Laithwaites Italian Wine Club VISIT SITE
 

Laithwaites Wine Club

100% Satisfaction Guarantee

Overall Rating: 5 Stars Phenomenal
Formerly known as the 4 Seasons Wine Club, the Laithwaites Wine Club was an easy choice for the #1 position for this year's Best Italian Wine Clubs. They offer outstanding pricing (only $5.84 a bottle), some superb Italian wines, excellent customer service and an awesome FREE gift that makes this one of the most popular wine club gifts as well. Not every wine you receive is of Italian origin, but the ones we have received from Italy were easily 90+ point wines in our book.

Wine Quality: 5 Stars Phenomenal
Every quarter the Laithwaites Wine Club sends out a new 12 bottle shipment and so far, every quarter, we've been ecstatic with the high-quality Italian wines we've received. Like we mentioned above, the Italian wines we have received were easily 90+ point wines in our book.

Wine Education: 5 Stars Phenomenal
Laithwaites also does an excellent job of educating you on each and every Italian wine they send you. You'll learn what region of the country the wine came from, what the growing season was like that gave the wine it's unique spark, how it was harvested and what was done differently to make the wine so unique and delicious.

Pricing: 5 Stars Phenomenal
The Laithwaites Wine Club ranked highly in our Best Wine Club list as well for they're amazingly low prices of only $5.84 a bottle. Like other wine clubs, they also charge a $19.99 shipping and handling fee that delivers your wine in about 7 days via FedEx.

Celebrations Italian Wine Club VISIT SITE
 

Celebrations Wine Club

Overall Rating: 4.5 Stars Outstanding
The Celebrations Wine Club placed 2th on our Best Italian Wine Clubs list for being the only wine club out there to offer an Italian only wine club. The owner of the wine club does all the tasting and buying on location in Italy! What a great job, huh? No other wine club can make that claim. If you love Italian wines, and are willing to pay extra for them, then Celebrations Italian Wine Club is for you.

Wine Quality: 4.5 Stars Outstanding
The Celebrations Italian Winemaker Reserve Super-Premium Red Wine Club definitely deserves 5 stars, but at $87 a bottle, its a bit too far out of reach for most people. The most commonly purchased Italian Wine Club of theirs is the Italian Artisan Series that runs $17 a bottle and easily deserves 4 stars for wine quality.

Wine Education: 4.5 Stars Outstanding
We really like how the owner of the Celebrations Wine Club, Anna Maria Knapp, presents her Italian Winery of the Month newsletter. She highlights the age of the winery (usually back to the 1600s with most Italian wineries), she details the region it came from, the unique qualities of that area (such as climate and soil specifics) and how that all had an effect on the wine you receive from her wine club. Here's a sample newsletter.

Pricing: 4.5 Stars Outstanding
Wine club pricing starts at $17 a bottle and goes all the way up to $87 a bottle depending on which wine club you sign up for. If you can afford it, the most expensive wine club membership (Italian Winemaker Reserve Super-Premium Red) is absolutely amazing and well worth the price.

Wine of the Month Club

best wine club

Overall Rating: 4.5 Stars Outstanding
Coming in at #3 on our Best Italian Wine Clubs list is the original Wine of the Month Club. This is the only wine club that has a panel of wine taste testers that go through 400 bottles of wine a month in order to find the best two to send to you. Out of all the Italian wines we've received so far, our favorites have been from Tuscany, Liguria, Piedmont and Sardinia. Not every bottle they send is from Italy, but every wine we've received so far has been amazing! You won't be disappointed by their exceptionally detailed wine education, affordable pricing, superb packaging (that makes a great presentation piece at dinner parties) and amazing customer service that we just can't stop raving about.

wine Wine Quality: 4.5 Stars Outstanding
Every bottle of Italian wine you receive from the Wine of the Month Club has been prescreened by a highly-trained panel of wine tasters that evaluate and compare their favorites out of the 400 bottles of Italian wine evaluated every month! The Wine of the Month Club is the ONLY Italian wine club that goes to such extremes to ensure you only receive the highest quality Italian wines available.
wine club reviews Wine Education: 4.5 Stars Outstanding

Wall Street Journal Italian Wine Club VISIT SITE
 

The Wall Street Journal Wine Club

wall street journal wine club guarantee

 

Overall Rating: 4 Stars Excellent
While the WSJ Wine Club came in #1 on our Best Wine Clubs list this year, they didn't send us enough Italian wines for us to give them a 5 star rating. The few Italian wines we did receive from them were absolutely delicious and a great deal at only $5.84 a bottle, but if you only want to receive more than a couple Italian wines throughout the year, then you might consider sticking with the Top 4 Best Italian Wine Clubs listed above. If you're open to more than just Italian wines, then you can't go wrong with the Wall Street Journal Wine Club.

Wine Quality: 4 Stars Excellent
While the quality of the Italian wines that we received from The Wall Street Journal Wine Club is excellent, we found them to be a bit lower than the Top 4 Best Italian Wine Clubs that are listed above. However, these are still delicious wines at absurdly low prices: only $5.84 a bottle. And I must add that we have yet to find an Italian wine from the WSJ Wine Club that we didn't enjoy.

Wine Education: 4 Stars Excellent
The colorful tasting notes you receive from the Wall Street Journal Wine Club are really well put together and a vast improvement over their wine tasting notes from last year.

Pricing: 5 Stars Phenomenal
Price wise, the Wall Street Journal Wine Club rivals that of the Zagat Wine Club and the Laithwaites Wine Club at just $5.84 a bottle. And as we have said before, contrary to popular belief, that low price does not mean that you are getting low quality wines. It just means that the Wall Street Journal Wine Club has some seriously good wine buyers with amazing negotiation skills!

Cellars Wine Club

Overall Rating: 4 Stars Excellent
The Cellars Wine Club doesn't have a dedicated Italian wine club, but they do have a phenomenal international wine club that does send us some great Italian wines throughout the year. We've enjoyed the wines we've received from the Cellars Wine Club so much, that if they did have a dedicated Italian Wine Club, we would surely be ranking them in the Top 3 Best Italian Wine Clubs. Read our full review of the Cellars Wine Club.

Uncorked Ventures Italian Wine Club VISIT SITE
 

Uncorked Ventures Wine Club

Overall Rating: 4 Stars Excellent
The Uncorked Ventures Wine Club came in 7th place this year for Italian wines as EVERY bottle is a 90+ point wine. In fact, they earned the #1 position this year in our 90+ point wine club reviews. However, we didn't rank them in the Top 5 Best Italian Wine Clubs as the majority of the wines in their wine club are from California. Read our full review of the Uncorked Ventures Wine Club.

Gold Medal Italian Wine Club VISIT SITE
 

Gold Medal Wine Club

Overall Rating: 3.5 Stars Very Good
The Gold Medal Wine Club has a great International Wine Club called the "International Series" that brings ultra-premium wines from some of the world's greatest hidden wine country estates, straight to your door. These wine, which include wines from Italy, are very hard to find as they are rarely sold in stores in the United States. The wine club makes quarterly shipments of three specially selected wines (two different reds and one white) and costs $75 a quarter ($25 a bottle). Read our full review of the Gold Medal Wine Club.
