UPDATE: Cork Market Is Open for Business
Cork Market is now open. Check out their website HERE. They are located at 1805 14th Street NW.
According to The List Are You On It, Diane Gross and Khalid Pitts, owners of the popular 14th Street boite, Cork Wine Bar are expanding their business with a wine and gourmet food shop aptly named, Cork Market. The husband-and-wife team are hoping to create a neighborhood market with personal service that includes order tracking (to help customers remember favorite wines), take-home tasting notes and local delivery.
The shop will offer all of the wines available on Cork's European list as well as some New World wines. The first floor will hold about 60 percent wine, with the remaining space devoted to a small selection of beer, food and specialty items, including cheese, charcuterie, jams, oils, vinegars, pasta, bread and baked goods. The building's second floor will house a classroom for wine programs and private events. (1805 14th Street, NW).
