Grape Collective

Grape Collective Points of view. Not points.
(35)

Points of View. Not Points. Grape Collective launched in 2013 to offer compelling stories about wines and the people who make them. Our columnists include experienced wine journalists like Dorothy Gaiter, David White, and Monty Waldin. But Grape Collective isn’t just another wine magazine stuffed with plaudits and point scores. We take a different tack. Our writers choose the wineries, winemakers, regions, and wines they're driven to write about, telling us why each wine matters. And then we source those wines to make them easier to buy and try. It’s a new model, but one that gives writers latitude and readers options. We hope you like it.

Marco Caprai, who has done more than anyone to raise the once little-known Italian grape variety Sagrantino to prominence as a highly regarded collectible wine, brought a vertical of his stunning Spinning Beauty Montefalco Sagrantino DOCG wines to New York City this week. Grape Collective Senior Editors Dottie Gaiter and John Brecher (who took this picture) were his guests and among the first people in America to taste the not-yet-released 2010 from that indigenous grape of Umbria. Marco’s father, Arnaldo Caprai, a textile magnate for whom the winery is named, purchased the family vineyard in 1971. But it was Marco who dreamed that the almost forgotten Sagrantino could become iconic. Gaiter and Brecher tasted the wonderful, hard-as-nails 2010, the sturdy 2009 current release, and the more fetching 2008. It’s clear why Sagrantino has captured interest outside Europe in Australia, Africa, and in the U.S., especially in Texas. @colangelopr @arnaldocaprai

Hallo
Terrific company. Everyone should get to know it and use it where possible.
I am so happy and lucky that I stumbled across Grape Collective today. Here's my feature, I added Grape Collective to the section on biodynamic wine.
Grape Collective is a think-tank for oenophiles and a great place to buy organic and biodynamic wines. https://offmetro.com/ny/59292/10-easy-steps-towards-a-more-sustainable-2018/
What are the box wines you like?
