Cork Wine Bar and Cork Market & Tasting Room are the creations of Logan Circle residents Diane Gross and Khalid Pitts.

The wine bar offers at least 50 wines by the glass and 250 bottles from small producers around the world. It is an affordable, casually elegant place that demystifies the world of wine by giving you real descriptions of what you are drinking, flights of wine so you can explore different regions and varietals, and suggestions for pairing our wines with our offerings of plates to share.

The market is a boutique wine store with over 300 selections of small production, sustainably made wines. The market also offers freshly prepared food, cheese, and charcuterie, as well as specialty food items. Cork Market hosts regular wine tastings, classes and other special wine events. The Tasting Room is a beautiful loft space where we hold our wine-related events, and is also available to reserve for private events.

We created Cork because we wanted to share our love of delicious food and wine with our community in a comfortable atmosphere where the wine and food can be appreciated by everyone.

Cork is not merely a place to enjoy food and wine, but a place to discover and share information about wine. Visit our Events section for information on upcoming wine tastings and classes.

Diane Gross & Khalid Pitts


Diane and Khalid opened Cork Wine Bar in January 2008 in their Logan Circle neighborhood with the dream of creating a welcoming space for people to come with friends and family to try outstanding wines, often from unexplored regions of the world, paired with good, simple, local food. In December 2009, the couple expanded their offerings with the debut of Cork Market & Tasting Room. Khalid is a long-time social justice activist and is currently the National Political Director for the Sierra Club and a member of the Executive Board of the D.C. Health Benefit Exchange Authority. Prior to co-founding Cork, Diane was a civil rights lawyer and was General Counsel to Senator Barbara Mikulski. They live in Logan Circle with their two children.

​York Van Nixon IV

General Manager

York has been part of the Cork family since 2008, shortly after the doors first opened for business. His passion for wine and food helped him not only to excel as a server, but also helped his quick rise to floor and bar manager. Now as the General Manager, York's dynamic, resourceful, and proactive approach has helped Cork maintain it's excellence in the restaurant industry. A native Washingtonian, York is proud to not only have been a part of one of the pioneer restaurants on 14th street, but also a resident of this up-and-coming neighborhood.

Jason Schreuder

Executive Chef

A native of Eastern Long Island, Jason graduated from the University of Maryland in 1999 with a degree in political science. Despite his interest in pursuing a career in law, he was unable to overcome his passion for cooking. Jason is a graduate of the International Culinary Center (formerly the French Culinary Institute) in New York City and also a former sous chef both at Cork under the wine bar's first chef, Ron Tanaka, and at Cleveland Park's Ripple. His wide-ranging background includes stints at Jean-Georges' Mercer Kitchen, BLT Fish and San Francisco's Absinthe and NoPA. As Executive Chef, Jason continues his support of local and sustainable products and producers while creating plates to share with a nod to continental cuisine. He resides in Columbia Heights with his wife Tara and their two puppies.
