Here's my hot take on wine in supermarkets -- what experience have you had?

I've bought wine at Wegmans in NY, they actually have a fairly solid selection although they do tend to stock wines with larger production. Prices, especially sales, are pretty decent. It is a nice convenience, and covers the basics. Supposedly wine purchasers at grocery stores spend more on their non-wine purchases.

It may take some time, but I am also looking forward to discovering some privately owned shops around here one day...

It's hard to imagine anything significant changing until the state gets out of the business and retailers can negotiate with wholesalers directly. That will favor larger, smarter buyers. Like admin, I have a Virginia connection and shopping at a Costco in Richmond isn't like shopping at a Giant Eagle or Wegman's here. Almost always a surprise or three. To Songoose's and Red's point, I have experienced wine shopping heaven at the Century Liquor & Wines next to the Wegman's flagship store in Pittsford NY (it's owned by a Wegman). It has amazing selection, lots of availability of wines aged immaculately and even a high-rollers section. Shouldn't take more than 50 years for that to develop here...
