Review of Wine of the Month Club

Every wine club in existence started after this company, The Wine of the Month Club - they are the original wine club. (The even own the registered trademark for "Wine of the Month Club"!)

Since 1972, they've been delivering delicious wines at an exceptional value, with customer satisfaction their number one priority. I'm really impressed by the owner, Paul Kalemkiarian (the son of the original founder), who personally guarantees your satisfaction. (In fact, he gives his personal email address to ensure you can always reach him, day or night, with any concerns.)

1. Risk Free.
Paul doesn't want you to ever pay for wine you don't like. If you have an issues, problems, or simply don't like the wine, he'll replace it or refund your money.

2. Personal Guide.
Consider Paul your personal sommalier, who hand-picks the best wines within your price range and gives you his expert suggestion. That's what he does every month when he tastes over 400 different wines, before selecting your wines each month.

3. Wines He's Proud Of.
Paul wants you to be another "raving fan" of his wine club, and only sends you wines he is personally proud to share with his friends and family. You can be certain you're getting great wine.

4. Excellent Education.
With each shipment, you get a full education all about the wine, the winery and wine maker, the region and recipes. Plus, he creates tons of educational videos that explores the different wines he tastes -- and you get a video to explain each of the wines in your shipment!

5. Beautiful Packaging.
Your first shipment is delivered in a gorgeous box, providing a wonderful first impression.

Buy for yourself, or buy as a gift.
When you buy as a gift, you simply select the club you want to purchase and the number of shipments (and frequency of delivery), and prepay for the whole thing, including shipping. Gifts Includes shipping, gift wrap and hand written card.

But, when you buy for yourself, you simply "pay as you go", and shipping is added after, based on the actual shipping costs. (There is no markup on shipping.)
