ABOUT US

At Corcoran Vineyards, it's now all about wine and cider. We were winery 11 in Loudoun back in 2004 when we opened the winery to the public, we had planted our vineyard in 2001. Today Loudoun has 45 wineries, and just one Cidery.


We have always been a small family run winery and that is still the case today. We are only open to the public on weekends at the farm from 12noon until 5:00pm. We don't have large crowds or have special events, our focus continues to be quality wines and hard cider. Something very unique at Corcoran is that Lori Corcoran is always on hand to answer any questions our guests have each weekend.


Corcoran was the first Winery/Brewery in the Commonwealth and now with our first offering of Hard Cider, we are excited to be able to carry on the tradition that Thomas Jefferson started back in 1769 when he planted numerous varieties of apples at Monticello.


Our brewery grew too large for our farm and so to meet demand we moved the brewery from the farm to our new location in Purcellville. This allowed us to repurpose the original brewery barn into the cider barn and offer hard cider, along with our wines side by side. So for those who don't like wine or are looking for a gluten free option, they now have a choice at Corcoran. For your beer lovers, our new brewery is just 5 miles down the road and has 12 different beers on tap waiting for you to sample. We hope when you visit the winery, cidery or brewery that we can make your visit a memorable one.

OUR WINEMAKER

Lori Corcoran

We are a small family owned winery situated on our family farm in Loudoun County. Our production started at 550 cases and currently we are producing about 5000 cases including our new Cider. I received my degree in Administration of Justice, but soon got married and had children so I never went into that field. Luckily for me I have always enjoyed farming and getting my hands dirty.


When we started our vineyard back in 2001, we decided shortly after that we would keep our grapes and start making wine. I studied hands on at first then went to Virginia Tech where I learned the chemistry side of winemaking. I think my style as a winemaker is evolving every year. It is so exciting because every year harvest is different. I really try to capture the true characteristics of the grapes in very bottle. Learn more about Lori and her wine at her Blog.

OUR CIDER

Hard Cider ?

So what the heck is Hard Cider? Cider is fermented apple juice, just like our apple wine, but with no sugar added. Our cider is carbonated and crisp and refreshing. Just as our wines are made in the vineyard, our cider is truly made in the apple orchard. We choose apples for Tannins, Sugar and Acid, thus combining the best of each variety to create sophisticated flavors that range somewhere between a glass of wine and a cold beer.
