Wine clubs are becoming a trend for adventurous wine lovers. Those who visit wineries, who are regular wine patrons at bars or avid wine connoisseurs will often get an offer to join a winery club. Some wine clubs will go to great lengths to expand their membership while others just try to keep things low-key. 

Las Vegas is a city renowned for its casinos, nightlife, fine dining, entertainment, and shopping. But one thing that most people don’t know is that Las Vegas is also getting known for its people’s love for wine and the growing number of wine clubs. There are many wine clubs you can find in Vegas and elsewhere, but you need to choose a wine club that’s right for you. 

Here, we’ll discuss further what you should know before joining a wine club.

Know the Types of Wine Clubs

Wine clubs are not just your regular clubs where you can join and get to attend meetings, parties, and activities. Wine clubs open up new dimensions related to wine for you and there are many things to look forward to. We’ll discuss the common types of wine clubs below.

Wine-of-the-Month Clubs

Wine-of-the-Month clubs are a popular type of club for those who focus more on the tastes and varieties of wine than the social aspect of joining a club. People who have an adventurous love of wine often would seek out new wine flavors to expand their tastes and knowledge about wine. As the name indicates, this wine club mails or ships wine to your door every month. Las Vegas and the state of Nevada as a whole has relaxed laws compared to other states when it comes to wines and alcoholic drinks. Thus, you can easily pick wine clubs that ship to Nevada every month if you go for this type of wine club. What’s even better is that this type of club has international offerings and some clubs allow you to select your preferred wine like making it a perfect holiday gift for your other wine-loving friends in Vegas.

Winery Wine Clubs

If you are a fan of a specific winery or of a certain type of wine made by that winery, then this club is a good fit for you. When it comes to winery wine club activities and events, you get exclusive deals, visits to the wine tasting room or wine center, or even Grand Reserve or Vintner’s Reserve if you join this club. This could be a heavenly find for those who are loyal to a certain kind of wine, but for those who seek variety and options, the next wine club type might be more suitable – local wine clubs.

Local Wine Clubs

Local wine clubs combine the best of both worlds: the wine-of-the-month convenience and the members-only exclusivity. Local wine clubs can offer you wines that are not yet available to the public. You may also be shipped exclusive wines or reserve wines. Local wine club events are also lively and full of variety, allowing you to enjoy different kinds of wine like red wine, white wine, dessert wine, Shiraz, or Chardonnay among the different choices. This is a good fit for those who want an unrestrained sense of enjoyment and a love for wines.
