If you have friends or family with distinct tastes – or those who expect more out of their bottles of wine, then the Gold Series Wine Club membership by Gold Medal Wine Club is perfect. This membership features two or four hard-to-find, high-rated wines from boutique international and local wineries.

The first shipment comes with a gift card, wrapping and newsletter and you can even upgrade to a wine country gift box for $5.99 more

You can do all reds, one red/one white, or all whites.

A Few Details about this Club:

You can choose between 1 and 12 shipments, but because recipients cannot skip a shipment, you may want to stick to a number you know your recipients will be fine with.

Also, Gold Medal Wine Club will only refund or replace a bottle of wine as long as it is still corked; so if a recipient is not satisfied with the bottle they receive, they cannot return it.

The club starts at $39 per month for two bottles and shipping rates depend on the weight and location of the shipment. So, you’ll pay $19.50 for two highly rated bottles of wine for your gift recipient.

Plonk Wine Club is one of those trendy, fun wine clubs you don’t see every day – perfect for gifting.

While they offer two, four and cases of 12 in their membership, for gift-giving purposes we recommend going with the 2 Bottle option.

The membership can be limited to three, six and 12 months – which means once the time is up the club will automatically end unless your recipient chooses to renew on their own dime. Upon setting up the gift, your recipient will receive a customized letter inside their first shipment and you can include your own special note – so they know just who thought of them.

The wines featured from Plonk all include rare, small batch and highly rated varieties. They are handpicked by their staff so that you can rest assured your recipient is receiving a wine worthy of the gift.

A Few Details about this Club:

The 2 Bottle club is $49.99 per month for two bottles with a three-month minimum (for a total of $149.97 before tax).

You will need to prepay for your gift membership in the three, six and 12-month increments.
