"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
"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 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
"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
"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 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
"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
a few faves
Delicious wine delivered to your door.
wine for everyday moments
Beau-Rivage BlancBeau-Rivage Blanc
A family-owned winery that started in 1870, Borie-Manoux is long associated with quality wines made along the banks of Bordeaux two tributary rivers to the Gironde. Like a bright spring day, this is reminiscent of fresh new grass sprouting in April. Pairs well with shrimp cocktail.
Grape • Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Muscadelle
Place • Bordeaux, France
FYI • Beau-Rivage means "beautiful shore."
Sagelands CSSagelands CS
The varied microclimates in this part of Washington state help foster great cabernet and the result is this standout red with notes of leather, chocolate, and sweet vanilla. Pairs well with burgers, pizza, or blackened chicken.
Grape • Cabernet Sauvignon
Place • Columbia Valley, Washington
FYI • The winery was established in 1984.
Flor De CrastoFlor De Crasto
A number of styles emerge from the Duoro each year and the climate is to thank. As the locals say, "nine months of winter and three months of hell." The style here is a smooth-bodied red offering notes of blackberry cobbler, dried cherries, and cocoa. Pairs well with good home cooking. (Pot Roast!)
Grape • Tinta Roriz, Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional
Place • Douro, Portugal
FYI • Among the first quintas to bottle/export it's own wine.
a touch of pedigree
Ch. Coupe Roses BastideCh. Coupe Roses Bastide
Most of the vineyards that belong to the husband and wife duo are in an arid, windswept place in the highlands of the Mediterranean. An unquestionable delight year after year, this wine is full blueberry with the tarry black notes courtesy of the Carignan. Terrific with cured meats or sauteed mushrooms.
Grape • Carignan, Grenache, Syrah
Place • Minervois, France
FYI • The "chateau" is an old auto service station.
Dom. Des Anges Archange RougeDom. Des Anges Archange Rouge
The long hot summers of this region are exactly what's needed to allow the grapes within to shine. Different fermentation and maceration times for each varietal has helped to create a stunning wine. Dark cherry with a nod of violet, this pairs well with duck or other game.
Grape • Syrah, Grenache
Place • Rhone, France
FYI • This vineyard is Irish owned.
Seguin-Manuel Bourgogne BlancSeguin-Manuel Bourgogne Blanc
With most of the fruit coming from their Meursault vineyards, this is chardonnay "done right." Certainly there are more expensive Burgundies but this one punches way above it's class. Vibrant minerality and a hint of honeysuckle, this is perfectly served as an aperitif or with white meat.
Grape • Chardonnay
Place • Burgundy, France
FYI • Certified organic vineyards since 2015.
as good as it gets
Tyrrell's Heathcote Rufus StoneTyrrell's Heathcote Rufus Stone
Bright, fruit driven, and rewarding from a place that has the know-how on making a full-bodied red. Regularly a favorite in Australia this french-oaked red is full of dark fruit, black pepper, and cassis. Pairs nicely with a quality steak...try it with a peppercorn sauce too!
Grape • Syrah
Place • Victoria, Australia
FYI • Established in 1858 by an English immigrant.
Tenuta Terre Nere Etna BiancoTenuta Terre Nere Etna Bianco
This wine is predominantly carricante, a grape that loves the rainy conditions and volcanic soil of Mt. Etna. Acidity and a pronounced salinity to the wine are hallmarks of this grape. With a slight herbal quality to it as well, this pairs nicely with swordfish topped with olives.
Grape • Carricante, Catarratto
Place • Sicily, Italy
FYI • Mt. Etna is an active volcano.
Sailor's GraveSailor's Grave
Named after a Merchant Marine from Wisconsin who served during WWII, this full throttle Napa Cab is a complex wine with notes of vanilla, cocoa powder, kitchen spice and licorice. Pair with a grilled t-bone steak.
Grape • Cabernet Sauvignon
Place • Napa Valley, California
FYI • The Sailor's Grave was a common tattoo among sailors.
