    Very knowledgeable staff. Also dog friendly

    Small but well curated wine shop, with really friendly staff. There's a wall of exceptional picks for $15 and under, and regular tastings on the weekend. If you're local and drink wine regularly, they deliver and have a personal wine matching service called a wine concierge.

    The worst. Came here to get several white wine selections for a party. The staffed acted as if I were a second class citizen. Didn't offer to help, and bagged all 8 bottles with an attitude. Never again.

    I have been a patron of DCanter since the day they opened, and I have fallen in love with this store and its staff. Not only do I regularly purchase wine in the store, but I have also been a member of it's Wine Concierge program since it's inception several years ago and have also attended wine tastings and classes in the store. The husband and wife owners, Michael and Michelle, are extremely knowledge about wine and are so friendly and welcoming. They are both regularly in the store and will often remember customers names and wine preferences - great personal touches! My wine concierge, Tess, is fantastic. She is very responsive via email and works with me each month to cater wines to my taste, budget, and changing preferences. Don't waste your time or money with those large, corporate-backed wine delivery programs. Each of those programs is a rip-off and pales in comparison to DCanter's Wine Concierge program. They offer free home delivery for six bottles or more, and they ACTUALLY cater to your tastes and preferences. You have a live person working with you each month to refine your wine profile. Each month is unique and has opened my eyes to so many new wines that I love! I also highly recommend the in-store classes. I have attended classes taught by co-owner Michael who is extremely knowledgeable about wine and very patient with simple and amateur questions that everyone is bound to ask. He makes wine approachable and easy to learn, and every class is just fun! The tastings are similarly informative and fun, but they are also free! Stop by every Saturday and Sunday afternoon for a treat - you won't regret it!

    Just wanted to give them 5 stars because I had a great experience. I received very good help even while she was preparing for an event that same evening. This was nearly a year ago, but it was well worth reviewing.
