"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 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
"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
"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 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 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
"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
"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
"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

wine for everyday moments
MAN VintnersMAN Vintners
Named after the first initial of each of the three owners wives, this is a great example of the refreshing, approachable wines coming from South Africa. This wine has a clean finish with a hint of tropical fruit making it a great fit for spicy curries or Mediterranean tapas.
Grape • Chenin Blanc
Place • Paarl, South Africa
FYI • Paarl is South Africa’s third oldest town.
Convento OrejaConvento Oreja
Located near a bend (ear) in the Duero river, this comes from winery that is a lovely representation of the region. With notes of blackberry, spice, leather and espresso beans, it’s easy to see why this is a crowd pleaser. Pairs well with grilled meats, especially grilled sausages.
Grape • Tempranillo
Place • Ribera del Duero, Spain
FYI • Oreja means ear in Spanish.
Farina BiancoFarina Bianco
The wines of Remo Farina are highly regarded and frequent winners in blind tastings. This white sees extended contact with lees that allows for a more rounded wine. A hint of jasmine and exotic fruit, namely pineapple, help this match up with pad-thai or a caprese salad.
Grape • Garganega, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc
Place • Veneto, Italy
FYI • The Veneto is also known as Venezia Euganea.
a touch of pedigree
Wither Hills Sauvignon BlancWither Hills Sauvignon Blanc
In 1994 they produced their first vintage and there's be no looking back. Refreshing with a balanced citrus profile this wine is beautifully New Zealand without the overpowering grapefruit some have come to expect from this island nation. Will pair well with a mango ceviche.
Grape • Sauvignon Blanc
Place • Marlborough, New Zealand
FYI • Frost is a particular issue in this area.
Pecchenino San Luigi DoglianiPecchenino San Luigi Dogliani
An elegant introduction into the Pecchenino line of dolcettos. This sometimes-finicky grape gets just the right soil type and exposure to promote the plum, currant and blackberry notes of the wine. This is a very food friendly red. Consider pairing it with charcuterie, pastas or pork dishes.
Grape • Dolcetto
Place • Piedmont, Italy
FYI • Piedmont is also known for hazelnuts.
Fabrice Gasnier RoséFabrice Gasnier Rosé
This small family operation dates back to 1935 and really came into its own after World War II. Grown from younger vines on gravely soil in Chinon, this crowd pleasing rosé is full of bing cherry and a touch of fresh herb. Makes a wonderful companion with cheese, salads or grilled chicken.
Grape • Cabernet Franc
Place • Loire, France
FYI • Certified biodynamic vineyards since 2008.
as good as it gets
Branger Monnieres - Saint FiacreBranger Monnieres - Saint Fiacre
The father and son team behind this winery are among the very best in Muscadet Sèvre et Maine. Their cru-level offering is from gneiss soil and is aged on lees for 33 months (not the minimum 24). If this wine, packed with incredibly acidity and minerality, doesn't put a smile on your face, then nothing will.
Grape • Melon de Bourgogne
Place • Loire Valley, France
FYI • The first crus in Muscadet S. et M. came in 2011.
Mullineux White BlendMullineux White Blend
Inspired by Pomerol, this full-bodied red is from Napa favorites Bruce and Barbara Neyers. An exceptional harvest provided "epic" fruit for this vintage. With notes of black currant, black cherry and black olive this wine pairs very well with pepper encrusted steak and squash agnolotti.
Grape • Chenin Blanc, Clairette Blanche, Viogner
Place • Swartland, South Africa
FYI • Andrea Mullineux was named 2016 Winemaker of the Year.
Dom. de La Croix Senaillet Pouilly-FuisseDom. de La Croix Senaillet Pouilly-Fuisse
The Martin brothers have made meticulously crafted wines at this estate since 1992. Located in the heart of the Maconnais they used a judicious amount of oak when making this white. With harmonious notes of vanilla and toast it pairs well with chicken dishes.
Grape • Chardonnay
Place • Burgundy, France
FYI • Named after a cross given to the village in 1793.
