"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 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
"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 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 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'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
"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

wine for everyday moments
Boekenhoutskloof The WolftrapBoekenhoutskloof The Wolftrap
This wine is named for one of the wild animals that used to roam through the valley when the winery was first established in 1776 (the same year other great things happened!). A blend of three varietals this wine has layers of smoke, licorice, and dark fruit. Pairs well with items off the grill.
Grape • Syrah, Mourvedre, Viogner
Place • Cape of Good Hope, South Africa
FYI • Boekenhout is an indigenous Cape Beech tree.
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.
Vina Zorzal GarnachaVina Zorzal Garnacha
Navarra is in northern Spain, brushes alongside the French border, and is dotted with remarkable medieval villages. This family run operation took off only about 20 years ago and is now producing this easily approachable wine full of bright red raspberry and strawberry notes. Pairs well with anything chorizo.
Grape • Garnacha
Place • Navarra, Spain
FYI • Pamplona is the capital, famous bulls and running.
a touch of pedigree
Pico Maccario Lavignone RosatoPico Maccario Lavignone Rosato
This very aromatic rosé is as beautiful to look at as it is to drink. Pico, the eldest of two brothers who make this wine, is meticulous in everything he does. It shows in this undeniably yummy crowd pleaser with notes of rose, cherry and watermelon. Great by itself or with summer tomatoes.
Grape • Barbera
Place • Barbera d'Asti, Italy
FYI • Hazelnuts, as well as wine, are famous in this region.
Cava Llopart Reserva BrutCava Llopart Reserva Brut
Stunning vistas of the valley with Montserrat as a backdrop will great you at this historic, yet very modern house. Four siblings currently operate Llopart turning out refreshingly delicious cavas. A classic aperitif wine with bright acidity and a hint of lemon zest.
Grape • Xarel-lo, Macabeo, Parellada
Place • Penedes, Spain
FYI • Remarkably, this house is run by the 25th generation.
Achs Lust & LebenAchs Lust & Leben
The majority of wines from Paul Achs are red, not the norm in white-wine centric Austria. His time working in Napa has brought these wines their own style of elegance. With hints of black pepper and a touch of bing cherry and herbs this screams for a well-appointed cheeseboard!
Grape • Zweigelt, St. Laurent, Blaufrankisch
Place • Burgenland, Austria
FYI • These varietals are seldom seen outside Austria.
as good as it gets
Marimar Estate 'La Masia'Marimar Estate 'La Masia'
Classic Russian River fruit is on display with notes of black cherry, plums and kitchen spice. The vineyard is named after the patriarch of the Torres family who planted grapes here in the coolest, foggiest region of the Russian River. Delicious on its own but also pairs well with mushrooms.
Grape • Pinot Noir
Place • Sonoma, California
FYI • La Masia means farmhouse in Catalonia (Spain).
Neyers Merlot Conn ValleyNeyers Merlot Conn Valley
Inspired by Pomerol, this full-bodied red is from Napa favorites Bruce and Barbara Neyers. An exceptional harvest provided "epic" fruit for this vintage. With notes of black currant, black cherry and black olive this wine pairs very well with pepper encrusted steak and squash agnolotti.
Grape • Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon
Place • Napa, CA
FYI • Husband and wife winemaking duo married for 50 years.
Chateau de Saint Cosme GigondasChateau de Saint Cosme Gigondas
Louis Barroul, whose family has owned this property for fourteen generations, seems up to the task of carrying on great things. His boundless energy comes through in his wines. Phenomenal depth with notes of blackberry, black pepper, and gingerbread, don’t be afraid to try this with poultry. For real!
Grape • Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Cinsault
Place • Rhone, France
FYI • A vineyard has existed on this property since 1416…wow.
