What is the Wine Insiders Club experience?

What is the Wine Insiders Club experience?
Being a club member is like having a team of wine experts working for you, recommending only the best and offering you full bottles to taste entirely without risk. You'll enjoy some of the world's most remarkable wines without ever leaving home.

You'll have access to a continuing supply of expertly chosen wines with a Double Guarantee—any broken bottles will be quickly replaced, and any bottle that does not meet your approval can be exchanged for an alternate wine or a refund.
How often will I get wine?
Every 3 months you will receive a shipment of wines based on your club selection: all reds, all whites, or a mix.
How much does it cost to join?
There is no signup fee—only a recurring charge depending on the club and bottle amount you select.
What can I expect with my first shipment?
Choose your introductory case—reds, whites, or a mix of both—and we'll add a bonus of 3 bottles of Coastal Passage California Pinot Noir, valued at $89.97, absolutely free.

With your second shipment we'll include a 7-piece Corkscrew Set, valued at $59.99, with wine opener, foil cutter, pourer, collar, stopper, and more, all in a wooden gift box, free of charge.

Our panel strives to find and import hard-to-find wines you don't find in your local store. We bring you selections acquired solely for our customers.

How can I redeem a promotional voucher?
This depends on the type of voucher you receive. Some vouchers require you to visit the URL provided. If you were not provided with a URL, just visit our site and add the wines of your choice to your cart. Click on Proceed to Checkout to be taken to the Billing and Shipping screens, where you will find Voucher Entry Boxes on the right side, below the Order Summary. Enter your Voucher or Promo Code here.

To apply your discount, be sure to enter your full promo or voucher code as it originally appears. Check for capitalization and dashes.

Please keep in mind that the voucher does not cover taxes and cannot be combined with other promotions. Shipping costs are also only sometimes included, so please review the voucher details.
Why am I being asked for a credit card?
We collect credit card information with every order. This covers applicable taxes and shipping costs, and helps us verify that the purchaser is of legal age.
Can I use my voucher with an email promotion?
Unfortunately, discounts cannot be combined. You cannot use a voucher with another promotion, such as an email deal.
Can I use multiple vouchers on a single order?
Unfortunately, discounts cannot be combined. Only one voucher can be redeemed per transaction.
Why does the voucher redemption code say "invalid voucher?"
This error occurs when the voucher is either expired or has already been redeemed. Please contact us with your redemption code and we will check the voucher expiration date, and confirm if your voucher has been redeemed.
How can I redeem an expired voucher?
While we can help you with expired vouchers, they cannot be redeemed online. To use the paid value of your voucher, place an order on our website and respond to the order confirmation email with your expired redemption voucher code. We can issue a refund of the amount you paid for the voucher. Questions? Please contact our Customer Service team for more information.
I bought a voucher through Groupon or Living Social. Where is my wine?
After you purchase a voucher, there's another step: you must redeem the voucher by ordering wine directly from Please be sure that you are redeeming your voucher properly. We often find that customers are under the impression that a voucher purchase from Groupon or Living Social is an automatic wine purchase. This isn't the case. Once you purchase a voucher, you will need to pick your wines individually, or buy a sampler pack and pay the shipping and tax. After your order is submitted, you will receive an email confirmation which acts as your invoice.
When I redeemed a voucher, I was promised a new gift voucher to use towards future purchases. How do I get my new voucher?
Your free e-gift voucher is sent to you via email after your order is placed. If you did not receive that email, please check your Junk/Spam email folder. If you are unable to locate that email, please feel free to contact us for further assistance.
Why do the bottles displayed when I redeemed my voucher not reflect the bottles advertised when I originally purchased my voucher?
The images in our Groupon and Living Social ads are examples of the wines we sell. For voucher promotions, products are available while supplies last. Availability cannot be guaranteed since many wines sell out. Occasionally, the bottles in the packages differ from what was advertised at the time of your voucher purchase.
