Laithwaites Wine Club Review with Video

Laithwaites Wine Club VideoThe Laithwaites Wine Club is a quarterly case club, sending you 12 bottles of wine 4 times per year, with an optional 2 additional shipments. The initial cost is $90 ($69.99, plus $19.99 s/h) while subsequent shipments costing $160 ($139.99 plus $19.99 s/h).
Laithwaites Wine ClubEach shipment comes with at least 6 different wines, many of which are doubled up. This shipment sat around my house for a few weeks, so by the time I got around to shooting the video, I only had 6 bottles left. The wines in this shipment include:

  • Château de L’Abbaye 2009
  • Duca di Cardino 2009
  • J Opi Reserve Malbec 2009
  • Silverstrike Cabernet Sauvignon 2010
  • Villa Masetti Pinot Grigio 2010
  • Sunday Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2010
  • Raymond Chardonnay 2009
  • Palacio de Menade 2010
The tasting notes were missing in my shipment, but after going back & forth a few times, Laithwaites finally sent me the notes in PDF format.

The notes include 2 pages for each bottle of wine, describing the wine, the winery, the region, and food pairings. In addition, quick notes (icons) and room for you to make your own notes.

Laithwaites Tasting Notes

After receiving my first shipment, I logged into my account and easily canceled my membership. In fact, I requested it to be canceled on Mon, May 21, 2012 at 10:38 AM and my request was confirmed on Tue, May 22, 2012 at 8:42 PM. Surprisingly I was able to do this with 1 email and no hard sells to stay.

  1. I personally love this wine club and have been an active member for many years. I love the variety and seldom have received a wine that I did not care for. I also frequently find a favorite that I reorder by the case. The 19.99 shipping doesn’t break the bank either. Many other wines websites charge up to $35.00 shipping. I would highly recommend Laithwaites to friends and family.
