First things first, the name...why can't we throw in something like Grape, Grain, and Gourmet. Fine Wine and Ales, or Fruit and Funk of Belgian Style Brews. I understand this is a wine store, but the beer selection not only rivaled the wine selection but pretty much stole the show. Check out the website, Kevin the store owner and operator has done a great job of selecting the best of the best. There's a Total Wine and More down a couple exits from Grape and Gourmet. Don't make the same mistake and go to both, and the Farm Fresh that's listed in the database as an A minus doesn't even stock a selection like they used to so somebody better keep some tabs on these stores living in the Virginia Beach area. Wide selection of brews while I was visiting a rep from B United and a family member of the Schneider (Aventinus) Braurei was in house before heading off to a local beer bar for a beer dinner. I left the store with Smuttynose Imperial Porter (the best since Perkuno's), both versions of Hopfen Weisse, Sierra Nevada Southern Hemisphere Fresh Hop, and many more fine brews. Kevin and staff were great for both beer knowledge and conversation, enjoyed my short trip to the store and I can't recommend it enough. World class beer selection that I'm glad I made the gamble to visit.

Tried this place while on vacation. The people working there were extremely nice and went out of their way to get a 12 pack of the Sierra Nevada Beer Camp for me. (The tough beer to get of the moment)
They had a really nice selection of beer that you were allowed to buy in singles. The only very slight knock that I had was that the cold selection was extremely minimal but they more than made up for it in room temp selection.
I would highly recommend this place to any BAs in the area.
