Review of WSJwine
WSJWine from The Wall Street Journal is different from most wine clubs in that it only offers wine by the case. Every three months your delivery will include 12 bottles of wine: all white, all red, or mixed.
For a limited time, you can save $170 on 15 bottles of red wine rather than the regular 12 bottles plus free gift.
The starting price is $69.99, which ends up being
$5.84 for every bottle of wine in the initial shipment. Unlike some groups, delivery isn't included - be ready to spend an extra $19.99 with each delivery.
It is possible to stop anytime (yes, even after your first order!) and even skip a delivery or change your wine choice.
Like the majority of wine clubs, tasting notes for each included bottle come with your order. Your first delivery also comes with a binder to hold your tasting notes in order as well as an introductory gift of a wine corking set. The more clubs that I join, the more that I like this tasting notes binder because it's a nice way to keep track of which wines I liked as well as what I should pair them with.
The white wine case features a Riesling from Washington State, a Spanish lime & peach Aperitif, and other white wines from New Zealand, France, Italy and Napa Valley. The red wine case includes California Cabernet and Pinot Noir, an Argentinean Malbec, and Bordeaux from France. The mixed case includes 4 different whites and 4 different reds, some doubled up, for a total of 12 bottles.
Savings of at least 20% off normal wine prices with every case delivery.I ordered the WSJWine Club for myself, but you could certainly order it as a gift. A couple of considerations are that the box is very heavy with 12 bottles in it, there is no opportunity to include a gift message, and you cannot schedule the delivery date. Deliveries are made through a special local delivery service and although you may not have access to tracking information online, you are called 24 in advance of the delivery.
One of the perks of the WSJWine Club is that when you like a wine in your wine club, you may buy more of it direct from WSJWine. The prices are reasonable, and you will already have the tasting notes to go along with the wine. Shipping is every 3 months, and future shipments are charged at $139.99 ($11.67/bottle).
