Harry and David Reviews - Is it worth the price?

In this Harry and David reviews, you will be looking at specifically, their Wine of the Month Club offerings.

Harry and David is the premier name in gourmet food boxes, so wine isn't exactly their main focus. But they're a massive company flying under the 1-800-Flowers umbrella with their own vineyards, labels, bottling, and production.

So, does that translate into a great wine of the month club? Time to find out.


What is Harry and David?

In 1934 when two brothers, Harry & David (bet you didn't see that coming), inherited a pear orchard from their father. Being the enterprising young men they were, they started growing cornice pears, rebranded as Royal Riviera peaches, to luxury European hotels.

Then the Great Depression and a bit of a European military skirmish wiped out that market. As a result, the brothers cut out the middleman and started selling peaches direct to consumers through the mail. The gourmet gift basket business was born.

Fast forward to today, and thanks to their dominance in the gourmet food business, the Harry and David brand has expanded to include their own wine label with grapes grown on their own vineyard in Oregon.

Perhaps Harry and David isn't a household name when it comes to vinting but that doesn't stop them from producing some quality wine. Couple that with their legacy business in gourmet food, and Harry & David can produce a wine club that is unique.

Harry and David's wine club is pretty straightforward when it comes to the actual wine. Each month, you'll receive one bottle of white and one bottle of red. Those two bottles will set you back $115 for three months.

While Harry and David is usually extremely transparent about what is going in their subscription boxes, such as their steakhouse box, basic wine box is a different story. Outside of knowing you're getting one red and one white, the selection of those wines is left entirely up to the grower. Obviously, they should know what they're doing when selecting, but that is a bit of a policy difference in the Harry and David brand.

That said, what really sets Harry and David apart is the pairings. They offer a base wine club, sure, but they also offer a wine club that pairs with cheeses, and one that pairs with fruit and cheeses.

That's something nobody else is really doing, likely because they don't share the same vaunted infrastructure and legacy in those pairable fields.

The transparency issue with the basic wine club doesn't apply here. It seems like they're essentially pairing a wine with the food, instead of food with the wine, because in the food pairing boxes, you do know what wine is coming.

This is probably just another nod to wine not being Harry and David's primary focus. Food is the star in these clubs, whereas the wine is probably the co-star.

Since the pairings are what sets them apart, let us dive a bit deeper into what you're getting.

Harry and David Reviews

With Harry and David, you're going to sacrifice something on the wine side to get something on the gourmet food side. There's just no two ways about it, Harry and David is a gourmet food company first, wine club second.

3 Things To Love About Harry and David

Harry and David may not be a well known winery, but they leverage their business assets to get a few things right that no other wine club is doing.

Here are 3 things to love about Harry and David:

1. Excellent Pairings

As said here before that Harry and David really isn't wine focused. That's okay, because their gourmet food focus shines through in these clubs. They go above and beyond to pair their expertly grown fruit with their homegrown wine to create something special. They also partner with some of the best creameries in the world to deliver value that other wine clubs just aren't offering.

2. Frequency

This club is truly a wine of the month club. They have the volume to make that a reality. Some of the other clubs really stressed the quarterly or seasonal approach. Sometimes you just want more wine, and here, Harry and David delivers. Especially with the food pairings.

3. Transparency

One of the worst things about a wine club is not knowing what you're getting. Here, even in the basic club, you know you're getting a red and a white. That's not really enough, but there really isn't any reason to sign up for the basic club. The magic is in the pairings and in the food pairing clubs, you know exactly what varietal you're getting, along with exactly what pairings you're getting. That's top notch.

2 Things Not To Love about Harry and David

But yeah, they aren't really a winery. They have a wine label, but their core business isn't wine, and that manifests in a couple things you might like about their wine of the month clubs.

Here are 2 things not to love about Harry and David:

1. Limited Wine Choice

If you're joining the Harry and David wine club for variety, you are going to flirt with disappointment. It isn't that their wines aren't high-quality, it's just that they are all from their own label. This is probably the most traditional of the wine clubs reviewed here insofar as you're dealing with a geographic specificity some of the others aren't.

2. Term

In order to get your wine and food pairings, you're going to need to commit to at least three months. It would be nice to see a bit of a shorter trial period as some of the other clubs offer. This is less of an issue with the food pairing clubs. It is a bit much to ask for a three-month commitment blind as they do with the basic club.

Pros vs Cons of Harry and David Reviews

Here's a breakdown of the pros and cons with Harry and David.


  • The food pairings are top notch.
  • You know exactly what you're getting in terms of food and wine when you choose anything but the basic wine club.


  • Limited to Southern Oregon vineyards operated by Harry and David.
  • Locked into a three-month commitment on any club.
  • Wine doesn't seem to be the star of these wine clubs.

Harry and David Shipping Breakdown

As with most alcohol delivery services, there are restrictions on delivery to certain areas. It's best to check with customer service before you order, but Utah, Oklahoma, Missouri, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Tennesse, and West Virginia are all out of luck.

There are also a few states where local zip codes are restricted. So, check with customer service if you're in New York, Alaska, Hawaii, New Hampshire or Florida.

Is Harry and David Worth It?

Is their wine club worth it?

If you're looking at the wine and cheese, or wine, fruit and cheese, the answer is a resounding yes.

Harry and David may not be the most renowned wine label in the world, but we know Southern Oregon produces some top-notch grapes, and Harry and David can turn those grapes into some excellent wine.

The overall experience with the food pairings makes this a positive recommendation.

How to Join the Harry and David

Once you get the hang of the user interface, getting a box to your door isn't all that difficult. Time to focus on the subscription services, as ordering some of the one-off gifts is a pretty intuitive process.

Here is how to join Harry and David:

1. Get Used to the Interface

In order to sign up for a subscription service, you'll need to hover your mouse over clubs. You can find this as the far right-hand menu item in the fourth row of menus. Hovering will bring up a menu that lists out all of the clubs.

2. Decide What Club to Order

There are a ton of clubs. Eight curated gourmet food clubs alone. There are also fruit, wine, cheese, dessert clubs, and more. There's also quite a bit of overlap in what is covered in each club, so you may want to click through and read the descriptions of each.

For instance, there are two tiers of meat clubs. The Steakhouse Club and the Stock Yards club.

3. Determine Starting Month

They're extremely transparent about what you're getting in each months box. It is all pre-planned. So, if you don't want the rack of lamb in your steakhouse box, start your delivery next month.

4. Determine Length of Subscription

3, 6, 9, or 12 months? Again, since you know what you're getting, you can plan this step strategically.

5. Checkout

Pretty straightforward here. You can check out as a guest by entering your email address for a one time affair, or you can create an account if you're planning on coming back.
