Chesapeake Bay Wine Trail-Fall Oyster Crawl

Nov 11, 2017

Join us for a beautiful fall weekend of wine & oyster pairings throughout the Chesapeake Bay Wine Trail. Virginia is quickly becoming known as the “Oyster Capital of the East Coast.” And a great way to enjoy the experience is with local wines & oyster pairings along the Chesapeake Bay Wine Trail – voted the #1 Wine Trail in Eastern VA by the readers of Virginia Living Magazine.

Each winery will offer a distinct oyster and wine paring. Examples from the Spring 2016 Crawl:

Participating wineries:

Athena Vineyards and Winery: Oyster Gumbo
Belle Mount Vineyards: Fried Oysters and Roasted Oysters
Caret Cellars: Oysters Rockefeller on the half shell, topped with a mixture of spinach, water cress, herbs and spices, and topped with cheese, served with Texas Pete and lemon slices. Deep fried oysters served in a boat style tray, with cocktail sauce or ketchup. All cooked on site by Over the Top Catering.
Dog and Oyster Vineyard: Fried Oyster Tacos with sriracha key lime slaw, Raw Oysters with champagne vinegar mignonette, and Roasted Oysters topped with jalapeño pesto or basil pesto. Featuring oysters prepared by Byrd’s Seafood Co.
General’s Ridge Vineyard: Roasted Oysters two ways: Cackalacky (with a mild North Carolina-style hot sauce topped with chopped celery and blue cheese crumbles) and Bienville (with a white wine cream sauce with garlic and shrimp).
Good Luck Cellars: Scalloped Oysters.
Ingleside Vineyards: Oysters on the Half Shell, Fried Oysters and “Denson’s Oysters” (grilled with seasonings and topped with Parmesan cheese), prepared onsite by the R&B Oyster Bar from Densons. PLUS Live music in the courtyard from the Lewis, Sluder,Smith Trio with Special Guests on Sunday, April 24.
Oak Crest Vineyard & Winery: Raw, Steamed and Charbroiled Oysters prepared onsite by Nomini Bay Oyster Ranch.

Normal wine tasting fees will apply at each winery and oysters will be available for sale. (Please note: This event takes place at individual wineries throughout the Trail. Event hours may vary by winery.)
