"Opening my box of wines each delivery has become one of my favorite rituals (well, ranked slightly after actually drinking them)! The quality of the wines has been uniformly superb, and the wine descriptions have been as interesting and educational as the wines themselves."Dusty F. New York, NY
"I have never ordered wine online, so when I made my first order with Grape Intentions, I wasn’t sure what to expect. The wines that I receive are outstanding, never had any problems. Makes my life easy! Great company, great wines."George & Linda E. Cheyenne, WY
"Hands down the best wine club out there. Always something new, amazing quality, and I love that it has expanded my palate to now enjoy rosé."Rob T. Washington, DC
"We love trying new types of wine, but we're by no means experts. Having Grape Intentions make the selections for us takes away the risk of us making a bad choice and allows us to be more adventurous with no effort. We've been very happy with the wines we've received."John H. Cary, NC
"We just opened our 10th shipment of wonderful wine! It is safe to say Grape Intentions has enhanced our lives. After we open each box we really enjoy reading the fun stories about the wine grapes, the region and the winemaker, and we appreciate the tasting notes and the pairing suggestions too. And yes, we have been known to do a happy dance when we uncork one of your fine wines!"Kevin & Debbie M. Placerville, CA
"We get varietals we never would have picked out on our own, from vineyards we never would have known to try, along with bonus information about the wines and what to drink them with. We’ve never had a bad bottle, and we could not love Grape Intentions more!"Lauren S. Ardsley, NY
"We are not big wine drinkers, so it is delightful to have someone pick out the wines and receive some background on the selected wines. Always a very pleasant surprise each month!"Karen F. College Station, TX
"Nevermind the sake of ease and convenience, I love that each time I receive my Grape Intentions shipment, I open the box excited to see what wines have arrived — knowing very well that there will be an outstanding selection, all based on my preferences, yet vintages that are new and refreshing to try."Arend F. Arlington, VA
"I've been a Grape Intentions member since they launched and I love the convenience factor, I never have to worry about running to the wine store for a last minute party invite at a friend's. I always have a quality wine supply!"Stephanie C. Philadelphia, PA
"I love Grape Intentions because it exposes me to wines that I would not have tried otherwise, and I know that they will be high quality thanks to Brett's knowledge and experience in the wine industry. I also love that part of my subscription goes to doing good."Meli M. Washington, DC

wine for everyday moments
Finca del CastilloFinca del Castillo
The dramatic landscape, with windmills dotting the plains, has lots of room for vineyards. The long days offer plenty of sunshine for the grapes to grow in this expansive region. This approachable wine has flavors of plum and berry with a hint of mint. Easy drinking all on its own.
Grape • Tempranillo
Place • La Mancha, Spain
FYI • La Mancha is the setting of the novel "Don Quixote."
Chateau Suau RoséChateau Suau Rosé
This wine switches between Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot each vintage depending on which provides the greatest ability to provide the bright, refreshing strawberry-like quality it is known for. Bright acidity, a light salmon color and aromas of raspberry and strawberry make this a quafable winner year after year.
Grape • Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot
Place • Bordeaux, France
FYI • Bordeaux is considered the wine capital of the world.
Light and breezy is the personality of this wine that has aromatic notes of lemon peel and tangerine. Like a dip into a pool on a hot summer's day, this white is brisk and refreshing. Makes for a great aperitif or take on your next picnic.
Grape • Pinot Grigio
Place • Veneto, Italy
FYI • Veneto was part of the Roman Empire until the 5th Century
a touch of pedigree
Villafranca FrascatiVillafranca Frascati
Since 1909 the Gasperini family has worked the vineyards of this land. The wines here were once the most favored of the ancient Romans. Today this clean, bright, and refreshing wine with mouthwatering minerality is perfect as an aperitif.
Grape • Malvasia, Trebiano
Place • Lazio, Italy
FYI • Lazio is only 25km outside of Rome.
Achs Lust & LebenAchs Lust & Leben
The majority of wines from Paul Achs are red, not the norm in white-wine centric Austria. His time working in Napa has brought these wines their own style of elegance. With hints of black pepper and a touch of bing cherry and herbs this screams for a well-appointed cheeseboard!
Grape • Zweigelt, St. Laurent, Blaufrankisch
Place • Burgenland, Austria
FYI • These varietals are seldom seen outside Austria.
Chakana Nuna SyrahChakana Nuna Syrah
The high elevation Demeter certified vineyards of Chakana Nuna produce outstanding fruit. While Argentina is synonymous with Malbec, it is here that Syrah shines. With notes of black pepper, plum, and cassis, this is 100% certified as delicious! Goes well with grilled meats and pasta with red sauce.
Grape • Syrah
Place • Mendoza, Argentina
FYI • Nuna means "soul" in Spanish.
as good as it gets
Ceretto Langhe BlangéCeretto Langhe Blangé
Named for the French word "baker" as it is believed Napoleon's bakers used the vineyard as their camp when his armies were in the region. Pears, apple blossoms with a hint of nuttiness abound in this white that pairs well with the classic Piemontese dish Vitello Tonnato - cold slices of veal topped with a creamy tuna sauce.
Grape • Arneis
Place • Piedmont, Italy
FYI • First vintage from the Langhe vineyards was 1985.
Zuccardi Poligonos Tupungato AltoZuccardi Poligonos Tupungato Alto
From one of the highest vineyards in the America's comes this profoundly expressive wine. Incredibly low yields pays off in the intensity and ripeness of the fruit. With notes of rosemary, hibiscus, and cassis this pairs well with lamb tagine with prunes.
Grape • Malbec
Place • Mendoza, Argentina
FYI • The Tupungato volcano last erupted in 1987.
El Rincon Marqués de GriñónEl Rincon Marqués de Griñón
Carlos Falcó is considered the father of Spanish wine and has always pushed the boundaries of wine making. This blend is from just south of Madrid where the granite soil contributes to its elegance. Made exclusively for the U.S. market, look for hints of ripe plum and violet. Pairs well with pork tenderloin.
Grape • Syrah, Garnacha
Place • Aldea del Freso, Spain
FYI • This winery is one of the most advanced in the world.
