Oakton Wine Shop is the best! So helpful, donates to lots of local charities and is truly a part of the community. Live them!

Oakton Wine Shop is great. Wines you don't fine elsewhere, helpful staff -- and wines in all price ranges -- i.e. they don't look down on you if you are looking for a $10 bottle of wine.

Oakton Wine shop. Some of the best wine I have EVER enjoyed. And I have enjoyed wines from around the globe. Their beer selection makes it a favorite for me and hubbie.

Definitely Oakton Wine Shop! They have the best tastings, best celebrity guests from around the world, and it's always an education.

Unwined in Belle Haven. Great wine and rare beer available at good prices.
S. A. Misener June 26, 2012 at 04:18 PM
Unwined has the BEST people and an awesome, hand-picked selection that they are very knowledgeable about. I love their craft beer selection to pieces, and their stock rotates often, so there's always something new.

Believe it not, Wegmans down in Lorton has a wide selection, good prices and very helpful staff.
Alison July 06, 2012 at 02:38 PM
Vienna Vintners! Great tastings on Saturdays which includes food to snack on.
Beck Lomax July 08, 2012 at 10:43 PM
I'm pretty sure that Total Wine and More likely beats out the competition. The selection is massive as compared to boutique stores and the sales volume naturally leads to lower prices. The lacking factor is ambiance, but I've got a nice dining room for that.

OAKTON WINE SHOP - hands down winner! Knowledge, variety, price and personal attention. A fun place for tasting and convenient to get to!

Lake Anne Florist - great local Virginian wines! Plus there's chocolate & flowers...

Oakton Wine Shop is the best. Knowledgeable staff, great tastings every weekend and they order anything you want. They are the best for sure! NancyH

I no longer drink alcohol but when I did, I would go to Total Wine & More, however it use to be called Total Beverage. I would go there because of the large selection of British drinks, one in particular called a Snowball and another called Shandy.
