Cork Wine Bar, DC

Cork Wine Bar and Cork Market & Tasting Room are the creations of Logan Circle residents Diane Gross and Khalid Pitts.

The wine bar offers at least 50 wines by the glass and 250 bottles from small producers around the world. It is an affordable, casually elegant place that demystifies the world of wine by giving you real descriptions of what you are drinking, flights of wine so you can explore different regions and varietals, and suggestions for pairing our wines with our offerings of plates to share.

The market is a boutique wine store with over 300 selections of small production, sustainably made wines. The market also offers freshly prepared food, cheese, and charcuterie, as well as specialty food items. Cork Market hosts regular wine tastings, classes and other special wine events. The Tasting Room is a beautiful loft space where we hold our wine-related events, and is also available to reserve for private events.

We created Cork because we wanted to share our love of delicious food and wine with our community in a comfortable atmosphere where the wine and food can be appreciated by everyone.

Cork is not merely a place to enjoy food and wine, but a place to discover and share information about wine. Visit our Events section for information on upcoming wine tastings and classes. —
