Pairing great people with incredible wines while giving back to worthy causes.

We’re here for you.

Wine lists and pairing can be an intimidating process. Even if you know what you like, trying something new can be daunting. There is no mystery in choosing great wines.

Grape Intentions makes the wine purchasing experience convenient, simple and fun by choosing vintages suited to each individual’s unique palate and preferences. Each best-in-class wine in the Grape Intentions portfolio over-delivers on taste and quality.

Who are we and how do we do it?

Grape Intentions is the brainchild of Brett H. Philpott-Freeman, a wine professional and culinarian with over 20 years experience selecting the perfect wine to suit each individual’s particular taste profile. Brett personally matches each bottle to each unique flavor profile.

Brett began his oenophile credentials taking wine classes at his alma mater Virginia Tech. He graduated from the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY, where he studied wine under legendary sommelier Michael Weiss. Brett then made his name internationally as a pastry chef, working under acclaimed chefs including Gordon Ramsay, Yannick Cam, and Michael Bourdain.

Brett previously worked as Director of Operations for Best Cellars, a chain of “wine friendly” stores on the East coast, and as the General Manager of Burgundy Wine Company in New York City.

Brett is also a member of the James Beard Foundation and the Court of Master Sommeliers.

Making a meaningful impact.

Grape Intentions also embodies Brett’s love of Philanthropy and paying it forward. Each order has a charitable component with a portion of the cost being donated to the charity partner of the subscriber’s choice. At Grape Intentions, the fun is also in the giving; making a meaningful impact on our communities.
