The Wine Shop Owners

The opportunity to purchase the Wine Shop and the Marina ABC store presented itself and we jumped at the chance to make our way back to Charleston and our family. 

We have been away from Charleston for 7 years and are excited to be back and build on the 27 year legacy of the Wine Shop as one of the BEST selections of wine in the Low Country. 

We welcome you to stop by the store and see the changes.   We have installed a custom Wine Bar and have resumed weekly wine tastings (Every Wednesday - 5-7 pm).

We are looking forward to starting a new monthly wine club called "Pour Choices". Please visit the website or stop by the store to sign up for our monthly curated selections.

Please stop by and let us know how we can best serve you.

Wine Shop of Charleston joins forces with Justin Razza

Wine Shop joins forces with Justin Razza as Director of Operations

The Wine Shop Team is excited to introduce our new Director of Operations - Justin Razza.

Having been brought up in an Italian household, wine and food have always played a significant part of Justin’s life. Believing that dinner is an event and not something that should be rushed or overlooked, he feels that the sense of coming together and breaking bread with one another is the most important part of the day. And when food is in play, wine must also be present; a meal without wine is tragic, after all!

With over twenty years of hospitality, food and beverage experience, the last decade of which was right here in the Charleston fine dining scene, Justin has a passion for food and wine pairings that stemmed from his upbringing. His long tenure behind a bar has also given him an extensive knowledge of spirits, which he incorporated into (thus far) two Prohibition-era novels which focus on the classic cocktails that sprung from those speakeasy days. In addition to his proficiency in uniting a great wine to accompany your meal in a perfect union, the storyteller in him enjoys in sharing with his guests the tales behind the wine bottles and the anecdotes that brought them to life.
