The wine-bar culture has lately begun to catch on in our country, as well, the consumers’ interest for such establishments being higher and higher. Prior to its official opening, scheduled for August 10th, the newest arrival in the landscape of Bucharest wine-bars, “Corks – cozy bar” (Bacani Str.) was presented as a preview to friends, a group which comprised several wine bloggers, journalists, sommeliers or mere individuals passionate about wine. “Corks, as you well know, signifies cork stoppers. Simple! Precisely around this idea the wine-bar was built and furnished. Since there will be served, in addition to the wines, other varieties of quality drinks, as well, a few cocktails, a few snacks, the concept easily differentiates itself from the wine-bar idea, which determined us to add the «cozy bar» phrase to the name. A place where everybody feels relaxed, at home”, stated Ruxandra Chendi, the one who, joined by her husband, George, set the foundation of this business. The preview presentation of Corks wine-bar could not possibly lack a wine tasting. Thus, those present were able to taste a selection of rose varieties from the SmartDrinks.Ro portfolio, a division of Alma Tim Distribution company, held by the two Buca-Chendi spouses. Corks seems to be at the moment the largest wine-bar in the Old Centre of Bucharest, boasting a capacity of 40 seats inside and 20 seats in the garden. According to George Buca-Chendi, the wine-bar is also fitted with two rooms, located in the basement, which will be, nonetheless, furnished in the near future. The space management was handled by Mihai Popescu, an interior designer accountable for the furnishing of several top restaurants and pubs in Romania. Both the garden, and the wine-bar interior in particular, are centered around the idea of wine: from wooden elements and cork stoppers of fixtures to the wall which imitates a pile of wine bottles, placed slightly “sloppily”. All the wooden design components are balanced by the stone walls imitating limestone which, warmly and carefully illuminated, provide the space with a feeling of whole-heartedness. Even the “calling cards” of the wine-bar were thought in such a way that they would not deviate from the imposed trend: the Corks address and contact data are printed on regular cork stoppers. The Corks menu shall host in excess of 300 wines, all with the possibility of being also served in glasses. And this is due to the partnership which the Corks owners initiated with Bermar, one of the best manufacturers of wine preservation and storage systems. Alma Tim Distribution was founded in 1998 in Bucharest, having as core business the distribution of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. During the 12 years of intense activity on the specialized market in Bucharest, the company concluded solid partnerships with top producers of certain categories of drinks, both in Romania, as well as in Europe, such as: SAB Miller Romania, Fiee des Lois, BBC Wines & Spirits, Maison de Riviere, Blasson de Bourgogne, Casa Laurenti, Casa Girelli and Schenk. After having made a name for itself for several years among the Romanian distributors of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, Alma Tim Distribution took last year the decision of developing an on-line division, as well, SmartDrinks.Ro, by means of which they would promote and sell a wide range of beverages, a line comprising several import wines and a series of products from Romania.
