Seems to be a fairly typical TW, in this case organized by style. With one exception - there were quite a range of styles thrown together in the "seasonals" section. Makes sense I guess, but requires a bit of hunting, especially since I was looking for local stuff and it’s scattered about. Prices seemed a bit high for the area. Mixed six section was about normal size for a TW. An OK stop.

Updated Rating: I’m dropping the service rating on this place. Although I like this store, I have had a number issues with Total Wine overcharging on beers in their singles section. I have started watching the cash register very closely as I check out, because I typically have something mis-priced about 1 in every 5 visits or so. The last time, I told the attendant that two items rung up at the wrong price. She insisted the prices were correct. I checked later, and they were in fact $3 overpriced at the register. I still plan on visiting this place, but I am getting very frustrated with the service.
Good selection, similar to other Total Wines that I’ve visited in the area. A large selection of singles and 6-packs and also a growler filling station with 4 beers on tap when I visited. Like other Total Wines that I’ve been to in Charlotte, you have to keep an eye out for old beer in the singles section. There appears to be quite a bit of old beer in the singles section (although it didn’t seem nearly as bad as the Huntersville Total Wine), so I usually stick to seasonal beers to guarantee fresher beer. Overall, though, another good location to pick up beer and a pretty wide selection of offerings.
Up on a knoll (not easily seen from the main road) in a strip mall complex. Plenty of dedicated parking. Lots of beer selections, but it seemed they don’t stock very often. Not as good selection or service as the other TWM I went to.
It’s is one of the nicest Totsl Wine’s I’ve seen. Unfortunately it’s on the small side so the beer selection was smaller than I typically see at these stores. On the flip side this is one of the few total wines that has a beer geek who actually helps customers select beer which is very unusual. They also don’t feature the local stuff like other locations but they have a lot of bottles and the prices are usually very reasonable.

Typical Total Wine, but with an added snob layer. Not really sure why; most likely because it is considered "Meyers Park" area. The people that work here were pretty nice, but the people shopping are snobby. If it rained in the store, there would be many drowning deaths. The selection is good, typical of any Total Wine in Charlotte. Duckworth’s is close by for some draft beer if you are interested.
This Total Wine location is similar to others I’ve visited. However, this location has a better selection of hard to find brews like Founder’s Breakfast Stout. One con would be no growler station that I’ve seen but I was so busy finding rare gems I may have overlooked. Possibly the best thing about this location is it is right beside the best bar I’ve ever been to Duckworth’s.
More upscale than most Total Wine locations, but still with the typical layout. Seems like the selection of singles is a little lighter than other locations. They do have a little cafe and some taps, though I’m not sure how many. Customer service bordered on surly.
This is a pretty typical Total Wine: a giant warehouse with lots of beer. They actually had less beer than I was expecting, they seemed to stock almost everything available rather than stocking each and every beer possible. There were some beers available that I have never before seen in the southeast: Flying Fish and some other random New England beers. Prices are good, but not particularly lower than Brawley’s which is very close by. This would be an alright stop, but it would be better to just go to Brawley’s which has a better rotation of beers and certainly superior beer knowledge.
