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!

Interested in Living Longer? Join us for Cannonau Wine Sampling

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

Dr. Oz has featured Dan Buettner & his research revealing a few "blue zone" areas where the population is three times more likely to live into their 90's than those of us in the U.S.  One of these regions is in Sardinia and the difference there is the Cannonau grape.

Cannonau has been growing in Sardinia since the Neolithic period and is one of the most widely planted varietals on the island. The most recent studies indicate that Cannonau, which is very rich in phenols, is the wine to drink to facilitate living longer. This is supported by the fact that Sardinia has one of the world’s largest populations of centenarians. Originally called Triente, Pala’s Cannonau has been renamed i Fiori (the flowers) in honor of Sardinia’s biodiversity. The flower on the label is an endemic plant of the island. After a temperature controlled fermentation, the wine spends eight months in stainless steel and concrete tanks and then rests for 2–3 months in bottle before release.

Join us to sample two wines made from the Cannonau grape.
