We had the pleasure of reviewing almost every Wine of the Month Club Membership Series in the last few months. Shipment after shipment, it hasn’t failed to delight. The Limited Series is the second to highest tier of Series Memberships from Wine of the Month Club. Even being at this level, the price is quite low for this level of wine club. A personal membership is only $41.95 per month, which is comparable to other premiere wine clubs which generally range between $60-$93 per month.
The collection claims that their wines are fairly uncommon and are brought in smaller numbers including hard to find wines which are close to exclusive. They also claim they are chosen for their cellar life. We have yet to be disappointed by one of the wines which are hand-selected by wine authority Paul Kalemkiarian who has been running the show after taking over for his father.
When they say they test over 200 wines a month to get the perfect picks for the club, we believe them. And if you were to be disappointed by one of their shipments, their best feature is a no-questions-asked customer service policy. They will send you a new one to your taste if you don’t like it. The customer service is out of this world!

Overall Rating: ★★★★★
We have been a member with Wine of the Month Club for about a decade now, and just like the Classic series which we started on, we tested the limited series and we had a phenomenal experience. In addition to their outstanding wines, they have outstanding and attentive customer service. 100% satisfaction guaranteed. If you don’t like a wine in your shipment, call them and they’ll send you a different one!
Wine Quality: ★★★★★
We thought their Classic Series is a perfect wine club, but their Limited Series is even better if you have the budget! These wines are incredibly delicious, and hard to find elsewhere. Wine of the Month Club’s highly critical tasting panel tastes 400 wines each month and carefully selects only the highest quality wines. All this high quality doesn’t mean consistent and boring, however; every wine we receive is unique and ripe with defining characteristics. Both wines we got in our test shipment we’d have never been aware of or to enjoy without WOMC’s shipment and suggestions.
Wine Education: ★★★★★
The Tasting Room Newsletter is included in every shipment, with detailed and educational notes about each wine. It highlights the distinct colors, nose, palate, finish, and the bold personalities. We love the cellaring time suggestions, and the in-depth info about the winery, people, and process behind each wine.
***UPDATE: The latest shipment has cut back on pages per newsletter in a campaign to go green. It still includes all of the wines in your series, but does not include the other wines from other series memberships. We think the new format is great, and still includes pairings, recipes and Q&A.
The Limited Series membership starts at $41.95 for monthly shipments, and you get to choose amongst 1 red and 1 white, 2 reds, or 2 whites. This is a great price for wines of high caliber! All of the wines are 90+ pt wines, and they would be at least $30-$40 at a local wine shop.
