    I know the concept of wine of the month clubs may be familiar, but some of the specific clubs are unique: Pinot Noir series from Gold Medal Wine Club, is my personal favorite. Pinot noir is a notoriously difficult grape to cultivate, but in the right hands, it can transform into many different flavor profiles — all explored in this wine club. And since Pinot Noir wines are generally so approachable, it’s suitable for beginners to enthusiasts.
