As a member, you’ll receive tasting notes with every wine, which contain information such as food pairing suggestions and serving advice.

Once you’ve signed up, you’ll receive a free introductory gift.

If you’d like to delay a particular delivery, you can do so via your online account. You can also cancel or suspend your membership at any time.

Note, you can only receive 1 case per household.

Customer Service

You can contact WSJwine Club’s customer service team by phone or through an online query form 7 days a week. Its hours are 9 am to 9 pm (ET), Monday to Friday, and 9 am to 6 pm on weekends.

Bottom Line

If you’re a lover of fine wine, WSJwine has a great deal in its favor, allowing you to choose from an affordable Discovery subscription or the more high-end Premier Club. Although it’s possible to find cheaper shipping options with some competitors, it’s worth remembering that WSJwine Club’s costs are reasonable for items of this size.

Perhaps the most attractive feature we identified is the ability to customize your wine selections by entering details of products you do—and don’t—like into your online account. Doing so could help ensure you receive your favorite selections in the future.
