Being a Fair Oaks native and the youngest of one other sibling, I was raised by a hard-working single mother. As an adult, and also a single mother, nothing excited me more than to get through the daunting work week and planning weekend get together brunch menus for family & friends at home. I didn’t fail to recognize that everyone was always happy sipping on a sparkling mimosa, eating delicious food and reminiscing with people that meant the most.
Sadly in 2019 my best friend, my mother passed away unexpectedly. It was a tragedy to my heart, and I was broken, lost and stuck in a job that made me miserable. While trying to figure out my life, I stumbled upon a very unique space at the Almond Orchard center that would change my life forever, like serendipity KORK WAS BORN! KORK was created with every ounce of my heart. I then managed to open the doors Jan 2021, in the middle of one of the worst pandemics and survived! Being the first and only wine bar in Fair oaks, it has become the place where you can come and forget that you’ve had a bad day, maybe meet a new friend or even run into a long lost familiar face. Some people often describe it as “good vibes” “cozy” “warm” & “welcoming” – Food and Wine have always been my passion, and I am forever grateful to be able to share it with you! Cheers!!
