Good wine subscription gift

Our most highly-recommended wine subscription gift is the Premier Series from The California Wine Club. Featuring only small-production California wine, it is great for all wine lovers, especially California wine lovers.

One of the things to love about The California Wine Club is an obsessive focus on selecting high-quality wines that appeal to many palates. Fortunately this doesn’t just limit us to Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay — you’ll also find delightful Petite Sirah, Zinfandel, Red Blends, Sauvignon Blanc, and Rhone-style whites, too.

The California Wine Club offers a few different wine subscriptions. We enthusiastically recommend them all for gifts. Here are the two most popular.

The Signature Series is one of their premium wine subscription gifts, offering hard-to-access fine wine from California’s boutique wineries. Prices start at $134 per shipment. Give this or Learn more.

The Pacific Northwest Series is one of their premium wine subscription gifts, offering hard-to-access wine from small family wineries in Washington and Oregon. Prices start at $71 per shipment. Give this or Learn more.

Why Give This: Reliable quality, premium gift presentation, good value, and great customer service. Order now and ship later. All gift boxes include a personalized note.

Good wine subscription gift

The Gold Medal Wine Club selects high-quality California wines. The Gold Club is their entry-level option, perfect for giving hand-picked California wine. Without a doubt, Gold Medal wins on gift presentation.

The wine program at Gold Medal includes a diverse selection of award-winning California wine regions and grape varieties. We personally do a lot of wine tasting in California. Between the inventory in their online store and shipments we’ve received from them, we’re confident they’re buying the best wines for this price range.

Gold Medal Wine Club offers a few other wine subscriptions (in addition to the Gold Wine Club). We enthusiastically recommend them all for gifts. Here are the two most popular.

The Pinot Noir Club features California’s best Pinot Noirs, hailing from premium regions and wineries across the state. Prices start at $76 per shipment. Give this or Learn more.

Good wine subscription gift

VineBox is an amazing wine tasting gift, and thankfully they offer it as a wine subscription service. Each quarterly tasting box contains 9 “glasses” of wine (around 3 oz each) and is themed to make learning about wine fun. Gifts are announced via email. When they redeem the gift, they’ll select their wine preferences and then shipments will begin.

The wines are super interesting, mostly old-world selections (European wine regions). The wines are rebottled from full-size bottles using a specially developed nitrogen system which prevents the wine from coming in contact with oxygen during the process.

Each box is really 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 10%.

Why Give This: VineBox offers a unique wine gift experience with its by-the-glass program. Each box contains nine tastes of wine — perfect for the adventure-seeking wine lover.


The VineBox Experience. A unique way to taste wine at home. It’s perfect for anyone who loves wine flights or just likes to sip on a little wine each night. Past themes have included: Compare and Contrast, Vintages and Verticals, Organic Wines, and more.

4. French Wine Club Gift

by SomMailier

Good wine subscription gift

French wine subscriptions in the US are rare. Great French wine clubs offering good value are like unicorns, and SomMailier is one of them. If you’re wondering about their name, it’s a play on the words sommelier and mail, but pronounced like sommelier.

An eclectic but well-curated selection of wine from France’s many regions. It’s a great way to sample better-quality French wine. Some clubs offer inexpensive (bulk) French wine that don’t accurately represent the quality and style of France’s great wine regions — this isn’t one of them.

The founder is a part of the 5th generation of a Bordeaux wine-producing family. He selects and imports French wines that aren’t available anywhere else in the US. He ensures this by buying the wine from his brother’s distributor business located within France. His brother’s company was selected as an approved seller to the French Foreign Ministry, representing the official face of French wine to the whole world.

Why Give This: Excellent quality, premium gift presentation, and good value. The first shipment will be sent out 7-10 days after you order. Delivery times vary.


We enthusiastically recommend this wine subscription gift to anyone who loves French wine or wants to learn more about it.

The packaging is lovely and carefully assembled, making a great presentation. A personalized note is included in the first shipment.


Waited Until the Last minute? It’s free to send a gift notice via email, but be warned, it is sent immediately when you buy the gift.

One of our favorite wine of the month clubs, this Light & Sweet club is the perfect choice for so many wine drinkers who prefer fruity and sweeter wines to drier styles. If you are someone, or know someone, who loves wines like Moscato, Riesling and Gewurztraminer, sign up for this wine club because it's the only one like it out there in the wine club universe.

We strongly support all niche wine clubs. The taste of wine is subjective and we think everyone should drink what they love. Given the high delivery fees from Vinesse, we recommend joining the 12-bottle wine club and have the shipments sent as often as is appropriate.

There aren't a lot of wine club gifts for wine lovers who like their wine on the sweeter side. It's too bad because these wines are food-friendly and also great for drinking before the meal. If your wine lover likes it sweeter (not dessert sweet) than this is an awesome wine club gift.

Good wine subscription gift

Well-suited to wine adventurers of all experience levels, Winc makes a terrific personalized wine gift. This affordable wine subscription gift lets the gift recipient choose whether to rely on Winc’s selections or to pick their own wine each month.

We find the wines at Winc to generally be of much better quality than comparably-priced wines from wine stores and other wine subscription gifts. They offer a broad spectrum of wine regions, grape varieties, blends, and styles, with a heavy focus on California. Around 40% of Winc’s wine selection is priced at $13 per bottle, and the balance is priced $14-46. The wine increases in price as the quality goes up.

Winc set out to change the way we buy wine in America, and they continue to set the bar for what a really good wine of the month club should be. Their members are their most important customers, but their wines are sold in brick-and-mortar stores, restaurants, hotels, and ballparks around the country.

Why Give This: Breadth of wine styles and regions, personalized experience, and convenient online account management. For the health-conscious, Winc offers organic, vegan, natural, and low alcohol wines, too.


Upgrade to a printed gift announcement (pictured). You can have it sent to yourself or directly to your recipient.

The printed notice costs $6 to send and arrives via FedEx Ground. Spend $20 to FedEx Overnight. Orders are shipped Monday through Friday. For same day processing your order must be submitted by 11:00 AM PT.

7. Champagne Club Gift

by Henri's Reserve

Good wine subscription gift

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.

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 You & For Gifts Save $10 on any order and get a free double-hinged corkscrew with your first shipment. Use code NEWMEMBER at checkout.

Good wine subscription gift

The Plonk wine club has always been among our favorites because of the proprietor's preference for quirky but delectable wines. Etty Lewensztain sources interesting wines made from grapes and regions you've never heard of (and some you have). Whether you choose four or twelve bottles you'll be glad you picked Plonk.

Lately we've come to think of Plonk as the "Somm club" that isn't run by a sommelier. With a focus on wines under $30 that will delight any curious wine drinker, we think the value is top notch. Also, unlike most wine clubs, if you're thinking of going red-only or white-only, you'll actually get four different selections (three of each if you upgrade to 12 bottles).

Our Tips for Picking the Perfect Wine Club Subscription Gift

Select Their State. We have complex shipping laws regarding alcohol in the US. Our site helps you shop by picking the state your gift recipient lives in. The menu to select a state is up at the top of the list. The main list will then indicate which states you can ship the gift to.

Pick a Gift with a Nice Presentation. Sure, no wine lover will be unappreciative when they receive a box of wine as a gift — but they’ll be delighted if it arrives decked out for the occasion.

Give at Least Three Months. The idea of a subscription gift is that it keeps on giving. Three months is nice, six months is generous, and a year of wine says you really really care.
