Virginia Oyster and Wine Tour “An Experience 400 Years In The Making”

In this 3 stop tour, see where it all started at the Lynnhaven Bay, talking about the history of oysters, Virginia’s 7 different oyster regions, the Virginia Oyster Trail, and Sensible Seafood at the Virginia Aquarium.

Stop by several award winning area restaurants to sample oysters in various preparations (raw, stewed, fried, rockafeller, etc.) via our executive coach selected by Chef and Food Historian Patrick Evans-Hylton. Guests will receive guided tastings paired expertly with Virginia wines as well as receive regional recipes developed by Patrick himself.
Others do oyster stouts or single events, but we take things to the next level with our East Coast Exclusive 3 stop Guided Local Oyster and Craft Brew Tour!

Virginia Oyster and Craft Brew Tour

Kings and Queens of Europe prized the sweet and subtly buttery Lynnhaven Oyster from Coastal Virginia’s waters. The population declined for years due in part to overharvesting, but efforts by groups like Lynnhaven River Now and responsible harvesting from oystermen like Capt. Chris Ludford of Pleasure House Oysters (as featured inSouthern Living and NY Daily News) have led to a resurgence in the oyster population. On our tour, you’ll visit several award winning area restaurants to sample Virginia oysters in various preparations (raw, stewed, fried, rockafeller, etc.) via our executive coach selected by Chef and Food Historian Patrick Evans-Hylton. Guests will receive guided tastings paired expertly with Virginia craft beers.
