Our Team

Corkbuzz employees are sommeliers, chefs, innovators and oenophiles. We all came together because we share common obsessions: wine, food and hospitality. Our belief is that if you are passionate about what you do, then it doesn’t feel like work, and that’s the key to a successful business.

 

While we have key roles that help make our wine studio run smoothly, we are one team and will do anything we can to make your experience better. The most important thing to us is that you feel like a guest in our home.
