Barrel Tasting without the Barrels??

Well...we are off and running in this new year and ready to start our Educational Series here at Corcoran Vineyards (in the Winery).

Our first class of the year will be a Barrel Tasting...but without the Barrels on Sunday, January 24th starting at 1:00 pm. We have gotten rid of all our barrels in the 2009 harvest and have opted to use only stainless steel with miro-ox. We use several different oak alternatives and that is what we would like to teach in our first class. Not only about oak alternatives, but about oak. What does Hungarian, French or American Oak really taste like. In our class we will be tasting each oak and analyzing their aromas and flavor profiles. We will then be able to taste wine aged in each of the different oaks, not in barrels, but will you be able to taste the different flavors or smell the different aromas??

Come into the winery and experience something like no other. Limited seating and registration is at
