Cory recently joined the team at Pearmund Cellars as Assistant Manager. She and her family live in Warrenton, VA.
She comes from a big Italian family. Her Grandpa made wine on an old fashioned wine press. And her family owned a restaurant in upstate New York. Everything about Cory screams “Born to work at Pearmund Cellars!”
Admittedly, our new Assistant Manager took a rather circuitous route to get here. A former law enforcement officer, Cory has also worked for the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Justice, and with adults with developmental disabilities.
“My favorite memory of making wine at Grandpa’s was when the wine was ready to be tasted. We’d all bring a dish to pass and make a big celebration out of the ‘release,’ which I guess looking back, was a little sweet. Wine is very special to me. I want to learn as much as I can and maybe be another ‘Chris Pearmund’ when I grow up! I am thrilled to be working at the Best Winery in Virginia!”
