DCanter Wine Boutique Soft Opens Today on Barracks Row

545 8th Street, SE

Hard to believe this space was a former costume shop. DCanter’s website says:

Hi there! We are Michael and Michelle Warner, owners of DCanter.

DCanter isn’t your typical wine or beer shop. We offer products and services that encourage our customers to experience and discover what’s unique about different wine and beer styles in a welcoming and unintimidating environment. Our hand-selected offerings of artisan wines and craft beers from around the world caters to the palate of connoisseurs, as well as to those interested in learning more or simply trying new styles.

We host frequent tastings and educational opportunities for those who are curious and looking for fun ways to learn more about the wine or beer world. DCanter has a dedicated tasting room and educational space where guests can enjoy events around a 16-foot communal table made from reclaimed wood, centered by a breathtaking glass-blown purple chandelier. We are also excited to bring the passion of winemakers and brewers directly into the store through in-person or virtual visits. To further our customers’ wine and craft beer experience, we offer books covering various related topics and accessories like glassware, decanters (of course!), corkscrews and beer openers.

Store Hours
