Wine Store in DC
Is there a particular wine store that you would recommend in DC? I'd like to give a gift certificate for someone who loves great wine. Thank you!
I'd second the recommedation for MacArthur's. They probably have the best selection for someone who is into wine. Others might also suggest Calvert-Woodley since they also have a large selection, but I prefer MacArthurs.
Another choice would be Bell's. While not as large as either of the other two I mentioned, they are very good about service and working with you. They also have access to a lot of good stuff.
But my first choice would definitely be MacArthur's.
I would also suggest Bell's if you're downtown. The staff are a bit gruff, but the selection is good and hte prices fair.

I'll second Weygandt Wines. It's probably one of the best, along with the Kermit Lynch shop in Berkley, CA, in the US.
Good suggestions here, but if it's someone who doesn't have a car, a lot of these recommendations are a bit hard. I'm a carless city-liver, and would prefer Cork or Zola market for both convenience and style. They're more of a "special bottle of wine" destination, as opposed to a full-service liquor store.
