This Saturday, April 27, from 12-5 PM, DuCard Vineyards will hold their Oyster Festival! It’s an R month so oysters are in season. The Rappahannock River Oyster Company will be on site with oysters on the half shell, steamed oysters, crab cakes and other related delectable’s for purchase. We think they all pair well with DuCard’s Signature Viognier and Gibson Hollow White, but you’ll need to decide for yourself! Live music will also be provided by the very talented group, Trius — a fun afternoon ‘in the country.’ The price is $10 per person in advance – click here for tickets – or $15 at the door. Each ticket includes a souvenir DuCard wine glass and choice of wine tasting, or your first glass of wine. There is no charge for children/adults under 21.
Just in case you’re not familiar with this wonderful Virginia Vineyard, DuCard is nestled at the base of the beautiful blue ridge mountains, on the eastern edge of Shenadoah National Park. From there you can admire soaring Old Rag Mountain and White Oak Canyon. DuCard offers a gorgeous tasting room and strive’s to respect the environment and support local businesses in everything they do.
