We are a group of wine lovers who love sharing the joy of wine with others. We host the classes at Cork & Fork in Gainesville, VA and Washington, DC with the Landragin Team. The classes & tasting events are very user friendly. Come experience a class for yourself!
About the hosts: Owners of Cork & Fork, Dominique and Anna Landragin, are French natives and both were born into, studied, and practiced winemaking. They wanted to share their passion with others -- hence, Cork & Fork was born.
Dominique’s family wine making history dates back to 1772 when his great-great-grandfather first made champagne. Following the family tradition his grandfather managed Champagne Veuve Clicquot vineyards and his father managed Champagne Heidsieck vineyards.
Dominique studied viticulture and oenology at Beaune Agricultural College, Burgundy. He began his career as manager for Champagne Lanson vineyards, and later at Champagne Deutz in Epernay. His dream of winemaking in the New World took his young family to Australia where for 14 years Dominique produced some excellent sparkling wines.
