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

  • Never a day of rest for OT.  He crosses three time zones, and he's still spreading the word.Just to remind you that we are still flying the flag back here in the golden state, OT: This is an unusual wine.  No one characteristic jumps out at me.  However, the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.  The nose makes me think tart dark fruit.  W...

  • The majority of wines on the market these days are meant to be consumed within one to five years. This is a natural law. Producing wines that can sit in the cellar for decades is time-consuming and expensive. There is a time and place for wines that age and adventurous palates are required. Most all age-worthy wines will have high acid, tannin, ... Read More

  • Okay, I have no idea how to do this.  I posted what I thought was an intro a week or two ago and I cannot find either my post or any of whatever replies there might have been.  Computers and the arcane rituals one has to perform in order to make sense of any of this crap are an absolute mystery to me.  I am a MENSA member so I know perfectly wel...

Exhibits red fruits (plum) and dark cherry, wood and earth and spice. There is a light chocolate thats rides with the tannins and is balanced by the acidity. Great wine - drink or hold and decant ...

  • Every wine producing country has strengths and weaknesses, some more than others. Chile has many high points that make it a go-to country when looking for outstanding wine. The number of unique regions that feature diverse soil types and microclimates is simply astounding. Chile has three thousand miles of coastline north to south as well as mou... Read More

  • Can you tell us any more about your Burgundy white, Duncan? One of the more interesting bottles that's been posted here recently, since it breaks the usual mold. Chards from Burgundy can mature over that long a curve, or longer, if made well and stored properly. Corton-Charlemagne is known for being particularly long-lived and slower to mature. ... Read More

  • Depending on how they harvest, the low price could be understandable. The grape itself, being a cross of a cross of a cross (Müller-Thurgau is a cross between Riesling and Madeleine Royale, which is a cross between Pinot and Trollinger) is certainly one that's not in great demand, and likelihood is high the vineyards are planted on cheaper land,...
