California Wine Club Review

California Wine Club or has been around since 1990. We are going to give you some information about them, and look at how they compare with the fastest growing wine club in the World, and what sets them both apart from each other. (See “COMPETITIVE COMPARISON” below towards the bottom of this Article)

Their primary focus is on wines from all corners of California.

Created by Bruce and Pam who saw a great opportunity to share small family wineries and their extraordinary wine with their Members. This was a journey to help these artisan wineries introduce their exquisite wines to the world.

They hand select their wine from a real-working winery and backed by their Love it Guarantee. You are never stuck with the wine if you do not like it. They offer customer support and Wine Consultants to help you with your selections.

Plans – they offer 5 different variations and at a price range of 2 bottle minimums from $20 a bottle to $120 a bottle depending. They send you wines from select regions, and their International selections are $60 or so a bottle and come from across the world.

They offer a Refer-A-Friend Program: (Taken directly from their Website)


Refer a friend, family member or business associate to our club and when they join, you’ll receive a $100 Wine Credit. Since 1990 we’ve grown by word-of-mouth because people like what they taste and they tell their friends.

Once we receive your referral submission we will contact your referral and share with them all the great benefits of the club! We will call each referral once and if needed, follow up with one email or mail.

When your referral gives the club a try, you’ll earn a $100 credit after they receive two paid shipments. When your credit becomes active, we will call you and let you know you have money to spend! Start referring now! This continues as long as they order. Add more referrals and get more free wine.

We are going to compare this with a program we are very familiar with called Wine Ambassador. We have been with this Wine Of The Month program as a Marketing Partner and Wine Lover (this is our hobby that we turned into a huge business) since August of 2016. Wine Ambassador focuses on Wines from Napa and Sonoma Valley. Special additions to the Club may occur from other locations. Though because of the truth with wines the primary focus is from the arguably best of wines from Napa and Sonoma Valleys.

Our Wine of the Month Program offers Fine Premium Wines from all around the Globe. These are wines that are rare and not available in most markets because frankly, they buy them all. They are hand picked by Sommelier (wine expert) and they are always amazing. In fact we find new favorites throughout the year. They are wines with retail values far more than the set Member pricing of roughly $30-$40 per bottle.

Our members receive 4 bottles monthly, selecting red, white, or 2 of each. And then the Wine Expert Tasting Panel prepares the notes on the wine that educate and instruct both on where the wine came from, the grape and region, about the winery, and the best part… “What foods that each wine is best paired with”. This allows anyone to complete the “Experience” of Fine Wine with the Right Food. Making any meal an Event!

Value wise..

CAWINES has a great program, though it is bit spendy (and retail pricing is surely part of the program), especially if you are reaching for a Global Variety. Wine Ambassador is focused on the wines from Napa and Sonoma Valley. They have grown into the Marketplace offering only their labels of Fine Wines.

Having top wine makers in the Family producing these incredible wines, Wine Ambassador is having the best make these exceptional Wines and then shipping them directly to the Consumer. This eliminates all the middle men and allows for a new way of Business for Wine Ambassador’s “Ambassadors” to earn incredible income. From hobby income to Career “Life Changing” incomes in the Wonderful World of Wine.

When you find something great, you refer it out. With the two programs, here is a Comparison to the Referral and Affiliate Programs. We will place a STAR next to the greater benefit.

Referral Program


Referral Program Pays $100 in Wine Credits (for future orders/to be applied to another order) after your referral orders at least 2 shipments. (Catch – if they do not order at least 2 more shipments you literally earn nothing for your referral).

California Wine Club

Wine Ambassador:

Referral Program (for both Customers and Marketing Partners), pays an ongoing benefit. Once you refer just 3 Friends into the program, your Monthly Shipment is “Free”. This is for as long as you have 3 or more Friends in the program. BUT ITS A TRUTH PROGRAM!!! 3 and it is free each month. But even 1 referral counts towards free wine. Once your customers accumulate 3 orders, your wine is free. So if you have 1 referral ordering each month, you’ll get free wine every 3 months. If you have 2 ordering monthy, you’ll get free wine 2 out of 3 months. 3 or more referrals ordering monthly and your wine is free each month.

Basically instead of a one time $100 credit if they order 3 times in total (nothing if less) for the CA Wines program. Versus Wine Ambassador’s program where 1 Referral is worth up to $400 a year in referrals in “Free Wine Credit”. 2 is worth up to $800, and 3 is worth $1200.

And when you compare the wines, you will KNOW for certain why there is almost NO COMPARISON really. Wine Ambassador has it hands down. This is the new way, only with the Old Way of Making true Fine Wines.

Affiliate Program


Offering what is a competitive affiliate commission of 15{cce03c5dbb575a791c5193784a3c23e17ad556787ac3988d97080bc0a057defb}, with bonuses and the ability to earn from any directly (2 tier only) referred marketing partners, it is not listed, but we are certain it is not more than 5{cce03c5dbb575a791c5193784a3c23e17ad556787ac3988d97080bc0a057defb}. Average Commission per Account is listed at $24. Commissions are for initial sale only. Nothing is paid out for ongoing orders from the customers you brought into the program. And they admit that their customers are on for 7 years or more. (Take that in for a second or two).

California Wine Club

Wine Ambassador:

Offering what is by far the most lucrative Affiliate Program for Wine, and for a Wine of the Month Program. The initial commission is up to 50{cce03c5dbb575a791c5193784a3c23e17ad556787ac3988d97080bc0a057defb} of the initial order, and an incredible residual process for growing a serious Business Income. There is a process that is so far beyond a Comparison. You really need to see the full presentation. See it here.

When you put them side by side;

The Wine Ambassador wine’s are better, and far better priced (no member with Wine Ambassador is paying retail), and their Referral and Marketing (Affiliate Programs) are several times better. The member pricing is roughly $30 for wines that would Retail for $80 to $120 a bottle.

We have a video that explains this entire process with Our Wine of the Month Program below. You’ll get the complete idea and romance behind the program as well as see the lucrative ways with Referrals (free wine!) and Lucrative Part or Full Time Incomes with their Marketing Program (once we endorse personally):

Oh yeah. CA Wines does not provide you with any Marketing Support. Wine Ambassador is all about Support.
