"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 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
"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 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
"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 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 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

wine for everyday moments
E & M BergerE & M Berger
This perennial favorite in a 1L bottle - because you can't get enough of it - is an ode to summer. It is produced by Erich Berger on loess soils in eastern Kremstal. Light, crisp and refreshing with a hint of flowers and stone fruit it is a perfect picnic wine. Pairs well with fish, chicken and pasta salads.
Grape • Gruner Veltliner
Place • Kremstal, Austria
FYI • Sometimes called Gru-Ve (groovy) by industry types.
Considered one of the best value chardonnay based wines in the U.S. Made by Jean-Marc & Eliane Lafage in the south of France it is fermented mainly in stainless steel. This keeps this wine food friendly and one reason restaurants like to pour it by-the-glass. Pairs well with chicken.
Grape • Chardonnay
Place • Roussillon, France
FYI • Most of the wines in this region, 80%, are red.
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
Cederberg ShirazCederberg Shiraz
South African wines are gaining in popularity all the time. It’s in no small part due to wines like this one from Cederberg. Notes of blackberry, vanilla and spice only scratch the surface. Pairs well with game, aged cheddars and gruyere cheeses as well as with dark chocolate.
Grape • Syrah
Place • Cederberg, South Africa
FYI • Stunning rock formations and cedars abound in this area.
Anima NegraAnima Negra
A unique red from a dynamic personality from one of the most beautiful islands in the world. A blend of indigenous varietals along wih Syrah reveal a complex wine full of dark cherry, dried raspberries, and violets. A wine so big it needs a friend: think duck or lamb.
Grape • Callet, Mantonegre-Fogoneu, Syrah
Place • Mallorca, Spain
FYI • Be sure to try Ensaïmada if you visit.
Secateurs RoséSecateurs Rosé
Adi is a South African national treasure. His wine speaks for itself. Despite the very brief maceration period of the syrah, only two hours, this rosé is full of depth. Made from old vines it uniquely displays the minerality in the farm's soil to provide a long finish. Complex red fruit, spice, and rose water. Drink up!
Grape • Cinsault, Syrah
Place • Swartland, South Africa
FYI • Secateurs are pruning shears.
as good as it gets
Bonny Doon Vin Gris de CigareBonny Doon Vin Gris de Cigare
"Made from bespoke grapes and is not a byproduct of red wine production, per se. The essential principle here is that less is truly more. The wine does not overwhelm, it's charms are seductively subtle." - RG Notes of cassis, rose, and strawberry. Pairs great with crab or oysters.
Grape • Grenache, Grenache Blanc, Mourvedre
Place • Santa Cruz, California
FYI • Grapes sourced from different regions in California.
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.
Ca'Viola Dolcetto BarturotCa'Viola Dolcetto Barturot
Giuseppe Caviola, know as Beppe to friends, owns a 33-acre estate in Langa, the best place to grow Dolcetto. The Barturot was among the first wines he produced and is near and dear to his heart. Old vines produce little fruit but certainly deliver on flavor with ripe berry in abundance this is delicious as is.
Grape • Dolcetto
Place • Piedmont, Italy
FYI • Ca'viola means little violet house.
