"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'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
"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 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
"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
"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

wine for everyday moments
Pichot Roucas VDPPichot Roucas VDP
The only downside to this wine is not much makes it to the U.S. This is a declassified Vacqueyras, a fancy way of saying you get a lot of bang for the buck. The Bouletin family makes this wine with great care and it shows. With lots of depth this meaty wine pairs best with food. Try with veal or veggie stew.
Grape • Grenache, Syrah, Carignan
Place • Rhone, France
FYI • Roucas Toumba are the fallen stones around the vineyard.
Los Dos RoséLos Dos Rosé
Named Los Dos because it is always made from two varietals. This rosé has youthful characteristics of raspberry and white flowers. While there are many rich foods in Campo de Borja including lamb, blood pudding, and garlic soup, this wine is better suited with lighter fare such as grilled chicken or fish tacos.
Grape • Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon
Place • Campo de Borja, Spain
FYI • Some towns here didn't see cars until the late 20th cent.
Ch. Beaulieu RoseCh. Beaulieu Rose
Drinking this will bring to mind toe-dipping along the beautiful Cote d'Azur while sipping on a delicate rose. A classic with notes of exotic fruits like guava and papaya, this versatile wine pairs well with... you guessed it, seafood!
Grape • Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Cinsault
Place • Provence, France
FYI • Aix-en-Provence is the birthplace of painter Cezanne.
a touch of pedigree
Aziende Valle Friuli ColliAziende Valle Friuli Colli
Austria meets the northern boundary of Friuli. Like Austria, white varietals reign supreme in this NE region. Cool nights help keep the acidity vibrant. This crowd pleaser, with hints of peach and gooseberry, gets the job done every time. Excellently paired with sushi or seafood risotto.
Grape • Pinot Grigio
Place • Friuli, Italy
FYI • Friuli has one of Italy's most developed economies.
Broadbent Madeira RainwaterBroadbent Madeira Rainwater
There is debate as to the origins of Rainwater being used to describe Madeira but it is likely because of the wine's light, fresh style or that the only way to water the steep hillside is from rainwater. Exotic fruit and caramel notes with a hint of walnut. Serve chilled at the holiday dinner table with savory dishes.
Grape • Tinta Negra
Place • Madeira, Portugal
FYI • Madeira's summit receives over 110 in. of rain annually.
Ross Andrew HuntsmanRoss Andrew Huntsman
A delicious wine from the first drop. This smooth crowd-pleasing cab is made from grapes sourced from three areas of Washington State. The resulting blend has notes of cassis, blackberry and chocolate. One of the few cabs you can drink on its own or by a nice campfire...or alongside a T-bone steak or grilled Portobello.
Grape • Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot
Place • Columbia Valley, WA
FYI • Columbia Valley is Washington’s largest wine region.
as good as it gets
Champagne Leon Launois RoseChampagne Leon Launois Rose
This house in under new ownership as of 2003. The Mignon's made a decision to take this historic poperty in a more modern direction. The reviews are in and what a success! Look for notes of dried apricot and cherry. Salmon in color and delicious with salmon too!
Grape • Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier
Place • Champagne, France
FYI • Champagne plans to expand it's borders soon.
Dom. Charvin Cotes-du-RhoneDom. Charvin Cotes-du-Rhone
Vines up to 90 years old on sandy soil is part of the magic behind what is essentially a declassified Chateaneuf. This Grenache heavy blend is aromatic an red with notes of black pepper and cassis. It is showing very well now and will pair well with lamb, sausage, and duck.
Grape • Grenache, Mourvedre, Carignan, Syrah
Place • Chateaneuf-du-Pape, France
FYI • Cotes means slope or hills.
Donatella Cinelli Rosso di MontalcinoDonatella Cinelli Rosso di Montalcino
This enthusiastic red from a perfect vintage will put a smile on your face. It's from talented female wine maker Donatella. Versatile at the dinner table, where we encourage you to serve it, it pairs well with everything from soups to meat dishes. Will easily age 5-10 years.
Grape • Sangiovese
Place • Tuscany, Italy
FYI • Rosso vs Brunello de Montalcino is meant to drink young.
