"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
"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
"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
"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
"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
"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
"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

wine for everyday moments
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.

FYI • Mt. Etna is Sicily’s wine region likened to Burgundy.
Dibon CavaDibon Cava
The Penedes region is Spain’s bubble capital. Producing sparkling wine in the same manner as champagne but often at a fraction of the price it is synonymous with great value. This is a lovely example of cava with notes of minerality and Granny Smith apples. Have with Sunday brunch of course.

Place • Penedes, Spain
FYI • Spain is the second largest producer of sparkling wine.

a touch of pedigree

Deusyls de La PeiraDeusyls de La Peira
This hard to find beauty is the second white from the estate of La Peira. At nearly 10 years-old, this full bodied blend has taken on the complex flavors one would expect from such a wine.

Place • Rhone, France
FYI • Wines from Vacqueyras must be at least 50% Grenache.
