"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
"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
"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
"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
"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 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
"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 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

wine for everyday moments
Finca del CastilloFinca del Castillo
The dramatic landscape, with windmills dotting the plains, has lots of room for vineyards. The long days offer plenty of sunshine for the grapes to grow in this expansive region. This approachable wine has flavors of plum and berry with a hint of mint. Easy drinking all on its own.
Grape • Tempranillo
Place • La Mancha, Spain
FYI • La Mancha is the setting of the novel "Don Quixote."
MAN VintnersMAN Vintners
Named after the first initial of each of the three owners wives, this is a great example of the refreshing, approachable wines coming from South Africa. This wine has a clean finish with a hint of tropical fruit making it a great fit for spicy curries or Mediterranean tapas.
Grape • Chenin Blanc
Place • Paarl, South Africa
FYI • Paarl is South Africa’s third oldest town.
Borsao BlancoBorsao Blanco
Often used in Cava production, Macabeo is the "secret" to this wine offsetting the chardonnay with a floral-like quality. A combo of barrel and stainless-steel fermentation add more complexity to this refreshing wine. Bright with a quick finish this pairs well with fish or as a summer sipper next to the pool.
Grape • Macabeo, Chardonnay
Place • Campo de Borja, Spain
FYI • This region has produced wine since the 1100's.
a touch of pedigree
Inama SoaveInama Soave
The Veneto, the NE region of Italy where this wine is from, was not always a popular place to plant grapes. Mr. Inama saw a future and in the early 1960's began to show how great the region is for whites such as this. With delicate notes of pear, white peach, and minerality, this delight pairs well with sushi.
Grape • Soave
Place • Soave, Italy
FYI • The grape and the region it is from share the same name.
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.
Domaine Fabrice Gasnier Les GravesDomaine Fabrice Gasnier Les Graves
From the lower elevation portion of this vineyard, Les Graves, or Gravel, is a fantastic expression of this grape. Delicious blueberry and black currant notes with a hint of violet pairs nicely with roasted chicken or grilled salmon.
Grape • Cabernet Franc
Place • Chinon, France
FYI • Received biodynamic Demeter status in 2009.
as good as it gets
Roger Sabon LiracRoger Sabon Lirac
This silky, elegant showing from Lirac demonstrates that the Rhone can produce approachable but firm reds in their infancy. This family operation tends to harvest with lower ripeness levels. This decision makes for a well-rounded and expressive wine. Why not try it with your next dinner featuring lamb shank?
Grape • Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Carignan
Place • Rhone, France
FYI • Lirac is in the southernmost part of the Rhone Valley.
Colpetrone Montefalco SagrantinoColpetrone Montefalco Sagrantino
This sometimes overlooked region is home to one of Italy's most powerful varietals, Sagrantino. It often takes years to come into it's own and this offering from Colpetrone is their current release at nearly a decade old! Incredibly well structured with brambleberries, leather and spice it pairs well with goat dishes.
Grape • Sagrantino
Place • Montefalco, Italy
FYI • This region is known as "the belly of the belly" of Italy
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.
