"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 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 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
"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
"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 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
"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 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'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
Valle Reale Montepulciano D'AbruzzoValle Reale Montepulciano D'Abruzzo
The Pizzolo family vineyards are uniquely located within one of Italy's most stunning national parks. The climate here is completely different from the rest of the region. This wine is rich, fragrant, explosive - lots of blackberry and black licorice. Great with red sauce and grilled eggplant or meatballs.
Grape • Montepulciano
Place • Abruzzo, Italy
FYI • More than 65% of Abruzzo is considered mountainous.
Cousino Macul MerlotCousino Macul Merlot
Founded in 1856 and still family owned. The encroachment of the capital Santiago forced the family to find vineyards further south in the Maipo Valley. All of their wines com from two estates there. While distinctly Chilean there is a heavy influence from Bordeaux oenology. Bright berries and plum, pair with brie.
Grape • Merlot
Place • Maipo Valley, Chile
FYI • The first vineyards in the Maipo Valley date to 1540.
Ch. Canteloup Cotes de BlayeCh. Canteloup Cotes de Blaye
Despite that fact that this blend is from the right bank it has the body, depth, and character to go up against it's left bank brethren. This is a classic Bordeaux with loads of cassis, plum, and licorice. Pairs nicely with beef in red sauce.
Grape • Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot
Place • Bordeaux, France
FYI • The river that runs through Bordeaux is the Gironde.
a touch of pedigree
Thevenet Saint Véran ‘Clos de l’Ermitage VV’Thevenet Saint Véran ‘Clos de l’Ermitage VV’
This wine is made from the oldest vines in the family’s stable of vineyards. A wine of this caliber is in a league of its own and can easily cellar for the next three years. Superb in every way with hints of buttered pear, honeysuckle, apricots and smoky limestone. Pair with chevre, chicken in cream sauce or fish.
Grape • Chardonnay
Place • Burgundy, France
FYI • Saint Véran AOC wines can only be made with chardonnay.
Pala Monica FioriPala Monica Fiori
The beautiful setting where this wine comes from is reflected in the bottle. Produced by the Pala family from a varietal found almost entirely on Sardinia it is made using stainless steel and concrete tanks. It has an attractive violet color with notes of licorice. Pairs well with meaty dishes and fatty fish.
Grape • Monica
Place • Serdiana, Sardinia
FYI • Sardinia is the Mediterranean's second largest island.
Claude Vialade Vielles VignesClaude Vialade Vielles Vignes
Nestled in one of the most important spots in southern France, this Cotes Catalanes red is a superb example of a 100% carignan wine. Produced using grapes from 50 year-old vines this is full of blackberry, crushed dried violets, and licorice. Pair with your favorite duck dish.
Grape • Carignan
Place • Languedoc-Rousillon, France
FYI • Carignan is originally from Spain.
as good as it gets
Broadbent Madeira VerdelhoBroadbent Madeira Verdelho
Historically one of the most popular grapes planted on the island. It is common among Madeira houses to source their grapes from numerous growers as most do not own their vineyards. This dry style makes for an excellent table wine. With notes of orange citrus and a hint of walnut try with meat dishes.
Grape • Verdelho
Place • Madeira, Portugal
FYI • The low trellises used in Madeira are called latada.
Catena Cabernet Sauvignon San CarlosCatena Cabernet Sauvignon San Carlos
The four high-elevation vineyards that are used to make this wine each provide their own unique marker. From black currant to black pepper to the aromatics and minerality, this is a well structured red with a long finish. Pair with steak or lamb.
Grape • Cabernet Sauvignon
Place • Mendoza, Argentina
FYI • Nicola Catena founded the winery in 1902.
Archery Summit PGArchery Summit PG
Archery Summit lays claim as the first winery in the New World to plant pinot gris - and we thank them for it! Aromatic with beautiful notes of honeydew and cantaloupe, this delightful wine pairs well with soft cheeses and oysters.
Grape • Pinot Gris
Place • Willamette Valley, Oregon
FYI • Pinot Gris and Pinot Grigio are the same grape.
