Corkk discovers the very best, hard to find, high quality English wines by only selecting bottles which have the approval of their Master of Wine, Clive Barlow, one of just 400 in the world. Clive chooses the most distinctive, interesting wines, taking our customers on a journey of discovery, introducing them to the wide variety of wines available and delighting them in the process.
Clive Barlow is a rare creature, one of only 400 Master of Wines in the world! As an early adopter of English wine, coupled with his vast knowldege, he is the perfect man for the job of curating Corkk’s Wine Box. He has worked in the British wine trade since 1979, and became a Master of Wine in 1999. He has been associated with several leading British wine companies as a consultant and trainer, was Chairman of Education at the world-renowned Institute of Masters of Wine, where he trained aspiring wine experts and leads international seminars for the Institute. He is also Panel Chair for the prestigious International Wine Challenge, Senior Judge for the Decanter Magazine competition, and teaches at the London Wine Academy.
Corkk is about sharing our surprise in and growing love of English wine. And importantly supporting small winemakers, like our neighbours, sell their excellent wines.
There are more than 700 vineyards in the UK, we are still discovering and have a lot of exciting times ahead.
Our philosophy is simple, enjoy everyday pleasures, and of those pleasures the moments in a day when we stop to eat and drink, are some of the most precious. Corkk will hopefully add to those moments in your day, giving you joy when a wine surprises or goes beautifully with a dish, bringing energy to your conversation and happiness flows.
