Uncorking the Lighter Side of Wine

Making Dreams Come True

Luke Taylor
Principal + Host

A wine lover always longing for a wine and food experience. Luke first journeyed to wine country years ago. Instantly, he fell in love with all wine country had to offer. More trips led to many great life experiences in Napa/Sonoma including getting engaged to his lovely wife. His affection for wine country continues with the founding of, Cork & Taylor, a full-service customized boutique wine tour & travel concierge consultancy along with host of the Cork & Taylor Wine Podcast.

Taylor is also currently an avid golfer, a proud father of three and Principal of the premier Ohio boutique wine distributorship specializing in Napa and Sonoma wines. This affords him an extensive network of contacts in the Napa and Sonoma wine industry. More importantly, it enables him to organize exceptional VIP winery experiences, that are not otherwise available to the general public. His love and passion for all things wine, he wants to pass this onto to each and everyone of his clients and listeners. Let him turn the ordinary into extraordinary or at the least let him uncork the lighter side of wine!

Luke Taylor’s Cork & Taylor podcasts are well worth a listen.  His years of experience in the wine trade, owning his own distributorship, give him the background to ask probing questions—while his irreverent personality makes those questions intriguing and off-beat.  Highly recommended!
