    Hop to it!

    As we have been known predominantly as a wine shop here at Corks Out, it is safe for me to assume that the majority of our followers are predominantly wine focused.

    Real Ale ,Beer and Lager in a nut shell

      If you have visited us recently you may have noticed that our range of beers has some what proliferated. It would seem that beer is back; not thebland, alcoholised mass produced fluid that sadly some of us have come to associate with beer but individualistic, characterful, unique libations known as real ales.

    The Whiff and The Sniff

    SATIN APHRODITE

    10.47pm, full moon, the marina down by the harbour. Moonbeams bounce off the ocean and wantonly scatter stars across the night sky. My name is Cino Noir, private wine investigator for hire.  It had been a long day, one of those days that left me with the type of thirst only fine Chardonnay could quench.  I walked past a fleet of yachts until I ap…

    Know Your Champagne Label
