Second Place: Once Upon a Vine
Third Place: Kroger
We're on our second booze entry, so forgive us. If you thought you couldn't find your way out of Total Wine & More's beer aisles — a typical store has a selection of 2,500 beers — then forget about the wine. There are in the neighborhood of 8,000 varieties of wine, from every wine-producing region in the world, according to the company's website. So we're stuck here, in the big wine box, and it's all beginning to make sense. Category killers have a purpose. And it's to sell wine.
