This place is about 4 miles from Peoria Sports Complex, where we are for Padres Spring Training.

First off, it's HUGE. Next, they have HUGE selections of beer, wine, cigars and spirits. I bought a ton of stuff I don't normally see in San Diego, Great Divide in particular.

And...it's cheap. They have nice French wines that are SO much cheaper than on the web. We bought a bunch of beer and wine and still got out of there under 100 bucks. We are going back again before we go home.

Quality was dinged because most of the craft and import is stored at room temp. If it was cellared, this store would be perfect.

I wish this place existed in San Diego!

Visited here twice when I was in AZ, 7/30/10 and 8/1/10. Walking in it doesn't look too much different than my local one in Tustin, beer is to the back and right. I was overjoyed to see a ton of different singles, a large portion of stuff I couldn't get in CA. They had the standard CA stuff - Sierra Nevada, Anchor, Firestone, Stone, some Alesmith, Port and Lost Abbey. But I was most excited seeing stuff like Left Hand, Great Divide (no OA Yeti unfortunately), Ska, Odell, Bell's, and a lot more Dogfish Head. A lot more Leinekugel's and Dundee than I'm used to seeing. There were also some imports I can't get in CA like Urbock 23 and Cantillon Kriek. Also picked up a Sonoran 200 which I thought would be a longshot at best. The Abyss made an appearance.

Service was great at the register considering I bought almost 40 bottles, very cheap in the end coming to around $110. I bought a lot, but I'm only scratching the surface of what this store has to offer. A great liquor store in the North Valley, a must visit if you're in the area.

Typical beer store here. I have never come across anything truly unique or special to Total Wine. They have the selection that I wold want from a larger liquor store. They have the typical wretched service from an average liquor store. They have the same old prices that any other place is offering. So, all in all, just another place to buy beer and booze. One posting said, "I have never been approached in the store by an employee." This is very true. The service is really non-existent here. Just to qualify things, I buy beer here at least once every two weeks for the last year. Enough said.
