There are many great fall festivals, but one of our local favorites is Cardinal Point Winery’s Oyster Roast. This event is held over a Saturday and Sunday. This year’s is the 12th annual and takes place this coming weekend, November 14th and 15th , 12:00pm – 5:00pm. There is live music, wine, and lots of seafood from Rappahannock River Oyster Co.
Admission is $12 in advance and $17 at the door, and it includes a wine glass and free wine tasting. Wine is available for purchase by the glass or bottle, and there is a variety of food for purchase, as well. Last year the food offerings included raw or steamed oysters (of course!), crab cakes, and seafood stew.
This is a great time of year to be outside – a chill is in the air and the landscape has transformed. If you’ve been meaning to take a trip to Nelson County, come on out and enjoy some local wine and oysters. Maybe we’ll see you there!
