"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 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
"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
"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'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
"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
"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

wine for everyday moments
The darling grape of California is brilliant here with layers of flavors ranging from blackberry to tea to cedar. No need to worry about this being an over-the-top style. This red, from Gregory Ahn, is a medium bodied delight that pairs well with lasagna.
Grape • Zinfandel
Place • Lodi, California
FYI • Lodi is also famous for it's huge raisin production.
The idea for this wine was inspired by discovering some old vine Garnacha in the western part of Catalonia. Perched high above the coast the region is dramatic. This ruby red is laced with cherry Sweetart notes and a liveliness that lends well to pairing with a creamy carbonara.
Grape • Garnacha
Place • Catalunya, Spain
FYI • This region receives only 14" of water annually.
Duorum TonsDuorum Tons
Two of Portugal's top oenologists joined forces in 2007 to make this wine. Since it's debut it is regularly considered one of the countries best table wines. The duo continue making it to this day. Dominated by black fruit and prunes this wine pairs perfectly with barbecue, ragù, and hard cheeses.
Grape • Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz
Place • Douro, Portugal
FYI • Dourum is Latin for "from two."
a touch of pedigree
Camin Larredya Jurançon Sec ‘La Part Davant’Camin Larredya Jurançon Sec ‘La Part Davant’
Dry (non-sweet) wines are a fairly new development in the white-only appellation of Jurançon. There are several intricate steps this wine goes through to build its complexity before it is blended and bottled. With notes of apricot, lemon zest and ginger this wine is a real treat. Consider pairing with crab cakes or shrimp.
Grape • Gros Manseng, Petit Manseng, Petit Courbu
Place • Jurançon, France
FYI • Camin means “road” in the local dialect.
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.
Secondo Marco Valpolicella RipassoSecondo Marco Valpolicella Ripasso
Marco, the son of legendary winemaker Benedetto Speri, broke off several years ago to make his own style of wine. Focused on making his wines imminently food friendly, they tend to be higher in acidity and lower in alcohol than other wines from the region. Pairs very well with mushrooms (think risotto) and beef.
Grape • Corvina, Corvinone
Place • Veneto, Italy
FYI • This is passed over Amarone skins to gain complexity.
as good as it gets
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.
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.
Dom. de la Mordoree "La Dame Rousse" RoséDom. de la Mordoree "La Dame Rousse" Rosé
The wines from the Delorme family are among the most highly rated in the region. Year after year their portfolio is delicious and this rosé is a winner as well. Full of raspberry, cherry, and delicate floral notes, it is an absolutely gorgeous wine that is easy to drink and can accompany a host of dishes.
Grape • Grenache, Cinsault, Mourvedre, Syrah
Place • Rhone, France
FYI • Mordoree means woodcock in French.
