Wine clubs are monthly or quarterly services that deliver a series of wine bottles to your home. In lieu of shopping for your own wine, these clubs offer either customized selections tailored to your preferences, or they provide curated collections to build interest for interesting regions or varietals.

Best for wine aficionados, wine clubs allow subscribers to sample a wide array of wine types they might not be exposed to normally. For enthusiasts, this means that they will be able to sort through an array of options, including the region of origin, the rating of the vintage, and the method and process of grape selection. Wine club memberships are also great gifts for friends who love wine.

When choosing a wine club, consider the number of bottles in every shipment, membership and shipping fees, customization options, and whether there are different membership options. While certain clubs set a strict rule of two bottles per shipment, others are more lenient. Some permit between one and six per shipment, while others will deliver any number below 12. Membership fees, on the other hand, can vary widely from $37 to $70 per month, or more, depending on the membership option and the wine club.

Before finally deciding on a wine club membership, look at the fine print. Is there a satisfaction guarantee? Is there a contract? If so, is it for a set length of time? What is the cancellation policy? Are there shipping costs?
