We're a family owned web site that provides quality wine club reviews and recommendations of only the best wine clubs in the Untied States and Canada. If you're looking for wine clubs outside of North America, please see our international wine clubs page.
Our goal is to make your life easier by testing every wine club we recommend, so that you know you're only signing up with a top notch wine of the month club. While we have thoroughly enjoyed the process, all the wine :-) and the remunerations we've received for every new wine club member we send, as we've been doing these wine club reviews for years now, we're constantly surprised at how few GOOD wine clubs there really are out there. Point in case, we've run into a fair number of wine clubs, that claim to be the best wine clubs, that we will NEVER recommend to you, because the wines and/or customer service were horrible!
Rest assured though, the wine clubs we recommend, whether they be the California Wine Club or Cellars Wine Club or another wine club have all been pre-screened and received rave wine club reviews from not only us, but from other wine club members that have also enjoyed their wine club membership and the wines they've received.

If you’re looking for some suggestions and you’re a Chardonnay fan, then I found just the wine for you: The 2011 vintage of Yelverton Reserve Chardonnay. This is a premium Aussie Chardonnay from Margaret River’s most prestigious estate. This rich, French barrel-aged Chardonnay has impeccable quality, finesse and balance with ripe tropical fruit flavors and hints of creamy brioche. It’s the best 2011 Chardonnay I’ve come across so far this year. And right now it’s well priced at just under $20 a bottle. Now that’ve mentioned it here though, it won’t last long, so be sure to get some while they still have it.

I just received my October 2013 wine club shipment from the Plonk Wine Club and had to share with all my followers what you’ll find in this months shipment.
As you can see in our Plonk Wine Club Review, the Plonk Wine Club is our #1 pick for organic and biodynamic wines. We’ll be officially adding them to our Top 10 Best Wine Clubs list in the near future, see keep an eye out for them.
In the meantime, here are the wines I received in my October 2013 shipment from the Plonk Wine Club:
+ 2012 Red Blend of Carignane, Grenache and Syrah from A Simple Machine Winery in Mendocino, California
+ 2011 Cabernet Franc from Chinon, Loire Valley, France
+ 2008 Carignane and Grenache blend from Xabec Montsant in Spain
+ 2008 Tempranillo from Bodegas Aruspide Ardales Winery in Spain
The California Wine Club came out with a special 10% off coupon code that also gave you shipping for only $1 and I took FULL ADVANTAGE of it by picking up a case of my favorite wine: Campus Oaks Old Vine Zinfandel from Lodi, California.
The California Wine Club did a great job at packing the case of wine to ensure there was absolutely no breakage on its journey from California to North Carolina, where I live these days. As you can read on our California Wine Club Review page, we’ve never received a damaged or broken bottle from the California Wine Club. Some wine clubs will actually use cheap cardboard when they ship you your wines. I’m happy to report that just isn’t the case with the California Wine Club.
As with all shipments from the California Wine Club, the first thing you’ll find when you open up your box is their usual promotional material. Sometimes they include coupon codes that will save you up to 30% off your next purchase. These promo codes are NOT available anywhere else online…unless I’ve posted them to my website that is I definitely recommend that use one of these California Wine Club Coupons anytime you plan on making a purchase from the California Wine Club.
After you receive your shipment from the California Wine Club, or any of the wine clubs we recommend, be sure to let the bottles settle for a while before opening them. The reasoning behind this is that they most likely are suffering from bottle shock and the wine inside won’t taste as good as it would if you let it sit for a couple of days. I used to work at UPS and I can tell you this, packages are THROWN onto trucks because loaders are encouraged to be FAST not careful. So, always give your bottles a couple of days to settle before enjoying them.
The reason why I love the Campus Oaks Old Vine Zinfandel so much is because this delicious red wine is produced and bottled by Gnekow Family Winery which hand selects grapes from their 80+ year old vines. It’s one of my favorite all time wines because its got a wonderful fruit forward nose of cherries and raspberries, complemented by a jammy mid-palate of mixed berries with just a hint of vanilla wrapped up in oak, ending with a delightfully silky smooth finish. And don’t forget to couple it with some aged cheddar cheese and some salty crackers for the most amazing flavor experience ever!
So, in summary, when you’re ready to make your wine purchases for the holidays and your wine gift purchases, be sure to get your wines from the California Wine Club.
Heads up everyone! Today is your last day to get in on the California Wine Club $1 shipping special offer receive 10% off your order!
