Global Wine Cellars
Global Wine Cellars Review Summary
Global Wine Cellars is an online wine club and wine store for those who enjoy tasting wine from around the world. With three specialized wine clubs (Global Getaway Club, Global Discovery Club, and Global Access Club), their wine buyers travel all over the place to taste and select the best wines for their members. They focus on providing their customers quality and hand-crafted wines. These boutique wines are delivered straight to club members’ doors either every other month or quarterly. The relationships Global Wine Cellars creates with the vintners, passion for wine, and high standards make their club desirable for many interested in wine.

Global Wine Cellars has three different memberships that serve and cater to a variety of those interested. The type, amount, and delivery schedule of the wines in each shipment vary in all three club memberships. For each club, you can have the option of an ongoing commitment (it continues until you end the membership) or the option of a four, eight, or twelve month commitment. However, in EVERY club there is always information about the background of each wine, including tasting notes, stories, and a cellar review inside the shipment. Also, they include pairing options for each wine. There are no membership fees, so you are solely paying for the wine. Each membership provides members the option to add on a seasonal shipment for an extra cost. All shipments are conveniently delivered either to your home or workplace. Not to mention they also offer all of their members 10% off when purchasing additional wine in their online wine shop.

Why We Like It
- Worldly Wines
GWC offers many wines you would not normally see in the grocery store or in large commercial places. We like that they give you the ability to expand your palette when trying wines from all of the world.
- Simple Options
The three different clubs offer clear amenities that simply differ by the amount and frequency of shipments.
