About the Crystal City Wine Shop

Our mission is to be a neighborhood resource for all your wine, beer, cider, and gourmet food needs. We truly enjoy what we do and are happy to help!
We believe that the right wine, beer, or cider can improve any situation!

We promise to always: 1) Be approachable, friendly and easy to talk to; 2) Be wine smart, but not snooty; 3) Only sell wines and beers that we ourselves would drink; 4) Offer extraordinary value in every price range!

And, at the very least, you will never come into the shop without feeling a bit wine wiser!

With an extensive selection of wines, ciders, and beers from around the world, our selection changes daily! Want something specific? If it’s available in Virginia and we can get it, we’ll order it for you!

  • We have hundreds of wines from around the world with a focus on small producers, sustainable production, and unique expressions.

  • We feature local, regional, national, and import beer with a focus on the unique, interesting, and hard-to-find.

  • We focus on local Virginia and Maryland ciders, with a selection of our favorite Normandy, Basque, and American ciders available.

  • Kingsbury Chocolates, Volpi Salami, Snacklins, Mexican Coca-Cola, Boylan's Soda, Route 11 Chips, Chevrai Goat Cheese ... Stop by to check out our regularly rotating selection!
