Our Spring Oyster Festival is set for Saturday, April 22, 2017. It's an 'R' month after all, so we're hosting our Oyster Festival from noon to 5 PM.
We'll have oysters and (world's best) crabcakes from Rappahannock River Oyster Company, music on the patio by the fabulous Bennie Dodd Band (big fun) - 1 PM start. We will also have nice local snack foods available - baguettes, cheese, sausage, chocolates and more. Out back the redbuds and dogwoods will be in bloom, and we will be right at 'bud break' so the vineyard will just be coming alive for the season - a gorgeous time to come out for some fun.
Several great DuCard white wines will be featured too: we are holding some of our otherwise sold out 'Cuvee 719' wine - tart, sauvignon blanc type character, great with oysters and crab - for the event, and will have our Signature Vioginer - honeysuckle, peach and more, also a great seafood match - as well as our Gibson Hollow White and 2nd Corps semi-sweet patio sippers.
Advance tickets are $10 per person, $15 at the door. Admission includes a DuCard logo wine glass for you to use (!!) and take home. Wine and wine tastings available separately and not included with entry ticket
