First cruise out of San Pedro is coming up and I know nothing about the city. Staying at the Crown Plaza the night before we leave and I have been told that there are some good restaurants within a short distance but what I really need to know is there someplace handy I can buy some decent wine. Thanks in advance for any help.
Also, most grocery stores in California carry beer, wine and liquor. Only limitation is they can sell between 6am and 2am (if they are open at that hour)

The majority of places on this list are restaurants (which cannot sell you wine) and only two wine stores are within comfortable walking distance from the CP. Marabella does sell wine but they are mostly a winemaking business and only open on Friday and Saturday.
