Who doesn't love to unwind with a nice glass of red wine at the end of a hectic day? Or maybe you prefer a glass of sweeter, white wine? Whichever you prefer, there is a wine subscription out there that will tailor to your own unique palate without causing you to break the bank.

There are a lot of wine subscription services and wine clubs alike out there. We chose 10 that we think are the most distinctive yet also fit a variety of wine drinker's needs. We separated them into five different categories and put the price per each individual shipment.

Now, here are the best wine subscriptions for every budget.

Best As a Gift

VINEBOX

'Tis the season of gift-giving, and what better way to say I love you than gifting someone with a subscription to a quarterly wine club? VINEBOX does things a little differently than its competitors. Instead of sending two or three bottles of wine per shipment, they send you an assortment of wines in what looks like test tubes. For four payments of $72, you can gift your loved one a box consisting of nine different vials of wine, delivered right to their home quarterly. Free shipping is included with this subscription as well as a $30 credit per quarter that can be used to purchase bottles of wine.

If a whole year sounds a little steep (it totals to $288) you can also opt for the six-month commitment priced at $158, which will deliver two boxes to the recipient as well as gift them $15 credit per quarter. Or course, if you just want to gift them one box, you can do so for $79. VINEBOX is currently offering a wintery mix wine sampling box sourced from Spain and Italy, so make sure to check it out while it's still available!

California Wine Club

If you want to gift your loved one with one of a kind wines, California Wine Club is your best bet. This special wine club supports artisan wineries in California who make small batches of wine—meaning you likely wouldn't have the opportunity to sample these wines anywhere else aside from their respective wineries. With a premier series subscription, the recipient will receive two bottles of hand-selected wine from a different winery each month. The cost is $40.45 plus shipping.

Joining this wine club is a great way for people to learn more about 159 different indie winemakers among 14 different countries across the globe.

Empathy Wines

If you're someone who likes to drink a familiar kind of wine, and one that also matches the season, a silver or gold wine subscription with Empathy Wines may be the wine club for you. For three payments of $60, you will get three bottles of wine sent to you in the spring, summer, and winter. In the spring, Empathy Wines will ship you three bottles of rosé, while white wine will be shipped in the summer, and red in the winter. All of the grapes are cultivated by farmers in various parts of California, including Lake County and Geyserville. If three bottles isn't enough per shipment, you can bump up to a gold club membership which ships six bottles a season or a platinum membership which ships 12 bottles seasonally.

Best Customization Opportunities

Firstleaf

Firstleaf wine club contains a long list of award-winning wines, but that's not even the best part about this wine subscription service. The most impressive perk is it gives the consumer the ability to customize their box of wine based off of questions they answer in an introductory quiz. For $90, you receive six bottles of wine. After you've sampled each, rate each wine online so that Firstleaf knows how to construct a wine box that tailors even better to your palate the next time round and so on.

Winc

Winc also decides what wines to include in your subscription based on your answers to the introductory quiz. The quiz is quite simple—it's six questions that ask you how you take your coffee, how much salt you prefer, whether you like citrus or not, if you enjoy earthy flavors, how you eat berries, and how risky you are when it comes to trying new food and beverages. Similar to Firstleaf, Winc asks you to rate your wine so they can continue to send you wines that best match your palate. The monthly subscription includes three bottles of wine and costs $39 plus $9 for shipping.
