Oyster Festival

Our 2018 Spring Oyster Festival is now set for Saturday, April 21, 2018. It's an 'R' month after all, so we're hosting our Oyster Festival from noon to 6 PM.

We'll have oysters - half shell, steamed, and/or grilled from our friends at Nomini Bay Oyster Farm, fresh grilled crabcakes and more food options too, The Bennie Dodd Band will be laying down their rockin' hotlicks all afternoon (always a fave) - 1 PM start. We will also have nice local snack foods available - baguettes, cheese, sausage, chocolates and more. Out back the fall color will be coming alive, and the red grapes will be ripening on the vines - a gorgeous time to come out for some fun.

Several great DuCard white wines will be featured too: the new vintage of 'Cuvee 719' wine - tart, sauvignon blanc type character, great with oysters and crab, and of course our Signature Vioginer - honeysuckle, peach and more, also a great seafood match and a Gold Medal winner in Virginia's Governor's Cup competition.

Our friends at Charlottesville Wine & Country published a great blog post about last fall's DuCard Oyster Fest (thanks, guys). Read it here
