Looking to join a wine club? Well, let us help you!
There are so many wine clubs operating in Australia right now, that it can be difficult to know which one to choose.
Whether you want to join a club that can provide you with a huge selection of labels at a very affordable price. Champion the wines of a particular region. Or present you with rare gems, from independent wineries you’d never previously heard of before. There is a wine club out there for you.
In this guide, we will showcase 19 of the best wine clubs and subscriptions in Australia. Join any of these and you’ll never be left wanting for a drop.
Naked wines are widely recognised for being one of Australia’s leading wine clubs.
Known for supporting local independent winemakers, they offer you the chance to receive a curated batch of premium fine wines, every month for just $40.
The beauty of their direct-to-consumer system is that you don’t have to make any choices at all. They simply send you the wines they have selected. Which is a very good way to try new drops.
While their website is a tad on the cluttered side and does not have as good a user experience as other clubs on this list, however, you won’t be disappointed with the quality of wines they give you.
If you do join, you can choose between a one-off or a monthly subscription.
