While it might not offer quaint, local charm, Total Wine and More remains a favorite for low prices, wide variety and lots of shelves. There’s also the convenience of online shopping — great for large orders. The company’s site serves as helpful guide with critics’ reviews and ways to save money, such as a listing of quality wines for less than $10 a bottle. At Once Upon a Vine, oenophiles can pick from 500 Virginia wines. “I’ve always supported the Virginia wine industry,” owner Bob Kocher says. “I’ve been trying them since [Virginia wineries] first opened up in the 1970s.” Corks & Kegs puts an emphasis on service, so don’t be surprised if after a few trips the friendly store associates remember your name as well as your favorite red.
