Corkbuzz Restaurant and Wine Bar is located in NYC's Union Square. Our menu is built for guests to experience the magic of a perfect food and wine pairing.

Corkbuzz is guided by a simple philosophy: wine is meant to be enjoyed. Co-founder and Master Sommelier Laura Maniec views herself less as the proprietor of a wine bar and more as the enthusiastic host of a never-ending dinner party. Her humble approach is inspired by rich memories of family gatherings filled with laughter and storytelling (and wine, of course).

Maniec and the entire Corkbuzz Staff are generous with their knowledge, welcoming every chance to deepen someone’s appreciation for wine. The classes are unique and engaging. The wine selection is dynamic, smart and approachable. The food is deeply satisfying and built for guests to experience the magic of a perfect pairing. Corkbuzz offers the wine enthusiast and the adventurous novice a chance to experience one of life’s great, intangible treasures: discovery.

Enjoyed the whiskey selection but think the teacher was wrong or uninformed on several points.

Great course, very interesting and informative. Great wines as well :-) Sommelier got distracted too easily by questions, getting off topic, but very knowledgeable.

Could have been amazing but didn't really learn much. The whiskey selection was clever but too much historical details and not enough what we should look for in a whiskey. Teacher was a nice guy, but didn't answer the questions. I asked about triple distilled as was on one of the forms, but he didn't understand or elaborate. I would recommend the restaurant, but not the actual class.

Instructor let himself get distracted by two people asking redundant questions he had previously answered. The result was that we had to cover the 6 wines in 30 minutes instead of 90 minutes. Didn't feel like we learned anything insightful / applicable to the next time we try the wines. Could have asked them to save their questions for after the session.
