From the vast array of affordable natural wines and crystal necklaces to the [festively dressed alien out front], Wine & Rock Shop in Yucca Valley is a must-visit during any trip to JT. The quirky shop is a great place to do some gift hunting for that one friend who’s always hard to shop for, as well as replenishing the weekend wine stock without having to venture to Vons. And if you think you’re leaving without an extensive photoshoot with the alien out front, you’re sadly mistaken.
