Tell us about CorkDorks and how long you’ve been in business!
Erika: Midtown Wine & Spirits was established in 1994 and quickly became the go-to store for those working in health care along Nashville’s hospital corridor, which includes Baptist and Centennial hospitals. Because of our convenient location off the Church Street exit on I-40, downtown’s business sect began shopping Midtown, too. Then word spread to the Vanderbilt community, West End, and other neighbors who appreciate the customer service and wine knowledge offered by the Cork Dorks at Midtown.
Due to demand for a larger selection, owner Paul Patel began drawing up plans for what is now Middle Tennessee’s premier beverage and party destination – the Midtown Wine, Spirits, Beer and Cigar Complex, located at 1610 Church Street.
In 2003, Midtown expanded to 12,000 square feet. The complex now includes a large wine and spirits store (that also happens to house a huge selection of high gravity beers), as well as a beer store where customers can find every beer available in Middle Tennessee. Midtown’s beer store features a walk-in humidor stocked with cigars from around the world.
Over the years, Midtown has earned the reputation of being Nashville’s top destination for every day and collectible wines. Why? Because the staff at Midtown knows its stuff! We are wine connoisseurs and aficionados. We advise collectors and educate novices. For years, Midtown has hosted the most interesting and special wine events in Nashville. From the ABC’s of Tasting to in-depth seminars on food pairing, California Cabernet, Bordeaux, Tuscany, grape varietals, and more, the staff at Midtown Wine & Spirits has a good relationship with the suppliers and the winemakers who make it happen.
Then, there is our infatuation with single malt scotches, rare bourbons, trendy vodkas, and – of course – Tennessee’s one and only Jack Daniel’s Whiskey. There isn’t a liquor available in Middle Tennessee that you can’t get at Midtown!
Midtown is also Middle Tennessee’s beer haven of choice because whether you prefer high-gravity specialty beers or those “specialty” beers made in Milwaukee, we stock them all. We also carry all the mixers, ice, and premium cigars you need. So, come by Midtown Wine & Spirits to experience why we are Middle Tennessee’s premier destination for wine, spirits, beer, and cigars. And if you happen to need any validation, consult the Nashville Scene or any other reader’s poll; they will tell you Midtown Wine & Spirits is Nashville’s BEST wine and spirits store for many years running! In 2016, Midtown Wine & Spirits became Midtown Corkdorks and we expanded our brand with our Green Hills Corkdorks location.
