Welcome to Great Grapes!! At Great Grapes we don't sell wine...we sell service. You can buy wine in many places and the prices are generally the same. This leaves our ability to service as the true point of difference. The difference…we choose the best unique small production wines for the money, and have unpretentious sales people who seek to understand what each customer likes and dislikes. If you prefer to browse unassisted, our store has educational-based merchandizing to make self-service easy. – Description from markomkc

  • Emark - you're right to a large extent, and there's a LOT of swill in Europe. But the advantage they have is that in many cases, they've been farming the same land and making wine for generations. Then you get an energetic importer who finds a co-op and helps them tweak their wine. Suddenly it's pretty good and their price point isn't covering l... Read More

  • Sometimes we get used to paying upwards of $100 for a nice bottle of wine from the wine shop.  Those are the 'good days' that we want to remember, but soon you notice your bank account is dropping faster than Trumps approval rating, so you start looking for more value-oriented wines that are tasty in their own right.When you find a nice wine tha...

  • I panicked!No, we just felt like some red. I misjudged the style a bit. Okay, so we had something pretty interesting last night.  I think there's a story behind it.  It was a Marsanne/Roussane/Viognier blend from Alder Springs.  Not just the very large vineyard owned by the guy who invented the California Cooler. He grows all kinds of grapes up ... Read More

  • Jura's great. First encountered the wines when I made a trip there in the effort to chase down some vin jaune (grapes dried on straw before vinification) I'd heard about but not yet seen, back in the early '80s. During that trip I also  got to meet their distinctive-but-excellent chardonnays, in depth, and some pure PNs. On later trips, and thro... Read More

  • Just a few short weeks before Bordeaux En Primeur 2016, I found myself back in Bordeaux to re-taste the 2015 vintage. Bordeaux’s 2015 vintage is proving to be quite fascinating. Some are shouting from the rafters that it is the best vintage since 2010, and even possibly 2005, while whispers of trepidation persist in dark corners. Furthermore, th... Read More

  • Sandra and I were invited to attend a special wine tasting event in Washington DC tonight - called, "GEMS on the Road".  These were wine selections from twelve California wineries, with an emphasis on Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon varietals.  It wasn't cheap mind you as you could select as much as you wished to consume.  There were horderves...

  • "the southernmost extremes of Ontario are actually further south than Bordeaux"I love shit like this.  As if the only thing that mattered was latitude.  (Or soil, or mean daily temperature, or... take your pick.) Has this writer ever been to either place?  I haven't been to Bordeaux, but I know that area in Ontario and Western NY pretty well.  L... Read More

  • Here's the story by Vine Pair, which has made for some decent reads from my Facebook feed of late. Lots of interesting regions named here from China to Brazil to Texas. The other domestic region being North Virginia. Nearby, there's Baja and Canada.Tasmania and Croatia we've heard about for a while longer, and seem to have a bit more Cree than t... Read More

  • You can buy 2015 California Cabernet if you look around, I'm sure.  Heck, maybe even 2016.  But the Italians make you wait a little longer--five years for Brunello, and four, more or less, for Barolo.  So that means the 2013 Barolos are starting to hit the market, and it's a highly anticipated vintage.  2014 suffered from hail, so it's going to ...
