Looking for cheese in the Washington DC Metro area

I'm a New Yorker who shops for cheeses at Bedford Cheese and other locals favorites that I won't also plug here but you know them already. I'm heading down to to the Washington DC metro area for the holidays and I need some leads for cheeses. Starting with the one's listed below. I know there are "gourmet" chains such as Wegman's in the area but I'm not familiar with their precise cheese offerings but I've heard good reviews overall. Perhaps someone could point me in the right direction? I'll have a car. Which I realize is odd to say outside of NYC but we don't have one here and get around just fine. I know that I could ship the cheeses or travel with them but neither are actually an option this time.

(Also, good lead on nebbiolo and xinomavro wines would also be helpful)

Thank you.

Cheeses (or similar) I'm looking for:

Capra Cremosa Tartufo (Goat and truffle - Italy)
Toma Malga (Raw cow - Italy)
Canestrato, Casa Madaio (Raw sheep - Italy)
Pecorino Muffato di Anversa (Raw sheep - Italy)
