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

Chardonnay anyone? Still more are actually difficult to get to a bottle in once piece without the high involvement of the dedicated growers to make quality w... Read More

  • Tonight we met with our Fidelity financial advisor to discuss our 'green line'.  We are in good shape and I'll no longer be on a bread & water diet just to make it to my senior years.   We celebrated by walking across the street and having a glass of wine at the Whole Foods wine bar.  I selected the Rose from Provence, France, while Sandra chose...

  • The Rhône holds a large piece of my heart for one big, unctuous reason: the Viognier grape. She’s the first white grape I ever loved. Viognier braved near-extinction and now enjoys an effusive existence in so many wine glasses worldwide. From the classic Condrieu varietal bottlings to red blend cameo appearances, Viognier’s oily bits of succulen... Read More

  • As the former National Wine Director for Smith & Wollensky Restaurant Group, I love the line, “A slab and a Cab, please.” As a native Texan, I never would have thought Texan Cabernet would join cattle as one of the state’s most prosperous crops. But it has, and I am thrilled to see Texan wine thrive. Surprised to hear that the Lone Star State ma... Read More

  • "When the moon hits your eye/like a big pizza pie/that's amore."As we ate our breakfast on Sunday morning at the Imperial Hotel in Amador City, the soundtrack subtly changed.  Last night at dinner and halfway through breakfast, the soundtrack was from the same era, but Sam Cooke sent us, and Ray Charles warned us about women.  This morning, with...

  • PS, not sure what the European WSET classes are like but my level 3 class has spanned 10 weeks, can't see that being crunched into a month, and the level 2 class is good but not high level enough to warrant the overseas costs. IMHO, WSET is definitely a great learning experience. Granted it is not as good as a hands on experience like DM is sugg... Read More

  • Recent research shows that a glass of red wine a day is like twenty minutes of vigorous exercise. So before summer rosés officially take hold, get in on the last gasps of Cabernet. I tasted through forty different Cabernets, all under $16. There are some superb examples here that you’re going to want to try. Cabernet, because of the value inhere... Read More

  • Whispers in the northwest United States are that Syrah is going the way of the 80’s and making a marvelous comeback – minus the neon and hairspray. This past week Great Northwest Wine (GNW) discussed the possible resurgence of the wine which once was the darling of Washington, Oregon and Idaho.  “It hasn't been that many years since Syrah was th...
