Cork This! Winery

Cork This WinerySummary: Anyone living near Conroe, Texas just outside of Houston has access to a one-of-a-kind urban winery and tasting room located in the small town of Montgomery. For anyone near Cork This! Winery, the winery provides a relaxing and fun place to hang out. Look for wine by the glass, wine slushies, cheese and salami trays.

Cork This WineryVisitors can create their own series of wine flights. Simply check off four wines to taste. The tastings are delivered by way of a small wooden paddle with grooves to hold four small glass carafes. A wine glass accompanies the assortment and visitors can taste the wines in any order they wish. These wine paddle flights are served at the tasting counter and at tables.

The idea for Cork This! Winery began in 2009 as an idea of two entrepreneurs who wanted to start their own small business. Over lunch one day, they thought a winery would be fun. Today Karla Nash is the sole owner of Cork This! Winery and has created a lovely atmosphere for wine lovers. As an urban winery, Cork This! Winery has created a facility that includes many aspects of a winery tasting room.

Although we did not have the opportunity to meet Karla we discovered that she has a sense of humor. Both the name of the winery and the cautions on the wine label descriptions are humorous.
