensive but is a very good value.

Giftworthiness:

For Gifts Save $10 when you give a 4-month wine club gift. Use code SAVE10 at checkout.


For Gifts Save $15 when you give a 6-month wine club gift. Use code SAVE15 at checkout.


For Gifts Save $25 when you give a year of wine gift. Use code SAVE25 at checkout.

Wine subscription gift options

Overview: The Bold Reds club features International red wines showcasing, yep, bigger and bolder flavors, that are more tannic and fruit forward. These are not your typical easy-drinking wines but they're perfect for pizza, grill nights, and all forms of meat.

What We Love: More than anything, we love surprise factor of these wines. Every time we open a box, we sort of grimace at the prospect of drinking a Rhone red or an Barolo (wines that we typically don't enjoy because of our own palate preferences), but we're always surprised at how the wines are enjoyable anyway, and usually much better than we were expecting.

Wine Club Gift Info: Wine club gifting is an area that this company excels at. They give you the most options of any two-bottle wine club, from when you pay for each shipment, to all of the standard customizations, gift notice options, etc. The first shipment of all gifts includes organza-wrapped bottles for an extra touch.

10. Champagne Club

by Henri's Reserve
Giftworthiness:

Wine subscription gift options

Overview: We already go weak in the knees for a great champagne, but the shipment we received has us wishing the next shipment would get here sooner. A mouth-watering way to explore the region of Champagne, particularly from boutique grower houses that rarely export to the United States.

What We Love: A delightful and decadent way to treat yourself (or pamper a lucky gift recipient), Henri's Reserve is a playful yet sophisticated true Champagne Club, featuring top-notch small producers.

For Gifts Save $25 when you give a year of wine gift. Use code SAVE25 at checkout.

Also for a wine club in this price range you get excellent tasting notes and winery information for every wine that's shipped.

What We Love: Unlike some other wine clubs which focus on acquiring closeout wines to ship to their members, this wine club cares a great deal about coming up with consistent selections befitting their reputation of 25 years in the business. Their tasting panel includes proprietor Kris Calef, wine professionals, and everyday wine drinkers, so they excel at finding palate-friendly wines with wide appeal.
