"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
"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
"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
"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
"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
"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
Pierre Henri SBPierre Henri SB
Spread over 50 acres in the rolling hills of southern France, this wine captures the sun and breeze of the Mediterranean. With crisp notes of citrus, namely grapefruit. This pairs well with sushi, fish as well as goat cheese.
Grape • Sauvignon Blanc
Place • Languedoc, France
FYI • The word Sauvignon comes from the word savage.
Finca AntiguaFinca Antigua
Finca Antigua means "Old Estate" and was given this name in honor of the old vines that grow here. This robust red has notes of thyme and fennel due to the wild herbs that grow in the area. Delicious with a hearty stew.
Grape • Cabernet Sauvignon
Place • La Mancha, Spain
FYI • La Mancha is the largest wine region in the world.
Carpineto Dogajolo BiancoCarpineto Dogajolo Bianco
Carpineto was founded in 1967 by two mavericks who saw great potential in showing the world wines from Tuscany. Only a small fraction of their production is white wine but how glorious it is. This medium-bodied white is full of aromatics and exotic fruit. Pair with chicken and fish.
Grape • Chardonnay, Grechetto, Sauvignon Blanc
Place • Tuscany, Italy
FYI • Dogajolo means "stave" in Italian.
a touch of pedigree
La Vinyeta Heus BlancoLa Vinyeta Heus Blanco
When La Vinyeta set out to produce this wine on their sustainably managed vineyards, they wanted to create a wine that captured the "young, environment-friendly spririt" here. The result is this sensational white with pronounced citrus notes, making this a great pairing with seafood or goat cheese.
Grape • Garnacha Blanco, Xarel-lo, Macabeo
Place • Emporda, Spain
FYI • Emporda is the most northeastern part of Spain.
Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona RossoCiacci Piccolomini d'Aragona Rosso
One of the most sought after producers in Italy, the brother and sister duo inherited the operation after their father died in 2004. Plush and round with notes of leather, plum, and cherry, this is a very satisfying wine. Pairs well with cheese and charcuterie.
Grape • Sangiovese, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon
Place • Tuscany, France
FYI • Members of the organic farming group "Lotta Integrata."
Heinrich ZweigeltHeinrich Zweigelt
The Heinrich's founded their winery in 1990 and converted to biodynamic viticulture in 2006. Extended contact on the lees provides a truly unique expression of Burgenland. Aromas of black cherry, baking spice, and a hint of smoke make this wine a perfect match with baked chicken, bacon, or even with greens.
Grape • Zwigelt
Place • Burgenland, Austria
FYI • This grape was developed in 1922 by Fritz Zweigelt.
as good as it gets
Dom. Goisot "Corps de Garde"Dom. Goisot "Corps de Garde"
Absolutely brilliant white that delivers tremendous bang for the buck. The Goisot family has a long history of outstanding wine making. A kiss of french oak is behind this masculine style wine that easily has a few years in the bottle to fully mature. This is a reserve bottling made only in top vintages.
Grape • Chardonnay
Place • Burgundy, France
FYI • Saint Bris was once formally part of Chablis.
Pera-Grave TintoPera-Grave Tinto
The granite stone of this region plays a key role in the flavor of these wines. Since Roman times this area has produced high quality wines. This richly textured red exudes layers of chocolate, blackberry, and cassis. With a long finish to match consider pairing with a big protein.
Grape • Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Alicante Bouschet
Place • Alentejo, Portugal
FYI • Peramanca means oscillating stone
This state-of-the-art operation includes everything from gravity-fed vinification to solar power to rainwater harvesting. Modern techniques and top notch south-facing slopes are behind this stellar wine. Full of rich, ripe berry fruit with a hint of tobacco leaf it is amazing with roast chicken.
Grape • Pinot Noir
Place • Willamette Valley, Oregon
FYI • Willamette rhymes with Damn-It! (as they say)
