Fall Oyster Crawl 2019

Fall Oyster Crawl collage

Come experience the Fall Oyster Crawl and you too will agree that “Virginia is for Lovers”… of wine and oysters!

Join the wineries of the Chesapeake Bay Wine Trail for our 7th Annual Fall Oyster Crawl on Saturday & Sunday, November 9th and 10th, 2019! Virginia is quickly becoming known as the “Oyster Capital of the East Coast” and November has been named “Virginia Oyster Month.” A great way to enjoy the experience is with local wines & oyster pairings along the Chesapeake Bay Wine Trail – voted one of the top wine trails in Virginia by the readers of Savor Virginia Magazine.

We are pleased to welcome our newest member winery, Rivah Vineyards at the Grove. Rivah Vineyards will participate in the Fall Oyster Crawl on Saturday, Nov. 9. They will be open on a regular basis starting on Nov. 23.

Each participating winery will be offering one or more delicious oyster dishes to pair with its wines. Several wineries will also feature live music.

Tickets are not required for this event. Normal wine tasting fees will apply at each winery and oysters will be available for purchase at market rates. Wines will be available by the glass or bottle. Our limited-edition Tasting Pass will be accepted at our member wineries during the Crawl.

(Please note: This event takes place at individual wineries throughout the Trail. Event hours may vary by winery.)
