Put a cork in it: Cova Wines suddenly shutters both locations

Put a cork in it: Cova Wines suddenly shutters both locations

Rumors flew over the weekend that Cova Wines was shutting its doors, and despite earlier indications that only the Washington Avenue location was affected, on Tuesday the company confirmed via e-mail that both the Kirby and Washington locations have been shuttered.

"To all those that enjoyed the Cova wine and food experience we are sad to say that we are closing our doors effective immediately," the message stated. "The decision was difficult but necessary. We appreciate everyone's patronage over the years and hope that everyone continues to enjoy the wonderful world of good wine, good food and good company."

Lasco chief brand officer Jonathan Horowitz said on Twitter that he is hoping to help Cova employees land in other jobs in the company, which owns The Tasting Room and Max's Wine Dive.
