We have enjoyed the year and look forward to more fun to come in 2010.Classes will be a huge focus for us this coming year as we look to educate others about oak alternatives and wine making here at Corcoran. And as spring approaches we will start our Wine & Herb classes with Sommelier, Mary Watson DeLauder and winemaker, Lori Corcoran. Again we would like to wish you a wonderful holiday season and thank you for your patronage. Cheers!

2 cups water
2 cinnamon sticks
10 whole allspice
10 whole cloves
1/2 cup sugar
Zest of 1/2 orange, plus orange slices for garnish (optional)
One bottle of Corcoran Vineyards Cabernet Franc
Combine water, spices, sugar and orange zest in 2 quart saucepan. Stir and cook over medium heat until sugar is dissolved. Simmer over low heat for one hour. The liquid will reduce by half, and fill your home with a wonderful aroma! Strain out spices and return liquid to pan. Add one bottle of Corcoran Vineyards Cabernet Franc. Heat on low until warm (being careful not to boil). Enjoy -- Cheers!

So since we experienced our first measurable snowfall this past weekend, we have decided to offer our Sparkling Wine class again on Saturday, December 12th at Noon and we will have our Holiday Open House this Saturday too.Explore the World of Sparkling Wine with Mary Watson DeLauder. We have over 5 different sparkling wines to enjoy and even buy to bring home for the holidays. From Spain to France to Italy and California to even Australia. These are are different and you can taste the difference that each region has to offer...so make your reservation and come on out... http://shop.corcoranvineyards.com/
Our Holiday Open House will also be this Saturday, which means I will make a warm mulled wine using our 2007 Cabernet Franc and I have lots of holiday treats some that pair exceptionally well with our 2008 Malbec...yum! Just because it is the holidays and we are hoping for good weather this weekend...we will be bringing out our new release of the Mary's Cuvee...a red wine blend created by Mary and I which we like to call..."Two chicks having fun, blending wine and enjoying our passion." Hope to see you all this weekend.
