This Virginia Wine and Brine feast is a food and wine lovers dream. Based on the concept that a wine’s taste reflects the region it is grown in, or terroir, this event, held on the grounds of Chatham Vineyards, pairs Chatham Vineyard’s wines with oysters that are cultivated in the waters surrounding the winery. Just as wines are flavored by their region, oysters are also known for developing a distinct flavor, or Merroir, based on where they are grown. The winery perches on Church Creek and is dotted with buildings that date to the early 1800’s. GET TICKETS Space Limited | Advance Reservations Only
