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

Located in the historic center of Ciro Marina, the heart of the Calabrian wine-growing, the company includes a farm of over 100 hectares, distributed among rolling hills and sunny plains near the Ionian Sea, situated in the classical part of Ciro. Always been the company's mission is the restoration and enhancement of indigenous grapes such Gaglioppo, the Greek Black, Calabrese and finally the Pecorello. 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.

The wines for the dinner are made in a traditional method, the style for both red and whites recall bright fruit, acidity and long expressive finish. these are real easy seller, and drink very well. ALL the material for marketing included.
