MORE Uncorked Wine Club
With a boom in mail order wine clubs, MORE Uncorked is doing it right by developing a specific niche that is defined by their parent company: MORE Magazine. MORE Magazine is a women’s magazine covering everything from career to spirituality and marketed to women influencers “of style and substance”. The wine club, therefore, is also looking at women of the same caliber: women in wine. An Alliance between the magazine and Women of the Vine, this club curates members’ mixed or all-red shipments of wines made by boutique labels run by women. With free shipping, excellent perks, and a focus on an under discussed segment of the winemaking world, this club is a great option with quarterly shipments of four, six or 12 bottles.

California Wine Club – Full Review
Around since 1990 and with a majority of its members being in the club for at least seven years, there’s no doubt that The California Wine Club is a major player in the wine club game. Members enjoy all white, all red, or mixed shipments of small, family produced California wines either monthly, every other month, or quarterly. The Club’s Signature Series includes the option of two, three, or four bottles per shipment. While California wines are the focus, there is an option to receive wines from around the world through the international series and many members have two memberships to enjoy the best of both worlds. The most popular option, the Premium Series, is a great way to pretty much always have wine in your fridge with 2 bottles per month.

Plonk Wine Club – Full Review
Whether you only like Pinot Noir or you want to try all kinds of wines, there’s a good chance Plonk has a membership for you. There are two unique types of subscriptions: a curated mix put together by Plonk that exhibits small batch, unique, terroir-driven wines that are made from sustainably grown grapes and often natural, organic and/or biodynamic; and the grape variety option. With the second, members select Cabernet, Pinot Noir, or Sauvignon Blanc and each month receive a bottle of their selected varietal plus a wine that exhibits something similar to that varietal, like texture or body.
Tasting Room Lot18 Wine Club – Full Review
Tasting Room by Lot18 is garnering a tremendous amount of attention in the wine world and beyond. The club’s unique, thorough approach to wine clubs is complex in the right ways and simplistic in the right ways giving wine lovers a perfectly balanced experience. Upon signing up members receive a shipment of six mini bottles of wine to be tasted while online. Tastings are done in pairs and simply ask which wine is preferred… no need to be able to describe like a somm. At the end the member is given a thorough profile of their preferences in wine including regions, climate, and varietals they’ll prefer as well as what to eat with the wines they love. Every three months they are sent a shipment of 12 wines for the same fair price (about $14/bottle) and continue to rate them to make sure that all bottles meet their tastes, even as those tastes change.
Wine.com Wine Club – Full Review
It only makes sense that massive online wine retailer wine.com would put together a wine club. Their take on wine clubs is a monthly, two bottle subscription for newbies, more experienced drinkers, and wine experts. Each level comes with materials aimed at the type of people who would join it, with the lowest level having education pieces about regions and varietals and the higher levels coming with information on pairing and tasting notes. With excellent, knowledgeable customer service reps; simple options for the club; and shipping to nearly all fifty states, this is an excellent option for a wine club membership.

Members can swap bottles, delay shipments, skip shipments, and cancel prior to each shipment. If members do not do anything they receive their box as scheduled. Memberships are ongoing. The club allows members to receive 48 bottles a year - a little less than a bottle a week, perfect for any wine lover.
