Wine Types and Quality

With Wine Insider you can order a wide variety of award-winning red, white, and sparkling/rosé wines, at wholesale prices that you probably can’t find at your local wine and spirits store. The wines come from trusted, highly-acclaimed vineyards with which Wine Insiders has developed a special relationship. They are located in some of the best wine-producing regions across the world, including in Argentina, Australia, Chile, France, Italy, New Zealand, South Africa, Spain, and the United States. 

You can select from more than 2 dozen types of red and whites, and over a dozen types of dessert and sparkling wines. Some of the wine varieties included are:

  • Aglianico
  • Barbera
  • Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Carignan 
  • Carmenere
  • Merlot
  • Malbec
  • Pinot Grigio
  • Pinot Noir
  • Zingander
  • Syrha
  • Sangiovese

Membership Options

It costs $89 plus tax to join the wine club and you receive free shipping on your first order. Over the next 12 weeks (unless you cancel), you will receive 12 bottles of wine for $139.95 plus tax and $19.95 shipping. You can renew that membership at any time.

Pricing

Part of the draw of Wine Insiders is that you don’t have to join a club in order to use the service, you can simply order bottles as is for the price listed on the website. If you do decide to opt for a membership though, there is a wine club offered by Wine Insiders which automatically ships an order of 12 wines to you every 3 months.  

Featured Wines

1. Arbos Bianco

Riesling and Moscato grapes meet in this versatile Italian white that’s born and bred in the heart of Tuscany. The flavor has hints of jasmine and chamomile—you supply the whimsy. 

Cost per bottle: $12.99

Goes great with: a nice creamy pasta, a perfectly roasted chicken, a week (or ten) lazing around the Tuscan countryside. 

2. 2018 Trebuchet Rose 

The Western Cape is one of the world’s most stunning places, and it’s also home to this South African rosé that evokes the citrusy currant, raspberry, and pink grapefruit flavors that dot the farms of the cape. 

Cost per bottle: $9.99

Goes great with: A well-done steak at a braai (barbecue) on the Cape, watching the sunset out in the bush, getting tipsy and dodging sharks in the surf at twilight.

3. 2017 Lone Cardinal Lodi Pinto Noir 

An Aromatic California red that has a brilliant, uplifting flavor. Like a cardinal fluttering through your garden, you’ll be thrilled to spot this bottle at your local store (or on Wine Insiders)

Cost per bottle: $14.99

Goes great with: A plate of spicy tacos, a steak cooked just right, spicy fish with red sauce 

Giving the Gift of Wine

With Wine Insiders you can easily redeem a wide array of vouchers, so even though the company doesn’t sell gift certificates, you can still find a lot of options for helping a friend get great wine at home. 

There is also nearly 3 dozen different types of pre-arranged wine gift sets that you can order for someone. 

These include sets like “the Perfect Party-Starter” which provides you with 4 bottles of premium wine, a decanter, and a nifty corkscrew for just $60.

Or celebrate Valentine’s Day—or just a new relationship any time of the year—with the “Dinner for Two Half-Case,” that comes with 2 rosés, three reds, and a white, all for $92. No food is actually in the case though, so this is gonna be one of those liquid dinners. (Call in sick tomorrow).

Customer Service

Wine Insiders has a live chat support system where you can speak to a company representative live from Monday thru Friday from 9am to 8pm.

Also, Wine Insiders has a highly-informative website that can make even a novice feel like they understand the world of wine like a pro. 

Bottom Line

Wine Insiders provides a truly impressive variety of red, white, and rosé wines at prices that you’d be hard-pressed to find at your neighborhood store. These are high-quality wines from trusted companies across the world, and all of it is backed up by a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Wine Insiders also makes it easy to give the gift of wine, and to help you feel like a pro. Also, the flat shipping rate is about as straight-forward as it gets, and the free shipping on orders of 6 bottles or more is a great perk. So, are you ready to be an insider?

They explain the great value of their wine and are friendly. However sometimes the customer service reps are a bit too determining, which can cause people to feel a little attacked by their offering

Kris, IN

The selection generally includes the varieties of wine that I enjoy. Sometimes I find a new variety that I might not choose on my own.
