Buying Wine in Ocean City, MD


We usually bring our own supplies to the beach.  There are beer and coolers to enjoy on the beach, bubbly to start off the evening, and a mixture of daily drinkers that taste just fine out of teeny tiny wine glasses.  But what do you do if you need more bottles of wine?  There is certainly an ample selection of stores selling cases of beer and bottles of liquor.  You could head up to 94th Street to shop and dine at Liquid Assets.  This is probably the largest wine selection in Ocean City.  If you are heading into Ocean City you can both gas up and buy wine at The Wine Rack/Exxon located on Route 50.

When Jenn returned from buying a soda she told me that I might want to take a look as they sold a lot of wine.  Sure enough the inside is like no other gas station I have been to, the vast majority of the space is dedicated to wine.  You may find wine by the gallon, box, or magnum.  Or you may step it up a bit and buy good, contemporary selections.  I saw 2009 Aubichon Pinot Noir, 2004 Joh. Jos. Prum Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spatlese, 1999 Chateau Simmard St. Emillion, 2010 Weingut Leth Gruenr Vetliner, amongst others.  I walked away with the L.A. Cetto, Petite Sirah, from Mexcio and the 2005 Ridge, Syrah, Lytton West.

Almost All Wine!

Anthony’s Beer & Wine is a store and deli on 33rd Street that is not to be missed.  They have been around for over 35 years featuring a diverse selection of beer and wine along with a gigantic list of sandwiches.  I recommend that you place an order for some sandwiches then shop for liquid refreshments while you wait.  If you want to splurge there are bottles of Ridge Monte Bellow back to 1994, bottles of both Dunn Napa Valley and Howell Mountain back to 1998, and 1999 Mayacamas.  There are even cases of Boone’s Snow Creek Berry for $4.99.  If those extremes are not suitable then there are plenty of other bottles to be purchased.  The beer selection is good as well including the recently available New Belgium Brewing, Fat Tire Amber Ale and four different selections from the Maui Brewing Company.  If you are not in Ocean City then I recommend you visit the Anthony’s website to check out the old photographs on the About page.
