Ordinaire is a wine shop in Oakland on Grand Ave. near Lake Merritt with an impressive selection of natural wines. Yes, you can pop in and peruse the long shelf stocked with local and European reds, whites, ciders, and more (you can also order online). But you should plan to post up for a while, because this place doubles as a wine bar with reasonably priced wines-by-the-glass, and a selection of snacks like cheese, charcuterie, and fancy almonds. Since Ordinaire has been around since 2013, expect a well-oiled operation run by knowledgeable wine people. There's limited seating inside, so the probability is high that you might be huddled around a wine barrel outside. This wine bar is as chill as they come.
