Corks – Great Wines At Even Greater Prices

By  |  0 Comments

In 2010, when wine tax was removed wine lovers in Hong Kong were expecting a significant reduction in  prices, making wine far more affordable. Yet retail pricing hardly budged. This sparked an idea for entrepreneur Miles Henderson who partnered with veteran wine merchant Steve House, and established Corks as a streamlined, virtual wine retailer.

The model for the business was to try and keep fixed costs to an absolute minimum and by doing so keep the prices as consumer friendly as possible.  As a result Corks is able to sell wine at prices typically 30% lower than comparable wines available in other retail outlets. “I enjoy wine, but I enjoy it more when I pay a fair price for it. I think our customers feel the same way.” – Miles Henderson

Combining Steve’s 10 years of experience in the industry, Corks was born to give just about anyone from wine experts or just a casual drinker who likes a glass after a long day at work great wines at even greater prices. “Our whole philosophy is we go that extra mile to find great quality wines which we can sell at amazing prices so that practically anyone can afford to enjoy good wine” – Steve House

Corks extensive collection of wines hail from all over the world, with what we consider “best of breed” products in many categories. One of the lines they would particularly like to draw attention to is the prized Two Rivers of Marlborough. Gaining a gold medal at the New World Wine Awards in 2014 with his new L’lle de Beauté Rosé, which was a huge success at the recent Flying Winemakers ‘Rose Revolution’, Winemaker David Clouston has led his winery straight to the pinnacle of New Zealand winemaking.

The unique flavors of Two River’s amazing wines are created from a blend of grapes carefully selected from some of the choicest vineyards in both valleys of Marlborough. Take the Two Rivers ‘Convergence’ Sauvignon Blanc, combining the tropical essence of the Wairau with the aromatic herbaceous qualities of the Awatere, the wine strikes the perfect balance to express each regions individual quality.
