I’ve loved Jeffrey Hayden’s food ever since he was running the kitchen at Boot & Shoe Service five years ago. He left to open Del Popolo, putting out some of…

ORDINAIRE. 

“Not only the five senses, but also the so-called spiritual senses, the practical senses (will, love, etc.), in a word, the human sense, the humanity of the senses – all these come into being only through the existence of their objects, through humanized nature. The cultivation of the five senses is the work of all previous history.” – Karl Marx

Ordinaire is a wine shop and wine bar. We serve natural wines, which means, for us, wines that are made with grapes that are farmed organically, and then fermented naturally in the cellar with no additions except small amounts of sulfites. We believe that natural wines hold the power to affirm a profound sense of our shared humanity, our connectedness to nature, and our deepest desires for a better world.

The shop was founded by Bradford Taylor in 2012. He currently lives with his family in Chicago, where he is in the process of opening a second wine shop, Diversey Wine. He was helped by Quinn Kimsey-White, who is opening Psychic Wines in Los Angeles.

Ordinaire is now managed by Quentin Jeanroy, who directs the buying and event schedule. Diego Perez assists with buying and manages the bar. Alex Leopold procures all of our charcuterie, cheese and tinned fish. Kara Fowler helps Bradford with wine club and social media stuff. Everyone works at the bar.

We sell retail bottles to-go and offer wines by the glass. On Saturdays, from 1-4pm, we host $10 tastings featuring a particular winemaker; the fee is waived with a $100 purchase. We occasionally host pop-up dinners and weeknight tastings. The best way to stay informed is to sign up for the newsletter, or follow @ordinairewine on Instagram. 

The Ordinary is Possible. 

Keep it Fresh,

Bradford, Quentin, Diego, Alex & Kara

WINE CLUB


The wine club is a great way to explore natural wines. Each month we choose two wines for each club–always a red, and a second bottle of either red, white or sparkling.

Club Ordinaire ($39/month) includes great values meant for everyday enjoyment.
Club Extraordinaire ($69/month) includes wines that are slightly more eclectic and special.
Club Grand Ordinaire ($108/month)  includes all four wines from both clubs.

Wines may be picked up at the shop on the first Saturday of each month.
Along with the wines, you will receive a packet which describes the wines in detail, along with our personal tasting notes and pairing suggestions.

You also receive one free tasting (plus a second one for a friend) of all four wines on pick-up day and 10% off all of your retail purchases, all the time. So if you are already a regular customer, this is a great way to save. Feel free to use our online sign-up form, or sign up in the shop.
