“Growler” Champagne from Graft Wine Shop

Graft is a wine shop and wine bar in uptown Charleston. Founded by two long-time friends, it is a celebration of good wine, community, great times, and the best music. Our favorite? A bottle of “growler” champagne. Growler champagnes are small production, artisanal sparkling wines produced by the same farmers who grow the grapes, unlike the more familiar, mass-produced labels. Graft Wine Shop has an amazing selection!
