Wines are chosen by a team of wine experts who sample over 2,000 bottles a year. Average wine approval is 5 per 100 bottles sampled. Wines come from the finest wineries in the world but quality remains to be those seen in wine chain stores. There is also the absence of high-quality wines with 90+ ratings.
What Wine Insiders lack in its membership program, it more than makes up for the number of gift programs. However, this does not provider customers the option of selecting individual bottles. Wine options are limited to all red or all white and mixed selections.

Wine Insiders Review
Wine Insiders does not offer much in terms of its membership program. It only has a single membership option but makes up for the variety of gift programs available for wine shoppers. What’s particularly great about its wine package offers is its Premiere package that comes 12 wine bottles that ships at 1 cent. Just don’t expect any rare or collector wine selections as quality seems to be at par with large wine retailer chains. Overall, Wine Insider does offer good quality wines at bargain prices. What it lacks in quality it more than makes up for the number of bottles that comes with each package.
