The California Wine Club – Premier Club Review
We reviewed this club many times over, and have enjoyed every delivery. In this review post, we'll share our unboxing videos, photos of the shipments we've received as well as our thoughts on sending this as a gift – and tons more.
If you're looking for a quick summary review, here it is: We love this club and the company behind it.
This “Premier Club” is an excellent choice for anyone who wants to get the lowest price possible, but still get premium wine. You are never “locked in” to anything and can simply purchase deliveries on a schedule, or fixed quantity that you desire.

2 bottles of hand-selected wines from California artisinal wineries. Great as a personal subscription or a gift.
This club, the Premier Series is the most popular “Wine of the Month Club” offering from the company, The California Wine Club. (Learn more about The California Wine Club.
Why is it the most popular?
First, the price. When you buy wine for yourself, or send wine as a gift — budget is often a concern. So, this Premier Series comes in around $40 a delivery.
Second, the wine. Even if you're budget-concious, you want good wine! And, if you're sending wine, it better be delicious. That's the other great part of this club: It's price is low, yet the quality of the wine is high!
(Yes, you can buy more expensive wines from their other product offerings, but this club is popular because it's at the right price, and provides the right wine!)
The Premier Series from The California Wine Club always impresses both as a gift and a personal wine club membership. Wines are hand-selected from artisinal wineries.
- Super popular
- Excellent wine
- Value priced
- Nice "extras" in the membership
- Price does not include shipping and handling
The California Wine Club is a family-owned business that takes pride in selecting wine from small, family-owned wineries. Each wine is backed by a 100% guarantee from the owners, Bruce and Pam Boring. The club has a very personal feel on both its site and through its customers service.
The Premier Series is a good choice as both a personal wine club and especially as a gift. At its price point for 2 bottles (currently $40.45 plus shipping and handling) you will get quality wine plus all of the information you could possibly want about the vineyard that produced it. The monthly newsletter, Uncorked, is a full color publication that not only tells you more about the wine but also includes recipes, general wine information, and pairing help. I wouldn't mind reading the newsletter every month even if I didn't have the wine that goes with it!
You can choose from various gift options including having wine sent monthly, every other month, or quarterly. You can also choose a bottle each of red and white, 2 bottles or red, or 2 bottles of white. Not that if you choose 2 bottles of one color, you will get 2 bottles of the same wine.
The California Wine Club runs various specials from month to month, and we always have the latest coupons for them.
The California Wine Club Premier Series is one of the most popular clubs that we have reviewed due to the high quality of the wines, the gift options, the “extras” that come with the shipments, and the price of the wine for the value.
