"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
"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
"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 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 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 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 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

wine for everyday moments
Excelsior Cabernet SauvignonExcelsior Cabernet Sauvignon
Nestled along the Breede River at the tip of South Africa comes this immediately approachable cab with notes of blueberry and plum. Super versatile along a campfire roasting sausages or at weekend barbecue with hamburgers on the grill.
Grape • Cabernet Sauvignon
Place • Western Cape, South Africa
FYI • Excelsior means "ever upward" in Latin.
False BayFalse Bay
THE grape of South Africa, this is from an arid part of the western cape. The crossing of pinot noir and cinsault resulted in this dramatic varietal that's full of smokey notes up front and blackberry on the finish. Great with anything off the grill.
Grape • Pinotage
Place • Western Cape, South Africa
FYI • The Western Cape borders two oceans - Atlantic and Indian
Stella PGStella PG
Cheerful, bright, and full of vibrant flavors of lime zest and minerality. Aged in stainless steel before heading home to you. This easy sipper pairs well with pool-side parties as well as arugula and goat cheese salad.
Grape • Pinot Grigio
Place • Sicily, Italy
FYI • Spaghetti was invented in Sicily.
a touch of pedigree
Marco Capineti Capolemole BiancoMarco Capineti Capolemole Bianco
Lazio vineyards are located just outside of Rome. While other wine regions in Italy get noticed, this area and ancient grape is often overlooked. Grown organically on volcanic soil by the Capineti family, this wine is full of aromas of minerality, peach, and apricot. Pair with grilled swordfish and peaches.
Grape • Bellone
Place • Lazio, Italy
FYI • This grape is also known as Cacchione.
di Lenardo Chardonnaydi Lenardo Chardonnay
The di Lenardo's are the only producers in Friuli to use the "Musque" clone. It is also the only wine from this clone to win the coveted Tre Bicchieri. All of that is to say this is NOT your typical chardonnay. Complex aromas of flowers, fruit, and sambuco shine through. Pairs well with halibut, trout, and soft cheeses.
Grape • Chardonnay
Place • Friuli, Italy
FYI • The first vintage of this wine: 1993.
Chasing Lions Pinot NoirChasing Lions Pinot Noir
This newest release, from the producers of the extremely popular Cab Sauv, is a fantastic find in the often pricey Pinot Noir category. Slightly jammy with notes of plum, ripe fig, blackberry, and vanilla. This is as versatile a wine for a cornucopia type dinner table as there is...think Thanksgiving.
Grape • Pinot Noir
Place • North Coast, California
FYI • The label name is a nod to the owner's grandfather.
as good as it gets
Dom. NicoDom. Nico
Produced from grapes grown at altitude, this is considered the world's first extreme high-altitude parcel of Pinot Noir. Made with an unmistakable nod to France, this elegant red has notes of thyme and kitchen spice. The minerality allows it to pair with a number of dishes such as duck or pheasant.
Grape • Pinot Noir
Place • Mendoza, Argentina
FYI • Named after Nicola, the winemakers daughter.
Selbach Oster Zeltinger Alte RebenSelbach Oster Zeltinger Alte Reben
The Wine Advocate says it perfectly: "This is world-class Mosel Riesling with an almost endless finish. It is from one of the very best parcels in the Zeltinger Sonnenhur and this shows why. Great aging potential! Round, piquant and highly elegant on the palate." Pairs well with fish.
Grape • Riesling
Place • Mosel, Germany
FYI • Ur-Alte means extremely old.
La Rioja Alta AranaLa Rioja Alta Arana
With over 130 years of experience La Rioja Alta is synonymous with not just outstanding wines but being consistent year in and year out - not something other wineries in Rioja can claim. Enjoy now or cellar for another decade this will continue to evolve. Truffle, leather, tobacco notes - pair with NY strip.
Grape • Tempranillo
Place • Rioja, Spain
FYI • Earliest record of grapes in this region dates to 873.
