Successful Weekend

Wow! What a great weekend of wine!

We started off on Friday night being honored to have our 2008 Viognier poured at the James Beard Foundation in New York City. It was absolutely a wonderful experience being there and chatting about our wines and Virginia wines! Can you believe that there are still people out there that haven't had a chance to taste a Virginia wine. Boy are they missin' out!

I also had the pleasure of meeting this wonderful family here in the photo with Chef Christopher Edwards of the Restaurant at Patowmack Farm in Lovettsville, Virginia. He was our "celebrity" chef that night at the James Beard House and he did a great job on all the food...delicious!!

Then on Sunday we started our new Educational Workshop here at Corcoran. We explained all about oak and how oak plays a role in the winery. Barrels or no barrels?? We enjoyed all the questions and enthusiasm about Corcoran wines. Look for a series of dates for our next wine class sessions! Register here...
