Testimonials



The wines have been absolutely outstanding, each one as good or better then the rest. The inclusion of the write-ups on each wine, its vineyard and the history is a huge bonus. Please accept my sincerest thanks from a very satisfied customer!" - Philip Clement
About Gold Medal Wine Club
"Love this Wine Club! I have been a member for 3 years. And, just gifted my daughter and son-in-law! " — N. Thone
"You probably get lots of these e-mails, but I couldn't resist. What a refreshing change of wine clubs. I have tried most of them, you know the ones I mean WSJ, Laithwaites, etc., but the Gold Medal International club is by far the absolute best! We were waiting in anticipation for the first shipment, and it is wonderful. Coupled with the food membership, this club is a selfish treat for myself and my wife. It will be a long time before I share! But I will let my best wine friends know about you. Thank you very much for surprising us! " — Frank and Nora Castro
"I have been a member of Gold Medal Wine Club since my birthday in October of 1992. My first membership was a gift. Now I enjoy monthly wines from the Gold and Platinum wine clubs, and occasionally I treat myself to a shipment of Diamond wines. " — D. Pope
"I’ve been meaning to send you a note of thanks. The wine came a couple weeks ago and we enjoyed it right away with some friends. The Oakville was very good- Priest Ranch is still my fave, but I was overruled 3-1 that Oakville was the better of the 2. Thanks for having the same excellent customer service that we provide our customers in our line of work. Have a happy Turkeyday!" — Steve Taylor
"Just wanted to say that I had a fantastic experience with your live chat option. Karina was so very helpful and kind. I really appreciate good customer service, being in the industry myself, and I must say, she is outstanding at her job! Definitely will be saying good things about your company :)" — N. Bereley
"Thanks Susan, that's great customer service. I know, because that is what I do. We sometimes make mistakes, but it is how quickly we fix them that people remember. Raymond is 85 years old and not able to get around very much. These shipments are like receiving a Christmas present for him. He loves red wine and we are now his hero. Michele and I will definitely send more wine to our family members for special occasions." — Mike and Michele Howard
"I'm calling in reference to Lauren in customer service. She is personally responsible for the best customer service experience I ever encountered. I had a great concern over a delivery issue of a gift. She took it upon herself to call the recipient which was unprecedented in my experience with customer service in general. She should be commended for her professionalism and concern for me the customer. She represents you and your company in a capacity many owners can only hope for." — Scott Muir
"Just a quick note to tell you how much I love your wine club! We have given this gift to my parents for about 3 or 4 years now and they truly love it. I think if we tried to give them something else they would be disappointed! Your web site is very user-friendly - it is a pleasure to order this gift each year! I have recommended the Gold Medal Wine Club to many of my friends. It is a perfect gift." — J. Helsten
"I am very happy with the quality and selections for the money. This is what I had hoped for when I joined." — I. Pajcic
"We love being a member and I believe we have for over 15 years!" — F. Phillips
"Having wine come to my door every month is like Christmas 12 times a year!" — H. Howard
"My wife and I buy lots of wines (too much, she tells me!!) ... lots of French, in particular, and many premium CA wines ... we are wine geeks, with about 1700 bottles ... so we are serious collectors ... but we have always enjoyed Gold Medal's selections as we discover great deals and interesting CA wines we would not likely ever try (though, I did see that our absolute favorite CA winery, Miner, was a selection of one of the premium clubs) ... I don't know who picks the wines or what the process is, but there are not many 'misses' ... great job!!! I like to give friends and family Gold Medal as a gift too ... So thanx to all of you for putting out a quality product that I am always happy to recommend to folks." — J. Dietz
"YUM! Usually we only get reds...but with the hot summer months...we got brave and you recommended a lovely Handley Chardonnay (Dry Creek Valley). Oh my....we think it's grand. It is already 4:00 here on the East Coast...and our Memorial Day weekend has already started. A hearty thank you for never steering us wrong. Gold Medal Wine Club is everything you promised. Cheers!" — M. Valenzi
"I was once gifted the Gold Medal Wine Club and the excellent service was what prompted me to give the gift to my parents. I can tell you value your customers, and I truly appreciate that" — R. Willis
"I can't begin to tell you how much less stressful the holidays are since I began giving your wine club to family members. They all love it and never get tired of getting great wine each month!" — L. Krause
"I so look forward to opening the first bottle and to perusing the materials..and what a beautiful box. You are one classy outfit and that's why I keep coming back. Thanks once again." — Marla Horowitz

"I loved this wine! A friend of mine invited me to a wine-tasting event. We were told to bring our favorite bottle of wine. I brought the Inheritance. I also didn't know we would be scoring the wines as we tasted. I actually won 1st place! This wine got the highest score out of about 25 red/white wines. It was a wonderful way to meet new people and tell them about the Gold Medal Wine Club!!!" — Inheritance Syrah — Jennifer Berry
"First wine received as a member… first taste of a Cabernet Franc...home run! Loved it!!!" — Dawson Creek Cabernet Franc - C. Nicolin
...on Corporate Gift Giving
The most versatile, well-vetted offerings that will please both the novice and the expert wine drinker... Gold Medal has been in business for 23 years and the focus is on consistent, high-level quality wines at exceptional prices with an emphasis on small-production, family-owned or individually-owned wineries whose wines are not easily found in the marketplace–if at all. The club offers six different membership options. My personal favorite is the International Series. — Katie Kelly Bell, FORBES Lifestyle
Over the last ten years we have given literally hundreds of Gold Medal Wine Club gifts to valued clients as well as to our own team of doctors. The quality of wines is incredible and it's truly a valuable gift that keeps our name in front of our gift recipients throughout the year. — Dr. Richard M. Port, CEO, Affiliated Dental Specialists
Dozens of my most valued clients and friends have received Gold Medal Wine Club gifts for many years. I'm still amazed to hear how grateful everyone is to receive the wines. Not only are the selections outstanding, the level of service is very impressive as well. They make the gift buying process surprisingly easy. — Martin R. Raskin, Raskin & Raskin, P.A.
Simply stated, there is no more welcomed gift. My clients are effusive in expressing their appreciation for the quality and presentation. From a marketing perspective, the monthly arrival of the wines keeps our firm's and my name foremost in their minds. — Neal Maslan, Global Practice Leader - Highland Partners
We've used several different wine clubs in the past for gifts and I can honestly tell you that your wine selections are by far and away the best quality. — Douglas Otto, Chairman, Deckers Outdoor, makers of Teva footwear
