We stopped for a chilled bottle of Pearl white wine paired with fried oyster tacos tacos and fried green tomatoes Wow. Eating under an umbrella in the vineyard. This is summertime living in the Northern neck of Virginia. Not to be missed.

The oysters lured me in...had never had a wine & oyster pairing. What fun! The wines are okay and the oysters were great. It was fun to do something different than other winery visits. The rescue or shelter dogs are sweet, they help keep the deer away from the vineyard grapes and have a nice place to romp and play.... More

Dog and Oyster Vineyard was outstanding. From the OVERSIZED cork screws at the entry point to the wonderful outdoor lounge area, it was a great winery visit. We will go back! There was a catering business there cooking fresh seafood (they are there on weekends) AWESOME soft shell crab bites and oyster tacos. The wines were good. The whole experience... More

We try to visit the Dog & Oyster once a year, since we love our wine & oysters! They have some new wines since our last visit, and they all were good. Our favorite wine of the tasting was Pearl, a nice Sauvignon Blanc, which we bought a bottle of to pair with our oysters! They also had soft shell... More

A totally chilled out, really quirky and beautiful place! Really relaxed and laid back feel. Beautiful open field surrounded by vineyards and near to the water and a tucked away small beach. As the name suggests, lots of dogs on the property, but they are contained and we were allowed to bring our well behaved dog in with us. The... More

Loved the grilled oysters. It was my first time eating them. I think I liked them so much because they had a special pesto sauce on them. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff.

Super low-key vineyard with laid back owner...no uptight stuff here. Great wines and fun photo-ops with the GIANT corkscrews, tractor, dogs and CHARMING salesman son! Hunters "bottletags" made from oyster shells and rope are must-have add ons. I wish oysters were an option the day we visited... but the wines were fine despite the lack of shellfish.

This vineyard is managed and co-owned by Mark Hollingsworth, the son of the Hope and Glory owners in town. We drove in Sunday afternoon and had the pleasure of conversing with Mark who is very knowledgeable of the wine business. Five wines were sampled for just $7--three whites and two reds today. All were very pleasant! Mark took much time... More

We saw the huge cork screws at the entrance and had to check it out. The wines were good and the owners son was very friendly and helpful with area attractions
