Oyster Festival

Our Spring Oyster Festival is now set for Saturday, April 27, 2019. It's an 'R' month after all, so we're hosting our Oyster Festival from noon to 6 PM.

Nomini Bay Oyster Ranch will be providing the freshest and most delicious oysters from the Northern Neck: raw on the half shell, steamed, grilled, and with toppings. We'll also be offering Rappahannock River crabcakes as always, and more food options too. Throw in music on the patio by Kat and the Travelers with their awesome blend of originals, swing, vintage jazz, blues and boogie (www.katandthetravelers.com) and some beautiful mountain views and you've got it made.

Several great DuCard white wines will be featured too: Chardonnay, the classic pairing for oysters, the latest 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.

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