October is Virginia Wine Month. Lots of happenings all around the state at many wineries and on all the wine trails. Of course Corcoran is no exception. We are currently fermenting our new Rose, Chardonnay, Riesling, Traminette and Chambourcin and our Malbec and Cabernet Franc are still ripening on the vine. 2009 seems to be a great year for grapes.
October 3rd, Corcoran is opening a new Wine Tasting Barn at Hunters Run which is on Route 9. Look for all the fall decor and come on into this beautiful barn to taste some of Corcoran favorites. We will be open every Friday from 3:00pm til 7:00pm and on Saturdays and Sundays from 12noon til 6:00pm.
Friday, October 9th come to Lansdowne and Rendezvous with Jack Diamond, Host of The Jack Diamond Morning Show on MIX 107.3 in Washington, DC. Join us as we savor the Chesapeake featuring Corcoran Wines and dance to the music of The Jack Diamond- Jim Steed Band along the way. Call 888.541.7946 and tell them you are a Corcoran fan, give the promo code JMEN to receive a discount!
Then we will be off to the Hot Air Balloon & Wine Festival at Historic Long Branch on October 16, 17, & 18. This is a wonderful event out in the country enjoying the crisp fall air and watching the beautiful balloons go up in the sky while sipping some of Virginias finest wines.
If we don't see you at one of our many events or tasting rooms this month, enjoy a glass of Virginia Wine with a friend!
