Big Cork Pours at Wine in the Woods

The Big Cork team poured wine at the Wine in the Woods event at Symphony Woods in Columbia, MD. Throughout the weekend, our staff and volunteers served hundreds that lined up to try our award winning wines including our Chardonnay, Traminette, Vidal Blanc, Late Harvest Vidal Blanc and our new Merlot wine. Thank you for those that visited us at Tent #7 and took the time to try our wines. We are amazed by the support we received, and we look forward to seeing everyone at future tasting events!
