Destinations: Corcoran Vineyards and Sunset Hills Vineyard

If award-winning wines are on your menu, then you’ll want to book now for Reston Limousine’s Public Wine Tour to Corcoran Vineyards and Sunset Hills Vineyard this weekend.

First stop on the Saturday, June 27, tour is Corcoran Vineyards, where owner and winemaker Lori Corcoran produces around 2,000 cases of award-winning wines each season.

The day of the tour is Corcoran Day at the Vineyard, when you’ll get to meet fellow Corcorans in sampling in a1750 restored log cabin just outside the village of Waterford. Among the wines available are the just released 2008 Viognier, dry white with flavors of peaches, cantaloupe and honeydew melons. And find out why the 2007 Chardonnay garnered the silver in the 2008 Atlantic Seaboard Wine Competition, just one of the latest awards Corcoran has collected over the years.

Next stop is Sunset Hills Vineyard, where owners Mike and Diane Canney oversee their 45-acre property located halfway between Purcellville and Waterford.

Tastings take place in a restored 130-year-old stone and oak barn, which features two-story wraparound decks that boast gorgeous views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Among the new wines to sample is the 2008 Viognier, described as “wonderfully aromatic wine with aromas of pineapple,citrus and honey.” Also on the wine portfolio are the 2007 Reserve Chardonnay and 2007 Chardonnay — the winery’s best Chardonnay, they say!
