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-a-potty?  Haven't heard that one, but there is plenty of swill made from the willing but often lacking Zinfandel grape.  Of course, most of the difficulty is referenced back to human error and human greed... over-cropping, too much sun (raisons are great as raisins - not wine grapes - unless you love Reciotto, which is an acquired taste, li...

  • This past spring I took my very first wine trip to Germany. Before I took off, I did a bit of homework: There are thirteen regions (Anbaugebiete) for quality wine production in Germany: Ahr, Baden, Franconia, Hessische Bergstrasse, Mittelrhein, Mosel, Nahe, Palatinate, Rheingau, Rheinhessen, Saale-Unstrut, Saxony, and Württemberg. Most of these ... Read More

  • Running late on reviews and postings.  A friend came over, my favorite drinking buddy and football fan, to watch the Badgers play.  Their play sorta matched the wines we drank.We started out with the 2015 Clifford Bay SB.  Light, easy to drink but not much on the body.  Sorta like the Badgers in the 1st quarter - down 10-0.Next was the Chaeles a...

  • Zinfandel for some reason reminds me of porta-potty deodorizer. I think if I never smelled a porta-potty I would like it though! I can always taste Zinfandel in blended Italian table wines and it turns me off, although there are a few brands I like that do have a little Zinf but mainly Merlot.It has a rose or flower scent and taste to it that ju...

  • Today we’re profiling a wine grape of true substance. It’s an undisputed champion of depth in terms of both color and fruit. This grape gives new meaning to the word “inky” while retaining a grace and acidity that softens the powerful fruit on your palate. The grape is Alicante Bouschet.Alicante Bouschet was created by Henri Bouschet in mid-1850... Read More

  • Apples, gourds, and snifters of port are right around the corner. Let’s cherish the last bits of summer before they’re all gone. Here are four choice picks, all under fifteen dollars, from some of the web’s top palates. Each one pairs well with sand and suntans.

  • What comes to mind when I say Cava? Perhaps your initial thoughts are inexpensive and great for mimosas or other sparkling cocktails. Cava has suffered a bit of an identity crisis. Though sales are strong, consumers are often buying it as a base for a sparkling mixer, selecting the first Cava on the shelf or the one with the prettiest bottle. Ho... Read More

  • It’s no secret that we love German wines, but there’s more to them than meets the eye. Germany is well known for superior winemaking, perfectly evolved grape varieties, and of course terroir. Tragically, so many wine drinkers get stuck on stereotypes and miss out on lots of delicious details. In this spirit, here are five German wine “secrets” y... Read More
