THE CORKY WINERS…NOT YOUR AVERAGE WINE BUSINESS

In 2020, we formed the Corky Winers.  We have always struggled to find somewhere locally where we could buy a nice bottle of wine to pair with what we had decided to cook that evening.  Living rurally in Tolleshunt D’arcy we were limited to the local supermarket which was a good thirty-minute round trip. If disaster struck and we ran out of wine, craft beer or fancied a snack then there was no possibility of getting a delivery that same day.

Our idea of a perfect night in is made up of quality charcuterie, local produce, decent crisps, juicy IPAs and good wine. We have now made it our mission to bring these quality household essentials to your door for same day delivery.

We only sell beers and wines that we love whilst supporting small producers, whether in the South of France or in rural Essex. We will never offer the same generic selection that other shops and supermarkets fill their shelves with, instead we are proud to import our wines directly from the vineyard and to support our chosen producers.

Our craft beers are ordered in small quantities from our chosen brewery. This allows us to provide the highest quality, freshest, juiciest IPAs, DIPAs, ales and lagers to your door.

Live locally? If you have planned a nice meal, fancy a treat, have run out of wine for the weekend or are having a last-minute dinner with friends you can order online and we will deliver to your door that same-day or evening (subject to our delivery terms).

THINGS WE DON’T DO:

  • We don’t stock hundreds of wines, that’s not our thing! We hand select every wine that we sell.  We pay careful attention to the age, the growing conditions for the year in a particular region and what the experts say. There is something for everyone and every occasion in our carefully selected wines;

  • We don’t sell wines we do not or would not drink ourselves – that’s the Corky Winers way;

  • We do not try to be something we are not – we are a small, local business with a passion for wine and beer. We do not want to compete with supermarkets or those businesses bulk selling low cost wines by the case.

THINGS WE ALWAYS DO:

  • We put a lot of thought into our selections, we try to make it easier for you to find something you will like and which will compliment your food/occasion without needing to trawl through hundreds of wines;

  • We sell wines, most of which, you will struggle to find elsewhere in the UK;

  • We regularly change/add to our selections so that you can try new things.

THE CORKY WINERS TEAM

Amy and I are a couple whose love for wine and road trips around France has inspired the creation of the Corky Winers. We work together running our small family business. As a couple we believe in supporting local businesses and small producers. After our travels around France we decided to make it our mission to bring the wines we had discovered back to Essex.

Admittedly we are not Masters of Wine (we would love to be one day), but we are undoubtedly masters of drinking wine!
