My new WINE shop: Total Wine and More!

Posted by on October 16, 2012

By now you know I love wine.  Any chance I get to try a new wine out I will.  Any chance I get to peek through the wine aisle in the grocery store I am there.

Lately, I’ve been hearing a lot of ads about Total Wine and More on the Radio Station, and I was pretty curious, but when they invited me out to their Laguna Hills store, I couldn’t pass up the chance.  And boy oh boy, it was the BEST decision I could have made.

Total Wine and More is a huge marketplace filled with every wine you could possible imagine.  They also have beer and spirits and hard liquor in their store too.  There are a ton of unique wines, California Wines, and imported beers and wines too.

Total Wine and More makes it easy when navigating the store by having their own beer aisle, but in the wine section, seperating it by grape varietals (chardonnay’s, Pinot grigio’s, merlots, etc.)  They also section it into countries too.  So if a wine is coming out of Italy, it will be in the Italy section of the store. They also have their very own wine cellar in which wines of 100 dollars or more per bottle are kept.  And have no worries, they also have wine bottles as low as 1.87 per bottle so there’s something for everyone’s budget.

But one thing Total Wine and More has to offer is their education.  They offer educational classes where you can sit down and learn about the wines, and they also have wine tastings for you to try out for just .10 cents a tasting.  It’s CA law to charge for wine tastings so that’s why they’re only 10 cents.  The best part is that Total Wine and More than donates that money to other great causes.

That evening they also provided us with a fun wine tasting.  We got to try out a variety of wines from whites to reds including a sweet sparking red called ReDream that I fell in love with (comes out of Italy!)

With our tasting they also provided us with a plate of cheese and crackers to complement our wine.

Total Wine and More will also help host your own private wine tasting event, and they also have tastings every Friday and Saturday within their stores.

So I’ve definitely found my new wine marketplace, how about you?

My new friend “Jack Daniels.”

    Jaime I think you have a greater appreciation for wine than I do and I have a wine cellar. Are you familiar with Bev More? Bev More is where I stock up on my selections. I like the wine tasting idea although. Also great thanks for sharing the info about hosting a wine tasting event. That would be nice over the holidays. Your site is so freaking informative. I am so glad you are enjoying your time here in Ca.

    How awesome to be invited to go on a wine tasting and tour of a wine store. That is so great, and I’m glad you had a fantastic time. But seriously, if wine is involved, how can someone NOT have a fantastic time!?

    I have been to Total Wine’s in Atlanta and really they have a huge selection! I am so glad you are having fun with your new love of wine. I have always loved wine- from a young age, because my dad is from a wine village in Germany and his best friend is a vintner.
