The 9 Best 12-Bottle Wine Clubs

Best Quarterly Wine Clubs

Last updated: October 8, 2019

Please note: if you join or give a wine club after clicking our links we might earn a commission.

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.

Naked Wines isn’t really a wine club the way you think of one, but it’s a personalized wine buying service that you pay into on a monthly subscription so… we treat it like one. It also happens to be the most interesting wine club we’ve come across in a while.

The list of things we love about Naked Wines is long, but here are some of our favorite bits: the wines we tried were excellent and priced exceptionally well; the winemakers interact with commenters on a regular basis; you can make this wine club anything you want it to be.

Winc set out to change the wine industry by finding new ways to get better value to wine drinkers who spend less than $15 a bottle — and they’re succeeding. By delivering a broad range of wine which appeals to every palate, Winc is a standout wine of the month club.

We love how they go above and beyond to reward loyal customers with substantial savings and invitations to a premium level program. No other wine club offers this level of loyalty rewards, or this much fun! Also, as time has passed under wine director Ryan Zotovich, the selection of premium wines has both grown in selection and quality.

When you give a Winc subscription, you are giving wine credits which can be redeemed by your favorite wine lover. They'll then set up their own account so Winc's personalization engine can get to work on learning what they love. Opt for a fancy gift announcement on the big day for a little extra dough.

3. 90+ Wine Club

by Wired For Wine ®

Among all of the case clubs (12 bottles, typically shipped quarterly), this 90+ International wine club is among the best two deals. The other focuses only on California wine, but this one takes you on a journey around the world. Enjoy eclectic wines at the best prices you'll find.

It's so easy to get into a wine rut and stick with what you know. Wired For Wine ® helps you break out of that rut in a low-cost, satisfaction guaranteed way so you can find new wines to love. Also, when compared with similarly-priced case clubs, this one stands out for wine quality in a big way.

4. Case Club

by The California Wine Club

Among all of the case clubs (12 bottles, typically shipped quarterly), this California wine club offering selections from boutique wineries is one of the two best deals. The other club delivers 90+ point wine from around the world.

We asked The California Wine Club for a case club deal and they made one! And now you get to save a TON of money on their already affordable Premier Series wines.

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).

6. WSJwine Wine Club

by Wall Street Journal Wine

For You Join today and get 12 bottles of wine PLUS two bonus bottles and two stemless crystal wine glasses for just $69.99. Until Jun 30. Click for This Deal.

This 12-bottle case of wine club really jumpstarted this type of affordable wine subscription in the US and features value-focused white and red wines from around the world. Their $12 international wine selections typically offer better value in white wine than red.

We've received many shipments of wine from the WSJwine Wine Club over the years, but we continue to hold the club in relatively low esteem. It's perfect for a wine lover who wants an inexpensive selection of International wine delivered to their door every quarter. It's not a good fit for anyone who likes wine that sells above $15 at the grocery store.

The Laithwaites Wine 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 in general we think their $12 selections are stronger for white wine than red. 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.

Each shipment of this wine club includes a selection of wine from a single wine region. Sometimes that region is defined narrowly, like Southern France, and sometimes it’s more broad, like South America.

This is a fun way to discover wine regions around the world in an affordable way. Vinesse’s wine tasting notes all include cellaring information, which we find lacking in most other subscriptions’ educational materials.
