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

That combined with some New Zealand experience makes a leaner style wine, low... Read More

  • California’s Livermore Valley is entwined with the legacy of winemaking genius Carl H. Wente. He was among the first to harness Livermore’s unique geographical orientation and terroir for quality grape growing and winemaking. The region and its gravely soils run from east to west; an exceptional position that draws bay breezes and fog in a direc... Read More

  • Quick note, I'll be back later to talk about Matthews's panel discussion on Saturday, but RCKR makes a point that I want to address. GregT is saying, I think, that everyone is entitled to their opinion of the wine, and it's not really surprising that they will say different things.  It's silly that they say things that have no real transferable ...

  • GregT, agree with you completely.  Matthews isn't saying there's no influence of soil, climate, etc.  What I hear him saying is, Tell me what you mean by "terroir" and we'll test the effects.  Not something "ineffable" and, by definition or want of same, unmeasurable.  Eff "ineffable."  Because whatever the effect is, rigorous testing (or semi-r...

While there is much to say about the wines of Austria, this examination will focus on a handful of the lesser-known Austrian white grape varieties sure to excite white wine lovers everywhere. There’s a chance yo... Read More

  • Rckr, you'll notice that word "epiphany" in posts.  Searching that on the forum yields a lot of stories.  There's even a thread on the subject, and it contains my own epiphany wine. It's good to reignite that discussion, as we have newer contributors who have great stories along these lines, like yours.  Also, people have their way of thinking c... Read More

  • I remember mine completely, just  like it was yesterday, all except for the producer which I think was Tyrrell, but after 40+ yrs the name has faded.  What remains vivid is the experience.  The place was in Freemantle, just outside Perth, in 1976.  Hungry for a good meal, myself and 2 friends chanced upon this spot.  It was owned by a WW2 refuge...
