What We Like

Tons different wine varietals, producers, and origins
Wine Insiders Club is a great deal
What We Don’t Like
Can’t deliver to every state (no shipping to Alaska, Alabama, Arkansas, Delaware, Hawaii, Kentucky, Mississippi, Rhode Island, South Dakota, or Utah)
Some subscription boxes have duplicate bottles, only guaranteeing that 7 out of 12 of the wines will be unique.
No rare or limited edition wines
Wine Insiders Wine Club
The Wine Insiders Club is a fantastic way to ensure that your wine rack stays full with more than a dozen wines delivered right to your door. All you need to do is head to the Wine Insiders website, choose if you want red, white, or a mixed box of wine. Then, sit back and let the experts do the rest. A curated box of wine will be delivered free of charge, featuring expertly selected, international wines.
The Wine Insiders Club costs $89 and includes at least 12 bottles in each box. That’s only $7.41 per bottle yet many of the wines are valued at a much higher price point. In your first subscription box, you will also receive three free bottles (right now, you will get three bottles of Bordeaux but the varietal changes occasionally). That means 15 bottles for just $89 (or just $5.93/bottle)!
In your second subscription box, you will get a free deluxe corkscrew set. Expect your wine to be delivered about every 12 weeks. That means you can open one special bottle each week! You will also receive an email with tracking information when your wine leaves the warehouse.
Unfortunately due to certain states’ alcohol restrictions, Wine Insiders cannot ship to every state. Currently, Alaska, Alabama, Arkansas, Delaware, Hawaii, Kentucky, Mississippi, Rhode Island, South Dakota, and Utah do not allow wine to be shipped to residents at this time. However, if your state is not on this list, you can receive wine delivered to your door! If you order between 3-5 bottles, shipping is a flat rate of $14.95. For six bottles or more, shipping is free. Shipping is always included with the Wine Insiders Club subscription boxes.
If you ever want to cancel your subscription or change your delivery, you definitely can. Simply call the customer service phone number and choose to skip a delivery or cancel altogether. They can also help if you are not completely satisfied with your wines. Get 15 bottles for just $89 >>
Wine Insiders Wine Club Review
For our Wine Insiders Wine Club review, we ordered a mixed assortment of wine. This included 9 reds and 6 whites since right now every new subscription receives 3 complimentary bottles of Bordeaux. The box was clearly labeled with the Wine Insiders name and logo. The wine was also packaged very well and all the wines arrived in perfect condition. Get 15 bottles for just $89 >>
Here is a quick look at what was inside the box we received:
Wine Insiders Wine Club Unboxing by MealFinds
15 bottles of wine
A wine packing list of everything included in the box
A pamphlet of tasting notes and details about each individual wine. This included food recommendations for each wine, where it was from, and details about the flavor of the wine.
An informational packet that included information about the perfect wine temperature, a quick write up about wines of Spain, a recipe for steak to pair with one of the wines in the box, and also an in-depth look at one of the wines included in the box.
This was the “bonus” wine in the box that we received. It is a fruity, bold wine that goes well with hearty pasta dishes and charcuterie boards. Each new subscription should receive three bottles of this premium Bordeaux blend.
A white wine made in the south of France. White fruit and citrus are the highlights of the wine and it goes well with shellfish and grilled fish. It also has won two awards in 2020 at the Harvest Challenge Wine Competition.
The grapes for this cabernet sauvignon are grown in one of South America’s most promising wine regions. It is fruity with a hint of chocolate. We gave this wine a try and it was very easy to drink solo. It wasn’t too intense of a red but still had lots of flavor.
This is considered a medium-bodied red blend. The grapes are grown in Portugal and create a wine that tastes of blackberries and spices. We gave this wine a try and found it to be very pleasant. It had a dry finish and would definitely taste great next to any kind of gamey red meat.
The Wine Insiders Wine Club is a subscription wine delivery service of high end, hand-curated wines. Every twelve weeks, a box of twelve or more wines is delivered right to your door for the low price of $89, which, all in all, we think is a great deal. The wines that you will receive are typically priced much higher than the $7.42 per bottle price tag that you pay each month. This price per bottle falls even lower when you take into account the free bottles that you receive in the first box. Wine Insiders is very convenient, sending you wine on a set schedule so that you are well stocked and never have to worry about running out of wine. Get 15 bottles for just $89 >>
We thought that the variety of wine we received was great as well. There was a very good mix of varietals and also countries of origin. It is a perfect way to try new wines without having to do a lot of research on your own- professional sommeliers have already picked great wines for you!
The ability to cancel or change your subscription anytime is also a plus. We think that you will really enjoy the delicious wine selection that magically appears at your door, but, if you don’t, it’s nice to know you can change your mind at any time.
We do wish that there were a few more “unique” or rare wines that were included in the box. Almost everything we received you can find locally, depending on where you live. However, that is also a good thing; if you fall in love with a wine, you know it won’t be too hard to find again! And you can always see if Wine Insiders has it in their Shop section.
Overall, we think that Wine Insiders is a great deal and a wonderful way to shop for and receive wine. Sign up today for the Wine Insiders Club or just shop at wineinsiders.com from the comfort of your couch. Get 15 bottles for just $89 >>
