    What is National Review Wine wine club?

    The National Review established the wine club primarily as a means for its readers to support the news content produced by the magazine. It also aims to introduce readers to new wines they may have never tried and claims thousands of wines are reviewed before making it into the club.

    How does the National Review wine club work?

    There’s only one level of membership; you simply choose how long you’d like the membership for and you’ll get bigger discounts the longer you sign up for. All shipments contain four bottles and are delivered monthly. You can sign up quickly via an online application form.

    About the wine

    National Review doesn’t go into a lot of detail about its wines, and it can be difficult to find information. This can mean you might receive a bit of a mystery box in your order given the wines are chosen by the National Review staff. However, some varietals on offer include cabernet, pinot noir, and zinfandel.

    National Review wine club wine brands

    National Review doesn’t state which brands it sources its wines from, as this changes from shipment to shipment.

    National Review wine club membership benefits

    Unlike many other wine clubs, National Review doesn’t offer any additional benefits. Beyond an introductory offer of four wines for $29.99, there are no other incentives for joining. Membership is aimed largely at those who want to support the magazine.

    National Review wine club membership programs

    While you’re able to choose a monthly, three-month, or six-month membership, the wines you’ll receive will be the same regardless of which option you go with. You may however choose between all reds, whites, or a mixture of both.

    National Review wine club membership length

    National Review doesn’t state whether there are any cancellation charges to the rolling monthly wine club. You’ll need to contact directly to confirm. If you’ve chosen a three-month or six-month subscription, however, you’ll be committed to the full length.

    Can I give National Review wine club as a gift?

    Yes, you can choose any of the membership length options as a gift.

    The bottom line

    The National Review wine club is really only for you if you’re a fan of the magazine and want to show your support. 

    If you want more choice, better pricing, and transparent information on your wines, you’d be better off signing up to the Wall Street Journal wine club. Or, if you want some control over the choice of your wines, you should try Naked Wines.
