The 10 Best wine clubs

view gallery VIEW GALLERY

Whether you love Old World whites or can't get enough of vibrant New World reds, we're on the case

1. The Wine Society

The Wine Society wins just about every wine-club award going because its range and quality of wine, coupled with the ordering and delivery experience, is utterly outstanding.

Cases from £59.40, thewinesociety.com

2. Laithwaite's Wine

Laithwaite's provides award-winning wines from some of the world's smaller, wineries. Once you've paid £51.48 for your introductory case, it will reserve you a 12-bottle case that has a saving of 10 per cent every three months.

Cases from £69.99, laithwaites.co.uk ( new customers get a £50 discount)

3. Naked Wines

Members are called angels because their monthly £20 top-up helps fund independent winemakers. In return, you get between 25-50 per cent off retail prices. Don't expect wine at regular intervals – instead, you order wines whenever it suits you.

Cases from £79.99, nakedwines.co.uk

4. Berry Brothers & Rudd

These wines, all selected by BBR's six Masters of Wine, are exceptional. Members receive a case every other month and no box is the same, so you discover a new taste experience each time. Choose from a variety of themes including the reserve dinner-party case, the reserve French case and the essential mixed case.

Cases from £136 , bbr.com/wine-club

5. Marks & Spencer

Customers subscribe to one of the three M&S wine plans (contemporary selection, New World discoveries or Old World classics) and you can then opt for an all-white, all-red or mixed case of 12 bottles every three months, with guaranteed savings of at least 20 per cent.

Cases from £64.99, marksandspencer.com/wineclub

6. The Spectator

This has terrific monthly offers, each of which is dedicated to one of seven impressive wine partners ranging from Tanner Wines to Yapp Brothers. In addition, there are ad hoc choices from its renowned wine writer, Simon Hoggart.

Cases from £76, spectator.co.uk/wine-club

7. Stone, Vine and Sun

There are three tiers of membership and you can get your cases monthly or bi-monthly, as well as having the option to delay or cancel. Because it's a small business, it will tailor cases if requested.

Cases from £80, stonevine.co.uk

8. Averys

With the Signature Club, you get a case of mixed, all-red or all-white wines every three months and every month you get a 13th bottle free. There's also a claret club that involves a choice of a straight or mixed case every three months, plus 10 per cent off repeat orders.

Cases from £99.99, averys.com

9. Rude Wines

The new kid on the block. There's no sign-up or monthly fee and you can have wine delivered monthly or quarterly. You can make your own case choices or let its experts choose for you. There's free delivery, discounts and offers, and the wines are refreshingly different.

Cases from £109.99 (i readers can benefit from a £50 off first purchases using code INDIE), rudewines.co.uk

10. Virgin

Virgin's most popular wine clubs are its award-winning Discovery Club and WineBank. With the first, you get a quarterly 12-bottle case for £7.49 a bottle, with an opportunity to tweak it or miss a case altogether. With WineBank, you build up "WineInterest" to choose your favourite wines.

Cases from £79.99, virginwines.co.uk
