"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 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 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
"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
"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
"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 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
a few faves
Delicious wine delivered to your door.
wine for everyday moments
Sourced from three vineyard sites on the arid side of Washington state. This crowd pleaser is full of rich, ripe fruit, notably raspberries, cherries, and a touch of vanilla. Its silky finish helps it pair nicely with most things off the BBQ.
Grape • Merlot
Place • Columbia Valley, Washington
FYI • Columbia Valley contains 99% of WA's vineyards.
Mt. MonsterMt. Monster
Since 1851 the Bryson family has worked the red tinged soils in the Padthaway Valley. This is a great example of where wines from the country are headed. Balanced with attractive berry flavors and hints of violets on the nose, this will pair great with most items off the grill.
Grape • Shiraz
Place • South Australia, Australia
FYI • South Australia is among the most arid in the country.
Carlos Serres CrianzaCarlos Serres Crianza
Carlos Serres was a pioneer. He was a key figure in exporting riojas in the early 1900's and the winery is still run by his family today. Well-balanced with a fresh and red fruit zing, this versatile wine pairs well with a variety of foods such as vegetables, paella, cheeses, and white meat.
Grape • Tempranillo
Place • Rioja, Spain
FYI • Crianza wines must age at the winery for at least 2 yrs.
a touch of pedigree
Farina SoaveFarina Soave
Yes Italy makes some wonderful red wines but when it comes to Italy's NE region, from Venice to the Austrian border, their whites are world class. This is a perfect example with hints of peach, jasmine, and a hint of pineapple. It makes a lovely dance partner with shellfish.
Grape • Garganega, Trebbiano
Place • Veneto, Italy
FYI • An iconic castle marks the horizon in Soave.
Senda Verde MenciaSenda Verde Mencia
Mencia is the famous Spanish red from Bierzo. Prized for it's beautiful aromatics, this has a delightful structure with notes of dark cherry and black currant. Can easily pair with roast chicken or even blackened salmon.
Grape • Mencia
Place • Rias Baixas, Spain
FYI • Mencia is known as Jaen in Portugal.
Dom. Pavillon de Chavannes "Ambassades"Dom. Pavillon de Chavannes "Ambassades"
This winery, in the family since 1861, is managed by the lovely couple Paul and Betty Jambon. In addition to the burst of fruitiness one expects from this classic-Beaujolais, there is also a pronounced minerality influenced by the region's blue granite. Serve with grilled tuna or bean and ham stew.
Grape • Gamay
Place • Beaujolais, France
FYI • This wine is served in French embassies worldwide.
as good as it gets
Barboursville Nebbiolo ReserveBarboursville Nebbiolo Reserve
Founded outside of Charlotesville, VA in 1976 this winery is considered one of the best in the Commonwealth. With Barbaresco serving as inspiration for the wine's style the result is a resounding success. Elegant and aromatic with layers of violet and dark berry. Try with grilled duck breast.
Grape • Nebbiolo
Place • Barboursville, VA
FYI • Govt. officials wanted tobacco planted here not vines.
Emma Zuccardi BonardaEmma Zuccardi Bonarda
A fresh, fruit-driven Bonarda from the famed Zuccardi family. By fermenting and aging in concrete vats instead of oak it allows the grape to showcase the freshness of the varietal. In their words "Emma is an elegant and charming woman with great personality." Pairs well with steak.
Grape • Bonarda
Place • Mendoza, Argentina
FYI • Bonarda is also known as Douce Noir.
Fitapreta Branco da TalhaFitapreta Branco da Talha
This winery is a partnership between two dynamic personalities, one a winemaker, the other a viticulturist. Using a state-of-the-art winery to make the wine but with a nod to the past (aging in talha) this is a smart wine. With earthy notes this pairs well with mushroom soup.
Grape • Roupeiro, Arinto Vaz
Place • Alentajano, Portugal
FYI • Talha is another word for amphora.
