Corkage wine shop and barThe local independent Corkage Wine Shop and Bar stocks wine from small suppliers and producers.

But there is a difference. It also sell wine by the glass in its very attractive bar and offers tastings before buying.

Located in Quarry Street, tasting nights are planned to be held throughout the year to tempt the palates of not only the most discerning but of the inexperienced and evolving wine lovers as well.

Corkage Wine Shop and Bar: “Wine should be a pleasure, not an academic exercise.”

The shop is owned by Andrew and Deborah Doré who have lived in the centre of Guildford for 12 years.

They felt that while Guildford was a fantastic place, it lacked a really great wine venue and decided to try to create it themselves. So, in January 2016, the Corkage Wine Shop and Bar opened.

They have chosen a team who share their passion about wine and want to provide service which is friendly and helpful.

Deborah said: “Wine should be a pleasure not an academic exercise. People should come and explore – find the wine they love.

“We offer a variety of ways for you to try wine and find something to your taste and budget in our beautiful shop and bar. Our wines start at only £6 a bottle through to our fine wines priced up to £425.”

You can even buy wine by the glass from the self-service enomatic machine.

As the name suggests, for a £5 corkage charge they will open any bottle from their shelves for customers to drink in the bar.
