Best Wine by the Glass
2761 Washington Blvd., Arlington; (703) 778-5051
Let’s break this down, baseball-style, to pure stats: Tallula has more than 50 wines by the glass and offers each one in three sizes: 3-oz half-glass, 6-oz glass, and 10-oz beaker. Oh, you can buy a bottle, too, but that’s a whole ’nother subject. Just as important, the prices are fair, ranging from $3.50 for a half-glass of pinot grigio to $40 for a beaker of Napa cab, and the selection is well-constructed. Every major wine-producing country in the world is represented, and even the locals claim a spot or two with, say, a glass of viognier from Horton Vineyards. Think about it: You can order a glass of wine for almost two straight months at Tallula and never drink the same one twice.
