"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
"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 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 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
"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

wine for everyday moments
Castillo de Monjardin "La Cantera"Castillo de Monjardin "La Cantera"
The 70 year-old Garnacha vines used for this wine are part of the story that speaks to the remarkable depth of this red. The unique micro-climate in these foothills near the French border is the other. A well structured wine with hints of blackberries, this hearty wine pairs well with paella and stews.
Grape • Garnacha
Place • Navarra, Spain
FYI • La Cantera translates to "quarry."
Marques de Moral CrianzaMarques de Moral Crianza
Cultivating wine in these ancient lands goes back to the 3rd century. Today Marques makes memorable wines in a modern fashion. This expressive red is aged 6 months in American oak. Look for notes of strawberry, spice, and cocoa. Pairs well with grilled foods.
Grape • Tempranillo
Place • Valdepenas, Spain
FYI • Locally Tempranillo is known as Cencibel.
Bodegas Borsao Monte OtonBodegas Borsao Monte Oton
The concept of wine cooperatives is important in this part of Spain and in 2001 three combined to create Bodegas Borsao. At the forefront of modern wine making in Spain their wines over-deliver in each category. Lively minerality and black fruit make this a perfect pairing with grilled veggies and meats.
Grape • Garnacha
Place • Campo de Borja
FYI • This ancient area is associated with the Aragon Kingdom.
a touch of pedigree
Wither Hills RoseWither Hills Rose
This elegant rose is incredibly pleasing. It's the kind of wine that is released and by September we'll all be a bit sad because the vintage is out-of-stock for the season. For now we can celebrate it's watermelon hue with bright flavor of summer berries. Enjoy pool-side or with salmon salad.
Grape • Pinot Noir
Place • Marlborough, New Zealand
FYI • Named after the mountains that border the vineyards.
Chateau Haut MaginetChateau Haut Maginet
The charming Jolivet's produce this refreshing red on vineyards that sprawl along hillsides that are at the highest point of the Gironde. Well-structured and giving this wine has notes of plum. This wine pairs surprisingly well with pulled-pork and Asian style pork chops!
Grape • Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc
Place • Bordeaux, France
FYI • Bordeaux is the 9th largest city in France.
Andrian Finado PGAndrian Finado PG
Growing in the shadow of Mount Gantkofel, and therefore an even cooler zone than surrounding vineyards, means the grapes need to stay on the vine well into September. The resulting wine is pure genius full of minerality and some hints of stone fruit. Pairs well with shellfish.
Grape • Pinot Grigio
Place • Alto Adige, Italy
FYI • This is the most northern wine growing region in Italy.
as good as it gets
Dom. Michel Juillot Bourgogne BlancDom. Michel Juillot Bourgogne Blanc
This fourth generation family estate is nestled upon clayey limestone in the village of Mercurey, That is part of the reason for it's delicious quality. The other reason of course is due to the attentive hands of father and son duo, Michel and Laurent. Rounded and supple, pairs well with white meat dishes.
Grape • Chardonnay
Place • Burgundy, France
FYI • Mercurey, the most important village in Cote Challonaise.
Rapsani Terra PetraRapsani Terra Petra
For several generations the Thymiopoulus family have worked the lands of Rapsani which became one of Greece's first official appellations in 1971. The climate and soil here are perfect for producing gorgeous red wines. Deep crimson color gives way to a highly aromatic wine. Try with roasted lamb or mushroom risotto.
Grape • Xinomavro, Krasto, Stavroto
Place • Larissa, Greece
FYI • Grown on the foothills of Mt. Olympus.
Weingut Robert Weil KabinettWeingut Robert Weil Kabinett
Founded in 1875 it is one of this region's "younger" estates. Sourced from grapes inside and adjoining their single-vineyard sites Kiedrich Wasseros and Sangrub. Complex and layered with exotic fruits, lemon zest and the expected minerality this wine is known for. Pairs well with pork, poultry and fresh cheeses.
Grape • Riesling
Place • Rheingau, Germany
FYI • The Rheingau makes up only 3% of German vineyards.
