The Best Wine Clubs of 2019
Aug 27, 2019

Rosé (and red and white) all day. If wine delivered to your door every month sounds like a dream come true, consider one of these wine subscription services. Each plan is customizable, so you can try new varieties whether you’re a certified sommelier or total newbie. If you’re notorious for your commitment issues, there are even memberships that let you try a glass before buying a whole bottle. Want organic, non-GMO, eco-friendly, or small-batch wines? No problem. Plans come at every price point, too, so there’s no need to break the bank to feed your burgeoning (or well-established) wine habit.

1. Vinebox
Can’t commit to a full bottle? Don't want to make too many decisions? Join Vinebox, where you’ll get a selection of seasonal wines by the glass with each shipment. Each wine is hand-picked by a team of sommeliers, so think of it like a wine tasting shipped straight to your door. You can sign up for the quarterly plan, ($79 per box, delivered every three months) where you get to taste nine new wines per box. Plus, receive a $15 dollar credit for full-sized bottles if you taste something you really like.
2. Plonk Wine Club
Plonk wants members to expand their tastes by introducing sustainably grown boutique wines and less known varieties of grapes. Plonk selects wines from both new and historic locations around the world, from Oregon to Slovenia and pretty much everywhere in between. All Plonk wines are organic and have no artificial colors or sugars, plus their grapes are never treated with pesticides, so you can rest assured that each bottle is the best quality.
Starting at $74.99 per month, Secco Wine Club is perfect for the eco- and health-conscious wine-lover. All wines are organic, vegan, gluten-free, non-GMO, and have no sugar or chemicals. Each bottle is sourced from small family-owned businesses who use dry-farming techniques to grow their grapes, saving more water than the traditional irrigation approach. Club members receive complementary shipping, member-only discounts, and exclusive event invitations.
4. Henri's Reserve
If you’re more into bubbly, Henri’s is one of the few champagne-only clubs you can join. All its champagne is sourced from private estates in France, and many of the featured winemakers are also listed on menus in popular upscale restaurants, like French Laundry, Eleven Madison Park and Per Se. Club members can choose between a monthly, bi-monthly or quarterly membership, with two bottles of champagne in each shipment.
5. Winc
Winc is the custom wine subscription of your dreams. New members start with a six-question quiz that asks about your food preferences, from how you like your coffee to how adventurous you are with food and drink choices. You can then rate each wine you try—the more bottles you rate, the more accurate your shipments will be to your preferences (in case you needed an excuse to drink more wine). Winc also offers free shipping and no membership fees or commitments, so you can test it out totally risk-free. An added bonus? The Instagram-worthy packaging is 100% compostable.
6. GrapeSeed
This website is the farm-to-table option of the wine world. GrapeSeed works directly with a community of local winemakers, enlisting them to create wines exclusively for the GrapeSeed label. All of the winemakers come from are small to mid sized vineyards with small production, so members of the club get artisanal wine with no middleman involved. Boxes are sent quarterly and subscriptions range from the $150 dollar per box “Selections” to the $360 per box “Cellar Select” which includes the most extravagant and most collectable wines.
7. Wine of the Month Club
Wine of the Month is the original wine subscription. This dependable service has been around since 1972, and was the first company to send wine in the mail. Each box is only $24.96 for two bottles and comes with a newsletter full of detailed information about each wine—everything from where the grapes are sourced from to best food pairings.
