What We Like

Affordability

With a price per dozen ranging from $79 to $159, and no membership or delivery fees, this is one of the cheapest wine delivery services in Australia.

If you’re just getting started on your wine journey and want to taste a few different varieties before making any significant purchases, this would be a great place to start.

Visibility

A feature we really like is that you get full visibility of the wines that will be included and have the ability to contact them to request changes if there’s anything you don’t like the look of. 

Just Wines contacts each member before delivery to ensure they have time to review the wines and make sure it suits their preferences.

No repeats

Just Wines guarantee that there will be no repeats within a 12-month period for the Entertainers and Executive Dozens.

Satisfaction guarantee

Like most online wine stores, we’re happy to see that Just Wines has a 100% moneyback guarantee. If you are dissatisfied with any of the wines your receive they will refund or credit you for the cost of the bottle and return shipping.

Australian focus

We’re big fans of the way Just Wines focuses on showcasing wines from across Australia. 

In fact, their stated vision is to support Australian wineries by providing them with an easy to navigate platform for selling their wines.

Our country makes some of the best wine in the world, so it makes sense to consume what is produced locally.


What We Don’t Like

More traditional varieties

As a more traditional wine retailer, you’re unlikely to get many of the newer varieties in your Just Wines subscription. If Pét-Nat and Orange Wine are your jam, then you’re best to look elsewhere.

No tasting notes

There are no tasting notes in these wine boxes. While this probably isn’t a deal breaker for most people, it can be a nice-to-have if you’re trying to learn more about wine.

No NT delivery

Unfortunately the Just Wine Trophy Club currently isn’t available to customers in the Northern Territory.

Customer Reviews

Customer reviews are generally very positive for the Just Wines Trophy Club.

As we would expect, members praise the great value offered by the subscription program. Customers not only speak highly of the wine they receive but also generally seem to have a great experience with the delivery and any contact with customer service.

We’ve also been impressed with customer reviews praising the wine advisors that get in touch each month to ensure members are happy with the wine selection before it is sent out.

What’s in the box?

In the more affordable boxes, you’ll usually receive two of six different bottles of wine.

As an example, below is the current list of wines included in the Easy Drinkers White Mix. This is one of the cheapest wine subscriptions from Just Wines at $79.00.

  • 2 X Uptown Colombard Chardonnay 2020 Australia
  • 2 X King of Clubs Pinot Grigio 2020 SEA
  • 2 X Q Reserve Pinot Grigio 2020 Australia
  • 2 X Ultimo Semillon Sauvignon Blanc 2020 Australia
  • 2 X Lost Lane Semillon Sauvignon Blanc 2020 SEA
  • 2 X Le Repaire de Bacchus Chenin Blanc 2009 Australia

In the more expensive boxes, you’ll usually receive 12 different bottles. The $129.00 Trophy Club Entertainers Red & White Mixed currently contains the following:
