This January, Union Market is welcoming a new vendor to its expansive 5th Street NE space. Cordial, opening January 2013, will sell hand-selected beers and wines from vineyards, craft breweries and small producers.
In a video interview, Cordial President and owner Eric Rohleder says he chose to bring his business to Union Market because of the market’s energy.
“I think (the market’s) real commitment to independent artisanal suppliers and producers on a culinary level, really resonates with what we are trying to do at Cordial Fine Wine & Spirits,” Rohleder said in the interview.
In addition to providing patrons with a selection of libations, Cordial will also offer party planning services for clients interested in hosting cocktail parties and other events at work, at home or in the company’s space.
Cordial’s website says the store will open in January of 2013, but does not specify a date.
Union Market is located at 1309 5th Street NE and is open Wednesday through Friday from 11 am until 8 pm, and Saturday and Sunday from 8 am until 8 pm.
