"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
"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 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
"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
"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
"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
"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

wine for everyday moments
Conde Villar Tapada de VillarConde Villar Tapada de Villar
Spending four months in oak barrels gives this red the extra structure that makes it so delicious. These grapes are indigenous to Portugal and the backbone of their table wine production. Aromatic and well balanced with hints of blueberry and vanilla this pairs well with marinated flank steak.
Grape • Alicante Bouschet, Touriga Nacional, Aragonez
Place • Alentejo, Portugal
FYI • Alentejo means "beyond the Tagus river."
Owned by the Burch family and nestled in to nearby world famous Margaret River, their wines are meticulously made. Loads of melon and tropical make this a sure fit when pairing with richer fish such as grilled swordfish.
Grape • Chardonnay
Place • Western Australia, Chardonnay
FYI • MadFish is a bay where two tides meet.
Fondo Antico BiancoFondo Antico Bianco
A young winery by Italian standards, Fondo Antico opened its doors in 1995. They have consistently produced this vibrant refreshing white made from indigenous varietals. Loads of citrus and pineapple, this blend is a nice alternative for those wanting a break from chardonnay or sauvignon blanc. Great with seafood.
Grape • Grillo, Inzola, Grecanico
Place • Sicily, Italy
FYI • Mt. Etna is Sicily’s wine region likened to Burgundy.
a touch of pedigree
These hand-harvested grapes (and that is TOUGH work) come from some of the original plantings in Casablanca. Despite its proximity to the equator the cool misty nights help promote the vibrancy in these wines. Elegant, crisp and refreshing, try it with grilled shrimp.
Grape • Sauvignon Blanc
Place • Casablanca Valley, Chile
FYI • This valley is the fastest growing wine region in Chile.
Famiglie Valpolicella RipassoFamiglie Valpolicella Ripasso
At the southern end of the Dolomites in Northern Italy are the rolling hills of the Veneto. The region is famed for several styles of wine but this is among the most famous. Wine that is passed over dried grapes gives it's distinctive and delicious flavor. Try with a homemade meat sauce or mushroom risotto.
Grape • Corvina, Rondinella, Molinara
Place • Veneto, Italy
FYI • Veneto produces more wine than any other region in Italy.
Chiarli Grasparosssa Amabile LambruscoChiarli Grasparosssa Amabile Lambrusco
The pop sets the mood for this sparkling red that is from a family run business that is considered among the very best for this style. The range of Lambrusco's is wide but this sweeter version goes well with dessert but can also counter spicier foods - like a spicy Italian meatball.
Grape • Lambrusco
Place • Emilia-Romagna, Italy
FYI • Amabile indicates this is off-dry.
as good as it gets
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.
Stewart Napa Valley MerlotStewart Napa Valley Merlot
Founded in 2000, this family operation has excellence in mind at all times. In their words: respect the terroir, source the best fruit, strive for perfection, and embrace the elegance of the human touch. That pretty much sums it up. Look for plum, kitchen spice, and cedar. Pairs well with ribeye.
Grape • Merlot
Place • Napa Valley, California
FYI • The son, James, left the world of TV to get into wine.
Catena Cabernet Sauvignon San CarlosCatena Cabernet Sauvignon San Carlos
The four high-elevation vineyards that are used to make this wine each provide their own unique marker. From black currant to black pepper to the aromatics and minerality, this is a well structured red with a long finish. Pair with steak or lamb.
Grape • Cabernet Sauvignon
Place • Mendoza, Argentina
FYI • Nicola Catena founded the winery in 1902.
