"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
"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
"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
"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
"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 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 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 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 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

Try this!

FYI • This grape gets its name from it's grayish-blue skin.
Cantine ColosiCantine Colosi

Grape • Grillo
Place • Sicily, Italy
FYI • Sicily's volcanic Mt. Etna is still active.
The G SpotThe G Spot
The dirty pure project likes to shake things up by making wine from "the other" grapes grown in California. In their words, they like to "flaunt convention" with "unconventional grapes with unconventional names." Look for aromas of orange blossom, jasmine, and pear. Pairs well with a British aged cheddar.
Grape • Viognier, Chardonnay

Dom. Jaeger Defaix Rully Rabource 1erDom. Jaeger Defaix Rully Rabource 1er
Hélène Jaeger took the reigns in 2005 and transitioned to organic farming just four years later. Her meticulous ways help bring out the best in her wines. With plenty of peppy acidity there is also a gracious mouthfeel of peach & apricot. Pair with fried river fish or a hard cheese such as Comté.
Grape • Chardonnay
Place • Burgundy, France
FYI • Rully wines are among the best "deals" in Burgundy.
Dom. Colline St. Jean VV VacqueyrasDom. Colline St. Jean VV Vacqueyras
A family owned winery for several generations, it is in transition once more from father to a son and daughter team. The continuity is evident in this full-bodied offering with layers of blackberry bramble, licorice, and coffee. Consider pairing with beef stew, braised pheasant, or beef ribs.
Grape • Grenache, Syrah
Place • Rhone, France
FYI • Wines from Vacqueyras must be at least 50% Grenache.
Smith & Hook Proprietary Red BlendSmith & Hook Proprietary Red Blend
There are crowd pleasers and then there are CROWD PLEASERS. This is the latter. Fruit sourced from four vineyards and artfully blended and aged in french oak produces an opulent wine. Rich flavors of blueberry and vanilla will have you grinning from ear to ear on your first sip. Pair with a NY strip.
Grape • Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, P. Sirah
Place • Central Coast, California
FYI • Smith and Hook were initially cattle ranches.
