"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 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
"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
"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
"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 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'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

wine for everyday moments
Due Torri PNDue Torri PN
The conditions in northern Italy are just right for this thin-skinned grape that prefers cool over the intense heat found in central and southern Italy. Fresh and light this is full of bright cherry flavors that pairs nicely with a variety of casual food.
Grape • Pinot Noir
Place • Trevenezie, Italy
FYI • This region encompasses Veneto, Friuli, and Alto Adige.
Ch. des Templiers Muscadet Sevre et MainCh. des Templiers Muscadet Sevre et Main
From the most important region for high quality Muscadet comes this delightfuly refreshing white. While the Night Templars use to live at the chapel of this namesake wine, all you will find now are wine makers. Bright minerality allows this to pair superbly with shellfish. Fruit de mer anyone?!
Grape • Muscadet
Place • Loire, France
FYI • This region is named for the two rivers that flow there.
Donna Laura Ali IGTDonna Laura Ali IGT
Lia Tolaini makes this wine from grapes grown in the heart of Chianti Classico. Ali, which means "wings" in Italian is aptly named as this red is flying high with juicy flavors of plum and blackberry. While certainly fit to pair with a pasta and red sauce, this delicious delight is good all on its own.
Grape • Sangiovese
Place • Tuscany, Italy
FYI • A blend of equal parts of Sangiovese clones: F9 & CH20.
a touch of pedigree
Borsao BerolaBorsao Berola
There is an unearthly like beauty in this region that is reminiscent of photos of Mars. The dominant red clay soil with the arthritic looking tendrils of old-vines reaching for the sky is truly something to behold. A robust red full of black fruit. Pairs nicely with a Sunday roast.
Grape • Garnacha, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon
Place • Aragon, Spain
FYI • An area renown for it's Moorish-influenced architecture.
Vinum Red Dirt RedVinum Red Dirt Red
The exact blend of this Rhone-inspired red changes from vintage to vintage but always contains the same combination of varietals. A touch of "California-rustic" shines through this full-bodied wine with supple notes of dark fruit, vanilla, and caramel. Pairs well with lamb, cassoulet, or polenta and mushrooms.
Grape • Syrah, Mourvedre, Grenache
Place • Paso Robles, California
FYI • Paso Robles means "The Pass of the Oaks."
Annabella 5 Red BlendAnnabella 5 Red Blend
Michael Pozzan and his wife started their winery in the early 90's. His interest in wine has roots in his family being in various forms of the business - including bootlegging at one point. Opulent, full-bodied and completely California, notes of black fruit make this great with short-ribs.
Grape • Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Petit Verdot
Place • North Coast, California
FYI • Named after the winemaker's grandmother.
as good as it gets
Bonny Doon Le Cigare VolantBonny Doon Le Cigare Volant
We have gotten particularly adept in allowing for the expression of a wonderful savoriness in Cigare, and a pretty nice mastery of tannins. Recent vintages seem to show more structure than years past. Damson plums and cherry and chocolate. -RG Pairs well with mushrooms.
Grape • Mourvedre, Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault
Place • Central Coast, California
FYI • This wine is an homage to Châteauneuf-du-Pape.
A.A. Badenhorst Family WhiteA.A. Badenhorst Family White
The dynamic personality of Adi Badenhorst shines through each and every on of his wines. This blend of ten varietals is an achievement in complexity. With notes of citrus, peach, honeysuckle, dried herbs and pistachio it will open up over the course of an hour and reveal its many layers. Pair with pork.
Grape • Chenin Blanc, Clairette, Roussanne
Place • Swartland, South Africa
FYI • Swartland is the bread basket of South Africa
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.
