Hi! We’re Corc. - Nick and Emily. We’re a small, independent wine shop - maybe the only wine shop in an old railway carriage?
We’ve spent our adult lives working in a whole range of hospitality settings, and we both live to - and love to - eat and drink. Nick’s background is particularly wine-infused, having initially trained under Andy Stonely (of Casamia and the Whitebrook), and subsequently spent years as a sommelier in Michelin-starred and fine dining restaurants.
Corc has a tiny footprint, but a wide and ever-expanding reach, over the years we’ve built strong relationships with our suppliers that allow us access to a huge range of world-class wines.
We want to cut out the nonsense that’s too often associated with buying and drinking wine – you don’t need to be a chef to shop for food, so you don’t need to be a connoisseur to shop for, and enjoy, a great bottle of wine.
We’re bringing a carefully curated range of interesting, unusual, and beautiful quality wines to Barry. We want everyone who visits us to leave with something they absolutely love, personally tailored to their budget, occasion, taste, and how adventurous they want to be!
