Early Mountain brings back the oysters


Early Mountain Vineyard‘s popular Oyster Festival will return for its annual spring appearance on Saturday, March 4, and Sunday, March 5, with the perfect pairing of Virginia wines and oysters from the award-winning Rappahannock Oyster Company.

In addition to raw and grilled oysters,  Early Mountain’s Executive Chef Ryan Collins will provide a seasonal menu featuring fried chicken and warm chowder. There will also be live entertainment.

The festival will be held from 12 noon to 4 p m. each day. Daily admission tickets includes entry to the festival, an Early Mountain wine tasting and a stemless wine glass as a take home gift. All food items will be sold à la carte.

Guests can also order more wine from Early Mountain’s extensive list of Virginia wines – both from its own vineyard as well as others that have been hand-selected from across the state – available by the glass and bottle.

The festival tickets are priced at $15 for adults aged 21 and older and $5 for those under the age of 21. They are available online while supplies last.
