FAQ and answers

Dear Friends, Neighbors, and Customers


As you know, we had to close all of our locations in NYC and Charlotte, North Carolina, on March 16, 2020. We will remain closed until we can safely open. 


Classes- We know that many of you have classes you booked with us before the closures, rest assured that you will have a credit for these classes with us at Corkbuzz that will not expire. We have a log of all attendees and will be emailing all when we are authorized to open for business. You can opt to convert the class to a digital gift card by emailing orders@corkbuzz.com, but rest assured this is not necessary. 


Virtual Classes- We will be scheduling virtual wine classes to keep everyone's spirits up during these uncertain times. Please click here for the schedule, and if you have a previously booked class and we are holding credit for you, please email laura@corkbuzz.com for a complimentary link to the class if you can attend. 


Events- Many guests have trusted us to book their next special occasion, corporate event, and private wine classes, thank you for your support. If you have already booked an event and chosen a date, you will have priority for rescheduling when we can resume business. You can contact kim@corkbuzz.com to reschedule or discuss your deposits. Her work hours have been modified and are Monday-Friday from 12 pm -3 pm, so please be patient while she gets back to everyone. We have also started offering private virtual classes and tastings. Check out the events page here for more information or to inquire.


Retail Wine- We are offering custom wine "care" packages chosen by Master Sommelier, Laura Fiorvanti, for NYC and Charlotte. To request a wine "care package,"  please email customwineny@corkbuzz.com for NYC and customwineclt@corkbuzz.com for CLT. Include your desired total budget, number of bottles, avg bottle price, style of wine, and any other information you find helpful to describe your preference of wine. We will email you a proposed selection of wine and, once approved, will send you a link to pay for the wine. We have options of curbside pick-up (at designated times) shipment (via FedEx for an additional charge) and Bill and Hold Option for pick-up when it is safe to do so. 


Guided Virtual Tastings and Happy Hours: To request a guided wine tasting, please email laura@corkbuzz.com, and someone will get back to you with availability. 


We can't wait to open and serve you again, and thank you for your loyalty. We will get through this and drink together again soon. 


Arms around, 

Laura
