These can be used by the recipient to join the wine club of their choice, or to buy individual bottles of wine from Wine of the Month Club.


Some people don't like giving gift certificates, but you can also give the gift of a wine club via The California Wine Club or Gold Medal Wine Club.

The California Wine Club

To give the gift of The California Wine Club, simply go to CAWineClub.com, pick the club you wish to give as a gift (their Premier Club at $39 is a top seller), then create and send an e-card that lets them know it is on the way.


Gold Medal Wine Club

Gold Medal Wine Club also offers e-cards (over 25 different designs). After designing your card, you can print it (to hand deliver) or download a PDF to email it to the recipient.
