"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
"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 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
"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
"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'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
Domaine Estrade BlancDomaine Estrade Blanc
The bucolic town where these 3rd generation winemakers come from looks straight out of a medieval-town movie set. But the winery is run almost entirely on solar energy - very NOT medieval. Try this refreshing white with regional specialty Roquefort-filled prunes.
Grape • Colombard, Sauvignon Blanc, Ugni Blanc
Place • Gascony, France
FYI • Gascony has a tremendous gastronomic heritage.
Colimoro Montepulciano D'AbruzzoColimoro Montepulciano D'Abruzzo
While this region is centrally located in Italy, it identifies with southern Italian cuisine and culture. This well structured red has layers of dried cherry and cedar. It pairs well with salami and other cured meats and will put a smile on your face.
Grape • Montepulciano
Place • Abruzzo, Italy
FYI • Over half of Abruzzo is designated as national parks.
¡buenas! Viura¡buenas! Viura
Wines from this windy plain, or "meseta" in Spanish, come from the important agricultural area Castilla-La Mancha. Light and lively this wine reflects capturing the sun in each bottle with notes of pear, wild flower and grapefruit. Serve as a sipper at social events or pair with tacos.
Grape • Viura
Place • Castilla-La Mancha
FYI • Buenas is a casual greeting used at social gatherings.
a touch of pedigree
Scarpetta Barbera MonferratoScarpetta Barbera Monferrato
Lachlan and Bobby are two friends so inspired by Friuli they opened a restaurant dedicated to the cuisine from this region in Boulder, CO and then went on to create their own wine label. From the birthplace of Barbera, this red exudes plum, berries and a hint of mushrooms. Pairs well with pork ragu and pasta.
Grape • Barbera
Place • Piedmont, Italy
FYI • Scarpetta means "make the little shoe."
Dom. Des Anges Archange RougeDom. Des Anges Archange Rouge
The long hot summers of this region are exactly what's needed to allow the grapes within to shine. Different fermentation and maceration times for each varietal has helped to create a stunning wine. Dark cherry with a nod of violet, this pairs well with duck or other game.
Grape • Syrah, Grenache
Place • Rhone, France
FYI • This vineyard is Irish owned.
Ministry of the VinteriorMinistry of the Vinterior
The wives of winemaker's Chris and Elijah were college roommates. So long before the "Ministry" became a winery, the two were decade-old friends who regularly drank wine over BBQ. Loaded with layers of blueberry, vanilla, and a hint of coffee. Try with skirt steak...or even chocolate!
Grape • Cabernet Sauvignon
Place • North Coast, California
FYI • California accounts for 90% of US wine production.
as good as it gets
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.
Jose ZuccardiJose Zuccardi
Sebastian Zuccardi created this wine, first released in 2013, in honor of his father Jose Alberto. This expressive wine is made from grapes that grow at approximately 4,000 feet above sea level. With aromas of blackberries and herbs this wine pairs well with steak and chimichurri.
Grape • Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon
Place • Uco Valley, Argentina
FYI • The Uco Valley has over 250 days of sun a year.
Colpetrone Montefalco SagrantinoColpetrone Montefalco Sagrantino
This sometimes overlooked region is home to one of Italy's most powerful varietals, Sagrantino. It often takes years to come into it's own and this offering from Colpetrone is their current release at nearly a decade old! Incredibly well structured with brambleberries, leather and spice it pairs well with goat dishes.
Grape • Sagrantino
Place • Montefalco, Italy
FYI • This region is known as "the belly of the belly" of Italy
