“Exclusive, hand-picked wines from the best places on earth: These wines aren’t available at your local store. This is the stuff that you stumble across on a backroad trip through Tuscany, the gems that local restaurants save for a special occasion.”
Started in 2015, Vinebox is one of the newer arrivals to the wine of the month club scene but has already made a big splash. The subscription offers quarterly releases which start at $72. Receive 9 different wines by the glass based on your preferences. The unique “by the class” option allows you to savor a greater variety of wines, plus you are not “stuck” with an entire bottle of wine that you do not care for. Enjoy the samples offered, then order more of your favorites.

“Delicious handcrafted wines, delivered straight to your doorstep.”
Formerly known as Club W, Winc starts out by asking you six questions about the flavors you love. The wine of the month club then uses your responses to curate a selection of wines for you. Winc offers monthly delivery of wines that will suit your palate. Subscribers can also rate the wines that they receive so that the club can further refine the selections that will be offered.

“Since 1990, it’s been our wine club’s mission to help artisan wineries share their small-batch wines with wine enthusiasts everywhere. At The California Wine Club we happen to think these wines simply taste better than the mass-produced wines that dominate store shelves.”
One of the longest-running wine clubs in the United States is the California Wine Club. The team visits real working wineries to meet the artisan winemakers and then invites them to share their favorite wines with club members. The California Wine Club offers five different wine club levels, which they call “series,” and vary in price and wine selection. This wine of the month club also offers gift services and packaged gift options for weddings and other events.
