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!

Sampling with Edouard Parinet (Owner of Chateau de Moulin Au Vent

  • Cork Wines & Spirits 1450 Washington St Hoboken, NJ, 07030 United States (map)

The Château du Moulin-à-Vent has been a leading light of wine exploitation in the Moulin-à-Vent appellation since 1732 (at least!). Located 10km south from Mâcon, in the southernmost tip of the Burgundy region, it owes its name to the old windmill that stands on the top of the hill of "les Thorins". The estate now stretches over 37 Ha of vines belonging to the greatest terroirs of the appellation, like Le Champ de Cour, La Rochelle and Les Vérillats.

In March 2009, Jean-Jacques Parinet bought the Château and its estate to the Damoy. Under the new ownership, the Château has won back its leading position.  While the terroir has always been of exceptional quality, Jean-Jacques Parinet recognised that considerable investment was needed in both the winemaking facilities and the vineyards.

70,000 vines have been replanted, while the winemaking and ageing cellars have been given a complete makeover to bring the facilities in line with the quality of the terroirs. The magnificent 2009 vintage is an outstanding example of the wine that can be made on the estate's 37 ha of vineyards, and illustrates the role the Château has as an ambassador of the appellation.
