Are Wine Clubs Worth It?

Wine clubs make the world go round, seriously. You sign up and boom – you have wine waiting for you on a monthly, quarterly,  or even yearly basis. This all sounds all too simple and easy. It may have you wondering, are wine clubs worth it?

To answer that quickly, yes. But, we think we owe you more than just a one-word explanation…

Here are 5 Reasons Why Wine Clubs are Worth It!

You’ll Have the Wines You Love, All the Time

When you sign up for a wine club, you’re guaranteed wine on whatever basis you signed up for. What’s better than that is you get to choose the kind of wine you’re looking for. This goes from wine type to producer to even specific grape varietal.

Wine clubs come in various formats so that you can customize your membership to your liking. You can sign up with wine club platforms that offer subscriptions of various kinds of wine. Or, you can sign up with your preferred winery’s wine club. This way, you get all your favorite bottles on a regular basis.

No matter what you choose, you get more than just a choice of wine club supplier. Most wine clubs allow you to pick the types of wine you want. That could be white wine, red wine, sparkling, or all of the above. These choices also include the regularity of your subscription. Typically, you have the option of monthly, quarterly, or yearly wine club deliveries. It’s up to you how often you’d like your wine!

You Get Some Serious Perks

Wine clubs offer more excitement than just bottles of wine. Signing up for a wine club actually benefits your wine budget. How does that work?

With wine clubs, you are no longer purchasing bottles at the usual retail price. Instead, you’re getting them at a much better rate, as you’re buying bottles in larger quantities and/or straight from the winery. This saves you a few bucks on each bottle, which really adds up if you’re an avid wine drinker.

Not only that, you save time too. Wine clubs gladly ship wine right to your door. No need to hop in your car and peruse the wine store. You’ll have wine waiting for you when you get home.

The benefits don’t stop there. Wine clubs offer added membership benefits, especially those from wineries. You can enjoy discounts, free tastings, and personal invites to events too. Even better, winery wine clubs prioritize their members by sending them new vintages of wines before anyone else can buy them. Now, that’s pretty awesome.

Directly Supporting Winemakers

One of the most brilliant aspects of wine clubs is how they are a great way to support wineries. When you purchase a bottle at a wine shop, the money isn’t going right into the winemaker’s hands. You’re paying for the supply chain that gets your wine to the shop. This isn’t a bad thing, of course. Supporting local wine shops is very important. But, if you want to consistently support wineries you love and help them stay in business, a wine club is one of the best ways to do so.

Signing up for a winery’s wine club means the world to winemakers. It reminds them that they have loyal customers who value the work they’re doing. And, that’s exactly why winery wine clubs come with perks – it’s the winery’s way to say thank you!

Joining a winery’s wine club also personalizes your relationship with these wine producers. You will be able to immediately receive their latest releases. And, with all the membership benefits, you’ll feel more inclined to visit whenever you can and enjoy more wine where your wines were made.

Wine Clubs Make an Excellent Gift Too!

Struggling to pick out a birthday present? Or a Christmas gift? Well, wine clubs are the perfect answer to that (well, that is if the person drinks wine, but, let’s be real, who doesn’t?)

Most wine clubs know just how to put the bow on the perfect gift. They’ll allow you to customize your gift, whether that be by wine type, grape, or origin. Even better, wine clubs usually will provide gift wrapping and gifting bonuses, like cute glasses or even signature tote bags.

So, to answer your question – are wine clubs worth it? Well, if you love wine, joining a wine club is never a bad idea. It not only delivers wine straight to your door but all the added benefits of being a wine lover. This is especially true if you sign up for a wine club with a winery.
