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

  • Port wine. Is it what your granny might drink? Well one of the many charms of Port is that the last bottle I tasted was harvested, vinified and put in a barrel way before my granny (may she rest in peace) was even born. Actually, I’m not sure my great-great grandmother was born either. To find out would require referencing some very stuffy, dust... Read More

  • I don't know where people get those descriptions VV! Don't worry, you didn't purchase lemon pledge. The white is mostly Viura with a little bit of Malvasia, typical of a Rioja white. Viura tends to have a slightly bitter finish, not offensive, but distinctive, and Malvasia of course, is one of the world's most aromatic grapes, very floral and on... Read More

  • I can probably count the number of winemakers that I have met on one hand.  Invariably, though, I would describe them as approachable, open, and gracious people.  They have consistently treated me with tremendous respect and actually listen to my questions or my opinions as if they have never heard them before.  Their responses are always detail...

  • R7, trips are nice, but being able to roll out of your bed and into a vineyard a la OT is far better.  No matter where you live, though, you can make wine part of your vacation--there are many great wine areas that are also near major cities or historical sites.  No coincidence, there, since civilization started so that we could drink fermented ...
