Why not stop to Sip (their tasting room) and Slurp (the vineyard’s oyster stand) on your next visit to Irvington?

The Dog and Oyster, vineyard of the Hope and Glory Inn, recently earned five medals at Purdue University’s INDY international wine competition.  The 2018 results were the best ever for the Dog and Oyster: the 2017 vintages of Oyster White (Chardonel), Pearl (Vidal Blanc) and Rosie (a rosé Chardonel) each earned a silver medal, as did the 2014 vintage of Merlot. The 2015 vintage of Shelter Dog Red (Chambourcin) also placed in the competition with a bronze medal.

The vineyard consists of more than six acres of Vinifera and French American Hybrid vines. There are four varieties of grapes:  Chardonel and Vidal Blanc are used for our white wines while Chambourcin and Merlot are our reds. While SLURP’s fresh oysters on the half shell are an early favorite, the roasted oysters served with spicy tarragon butter and French bread are a true delicacy. The regular menu also includes fried oysters, buffalo style fried oysters, a shrimp and oyster po’ boy, a few non-oyster finger foods, and frozen chocolate-covered key lime pie on a stick.

The SLURP menu offers avant-garde and traditional oyster fare, all of which pairs well with Dog and Oyster wines (available daily at SIP, The Dog and Oyster Wine Stand). SLURP is open from noon to 5:00 PM on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. After Memorial Day, SLURP will also be open on Thursdays.

There’s a story about our corkscrews—be sure to ask when you visit.

Perhaps you’ve also wondered about the origin of The Dog and Oyster. The quirky name was created to honor the rescue dogs that reside in the vineyard and keep the grapes safe from deer and other animals, and of course, to honor the oyster, one of the Chesapeake Bay region’s greatest assets.

Our wines were crafted to be paired with oysters—the only vineyard in America doing so. This medal-winning vineyard has garnered three Silver and three Bronze, 2013 and 2014 San Francisco International, America’s #1 Competition; and, four silver and four Bronze, 2014 and 2015 Virginia Governor’s Cup. High marks also come from The Washington Post and the Richmond Times Dispatch wine critics.

The tasting room is open:

April | Thursday-Monday 11AM-5PM
May to October | Daily,  11AM-5PM
Winter | Friday-Sunday, 11AM-5PM
