"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
"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
"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
"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 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
"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
"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
Domaine de la FruitièreDomaine de la Fruitière
The Loire valley is home to a diverse number of wines that stretch along the twisting 600 mile-long Loire River. The Lieubeau family works with chardonnay here, not usually found in Muscadet. Their attentiveness coaxes expressions of melon, spice and minerality from it. Pairs marvelously with shellfish.
Grape • Chardonnay
Place • Loire, France
FYI • This vineyard is composed mostly of granite.
Citra Trebbiano D'AbruzzoCitra Trebbiano D'Abruzzo
Since 1973 Citra has produced wines that give a sense of place. It is the efforts of a number of local families who pulled together to make this winery a reality which collectively is an impressive 15,000 acres. This delicately refreshing white has hints of Meyer lemon. Pairs well with oysters or a goat cheese salad.
Grape • Trebbiano
Place • Abruzzo, Italy
FYI • Citra is a Latin adverb meaning "beyond."

The high altitude in this part of SW France with a schist-dominant soil produces naturally low yields. The pair of siblings who run things get the most out of what fruit nature does allow. An absolutely delicious wine with juicy notes of black fruit and a thrilling hint of black tapenade. Pair with beef stew and olives.
Grape • Grenache, Syrah, Carignan
Place • Languedoc, France
FYI • This region is sometimes described as French Tuscany.
Vinum Red Dirt RedVinum Red Dirt Red
The exact blend of this Rhone-inspired red changes from vintage to vintage but always contains the same combination of varietals.

Grape • Syrah, Mourvedre, Grenache
Place • Paso Robles, California
