Gold Medal Wine Club

Gold Medal Wine Club

The Gold Medal Wine Club sets itself apart from other companies because of its standards for selecting its bottles. While many simply choose the wines they offer based on what the owners like and think that their customers will enjoy, the wines in this club must also have multiple medals and rankings in wine publications. You’ll get a newsletter with each shipment that contains information about the month’s selections, including tasting notes. Prices for these clubs may change depending on the quality of the wine in each shipment. Prices listed are average prices.

Gold Series

The most budget friendly club, this one features high quality wines, most Gold or Silver Medal winners of 88+ point ranking. You’ll receive bottles of wine each month from family owned wineries in the state of California. Choose from two bottles or four bottles, at $35 or $63, respectively. You will normally get one red wine and one white wine. You can also request two whites or two reds. Note there is an additional charge of $2 per month for two reds. Note that if you make a special request you will receive two bottles of the same wine.

Pinot Noir

If you love your pinot, why not look forward to two new bottles each month? You’ll get bottles from California, as well as other places in the world. All are limited production wines. Go with two bottles for $75 or four bottles for $142.

Platinum Series

Focusing solely on wines from California, this club features pre-releases, exclusives, and other premium wines. All are rated 90+ and are very hard to find through other means. The two bottle price is $89 and the four bottle price is $170. You can choose to get reds only – instead of a red and a white – for an additional $10.

International Series

This unique club not only gives you a chance to sample wine from around the world, but it also provides you with a special Adventure Package with each shipment. The package includes a gourmet food item from the featured country of the month. You can choose two reds and one white or three reds. The prices are $79 and $105, respectively. This club has a quarterly option only.

Diamond Series

Try some of the most premium wines in the world, with 93+ ratings all. You will receive two bottles each quarter from anywhere in the world. The only requirement is that they have impeccable credentials. All wines come with complete documentation. This club costs $174 and is only available with quarterly shipments. Retain your membership and the company will send you a complimentary leather binder to house your newsletters.

Plus! Program

While not a wine club in itself, this program can supplement your membership in the Gold, Platinum or Diamond Series. For an additional fee, you’ll get one extra bottle of wine in each delivery – many with availability so small that there would not be enough for all regular members. Prices average between $20 and $90, depending on the caliber of the wine. Your wine caliber will correspond to the level of your membership.
