9 Great Wine Subscription Services
CRISPIN WINE CLUB
Best For Trying Something New
Crispin, the all-day cafe and restaurant in Spitalfields, also has a natural wine club. The subscription service delivers bottles chosen by Crispin’s sommelier, Alexandra Price. With a focus on natural, biodynamic and low-intervention wines from small producers and cooperatives, the wine club supports small and independent producers who use old-world indigenous and rare grape varieties. Each subscription case includes some easy drinkers, alongside more interesting, funky and wild options.
Best For Natural Wines
A Shoreditch bar and restaurant that celebrates natural wine, Oranj offers monthly sommelier-curated wine boxes for nationwide delivery. The Oranj Natural Wine Subscription is a wine case that is guided by you and curated by the Oranj team. You decide on what colour wines you want, how many, and how often you want your deliveries. Then Oranj choose bottles from the bar's constantly evolving wine list. Every subscription box has a guaranteed lower price than if the bottles were purchased individually from the bottle shop. Right now, we like the look of the Entre Vinyes Pet Nat Rosé.
Best For Wine & More
Peckham Cellars is an independent wine, beer and cocktail shop delivering nationwide. Individual bottles, cans and cases are available to order online, all at competitive prices. The 150-strong wine list is curated by sommelier and co-founder Ben, who builds an eclectic selection prioritising small producers who use minimum-intervention practices in emerging wine regions. Bottled cocktails – such as a Troo margarita – are also available, as are some interesting cans of craft beer. Serious wine fans should join Club Del Vino, which sends out a monthly case of mixed wines. As a Club Del Vino member you'll also get 10% off at Peckham Cellars online, in store and in its wine bar, plus exclusive offers on wine, pre-sales on limited stocks, and special access to tastings and events.
THE GRAPE RESERVE
Best For The Weekend
Billing itself as ‘straight-talking and straightforward’, The Grape Reserve will send you two bottles of wine a month for a set price of £33. You can select two reds, two whites or a bottle of each. Every delivery includes tasting notes, complementary food pairing ideas and a recipe. Working only with independent wineries, the aim is to shine a light on varieties from regions you might not know well. Nicely boxed and seriously padded, a delivery service would have to work extremely hard to damage your bottles.
Best For Small-Batch Bottles
Wine is subjective, so Plonk has created a speedy 2-minute wine quiz to help new subscribers find a service to suit their taste. Subscriptions provide a monthly box of delicious wine, plus information cards on each wine, food pairings, free delivery and a free gift. Fed up with mass-produced, characterless bottles found on a lot of supermarket shelves, Plonk seeks out smaller wine producers who produce bottles made with the utmost respect for the vines and land they are tending. To do its own part, Plonk provides ‘no carbon emission’ deliveries and 100% recyclable packaging.
Best For Biodynamic Bottles
Savage Vines wants to get shoppers out of the supermarket and introduce them to new wine regions and grape varieties. The team handpicks all their wines directly from small, independent winemakers, focusing on organic and biodynamic wine made with minimal intervention and as little impact on the environment as possible. At a host of price points, customers can choose whether to receive two, three, four, six or 12 bottles a month, and decide if they want all red wine, white wine or a combination of both. All wine subscriptions come with a monthly magazine which includes tasting notes, food pairing recipes and more.
BRIXTON WINE CLUB
Best For On-The-Go Sipping
Brixton Wine Club’s USP? Delivering its selection of award-winning wines in portable cans. New customers can subscribe from £19 a month for as long as they’d like – there’s also the ‘One Time Wine Fling’ box for anyone looking to dip their toe in first. Subscription packages include three, four or six hand-selected cans – each between 187ml and 250ml. Boxes on offer include: The Juice Box, a bestselling box with red, white, rosé and sparkling wines; Simply Red; All White, which showcases still and sparkling bottles; Rosé All Day; and 100% Fizz = 100% Fun.
GOOD PAIR DAYS
Best For Wine Pairings
If you enjoy selecting bottles to drink alongside your dinner, take a look at Good Pair Days, a delivery service that specialises in matching wine with dishes. To begin, take the team’s palate quiz to uncover your taste profile. From there, they’ll recommend the best wines, sourced from all over the world, to suit your palate, preferences and budget. Your selection will be shipped with tasting notes and recipes to try. It’s free to sign up – customers only pay for what they drink, and bottles start at £9. You can cancel, pause or change your box size whenever you like and, best of all, if you don’t love a bottle, the brand will add a free one to your next box. Finally, its No Planet, No Pinot fund donates 1% of all revenue to independent winemakers directly impacted by climate change.
Best For Variety
Winebuyers is an online wine club with a simple mission: to bring wine into the 21st century. It connects customers directly with some of the best vineyards and specialist merchants, offering access to over 50,000 bottles spanning 40 countries, all with zero mark-up and a commission-free price tag.
