Best Quarterly Case Wine Clubs

Best Quarterly Case Wine Clubs

The Top 5 quarterly case wine of the month clubs

Last updated: March 25, 2017

Sussing out the best quarterly case wine club isn’t the easiest job in the world. There’s a lot of noise from the company that brought this type of wine club to the US market (Laithwaites) and there are many imitators trying to get in on the action. We love Quarterly Case Clubs because they are the most cost-effective way, as a consumer, to receive wine in the mail and because fewer shipments is more friendly to the environment (less fuel used on deliveries and less packaging).

We’ve located the signal among the noise—the best case clubs—and recommend these quarterly wine clubs, each offering an option to buy a case of wine every 3 months, and have it conveniently delivered to your door. We definitely emphasize quality and consistency in these selections, so stock your cellar and enjoy wine more often without breaking the bank.

    Bonus: Get a FREE double-hinged corkscrew with your first shipment. If you've never used one, you'll see why it's the best way to open a bottle of wine!

    Overview: Tired of ho-hum wines but not sure where to start? Try this wine club! The Plonk wine clubs have always been among our favorites because of the proprietor's preference for quirky but delectable wines made from grapes and regions you've never heard of (and some you have). Whether you choose two, four, or twelve bottles you'll be glad you picked Plonk. Also, if you're thinking of going red-only or white-only, you'll actually get (two or four) different selections.

    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.

    Limited Time Offer
    Get a $40 tasting kit for just $6.95 when you sign up today. No coupon needed.

    Overview: This is a 12-bottle case personalized wine club. The "tasting kit" experience is deceiving and should be ignored, because once you rate a case of wine from them, the wines come in at a pretty good value and generally in line with what you like in your wine. Overall this is a wine club which offers the most flexibility and convenience of any other... now they just need to get the initial experience straightened out.

    What We Love: Their best feature is total control of your account online without having to contact customer service — change the contents of your shipment, change your shipment size, have your next shipment sent exactly when you want it, or even cancel online.

    Could Be Better: The initial experience is a little rough. The wines offered in the $6.95 tasting kit are extreme tasting (this is likely the best way to identify the boundaries of your palate) but it leaves a not-so-great first impression. To make matters worse, they send out your first shipment of wine only 24 hours after you receive your tasting kit, which means your first case has nothing to do with preferences set by your tasting kit experience. After you rate your first set of wines, the selection improves dramatically and the wine become a good fit for your palate. This experience should be improved so that the first case that is shipped reflects the input from your tasting kit experience.

    Limited Time Offer
    Introductory offer: $69.99 for 12 bottles of wine! Also choose between free bonus gifts: 3 bottles of wine or a deluxe, lever-action corkscrew.

    Overview: The WSJWine club was one of the first 12-bottle case clubs offered up as a way to get your quarterly wine fix at value-focused prices. Over the years we've gone back and forth one whether or not they deliver a good value, but for some time we've thought their $12 wine selections really can't be beat for value, especially as prices keep rising at the grocery store. Take advantage of their introductory offer of just $69.99 for a case, but be warned, you are signing up for recurring shipments at a much higher price.

    What We Love: They have one of the best line-ups of introductory offers for wine clubs we've seen.

    Could Be Better: A more customized selection geared toward the Wall Street Journal's specific audience.
