Crystal City Wine Shop Wine Club
At the Crystal City Wine Shop, they have the good fortune to taste hundreds of amazing wines every year and if they stocked every one that they loved on our shelves, they would groan under the weight! So, the Wine Club is a way for them to share some of the more value-driven wines that they come across in their tasting adventures. Every month, the staff at the Shop hand selects a pair of wines for members of the Wine Club. Additionally, we offer Wine Club members discounts and opportunities to purchase wine they love at pricing that they cannot find anywhere else!
