Le Tastevin Fine Wines Has Closed on Upper King Street

Retail space for lease in the Upper King Street neighborhood of Alexandria, Virginia

Like today’s earlier posting on The Kitchen Guild, my apologies for just getting around to posting this news. A couple of readers emailed me about this closure last week.

Le Tastevin Fine Wines, which was part of the resurgence in specialty retail in the Upper King Street neighborhood of Old Town Alexandria, Virginia, has closed. I can’t find a site with any information about the closure simply to say that it seemed like it had just opened a couple of years back. The Facebook page has nothing about the closure. If you are interested in the space, call the number above.

Retail space opportunities in the King Street corridor don’t come along often but, seem to be happening more and more lately (see here, here, and here for three examples).

What do you think about this? What would you like to see replace it in the Upper King Street neighborhood?

Tastevin was sold and the new owners had trouble getting the ABC liscense so they couldnt officially open. A juice bar was approved for the space last month.


TY Salena – I will look into that. Anytime you have info like that to share, please email me here – > http://redbricktown.com/contact-me/

As sale a said, taste actually closed early 2014, with (failed) hopes to reopen. Permitting was a problem. The juice bar info slated for the space has removed their signage, assumption is that its gone too with newnleqse signs up and permits down.

I wish taste could have survived, it was a great local shop.
