"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
"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 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'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
"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
"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 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

wine for everyday moments
La Fiera MontepulcianoLa Fiera Montepulciano
Now in it's third generation of owners, the Botter family produces environmentally friendly wines. The horse on the label is a nod to the fairs famous in the region the family comes from. This ruby-red sipper has notes of blueberry and violets. Pair with Arrosticini.
Grape • Montepulciano d'Abruzzo
Place • Abruzzo, Italy
FYI • Arrosticini, mutton skewers, are Abruzzo's famed dish.
Los Dos RedLos Dos Red
Blended from two complementary varietals in the hot continental region of Campo de Borja in Spain's NE. The "cierzo" wind cools the vineyard at night allowing the grapes to retain their brightness. An easy drinking red that pairs well with casual eats.
Grape • Grenache, Syrah
Place • Campo de Borja
FYI • Los Dos is Spanish for "both" or "the two."
Cholila RanchCholila Ranch
A fascinating part of the world, Patagonia has coasts on three oceans. Along with it's mountains, it has a dynamic geography but the wine region itself is very arid. With notes of plum, vanilla, and mulberry, this pairs well with grilled steak or pork tenderloin.
Grape • Malbec
Place • Patagonia, Argentina
FYI • Named for the ranch owned by Butch Cassidy and the SK.
a touch of pedigree
Hahn PNHahn PN
The heavy fog that rolls in each morning only to blow off around mid-day helps protect this fragile grape. The result is a silky red with flavors of cherry, raspberry, and a hint of oak. Will pair nicely with some mac and cheese or a ham dinner.
Grape • Pinot Noir
Place • Monterey, California
FYI • This area lies within the Santa Lucia mountain range.
Ermitage Cuvee Sainte AgnesErmitage Cuvee Sainte Agnes
As James E. Wilson wrote about the soil here: "the complexity and variety of soil types in the Languedoc is attributed to the geological phenomenon known as the “Languedoc-Roussillon Symphony.” The earthiness of this wine pairs well at cellar temperature with a beef stew.
Grape • Syrah, Mourvedre, Grenache, Cinsault
Place • Languedoc, France
FYI • Named after the limestone "peak" aka "pic" above the vyd.
Ch. St. Jean Graves BlancCh. St. Jean Graves Blanc
From a parcel of land situated between vineyards known for their world-class dessert wine, comes this dry white that dances on the palate. With beautiful floral notes and a hint of citrus this is great as an aperitif or with a salad nicoise.
Grape • Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon
Place • Bordeaux, France
FYI • Graves translates to "gravelly land."
as good as it gets
El ZarzalEl Zarzal
Bodega Emilio Moro is located in the rolling green hills of northwestern Spain. The loamy soils are ideal for planting godello, a varietal not often enjoyed outside of the Iberian Peninsula. With notes of citrus, almond, and a hint of white pepper this is ideal with baked fish.
Grape • Godello
Place • Bierzo, Spain
FYI • The vineyards are located at over 500m.
Hiedler LoessHiedler Loess
This small family operation makes some of the most texturally compelling wines in Austria. This is certainly attributed to Ludwig's unique approach to winemaking: spontaneous fermentations, without temperature control, enzymes or even sulphur. Elegant minerality allows this to pair well with trout.
Grape • Gruner Veltliner
Place • Kamptal , Austria
FYI • Loess is a wind blown mineral deposit.
Stark Conde Three PinesStark Conde Three Pines
Nestled in Jonkershoek Valley, this stunning winery is a family-run operation. Small production wines that are hand harvested with minimal intervention is part of the success of this delicious wine. Wonderful rich structure with notes of dark chocolate, coffee, and cherry tobacco. Pair with filet mignon.
Grape • Cabernet Sauvignon
Place • Stellenbosch, South Africa
FYI • 80% of the estates production is red wine.
