While we can objectively rank wine clubs by their features, different types of wine drinkers might prioritize different features, so one size does not fit all. By considering who might be looking for a wine club, and why, we can steer you toward a wine club that will meet your specific needs and wants, not everyone else's.

Below you'll find our Top 3 wine clubs by each type of wine club buyer. If you've already selected which state you're shipping the wine club to, your results reflect wine clubs that can ship to your location.

FYI: I find great wine deals so you don’t have to. To keep me on the hunt, I earn a commission when you buy wine based on my recommendations.

Best Overall

A good wine club tries to be as many things to as many people as it can. The All-Around score highlights wine clubs that go out of their way to deliver across all wine club features. The most features are included in this rating profile because we are looking for wine clubs that are best in as many classes as possible.

It's very difficult to get a five-star rating from us in the All-Around category — only 6 wine clubs have managed to do this and 3 of them are offered by the same company. We strongly recommend these 6 wine clubs.

New to Wine Clubs

If you're new to wine clubs, your biggest concerns are probably whether you'll like wine picked out for you by someone else and whether a subscription service is worth changing how you currently buy your wine. To help smooth the switch, our ratings for newcomers focus on the strength of a wine club's satisfaction guarantee, how many convenience-oriented features they offer, and the overall quality of the wine that gets delivered.
