How We Rate The Wine Clubs.

We’re not scientists, but we do have a process.

First:  We catalog all of the best wine clubs.

Our database of wine clubs is quite extensive, and we spend a lot of time keeping it current and updated with pricing, deals, and the specifics of the wine club.

Second:  We buy the wine club.

Yep.  We shell out our own money to get the full experience, and to actually DRINK THE WINE.  (Sure, some smart wine clubs send us free memberships.  That’s always appreciated, but it never affects our review or rating.)

Third:  We discuss and taste wines and the wine club.

(This is the hardest part of the job of making this website for you.  We sacrifice for you.)

All kidding aside, we really do spend a lot of time and effort to give you a thorough and complete review of the wines and the wine clubs.

So – What are we looking for when we review and rate the wine clubs?

Wine Quality.

If you’re buying a wine club for yourself or as a gift, the most important factor is “Does the Wine Taste Great?”.  Who wants to buy bad wine?  You don’t need us for that.


Value doesn’t always mean the “cheapest”.  Value means “you get more than you pay for”.  Sure, we have the best budget or discount wine clubs and wine club discounts.  But, in general, when we say a wine club delivers high value — we mean that it’s a great wine club.

Verify Their Claims.

If a wine club makes a claim about their wine, they’d better deliver on that claim.

Verify The Company and The Fine Print.

One concern that many people have when buying a wine club is the “gotchya” recurring fee clauses.  We’re looking for that and many other elements of the fine print to be sure that you don’t get charged more than you expected, or get another shipment automatically sent to you with out your express knowledge and intention.  (Hey – we’re using our credit card to buy this, too!)

The Overall Experience.

When you’re giving a gift of a wine club, you want to be sure that the gift looks good, and makes the recipient ecstatic when they receive the first shipment of wine.  The packaging should look great, and of course, the wine better make it in one piece.

We don’t stop there.  We’re also looking for:

Wine Brands vs. Less-known Great Wine

Sometimes you want to buy or send wine that has a well-known brand.  Sometimes, you want to uncover those gems that don’t have the big brand recognition, but taste like a million bucks.

Customization Options.

Don’t want to be boxed into a wine club’s plan?  In certain circumstances, you want to customize your wine club membership.  Maybe you want to change the frequency of shipment, or the quantity of bottles per shipment.  Perhaps you refuse to try another Merlot, and need to be sure that your wine club membership can exclude Merlot?  (Sorry for the blatant “Sideways” reference.)

And of course, we’re ALWAYS LOOKING for Deals, Discounts and Special Offers or Promotions.
