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.

Mine just arrived and I’ve already loaded it up with some of my favorite Old Vine Zinfandel from Campus Oaks out in Lodi, CA. My wine crate (as you can see in the pictures below) is from Rodney Strong and looks great in my wine cellar.
Special thanks to the California Wine Club for making such cool freebies available to all their wine club members! If you’re not a member of the California Wine Club yet, be sure to read our California Wine Club Review to see what you’re truly missing
I just got word from the Gold Medal Wine Club that they are having a special upper-level wine sale where you can save up to 45% off their most highly rated wines! These are all 91 to 97 point rated wines that have ALL won gold medals. These hard to find gems are now on sale at some seriously low prices! Hurry though because there are very limited quantities available!
And as an extra bonus, when you buy 2 or more cases of wine (12 bottles a case), you’ll get FREE SHIPPING! That’s an extra $70+ in savings! Pretty cool, huh?
My favorite wine on their special offer list is the Frazier Winery 2008 Cabernet Franc from Napa Valley that sells for $52 at the winery, but is on sale through the Gold Medal Wine Club website for only $31.20! Is that an awesome deal or what?
These freshly bottled, new-vintage rosés are the wine equivalent of juicy spring strawberries. They’re a once-a-year, spring-and-summer pleasure. The time is NOW — and if you act fast, you’ll SAVE over 20% on this just-landed collection from Provence, Tuscany and beyond.
Believe me when I say that these flavor-packed pinks taste as good as they look. Enjoy the latest release of Wine Spectator favorite Domaine de Paris, rocking the traditional, trés chic Provençal bottle. Your second French classic, Abbesse de Loire, brims with crushed red berry fruit and really satisfies with seafood. From California’s cool Arroyo Grande Valley, world-class winemaker Eric Hickey sends his sophisticated Pinot Noir (that’s right, Pinot in pink, you’ve gotta try it). Last not least (and after much pleading) we’ve managed to get you Tuscan maestro Paolo Masi’s rare Rosato. Bursting with vibrant cherry, this gently pressed Sangiovese hits the spot on a hot day. You could even pair it with BBQ!
But get in on this special offer while you can because the discounted price of $139.99 (instead of $176.88) won’t last forever!
Okay all you Bordeaux lovers, here’s your chance to get some amazing bottles of gold-medal winning Bordeaux for only $15 a bottle from the Laithwaites Wine Club. This is one of those EXCLUSIVE offers only made public to industry insiders such as myself, but I hate keeping secrets, so I always let the cat out of the bag
These offers don’t last long though, so get in on the deal while you still can by CLICKING HERE.
If you aren’t familiar with Bordeaux, there are two main types: those that are always in the news (which not many people can afford), and the wines we almost never hear about — from small, family-owned châteaux that craft award-winning wines made for drinking, not trading like stocks.
Today’s offer from the Laithwaites Wine Club brings you 12 gold-medal, small-estate finds from three of the best vintages ever — for JUST $15 a bottle. Only a few cases remain though, so get in on this special offer while you can.
I just received an email from one of my favorite wine clubs, the original Wine of the Month Club, with an amazing deal on Australian Shiraz. Here’s what Paul Kalemkiarian had to say about this one-time special offer…
“This is solid Shiraz (Syrah to us North Americans). But Australian Shiraz has a wonderful blueberry component that separates it from wines from the South of France or California. This is real Australian Shiraz made in the real Australian style, not cut with sugar–just honest to goodness Shiraz character. One of the attractive components of this was its subtlety. Many are so jammy, you could put them on toast (BTW, I do not consider that a flaw, just a style). This wine is leaner with more cedar and spice. Either way, an incredible deal at $4.99! Buy as much or as little as you want. I bought every drop that came in from Australia, so when it’s gone, it’s gone!”
These special offers from the Wine of the Month Club don’t last forever, so be sure to get in on it while you can!
For those of you that know me well, I’ve been a fan of the Uncorked Ventures Wine Club for years now. In fact, the founders (Matt Krause & Mark Aselstine) contacted me years ago to discuss their desire to start their own wine club and I have felt a close kinship to them ever since then.
COUPON CODE THAT SAVED ME $200
When I first signed up for their Explorations Wine Club, I used the coupon code 6xHk7wJ! to save $200 off my one year subscription.
UNCORKED VENTURES PROMO CODE THAT SAVED ME $171
That promo code didn’t work for me this time though. Instead I used the Uncorked Ventures Coupon Code FIFTEEN and received 15% off my one year subscription to their Special Selections Wine Club.
Here’s what my $171 savings looked like as I went through their shopping cart…
I’m REALLY looking forward to receiving my first Special Selections Wine Club shipment from Uncorked Ventures and will be sure to post about it when it arrives.
I just got word from the WSJ Wine Club that they are having a special SPRING SALE and I knew everyone here would want to hear about it. Here’s what the good people at the Wall Street Journal Wine Club had to say about this special offer:
“The WSJ wine Spring Collection has been carefully put together to bring you the season’s best drinking — at the best possible price (just $12.50 a bottle).”
Having reviewed wine clubs for years now, I can tell you that $12.50 a bottle is a great deal for award winning wines from around the world. In fact, many of their wines have already won serious critical acclaim, including their exclusive Michael Mondavi Chardonnay earned 90 Points from Wine Enthusiast for its juicy orchard fruit and creamy texture, and Audrey Françon’s powerful, dark-fruited Côtes-du-Rhône-Villages just won a top gold medal. My own favorite red in the case is Simona Barbanera’s cherry-rich gold-medal Chianti Riserva from 2007, a vintage with “beautifully ripe, seductive wines.” according to the well known magazine The Wine Advocate.
“You’ll also enjoy top-rated northern Italian Pinot Grigio, Washington legend Charles Smith’s chocolaty Syrah, the new vintage of Opi Sadler’s flagship Malbec and more.”
With this special offer, you’ll get to choose all whites, all reds or the full spring mix — and you will SAVE $41 on 12 guaranteed wine hits. But to take advantage of this offer, you need to act FAST as they have limited cases at this special price.
Here’s the email I received detailing this year’s Spring Special:
Last week I signed back up for the California Wine Club Premier Club and am so glad I did! As a thank you they sent me a special 10% off coupon that ANYONE can use on their next order.
To take advantage of this special promo code, all you need to do is enter the following: THANKS and you’ll automatically save 10% off your entire order. Cool, huh? So be sure to fill up your cart with lots of wine so you can save LOTS!
