          About Our Shop

          W

          e believe wine, like food, is much more than just sustenance. It transmits place, time, culture, politics and much more. But above all, we believe wine is really, really fun! We created a shop that is accessible, whether you’re seeking everyday guzzlers, rare vintages or everything in between. A true neighborhood shop, we have a small but mighty team of professionals that are not only passionate about wine, but also dedicated to helping you learn about what you are drinking.

          Our goal is for you to leave our shop with not only a bottle you love,
          but a wine’s story you can share with others while you drink.

          Justin Coleman

          Owner


          Justin Coleman wants to talk to you about wine.

          Years of selecting wines for some of NYC’s favorite spots (Balthazar, Commerce, Morandi, The Mark) have helped Justin cultivate strong relationships with both European and American winemakers, importers, and distributors. From lugging bottles, to creating beverage programs, to managing operations, Justin has worked with some of the most exalted names in the business.

          Seeking a slower pace of life for his young family (wife, Sarah and daughter, Fia), Justin headed south to Charleston in 2013, landing at The Ordinary as GM. At The Ordinary, Justin fostered an appreciation for, and understanding of the community in Charleston.

          Kaitlyn Ross

          Sales & Marketing Coordinator


          After graduating from the College of Charleston, Kaitlyn headed straight to Paris to study wine at Le Cordon Bleu for a year. She had the opportunity to visit countless vineyards around France, including ones in Champagne, Bordeaux (where she assisted in harvesting and vinifying a château’s 2017 vintage), Rhone, and Cognac. As a lover of food and wine in Charleston with a desire to work with unique, small-production wines, we welcomed her to the team so that she may passionately share her love of wine with others.
