"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'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
"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
"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
"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 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
"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
"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

wine for everyday moments
The Originals RedThe Originals Red
Known as “The Originals” because the grapes are grown in the same soil and latitude as their original ancestry. If you could bottle the fun and irreverent attitude of the west coast, this would be the result. A touch of pepper, raspberry and eucalyptus, this wine pairs well with most foods.
Grape • Syrah, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon
Place • Columbia Valley, Washington
FYI • The Columbia Valley grows 99% of the grapes in WA state.
Tortoise Creek "Jams Blend"Tortoise Creek "Jams Blend"
Jam's Blend refers to the creators of Tortoise Creek, Janie and Mel Master. The touch of Viogner added to the wine helps round out it's white floral notes while the rest of the heavy lifting is left to Chardonnay. The creamy, refreshing nature of this white screams "pair me with cream-based pastas please!"
Grape • Chardonnay, Viogner
Place • Lodi, California
FYI • Robert Mondavi grew up in Lodi.
The vineyard for this wine is grown near the remains of the beautiful della Scala family villa not far from Verona. This region is known for it's delicious whites as this one proves. Aromas of fresh flowers and a hint of peach make this a perfect aperitif. It also pairs well with ceviche and sushi.
Grape • Pinot Grigio
Place • Veneto, Italy
FYI • The Veneto is the NE region of Italy.
a touch of pedigree
Colpetrone Rosso di MontefalcoColpetrone Rosso di Montefalco
At the end of a chain of hills just east of the Sibillini Mountains is a place as special to Italy as Tuscany or Piedmont. Here, Montefalco is home to the robust grape sagrantino. By blending it with sangiovese, a "lighter" version is released with prominent notes of plum and spice. Pair with charcuterie.
Grape • Sangiovese, Sagrantino, Merlot
Place • Umbria, Italy
FYI • Sagrantino is one of Italy's oldest varietals.
Dixies & Bass SBDixies & Bass SB
A uniquely "west coast" story that seems based on the movie "Bottle Shock" with the marriage of two wine worlds - France and the USA. Dixie and Bass set out to make wine that is emblematic of the amazing terroir of Washington state. Look for notes of white fig and rosemary. Pairs well with goat cheese.
Grape • Sauvignon Blanc
Place • Columbia Valley, Washington
FYI • The owner's Mardi Grad costumes inspired the label.
Ch. St. Jean Graves BlancCh. St. Jean Graves Blanc
From a parcel of land situated between vineyards known for their world-class dessert wine, comes this dry white that dances on the palate. With beautiful floral notes and a hint of citrus this is great as an aperitif or with a salad nicoise.
Grape • Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon
Place • Bordeaux, France
FYI • Graves translates to "gravelly land."
as good as it gets
Jeff Cohn Cellars The ImposterJeff Cohn Cellars The Imposter
Sourced from vineyards in four counties, the eclectic mix of grapes that goes into making this wine is a fan favorite every vintage. This is Rhone Valley meets Cali Zin. A medium-bodied delight that is luscious yet balanced with loads of rich, ripe dark fruit, chocolate and coffee. Enjoy by a fire or with a rich stew.
Grape • Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Syrah, and more...
Place • Sonoma, California
FYI • This wine is made from nine different varietals.
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.
Avignonesi GrifiAvignonesi Grifi
The structure of cabernet sauvignon and the floral notes of sangiovese come together in this, the flagship wine from Avignonesi. Produced only in the best vintages this full-bodied red has notes of plum, black cherry, and dark chocolate. Pairs well with pappardelle al cinghiale.
Grape • Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese
Place • Tuscany, Italy
FYI • Grifi means griffon in Italian.
