This list of “Must-Try Wine Subscription Boxes and Best Wine Clubs” was last updated on January 2023.
I first tried wine when I was 9 – by accident! I still remember drinking a small sip of what I thought was grape juice at my grandma’s house, when I found myself spewing what was actually a Pinot Noir on my white dress.
(isn’t wine just adult grape juice anyway?)
Back then, I thought that wine was disgustingly bitter. Buuuut…fast forward 13 years later, I watched James Suckling’s Wine Appreciation course on MasterClass, and actually began to develop an appreciation of good wine after all! I know now the kinds of wines I like, and have learned different wine pairing combinations that work best with the recipes I make!
All that to say, if you’re looking for the BEST wine clubs and wine subscription boxes this year, here are 13+ of our favorite wine services for you to try! Some are classy, some are unique, but I can assure you that all of them are downright delicious!
Overall Best Wine Club: Firstleaf Wine Club
If you’ve read my comprehensive Firstleaf review, you know that I’ve had the best experience with Firstleaf Wine Club.
Firstleaf specializes in providing a tailored, award-winning wine subscription service.
Most wine clubs don’t even enter wine competitions, so the fact that Firstleaf has won over 2000+ awards speaks highly of its wine quality.
Currently, you can snag a great deal on your first Firstleaf box: 6 full-sized bottles of wine for just $39.95 + free shipping. That’s less than $7 a bottle – and the quality of each wine is truly phenomenal.
Best Small-Batch Wine Club: California Wine Club
California Wine Club specializes in small-batch, artisan wines because they believe these wines simply taste better than the mass-produced wines that dominate store shelves.
Currently, they offer five different wine-of-the-month club levels.
Each membership comes with a personal wine consultant and an Uncorked® magazine: a personal guide to their wines (which includes tasting notes and pairing tips).
Their wine club membership also includes $1 shipping, VIP Tours, extra 10% on wine club gifts, a Love It Guarantee, and also access to “My Wine Cellar,” which allows members to manage and track their wine of choice.
Price: Subscriptions start at $40.95 per month.
Best Quarterly Wine Club: 90+ Cellars
Want to taste the best wines in the world without leaving your home, and at a fraction of the cost?That’s what 90+ Cellars is all about!
In 2009, founder Kevin Mehra started calling different highly-rated wineries and vineyards around the world. He asked if they had wine for sale. While some owners told him to get lost, Kevin eventually found a handful of amazing wineries that liked his concept: to place the 90+ Cellars label on the curated wines, and sell it for less.
Now, 90+ Cellars offer wines of various kinds, available to purchase individually or through the fan-favorite 90+ Quarterly Wine Club.
Price: Individual wines start at $10.99 per bottle and Quarterly Wine Club subscriptions start at $50 for 3 premium wines every quarter.
Best French Wine Subscription Box: SomMailier
SomMailier is a French wine club that sells exclusive French wines typically unavailable in the United States.
Currently, their wine selection includes handmade crafts from 27,000 French vineyards, 11 major wine regions, 200 wine varieties, and 307 wine appellations.
You’ll also get access to an extensive wine & food pairing guide, discounted pricing on wine re-orders, an exclusive wine tour of their family wineries in Bordeaux, as well as a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Santé!
Price: Wines start at $29 per bottle and somMailier wine club starts at $99 per quarter.
Best Wine Club for Tasting Flights: In Good Taste
In Good Taste breaks the norms by asking, “why is wine, a beverage that’s consumed by the glass, almost always distributed in a one-size-fits-all (750ml) bottle?”
And so, they came out with the world’s first-ever, commercially available eight-bottle wine tasting flights.
The wines taste great, and I love how the smaller size is perfect for one-person wine drinking. No more worrying about the wine spoiling before you get through the bottle!
P.S: the empty bottles make cute flower vases!

Price: $65 for the 8-pack wine tasting flight
Unilke many other wine clubs and subscription services, Just Enough Wines specializes in conveniently-sized 250ml wine cans.
But don’t be fooled by the look – each can of Just Enough Wines contains premium quality wine and is equivalent to 1.5 glasses of wine.
It’s the perfect solution for people on-the-go who want just enough wine!
Price: Starts at $42 for 6 cans
Best Wine Subscription Box for the Newbie: Winc
Winc is a California-based winery that was one of the first few wine clubs offering an online membership wine experience.

Best Organic Wine Subscription Box: Thrive Market
