Sorry about all the posts (i just posted about il cantuccio). But I went back to my favorite wine shop last night, and I'm not sure if alot of people know about it. If you all do and I'm the last one - I apoligize.

Corkscrewed is in the Village walk shopping center on 1990 marlton pike (rte 70) in cherry hill.

Hubby took me to a wine tasting class there for a birthday present and i've been hooked ever since. We started this "wine hobby" about 2 years ago and are very open to new wines but like to keep the bottles under 15 bucks (we're still learning :)). Used to go to moore brothers (i believe john mcnulty (corkscrewed co-owner) is a former partner), and love the store, but not enough in -expensive bottles, and weren't too happy when we gave them our price range ;). We also frequent total wine (used to be cherry hill fine wine and spirits), but although they have a ton of selection, there isn't anyone there to help you (which we desperately need).

Corkscrewed has about 100 bottles of wine at any given time, most under $20, with a nice variety 10 and under. It's not as pretty as moore brothers, but they are always willing to help and recommend things. John and his staff have tasted every bottle, so they know first hand what they have. They also carry a small selection of beer,sake, olive oil and a few hard alcohols. They have classes at the personal chef school next door and have big tastings twice a year, along with wine dinners about 1once every 2 months (usually 75 bucks a head, but john brings several wines and pairs it with all the courses)'s really alot of fun! and the village walk now has a variety of byob restaurants (sushi, italian, the other figs - now called AMEA, bobby chez, miel, etc..), so that helps make it worth the trip!

Anyway, I'll get of my soapbox now, but i really love this store and i thought xome of you chowhounds might be interested ;)
