Grape Intentions

Grape Intentions Brett has a passion for wine and giving back. Grape Intentions is a wine subscription club that you have never seen before.

At its core, Grape Intentions is a Wine Club. Brett and Alex are two guys with a passion for wine, food and giving back. Each month you will receive 3 or 6 bottles of wine, from one of three tiers - Good, Gooder, or Goodest. To get started, you will answer 8 simple questions which will establish your palate profile. As a sommelier with over 20 years of experience, Brett then hand picks the wine you will receive. Unlike our competitors we are not held to sending you private label wines, wines from contracted vineyards, or bulk ordered wines. Over time, as your palate changes, so too do the wines we send you. Our unique learning algorithm helps you rate and rank the bottles you receive. The "intentions" part is important. We believe deeply that for-profit businesses should give back to the communities or individuals it works with. We selected six non-profit partners to allow our members to aid in this effort. Our members choose which organization their subscription supports and we donate monthly to our partner non-profits. Our goal is to be able to donate thousands of dollars a month to these six organizations - making a bigger impact on the world than just providing great wine to people. Take a look at our website and learn more about Grape Intentions - www.grapeintentions.com

Y’all, I love wine. I think I’ve made that pretty clear, but I just need to get it off my chest. Reds… whites… name it and I’ll drink it. My girls come over for random wine nights and they’ve got expectations. So obviously, I need to be fully stocked at all times.

A time to say thank you. Hosted a private wine tasting with @argylewinery sparkling and disgorging session with the awesome @louiethewonderdog. 2018 was a bumpy year and a core group rallied to help @grapeintentions in many ways. How to say thanks? With delicious wine of course. Thank you for all the love and support - even to those not pictured. #indulgeindoinggood @ Brookland Press

Dining at Lehja a day after their James Beard nomination for Best Chef: Mid-Atlantic was a remarkable feast for the palate. Divine flavors and triumphant aromas served up by Sandeep Baweja - paired expertly with his wines (even some from India!) - makes this an absolute must! In the most unlikely of settings in a mall outside of Richmond, VA, this is worth visiting ASAP! You’ll be left smiling with every bite and every sip, promise!

Flying at 35,000 feet with only this to drink is not our idea of a good time. We would much rather see @aerlingus work with the remarkable wines of @adibadenhorst. His Curator white and red would do nicely!

Quite possibly the first wine charity, whose proceeds from their annual auction go to the hospital as well as the upkeep of it’s famed 500 year-old structure. Of course this had the nutty, preserved lemon, bready qualities one would expect and only continued to open up over several hours. Not an “everyday” wine for us but certainly a treat!
