"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
"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
"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
"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
"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 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
"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 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
"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

wine for everyday moments
Indwe PinotageIndwe Pinotage
This isn’t your uncle’s pinotage (a grape unique to South Africa) and it’s easy to convince you with this one. Subtle notes of cherry, spice, and a touch of smoke offer up a seductive drinking experience that will put a smile on your face. Give it a try with marinated lamb or an Indian curry.
Grape • Pinotage
Place • Western Cape, South Africa
FYI • Named after the blue crane, South Africa’s national bird.
Founded in 1993 the wines from this estate are always known for their approachability. Stainless steel production is a principle reason that this is such a super-easy drinking cab. With notes of black pepper and tobacco this pairs well with items off the grill...including sea bass.
Grape • Cabernet Sauvignon
Place • Central Valley, Chile
FYI • This fertile valley extends for nearly 400 miles.
Regaleali Bianco Tasca d'AlmeritaRegaleali Bianco Tasca d'Almerita
Regaleali is at the heart of the families estate where they produce this great sipping wine that is alive with easy-to-drink citrus notes. Located in the mountainous center of Sicily, people flock here to learn in one of Italy's best cooking schools. Pairs well with Pecorino cheese or a dish featuring tomato and eggplant.
Grape • Inzolia, Grecanico, Catarrtto, Chardonnay
Place • Sicily, Italy
FYI • Home to an internationally renown cooking school.
a touch of pedigree
Pala Monica FioriPala Monica Fiori
The beautiful setting where this wine comes from is reflected in the bottle. Produced by the Pala family from a varietal found almost entirely on Sardinia it is made using stainless steel and concrete tanks. It has an attractive violet color with notes of licorice. Pairs well with meaty dishes and fatty fish.
Grape • Monica
Place • Serdiana, Sardinia
FYI • Sardinia is the Mediterranean's second largest island.
Camara Alta TempranilloCamara Alta Tempranillo
Just to the north of Rioja and not all that far from the French border is Spain’s Navarra region. The soil here is just right for coaxing the perfect amount of ripeness out of this grape. Ripe, fruity and fun, pair this at your next casual affair with grilled Portobello, hamburgers or pulled pork.
Grape • Tempranillo
Place • Ribera Baja, Spain
FYI • This was Spain’s most important wine region in the 1700s.
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.
as good as it gets
Marchesi di Gresy Barbaresco MartinengaMarchesi di Gresy Barbaresco Martinenga
The vineyard Martinenga is one of the most treasured sites in Piedmont. It sits in the heart of Barbaresco and has idyllic soil and sun exposure conditions. Elegant, graceful, memorable. This "Lady In Red" is full of plums, violets, licorice, and a hint of earth. Pairs extremely well with game birds.
Grape • Nebbiolo
Place • Piedmont, Italy
FYI • Piedmont means "at the foot of the mountains."
Dom. Comte Abbatucci FaustineDom. Comte Abbatucci Faustine
Jean-Charles runs this domaine and is a believer in all things biodynamic. Whatever is takes to make his grapes happy in the pristine vineyard he is all about - including driving loud speakers through the vineyards playing Corsican polyphonic songs. With notes of tropical fruit and bright acid it pairs well with cheese.
Grape • Vermentino
Place • Ajaccio, Corsica
FYI • Napoleon Bonaparte was born here.
Ch. de Segries TavelCh. de Segries Tavel
Ch. Segries, which in provencal means "water spring," is a favorite of critics and wine aficionados alike. As you can imagine there is lots of history here. What to take away from this wine is it's overwhelming deliciousness. Layers of cherry, strawberry, and fresh flowers pair beautifully with spicy cuisine.
Grape • Grenache, Cinsault, Clairette, Syrah
Place • Rhone, France
FYI • Tavel is the only AOC to produce entirely rosé wines.
