There is nothing that brings a wine lover more joy than receiving their monthly wine subscription delivery! But how does one choose with the best wine club for them? With many players in the market, with the claims of being ‘Australia’s #1 Wine Club’, or the greatest tasting club, or the club with the best deals – it is extremely hard to narrow down the right one.
We may be biased here at The Good Wine Club, but we believe we have best club, with first in market offerings and quality wines, there are plenty of reasons why our club members keep coming back for more. Don’t take our word for it though, in this article, we compare our club to some of others available in the market.
Are wine subscriptions worth it?
Well, the answer to this question is subjective – we tend to agree that most foodies and wine lovers would be benefit from having a subscription in place. The answer to this question depends on how much you drink and how often you like exploring wines. If you enjoy experiencing delicious wines on the regular, then a subscription would be perfect for you. In addition to the wine, some clubs have great member benefits, free gifts, giveaways, promotions, and way more – so it may be worth your while to sign up.
What type subscription services are available on the market?
There are plenty of subscriptions to choose – ranging from price point, retailer/producer, region, and style. Each different subscription service has their own unique selling point and benefits – the task is finding the right one for you.
The first distinctive group offering subscriptions are the wine producers themselves ie. the wineries and wine brands. Many wineries have their own clubs, offering repeat deliveries, or exclusives access to their range. If you are brand loyalist and like sticking to the same style selection, this might be the club for you.
The second distinctive subscription service is through wine merchant retailers. These clubs can offer a wide variety of wines, as most merchants make deals with the wineries direct – bringing a bigger selection to the customer at one simple price point. Majority of the clubs in the market offer Australian wines from popular regions – some marketing to low price points ($40) to the higher end of the spectrum ($300+). Some of the major players in the Australian market are clubs which have originated in the United Kingdom and the United Sates of America, and they have created a strong presence in the wine arena in Australia.
On the flipside to the major players, there are the boutique providers – like The Good Wine Club. Smaller boutique clubs often focus on a range of hand-picked premium restaurant quality wines and good customer service. These smaller clubs tend to focus on purchasing in smaller quantities, with a big focus on taste, opposed to purchasing large quantities based on price.
The last style of merchant are the corporate clubs and the new age clubs. Over the last decade, corporate clubs have increased in size. This is where larger organisations branch out into wine territory under the same brand – from airlines to credit card service providers, there are a few brands out there that are making waves. And finally, new ages wine clubs are cropping up, with alternative style offerings from natural and organic wines.
Do clubs have locked in contracts and how much do I have to commit to?
The level of commitment of each wine club can change from club to club. Some clubs have minimum buys at the club level however, most to none have locked in contracts in place. With us, your subscription runs with you for however long you wish, and you can cancel at any time. Our specials contain 6 to 12 bottles, on a 1-, 2- or 3-month subscription plan.
