    What is Minimo wine club?

    As a wine merchant, Minimo is always on the lookout for new wines and interesting vineyards and searches across the country and the globe for new additions to add each month.

    How does the Minimo wine club work?

    Minimo keeps things very simple with just one club option available. It will hand-select two new wines each month for members from interesting wineries that it’s found. Members don’t get to choose the wines, and will be relying on Minimos sommeliers to pick some quality options.

    What Minimo wine club costs

    You’ll get two bottles of wine delivered each month at a cost of $50 per shipment.

    About the wine

    The stock at Minimo is constantly rotating as it sources new wines on a regular basis. This means there isn’t a steady supply of the same varietals available. Your membership delivery will be a bit of a surprise each month.

    If you live local to the Oakland area, you can visit the shop to taste what’s currently on offer, this will give you an idea of the types of wines you can expect in your next delivery.

    Minimo wine club wine brands

    Minimo doesn’t list the brands it has in stock. Like the varietals, brands are always changing as Minimo finds new vineyards to try. You’ll need to visit the store in person, or phone Minimo to confirm what brands are currently available.

    Minimo wine club membership benefits

    • 20% off any wine tastings at the shop
    • Free corkage on any bottle bought in the shop

    Minimo wine club membership programs

    There’s just one membership program at Minimo. Receive two bottles of hand-selected wine each month.

    No, membership can’t currently be gifted.

    We couldn’t find any discount codes or coupons to use on a Minimo membership.

    Minimo price and shipping

    Shipping is a flat fee of $25, however, Minimo only ships to 16 states at the moment.

    The bottom line

    Minimo is definitely a club more targeted at those in the local Oakland area. You’ll need to visit the shop to see what types of wines are on offer, and other membership benefits are geared towards those visiting for tastings and events.

    Instead, you might want to try a club like Naked Wines. It features more than 150 independent winemakers and gives you complete control and flexibility over which wines you’d like as part of your membership.

    Alternatively, you could sign up for the Wall Street Journal Wine Club. It’s a great option for newcomers and is very reasonably priced.
