List of Wine Clubs

Published by at 3:57 pm under Wine Blogs/Sites,Wine Clubs,Wine Reviews

Here is a list and review of the greatest wine clubs on the market today. To start off, we’ll discuss what the number one and two wine clubs have to offer and how much they will cost. Then we’ll talk about the types of varieties and other freebies you can expect to get. There are two clubs that we highly recommend to our readers because he have tried both of them and were very pleased with what we tasted and experienced.

First, we will talk about Cellars Wine Club. Cellars has a few different kinds of memberships. You have the option to either receive a shipment each month and pay monthly or you can prepay for a certain amount.

Membership Includes:

  • 2 Different Reds, or 1 Red and 1 White Per Month
  • Monthly Newsletter detailing the wineries and vinos featured.
  • Discount on reorders.
  • Gift Announcement

Many people take advantage of the 3 month membership and get it as a gift for someone. To prepay for 3 months and receive 2 bottles each month, it’ll cost $89.85. If you want to pay monthly, it is $29.95 a month. So as you can see there isn’t a dicount for prepaying the 3 months price, but it is better to prepay if giving a gift for someone.

One other cool thing about Cellars is they offer different types of clubs for more experienced vino drinkers. They have an international club, a west coast club, and even a sweet wine club.

Here are some of the previously featured wines of the Cellars intro offer:

  • Villa Trasqua, Italy 2003 Solaris Red Blend
  • Painted Stone, Washington 2002 Reserve Syrah
  • Bodegas Fontana, Spain 2004 Tempranillo
  • Talomas, California 2000 Cabernet/Melot

Now for an introductory offer Cellars is on the pricey side and they don’t offer any special for first time buyers. If you are looking for a competitively priced club which also has great wine, Zagat wine club is going to be your best option.

Zagat is a prepay club which gives you twice as much vino for a slightly cheaper price. Zagat has really been making a name for themselves with this highly in demand introductory offer, which includes:

  • 12 Premium Bottles for only $69.99
  • A FREE cheese board and knife set (pictured below)
  • Red and/or Whites
  • 100% Satisfaction Guarantee
  • Free Binder with Tasting Notes about Each Bottle

As you can see, Zagat is priced much better and the wine is quite similar to Cellars, it only makes sense to go with the wine club which is less expensive and gives you twice the amount of wine and a free gift, especially if you’re giving it as a gift to someone else.
