What pairs well with Chesapeake Bay oysters? Virginia wine.
On Sunday, the Chesapeake Bay Foundation will kick off its 10 Billion Oysters partnership at the Brock Environmental Center with an event titled “From Bay to Vine, Oysters and Wine.”
The 10 Billion Oysters partnership is a massive restoration initiative between organizations in Virginia and Maryland, including the CBF.
The event will showcase the unique flavors of oysters harvested from the Bay and its subsidiaries, including the Lynnhaven River. Experts will be available to talk about how location flavors oysters, as well as to offer advice on how to pair the bivalves with wine from the Williamsburg Winery, according to a CBF news release.
Wine won’t be the only alcoholic beverage on the menu. The event will also feature craft beer from Norfolk’s O’Connor Brewing Company.
The event will take place at 3663 Marlin Bay Drive in Virginia Beach from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. To buy tickets, visit the CBF’s website.
