What Are They About?

Cellars Wine Club was initially conceived as an internet wine club.  It was founded in 1999 near Seattle and quickly grew into a retail site.  It is considered one of the best west coast wine clubs.  The club has twelve options for wine lovers of all budgets and experience, all of which have multiple options allowing for members to personalize the club personally to them.  Additionally, members can sign up for more than one club depending on their interest.  For example, someone might want a single bottle subscription to complement their sparkling wine subscription.

Cellars is made up of wine lovers and love to turn others onto the joy of wine.  They like to share wines that are already beloved and finding those they believe are the next best thing.

Cellars believes in the importance of strong relationships on every side of the business, from those in the industry to its customers and the service shows.  Cellars has a team of experts, plethora of local wineries with which to work allowing it to have and stick to its “no bad bottle guarantee”.

Why it Work & What Could be Better

Why is Works
  • The Choices – Cellars provides twelve different club options but unlike many clubs with more than a few options, the clubs have varied foci allowing members to find exactly what they want in a wine club – from a focus on sparkling wine to high rated ones.  Add this to the fair prices and members can mix and match for the perfect wine by mail experience.  Choices also include frequency and make up of shipments!
  • No Hidden Fees – No membership fees, no cancellation fees, no shipping fees – we love clubs that are priced as they appear.
  • The Ability To Layer – Rather than coordinate a variety of clubs, members can layer memberships – a single bottle red and a sparkling, or the case plus sweet – without breaking the bank.
  • No Duplicates! – Unless joining the case club, Cellars Wine Club never sends duplicates.
  • Free Shipping – Cellars Wine Club ships wines for free using ground service.  Members can opt for expedited shipping at an additional cost.  Shipments arrive on or around the 20th of the month.
  • Transparent, Informative WebsiteThe Cellars Wine Club website is easy to read, navigate, understand and the clubs are laid out plainly and simply.  No trying to figure out how many bottles or how often they come.  And, no figuring out how much you will be charged.

What Could Be Better
  • Duplicate Free Cases – We don’t have gripes with Cellars Wine Club but if we could change anything it would be the addition of a duplicate free case club.

FAQ

When Does My Subscription End?

Cellars Wine Club allows members to have an ongoing club until they cancel or to set a predetermined number of shipments to receive before their membership ends.

How Can I Know Exactly How Much I Will Be Charged?

Club prices are clearly marked on the website, Cellars Wine Club picks up the shipping so all you’ll have to apply is your state’s applicable sales tax.

Can I order this as a gift?

Cellars Wine Club makes a great choice for a gift thanks to its easy pricing and choices.  Just make sure you let the receiver know — U.S. law requires that someone 21-years-old or older sign for deliveries of alcohol.
