WSET certified Levels 1&2

Countless times I have been lucky enough to witness the magic of wine as not only  an art form but also a way to bring people together. It is the craftsmanship, the beauty and the potential of wine that inspires me to bring the highest quality vintners to my community. My passion for the industry  continues to grow with every success and new opportunity.

Clayton Donohue has worked at cork it winemaking since 2007. Clayton was lucky enough to be taught wine making from the original owner of Cork It David Batallie. In the short 4 years that Clayton apprenticed under David Bataille, he quickly learned the many techniques of wine making and has become an established winemaker in his own right. Clayton loves making new connections on the north shore through cork it wine making and the interaction with the many great customers that come through the doors everyday.
