I lived in Columbia, SC for a few years. Left in 2000. At that time there were two decent wine stores. One was in the Five Points area, small store (cannot remember the name) but good variety maybe a little pricey. The second one much bigger was near the University campus; I believe it was Total Wine. Be mindful that (at least when I was there) you can not buy any alcohol on Sundays.

Yes, there three Total Wine stores in South Carolia: Columbia, Greenville and Charleston.
Redfish on HHI (Cross Island Pkwy. just north of the Sea Pines Circle) is a higher end restaurant and wine store; you can buy retail and take out, or purchase w/dinner for a $10-15 corkage. Great dinner spot, but it fills up fast.

'A Wine & Spirit Shop' is just north of Shelter Cove/across from Palmetto Dunes on the southbound side of US 278. Small shop w/good selection, fairly knowledgeable owners. There is another shop I frequent on the northbound side of US 278 just South of Palmetto Dunes - right next to a bike shop. Lots of usual suspects, but a few nice wines w/some age. I've purchased quite a few wines from this shop over the years. Can't remember the name, but if you get to the traffic light @ PD Plantation (headed north), you've gone too far.

As others report, HHI wine shop prices are high due to the clientele. Also - at least on HHI - you can buy wine and beer on Sunday, but most of the shops are closed. The Harris Teeter supermarket, Whole Foods and a few other grocery stores sell on Sundays if you're in a pinch.

I second this recommendation. They have a cellar in the back. When I was there in Nov., they had a few vintages of Haut Brion, Mouton and Lafite. They also have a nice selection of older CA cabs (Phelps, Spottswoode, Diamond Creek, Dominus, etc.).
