The first spring weekend in Virginia was beautiful – clear blue skies and plenty of bright sunshine. The brown lawns are turning green, trees are beginning to flower, and gardens are waking up. Virginia wine lovers were awakened at the call of spring too. Based on the producers I visited and what I heard from friends who were out enjoying Virginia wine country, Virginia tasting rooms were well visited by Virginia wine lovers. This week’s Vine Spot Visual’s feature highlights a popular wine destination on the Loudoun County Wine Trail that’s producing award winning wines of exceptional balance and flavor.
Relax by the pond and enjoy a glass of Corcoran wine!
The picture above was taken at Corcoran Vineyards, located in the charming village of Waterford, just northwest of Leesburg. Corcoran Vineyards is owned by Jim and Lori Corcoran. Lori Corcoran, the winemaker, is crafting a range of quality wines to suit every palate preference. The tasting room is housed in a circa 1750’s restored log cabin farm house that overlooks a beautiful pond. During the spring and summer months, the tall shade trees that surround the pond are great spots to picnic and enjoy a bottle or two of Corcoran wine. Spring and summertime favorites like Chardonnay and Seyval Blanc are available in the tasting room, as well as Malbec, a Meritage red wine blend, and Mary’s Cuvee – a special blend crafted by Lori Corcoran and Virginia wine super-star Mary Watson DeLauder. Look for Corcoran’s summertime release of Traminette and Cabernet Franc wines and be sure to check out Corcoran at Hunters Run Wine Barn on Route 9 too. Have a question about this post, friends?
