Cork Wines & Spirits

We have the finest wine selection and will ensure you have the best customer experience in the area.

Cork Wines & Spirits opened in Hoboken July 2014 and in Harrison December 2014.  Both cities were in need of a fine wine shop to meet the palates of an amazing and knowledgeable crowd of wine enthusiasts. Not only do they love a delicious wine, but are willing to explore the vast ways that people extract this liquid from grapes. We have taken it upon ourselves to find winemakers who are interested in bringing their creations to New Jersey.  The Wine Guys taste every wine that is in our stores, handpicking each item, making sure that our customers receive only the best. In addition, we encourage our customers to participate in our tasting panels adding their selections to our offering!

Spanish Wine Maker, Marta Castro-Pintos at Cork

We are excited to have Marta joining us at Cork.  We will be sampling a few of her great wines and hope you will join us!

From grapes harvested at their perfect degree of ripeness, hand picked, in boxes of 25 kilos. From the vineyards in the Salnés Valley. Stemmed grape soft pressed and, following a light debourbage, the must ferments spontaneously in stainless steel tanks where they subsequently rest and stabilize until bottled.

Tasting: Straw yellow with greenish iridescence, with a highly expressive nose, marked by its varietal origin, where ripe fruit and citric fruits are noted ... 
Very elegant on the mouth and well-structured, reminiscent of fresh fruit ... with a long, marked finish.

Tasting: Ruby red, well-covered, with a young, bright appearance. Clean on the nose, with no faults, fruity aromas particular to the variety, and reminiscences of minerals. Good finish in the mouth, silky, unctuous, with a solid structure (despite being a young wine), a very well-balanced acidity and good aftertaste.

Pairing: Tender meats, white meats, roast poultry, tender casseroles, fish stews and octopus

Greek Old World Red Wine Tasting (Jan 12 & Jan 13) 5:30pm - 7:30pm

Ancient Grape Varietals 

Modern Winemaking 

In the North, the focus is on red wines, with the best vineyards found at higher elevations (over 250 m / 1,000 ft). 

For example, on the slopes of Mount Olympus, the region Rapsani is where you’ll find bush vines of Xinomavro, Krasato, and Stavroto growing on schist soils. Wines from here are usually blends, with a dominance of Xinomavro and spicy flavors of raspberry, anise, fennel, cherry, and occasionally olive or tomato with tannins that build slowly (but surely!) on the palate. This area is kind of like the mountainous Rhône of Greece, which means the wines from here are ideal for Rhône blend lovers.

Through constant research, the use of innovative techniques, the direct control of all production processes, we seek in our wines elegance, exclusivity and identity with its territory. A fascinating challenge addressed in the sign of absolute quality. Today the company has 14 labels present in 4 continents, a fact that more than any other ahead with a significant entrepreneurial dynamism.
