Itinerary: Corcoran Vineyards, Hillsborough Vineyards and Sunset Hills Vineyards.
1st stop: Corcoran Vineyards
Address: 14635 Corkys Farm Lane • Waterford, Virginia 20197
“At Corcoran Vineyards it is all about the wine. Corcoran wines are created using traditional methods that enable the full flavors of the grapes to be tasted in every bottle. Limited production, meticulous cellar work, and careful selection of fruit ensure the highest quality possible.” Enjoy the scenic picnic area by the beautiful pond and lose yourself in some of the most flavorful wines.
Next stop: Hillsborough Vineyards
“Experience a Revolution in Virginia Wine that is driven by the dedication to handcraft wines made only from grapes that have proven themselves, and not those popularized by other regions. Hillsborough Vineyards is a family owned vineyard and winery specializing in the small batch production of complex wines that are in harmony with the terroir of Virginia.”
Last Stop: Sunset Hills Vineyard
Address: 38295 Fremont Overlook Lane, Purcellville Virginia
“Providing an atmosphere like no other, Sunset Hills Vineyard shares spectacular mountain and sunset views, pastoral old-world style farm grounds and a stunning Amish restored historic barn. From vine to wine, the grapes at Sunset Hills pass a set of hands and eyes a minimum of fifteen times. They are hand tended, handpicked and hand sorted to ensure only the best grapes end up in the bottle. This obsession with quality produces some of the best wines you’ll taste in DC’s Wine Country and beyond, including international award winners.”
These are just a few of some of the best wineries in the VA. But don’t just take my word for it, go and see for yourself!
