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

  • This is the time of the year that you see a slew of rosé wine reviews, as the summer is known as pink wine season. This is underscored by the fact that most wineries release their rosés in the spring no doubt in an effort to latch on to the popular sentiment. For years, I refused to buy into to the “summer means rosé” mindset as I firmly believe... Read More

Earlier this month we had the opportunity to explore one of the country’s oldest and up-and-coming wine regions: Lodi, California. It still amazes me that a si... Read More
