Corotoman Day

Time: 11am-6pm

Location: Philip Carter Winery

Corotoman Day

One of the colonial Virginia’s most important houses, Robert “King” Carter’s Corotoman (circa 1725) stretched an impressive 90 by 40 feet along the banks of the Rappahannock River in Lancaster County, Virginia.  Graced by an arcaded piazza, a second-story gallery and multiple pavilions, Corotoman signified Carter’s position as Virginia’s wealthiest, most powerful tobacco planter.  Carter stocked Corotoman’s cellars with the finest wines and claimed the most impressive wine cellar in the New World, but lost some 900 bottles when fire destroyed the mansion in 1729.

 

We celebrate this important day in American wine culture with our annual 30% discount on bottles of Corotoman to the public (maximum 2 cases per customer).

Carter Charter Club members receive a 40% discount and Ambassador Club members receive 50% cases today and every day!

End date: November 25, 2018

Location: Philip Carter Winery

40% off select wines on Black Friday, 25% off select wines on Saturday and Sunday.  Live music all holiday weekend.

We invite you and your family to join us for a very special thanksgiving tradition when we open our library of wines to offer vertical tastings of Philip Carter wines spanning the past decade.  A vertical tasting is arranged to taste different vintages of the same style of wine.  In our vertical tasting, we will evaluate our different vintages to discern the influence of the growing seasons and the influence of the hands and minds that were behind both the growing of the grapes and the cellar practices for these wines.

For $25 per person come out and taste these library wines, along with our current tasting line-up for a total of fifteen wines!  Carter Charter Members receive a 15% discount.  This experience is truly a treat that we seldom offer.  Open to the general public.  Tasting times: 2pm and 4pm. Reservations suggested.
