Welcome to Once Upon a Vine – Wines and Beers of the World, and much more………..

Once Upon a Vine is a privately held seller of wines and beers of the world. The wine section carries wines from around the world and offers an excellent selection over an affordable price range. What differentiates this store is the display of wines based on price ranges rather than just region as a main criteria. This allows customers to find wines in a price range and palate suitable for the occasions.

The beer section boasts premium beers from 6 continents. Yes, 6 continents. They are North and South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australia.

We were rated 44th in the world from Rate Beer.com in 2009 and have moved to 23th in the world in 2015. As far as beeradvocate.com we were given a 99 rating score for our beer selection. We have won first place and second place “Best Wine and Beer Store” by Style Magazine, Virginia Living, Richmond.com and Richmond Times Dispatch, over the last 7 or more years in a row.

We also carry assorted Cheeses and Fine chocolates and retro Candies for all ages, and many made in Virginia products (Salsas, Chips, and much more)
