Wine Rating

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.


Gift Programs

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.

Premier Package

15 wine bottles at $89.99 (save $239.85)

Wine Insiders Review

Wine Insiders offers an excellent value wine club membership with a low introductory price.   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 unique bottles, it more than makes up for the number and variety of bottles that comes with each package.

Do not order from these people! I have tried 3 times not to cancel my subscription. Each time it says cancelled but then a month later they charge me again. It got so bad I am contacting my bank. DO NOT BUY.

I just received my 1st order from "Wine Insiders". After not hearing from them for 2 days after making my order, I found out via chat that my order would be held up for a couple of weeks due to a "back order". The back order was a cheap corkscrew, which I told them to forget about. The wine included a bottle of "Freschello Vino Bianco" which is an extremely cheap supermarket wine in Italy. When I say cheap, I mean $2.36 including tax. Not euros, but US dollars. Their wine is touted as expensive wine direct from the growers, which in this case is pure t crap. You think you are getting a decent price for decent wine at $80/case. But if all of it is as cheap as the Freschello, that makes it... Read More

I would not recommend Wine Insiders Wine Club. I ordered six bottles each for myself and the other as a holiday gift. The wine was in transit almost two weeks and every bottle was terrible, i.e. weak, foul tasting and not what was advertised. I contacted Wine Insiders and they are not honoring their guarantee which indicates the following directly from their web site: "Every bottle that we sell comes with our Double Satisfaction Guarantee: Every bottle will arrive in perfect condition, or we'll immediately send you a replacement. And, you will love every wine we send, or we'll send you a free alternative, or give you a refund." I contacted them and was told that they will not provide any... Read More

I received a Groupon Coupon for You Wine Insiders Club. 15 Bottles. (for Christmas) This coupon did not allow me to pick out any specific wines. It was grouped as 15 red or 15 White or a mix. and I had to pay $30 shipping for my own gift! I am a wet, sweet wine lover, I despise dry wines. When the wines were delivered, Imagine my surprise in the DUST on the bottles! really? How impressive was that! and the wines..all but 2 of them have NO description of whether they are sweet, dry, etc. I am wondering how many of these wines are going to be dumped down the drain. If you are considering purchasing a Coupon to this Wine Club for someone. DON'T DO IT!

Claimed they shipped wine to a non-shipping address. Then charged me for a membership fee and am still battling them to refund the charges. Their membership is hidden in their terms and conditions under their confirm payment button. Don't even buy a promotion deal from them. It is a scam.

Bought a Groupon 15 bottles of whites for my husband for Christmas. Shipment arrived with dusty bottles inside. Embarrassing gift. Not looking forward to tasting these due to the presentation upon opening. Won’t buy again.

They recently ran promo for 15 bottles of red and gave you option to pay extra 28.00 to upgrade to receive premium wines. I believe my overall cost was 105.00 for the 15 bottles so 7.00 per bottle, needless to say I wasn't expected much and guess what? I didn't much in the terms of very good quality wine either. A few bottles were just undrinkable and the ones that were tolerable can only be described as very thin and watery . This is my second go around with wine insiders and each time I'm disappointed with the quality of their wines. So never again will I order their wines no matter how tempting the offer. I can find way better 7.00 bottle of wines at my local retailer. Fool me... Read More
