Welcome to DC mysterychef! You're near our favorite deli, Rein's. Bit of a hike for us but they are worth it.
I've had TJ wines and beer, and also Aldi wines. They sell them in all OH stores but only four TJs here in MA. If you do the store locator thing on TJ's you can search for the two that sell beer and wine only and the additional two that sell beer, wine and spirits. All four are inside I-495.
Once when back in OH we bought red wine from Aldis and also from a nice winery in the area. Did a blind taste test during dinner - only I knew which was which. We all liked the Aldis better in spite of the fact that the "fine wine" was about 5 or 6 times more. We were impressed.
Remember when buying wine to cook with you always want it to be as good as one that you would drink. "I like to cook with wine. Sometimes I'll even add it to the food. "
