Voted "Best Wine Shop" by the readers of C-VILLE Weekly for the last 12 years!

More About Our Company

Downtown Sign

Market Street Wineshop has been selling a large and carefully chosen selection of wines and beers in Downtown Charlottesville since 1986 and at our Uptown location since 1996.  For the last 12 years we’ve been voted “Best Wine Shop” by the readers of C-VILLE Weekly.

Our staff is passionate about wine and beer and we love hunting down inexpensive deals for dinner as well as helping you select something extraordinary for a special occasion.

In addition to wine and beer we have a small but quality selection of specialty foods, coffees, teas, gifts and hand woven baskets.

If you want to try before you buy, we have our Wines of the Week open to taste every day. We also have free tastings at both stores; beers Wednesday evening and wine Friday evening at our Downtown store, and wine Saturday afternoon at our Uptown store.


We offer

  • Over 1200 wines and 400 beers in stock, with tens of thousands more available on a week’s notice.
  • Free gift wrapping for bottles in our signature bright red bag.
  • Help selecting gifts and putting together gift baskets.
  • Delivery to anyone in our local area.
  • Shipping to 29 states and the District of Columbia. We also sell wine shipping boxes.
  • Gift Certificates in any amount. Call with your credit card and recipient information. (They never expire and no future fees.)
