What Makes NGWW Unique?




The NGWW club shines in two major ways:

    • Value for first-time members: First-time members are eligible for a pretty incredible deal. New members get 12 bottles, two bonus bottles of 98-point Italian-star wine, and two additional Dartington Crystal stemless glasses for $59.99, or about $4 a bottle.
    • Access to learning materials: As a brand, National Geographic has always been passionate about displaying the wonders of the world to customers. That goal is front and center when it comes to Nat Geo wine. Every NGWW club includes hard-to-get European wines, each with supplemental learning materials. For each wine, members receive pairing recommendations, region maps, and winemaker deep-dives.

Price per Bottle

Including the additional two bottles included in new members’ shipments, a 14-bottle shipment costs $59.99, or about $4 a bottle.

Wine Selection Process

The NGWW club works with Tony Laithwaites to help select the wines shipped to members. It’s not entirely clear how involved Laithwaites is with this process.


The NGWW club offers a 100% money-back guarantee. If members don’t like a wine, they get it completely refunded.

Opening the Box

Your wines arrived, woo! You may want to ask for a little bit of help: there are 12+ wines included in that box, so it’s heavy!

After removing the packaging, you’ll find any supplemental learning materials sitting right at the top of the box. Below the materials, you’ll see a custom-made wine insert. Go ahead and remove this, it’s only there to protect your wines during shipping.

Below the insert, you’ll find your wines! All that’s left is to store and enjoy your wines.

Final Thoughts

The National Geographic Wines of the World club is great for the wine learner and skeptic. The wines in each shipment are selected in tandem with Tony Laithwaites, ensuring you’re drinking some of the best vintages at a great price. Each wine comes with supplemental learning materials, so you can really understand the wine you uncork. Finally, there’s a bonus for skeptics: if you don’t like a wine, you get your money back, a 100% guarantee.
