If you’re visiting Stone (Escondido location) or Lost Abbey and you’re looking to grab some great bottles, then Holiday Wine Cellar should be your bottle shop of choice. They’ve been around for over 50 years and have the best service and bottle selection in the area. They have a great selection of beers from the San Diego and the rest of the country along with some international rarities. Of the several times I’ve been there, I’ve picked up bottles from Council, Russian River, Toolbox, Beachwood Blendery, Westvleteren, Cantillon – I think you get the point. They also have an extensive selection of wine, spirits and cigars.
Another great service that this store offers is that they will also ship your bottles home – whether you purchased them there or not. They’ll pack the bottles for you in a shop with bottle shippers and insure them legally since they’re an authorized shipper of alcohol. It’s a great service if you want to send your stuff home and be able to enjoy the rest of your trip without having to worry about getting your bottles home. I’ve sent up to 25 cases of beer home at one time without a bottle going missing. Needless to say, this is a great place and worth visiting if you’re in San Diego – whether it be to purchase bottles or send bottles home.
