Best For: Affordability

Order Frequency: Every 3 months

Bottles per Shipment: 12 bottles

Wine Types and Quality

Nat Geo Wine offers locally sourced wines from countries like Italy, Spain, France, Argentina, New Zealand, and the US. Each wine case gives you a selection of 12 red and white wine bottles to try out every three months.

A few wines that stand out include the Pillastro Selezione d'Oro from Puglia, the oaky Argentinian J Opi Reserve Malbec, and the elegant and citrusy Guyendac. While none of these wines are particularly expensive, they’re all popular crowd-pleasers. The wine club claims that each bottle is handcrafted by family-owned estates and never sourced from any factory units.

Each bottle usually costs less than $15, so it’s not a surprise that there are no boutique, small, or medium-production wines in these shipments. However, Nat Geo’s partner, Laithwaites, does ensure you receive the odd gem with wine selections that may not be available elsewhere in the market.

Membership Options

Nat Geo Wine offers three plans: Award-Winning Reds, Award-Winning Whites, and Award-Winning Mix. Each plan comes with an introductory first-time price of $59.99 (+ $19.99 shipping and tax) per case and costs $149.99 (+ $19.99 shipping and tax) per case after that. However, Nat Geo claims that every package is worth $268.96. 

Regardless of the plan you choose, the introductory offer also gets you two stemless wine glasses from Dartington Crystal, valued at $68.97. You also receive a notification before each delivery and are free to cancel your subscription at any time.

Giving the Gift of Wine

Nat Geo Wine does not offer a prepaid version for its membership or gift packaging for wine cases, preventing it from being a good fit for those looking for gifting options.
