"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
"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 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 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 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
"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
a few faves
Delicious wine delivered to your door.
wine for everyday moments
Dal Maso RoseDal Maso Rose
The cooler temperatures of northern Italy, where these grapes are grown, helps maintain a vibrancy in this wine. The extra time on skins helps achieve this rich color. With notes of strawberry and cherry, this pairs well with pizza.
Grape • Tai Rosso
Place • Veneto, Italy
FYI • Tai Rosso is known as Grenache in France.
Donna Laura Ali IGTDonna Laura Ali IGT
Lia Tolaini makes this wine from grapes grown in the heart of Chianti Classico. Ali, which means "wings" in Italian is aptly named as this red is flying high with juicy flavors of plum and blackberry. While certainly fit to pair with a pasta and red sauce, this delicious delight is good all on its own.
Grape • Sangiovese
Place • Tuscany, Italy
FYI • A blend of equal parts of Sangiovese clones: F9 & CH20.
Carlos Serres CrianzaCarlos Serres Crianza
Carlos Serres was a pioneer. He was a key figure in exporting riojas in the early 1900's and the winery is still run by his family today. Well-balanced with a fresh and red fruit zing, this versatile wine pairs well with a variety of foods such as vegetables, paella, cheeses, and white meat.
Grape • Tempranillo
Place • Rioja, Spain
FYI • Crianza wines must age at the winery for at least 2 yrs.
a touch of pedigree
San Salvatore CerasoSan Salvatore Ceraso
The true magic of Aglianico is revealed after some years in the bottle. One of the three "majestic" grapes of Italy, this full-bodied red can fool you at first. Plum and kitchen spice abound but instead of a protein, consider pairing with baked beans, black eyed peas, or roasted cauliflower and kale.
Grape • Aglianico
Place • Campania, Italy
FYI • San Salvatore has a photovoltaic plant on site.
Bonny Doon Clos de GilroyBonny Doon Clos de Gilroy
A somewhat weightier, more powerful Clos de Gilroy than one has typically seen in years past, this is not a shy retiring Marcel Proust, but rather more Marcel Pagnol's Cesar, an assertive but sunny creature of the south. Spicy, peppery, and perfumed. - RG Pair with Ahi tuna steak.
Grape • Grenache, Mourvedre
Place • Central Coast, California
FYI • Named after the town Gilroy, California.
Dom Bila Haut Blanc ChapouttierDom Bila Haut Blanc Chapouttier
Purchased by Michel Chapoutier in 1999, Bila-Haut is located in the best part of the Languedoc. Some grapes come from limestone and clay soils in the Agly Valley; the other part from granite soils at higher altitude (500m, later ripening sites). Rounded style with notes of papaya. Pair with roast chicken.
Grape • Grenache Blanc, Grenache Gris, Macabeo
Place • Languedoc, France
FYI • The front label is in brail.
as good as it gets
Keermont MerlotKeermont Merlot
Named after the former farm, keerweder, which means "dead end in a valley." Today the Wraiths bring this full-bodied red to market in the shadow of Guardian Peak. Big black fruit that spends nearly two years aging in French oak. Pairs well with beef and lamb dishes.
Grape • Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec
Place • Stellenbosch, South Africa
FYI • The vineyards are in Paradyskloof aka Paradise Valley.
In the winemaker's own words "Beeslar Pinotage is one of the most profound interpretations of the often tricky Pinotage grape that you can imagine. It's the Grand Cru Burgundy of Pinotages: complex, elegant, ageworthy." Pairs well with most lamb dishes.
Grape • Pinotage
Place • Stellenbosch, South Africa
FYI • Winery was founded in 2011.
Bressia Lagrima CanelaBressia Lagrima Canela
"Walter Bressia, owner and winemaker, has been in the Argentine wine trade for almost 30 years. Walter's concept involves the notion of "Vinos de Autor" (Author's wines) or personalized high quality wines. It has fresh, elegant floral aromas, lent to it by its grape varieties, as well as melon, pear and toasty oak."
Grape • Chardonnay and Semillon
Place • Mendoza, Argentina
FYI • Lagrima Canela means cinnamon tears.
