Gold Medal Wine Clubs
Unlike other wine clubs, the Gold Medal Wine Club doesn’t choose wines based solely on their palate preferences. Instead, all the wines featured in their 5 Wine Club Series must meet strict selection criterion that includes high ratings from national wine publications such as Wine Enthusiast, Wine & Spirits, Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate, Wine Spectator and multiple medals from major wine competitions. The Gold Medal Wine Club specializes in searching for small production, award-winning wines from California and the world’s best boutique wineries that are usually only available at the winery and rarely (if ever) found in stores. Only once did we find a wine we received at Trader Joe’s. That’s a rare event though.
Overall Rating: ★★★★
We’ve given high marks to the Gold Medal Wine Club thanks to their 5 different wine clubs to choose from, which makes it really easy to find just the right wine club that suits your particular wine preferences and budget. We especially enjoyed their Pinot Noir Wine Club and their Diamond Series thanks to the 93+ point rated wines we received from California and various spots around the world.
Wine Quality: ★★★★★
The Gold Medal Wine Club’s 5 wine clubs don’t offer your average run of the mill wines you’ll find at your local grocery store. The wines they send you are phenomenal! We’re talking 90+ point wines here that have won multiple awards on both the national and international level. See some of the most recently mailed wines we’ve received and LOVED!
Wine Education: ★★★★
Each of their 5 wine clubs comes with a special full color publication dedicated entirely to the featured winery and wine of that month. You’ll often learn the history of the winery and read about the amazing accolades bestowed upon the featured wines. You’ll also receive tasting notes and from time to time a personal note from the winemaker or winery’s owner (view sample newsletter). Diamond Series members also receive a complimentary, genuine leather binder custom embossed with your own name to put your newsletters in. WOW!
The 5 different wine clubs offered by the Gold Medal Wine Club range in price from $35 a month to $189 a month for 2 bottles. Their cheapest wine club, the Gold Series Wine Club, only costs $35 a month ($17.50 a bottle) and is by far their most popular wine club. It features some of California’s best small family-owned and operated wineries and the wines you receive are all hard-to-find, medal-winning wines from boutique wineries. You just can’t beat pricing this good for great award winning California wine
