All About Wine Clubs

Wine clubs, of which their are many, offer a convenient way of receiving quality wines, delivered right to your door step. With the recent rise in the popularity of wine, Wine clubs have become more numerous and more flexible in their offerings. Many of the new clubs are now offering international wines, usually one red and one white wine is delivered to their customers each month. Currently the average cost to join a wine club is around $35.00 a month. You will usually receive two bottles a month. There are some draw backs in belonging to a wine club, one of which is that you will need to be home to sign for the delivery. You will also need proof of age to accept the wine. Certain states still have laws forbidding or governing the delivery of wine to a personal residence, and this has caused alot of frustration among wineries and wine clubs.

According to Jeremy Benson, executive director of Free the Grapes, There is talk of consolidating direct shipment activism in the coming year, but, regardless of legal difficulties, winery clubs continue to prove they will not be beaten. All in all if you live in a state that allows direct shipping of wine to a residence, joining a wine club could prove to be a convenient and affordable way of having fine wines delivered right to your door every month. These wines are often at their and peak and ready for drinking, with an occasional heavy read that can still use more cellaring time.
