This morning we’re kicking off a series of articles to highlight the local businesses that advertise with ARLnow.com.
The coronavirus outbreak will bring significant hardship to many local businesses in Arlington, so we wanted to take an opportunity to recognize the advertisers who support us, in hopes that our readers support them.
It is considered by some to be the best wine shop in Virginia. It is certainly one of those community-serving businesses that make Arlington a better place.
Social distancing is important to help slow the spread of disease, and we hope that those who want to stock up on wine and beer ahead of an extended stay at home might a) do so now, rather than later, and b) choose to do so at Arrowine rather than a more crowded, chain grocery store.
Arrowine said in a social media post over the weekend that it is “exploring how to best implement [delivery] service.” In the meantime, if you’d like to place a wine order or pickup, or to buy a gift card, you can do so online. Arrowine is open from 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday-Saturday and 11 a.m.-5 p.m. on Sunday.
Thank you, Arrowine, for your support of our news coverage.
"We're doing our best" to keep staff healthy while staying in business, says owner Doug Rosen. Wine, bottle & can beer, cheese, charcuterie, and other food all available. Asking customers for flexibility in placing orders, given that the inventory system is not computerized yet.

All members of our deli staff are ServSafe certified and we use a commercial sanitizing dishwasher.⠀ Employees who feel in any way sick are required to stay home. We are taking care to support all employees’ wellbeing and stability.⠀ ⠀ We work closely with the health department and local officials in Arlington and follow all best practices through this rapidly evolving situation⠀ ⠀ While we continue to take every precaution, as of right now, our doors remain open and operations are running as normal.

We’re currently live via our online shop and welcome taking orders over the phone. We currently do not offer deliveries, but are exploring how to best implement the service and will notify you when operations are running. ⠀ ⠀ Our store is prepared to respond rapidly to any emerging situation with modified operations, either at our own discretion or as directed by authorities.
