The quirky name, The Dog and Oyster, was created to honor the rescue dogs that rescue the grapes from deer and other grape lovers; and, to honor the oyster, one of the Chesapeake Bay region's greatest assets. The Dog and Oyster is located just a bike ride away from the highly acclaimed Hope and Glory Inn.

Winegrower Mark Hollingsworth is one of Virginia's rising stars. Mark made wine for the first time with the 2012 harvest and surprised everyone by winning medals from America's #1 competition in San Francisco to the 2014 Virginia's Governor's Cup.

Add to that - Windmill Point Oyster Company offering local oysters paired with our wines crafted to be paired with oysters - the only vineyard in America doing so.

We offer the perfect merroir and terroir with its magical culinary confluence that creates a "sense of place" where two of life's most sought after delicacies on this earth andin the water are influenced by the same set of special characteristics that make them truly harmonious.

Wine tastings and oyster tastings - together.

Admission Fee: $6.00 to $12.00 Wine Tastings
