International Wine of the Month Club - Around since 1994, this online wine club
ships two bottles every month. The subscriptions are open ended and you are billed for each month unless you choose to pay for a longer
term. Each months selection includes a white and red (you can
opt to have just white or just red) from major wine producing
areas around the world.
