Founding Team

Our company was founded by brothers David and Matt McCarus, the strength of this bond is the backbone of everything we do.

We are focused on sharing the love, trust, loyalty and respect held between brothers with each of our producers, as we understand that these same attributes are necessary when farming the land, growing the grapes and making wine.

Beyond distribution, we team up with some of South Carolina’s best restaurants and chefs hosting wine dinners and events, allowing us to spread our enthusiasm with as many people as possible around the same comforting setting where we spent most of our time growing up, the dinner table.

Kaylen Harris

South Carolina Sales

After relocating to Charleston from Columbia, Kaylen joined our team enthusiastic to learn, taste, and most importantly share our portfolio of small growers and producers.

Lauren Baisley

Upstate South Carolina Sales

Lauren was one of our early customers when she was on the flip side of the coin as a wine and beverage buyer in Charleston. After getting married and wanting to move closer to her family in the Upstate of South Carolina, Lauren decided it was time for a job change. She approached us hoping to represent our portfolio in the Greenville and Spartanburg areas. As an avid supporter of MBC, it took us no time to welcome her into the family. We can tell you first hand, to work with Lauren is nothing short of a pleasure.

Nola

Our Loyal Companion

In 2011 we rescued Nola off of I-49 in Louisiana. It wasn’t long before she shook off her past rising to the top. She is now the protector of our family and our warehouse. She loves swimming and chasing squirrels, but more than anything else, she loves if wine “happens” to spill.
