Corks Out Alderley Edge – A Destination Wine Bar 

Corks Out Alderley Edge has always been a lovely place for you to wine shop, but it doesn’t stop there, two years ago they installed state of the art tasting machines that enable you to sample different wines, drink by the glass or try before you buy.  This concept has expanded over the last year so that customers are now also able to purchase any bottle of wine and pay a small corkage fee to sit and drink in. This is a modern, state of the art wine shop, with an attractive, classy twist. It attracts well known celebrities and customers from further afield. The range is unique, yet affordable, and starts at £4.99, with very competitive pricing on the well known icon brands and fine wines.


As well as still being able to use the fun tasting machines, or ‘Wine Jukeboxes’ as they refer to them they also now serve Champagne and Prosecco by the glass, not to mention a cocktail menu.  If you ask for a G&T, you don’t get your regular branded cheap Gin and Tonic, you get one of their top specialist Gin’s and a classy 1724 tonic.  And, if you’re not feeling like something alcoholic, their soft drink list is pretty classy too. Do a bit of people watching from the new window seating as you sip a chilled glass of fizz. Or settle down to a full bodied red whilst relaxing on the new bar seating throughout the store. Wherever you sit, inside or out, you can be sure of a cool ambience and great value for money.

We were the first outside of London to put these tasting machines into our stores and the first nationally to offer them in retail alongside a wine bar concept.  This has grown for us over the last year and we are developing what we are doing with our stores, our Stockton Heath outlet has already become a destination wine bar with its wine garden and private indoor seating area.  We are innovative and focused on getting it right for our customers.  It’s no longer a wine store where customers think they need to know something about wine to come in, now it’s now a wine bar with a difference, better quality wines, more choice and somewhere to meet friends and learn more about what’s in their glass.


The wine bar experience is not only available at Alderley and Stockton Heath but alsoChesterand Timperley too.
