"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
"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
"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
"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
"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
"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 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

wine for everyday moments
Farina RossoFarina Rosso
With loads of black cherry, raisins and anise, this red delivers on multiple fronts. Full of fruit and built with a solid mid-tannic structure it is able to pair easily with everything from summer tomatoes to peaches wrapped in prosciutto to Sunday's spaghetti supper.
Grape • Corvina, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot
Place • Veneto, Italy
FYI • The regional capital of Veneto is Venice.
Beau-Rivage BlancBeau-Rivage Blanc
A family-owned winery that started in 1870, Borie-Manoux is long associated with quality wines made along the banks of Bordeaux two tributary rivers to the Gironde. Like a bright spring day, this is reminiscent of fresh new grass sprouting in April. Pairs well with shrimp cocktail.
Grape • Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Muscadelle
Place • Bordeaux, France
FYI • Beau-Rivage means "beautiful shore."
Oxford Landing ShirazOxford Landing Shiraz
Owned by the Hill-Smith Family, the 650 acres they have under vine is an impressive undertaking. The sandy soils help provide the right conditions to showcase the plum and blueberry notes. Incredibly easy to drink. Pairs well with hamburgers.
Grape • Shiraz
Place • South Australia, Australia
FYI • The winery was founded in 1958.
a touch of pedigree
Venica Collio Pinot GrigioVenica Collio Pinot Grigio
Nestled in the north-east corner of Italy is this acclaimed family run estate. One of the things that makes this white so memorable is it's beautiful copper hue. This is a REAL pinot grigio full of stone fruit, especially peach. Deliciously pairs with shrimp scampi.
Grape • Pinot Grigio
Place • Friuli, Italy
FYI • Jesera means "little lake."
Villa Rosa Gavi di GaviVilla Rosa Gavi di Gavi
Long favored by restauranteurs for it's ability to go with countless dishes, Gavi di Gavi is still considered the crown jewel of Piemontese whites. With elegant floral notes and a hint of melon this pairs well with a host of dishes from roast pork loin to lemon chicken to grilled shrimp.
Grape • Cortese
Place • Piedmont, Italy
FYI • The first documentation of this grape dates to 1659.
Müller Grossman Grüner Veltliner Großer SatzMüller Grossman Grüner Veltliner Großer Satz
Few places grow grüner veltliner and even fewer (actually nobody) who do it as well as the Austrians. From the traditional winemaking region Kremstal comes a perfect example of why this is the darling grape of this country. With bright acidity and minerality, pair this with fish, light past dishes or simply as is.
Grape • Grüner Veltliner
Place • Kremstal, Austria
FYI • Austria’s most important white grape.
as good as it gets
Champagne Trouillard Extra SelectionChampagne Trouillard Extra Selection
This family owned winery started in 1896 and continues to release excellent wine blended from the three main varietals of Champagne. The fabled chalk soils of the region shine through in this full-bodied style with notes of hazelnuts and almond. Elegant on it's own or serve with duck terrine.
Grape • Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, Chardonnay
Place • Champagne, France
FYI • Reims is the capital of Champagne.
Dom. la Roubine GigondasDom. la Roubine Gigondas
Eric - a popular figure having previously served as a Paris fireman - and his wife Sophie Ughetto started this winery in 1990 along the foothills of the Dentelles de Montimirail. This is everything you want from this region - controlled power with layers of anise and garrigue. Pairs well with cassoulet.
Grape • Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre
Place • Rhone Valley, France
FYI • Eric is currently the Mayor of Gigondas.
Fabienne Cottagnoud Caves des TilleulsFabienne Cottagnoud Caves des Tilleuls
The Cottagnoud's are traditionalists who push boundaries. Working with the schist and granite soils found in their small village, they produce a pinot noir that is not at all Burgundian but reflects the fresh, cool mountain climate they are found in. Notes of raspberry and casis with an expressive minerality.
Grape • Pinot Noir
Place • Vetroz, Switzerland
FYI • Nearly all Swiss wine is consumed within Switzerland.
