Wine & Oyster Fair-- April 13, 2019
On April 13, 2019, the Tidewater Oyster Gardeners Association (TOGA) and the Good Luck Cellars Winery will again team up to sponsor a wine and oyster event at the beautiful winery location on 1025 Good Luck Road, Kilmarnock, Virginia. This fair begins at noon and goes until 4PM. At the TOGA tent you will be able to get one-on-one attention for your oyster gardening questions, best practices or concerns, plus see an excellent demonstration on "Oyster Shucking.” There will be oyster seed, both diploid and triploid, along with various oyster cages, apparel and accessories for sale.
For those wishing to learn more on oyster gardening, there will be a panel discussion in the Good Luck Hall, hosted by many experienced MOGs (Master Oyster Gardeners). It is a lovely place to listen and have fun with folks of like mind who wish to grow their own yummy bivalves.
TOGA will also have a raffle booth where choice items will find homes with many lucky winners of the day. All proceeds go to TOGA, a most worthy non-profit organization.
The event will include different delicious choices of raw and cooked oysters from a local grower, Great Wicomico Oyster Co., and there will be fine wines to taste and buy from the winery.
For the full vineyard experience, people will be able to visit the comfortable Good Luck wine tasting bar and lounge where knowledgeable and friendly servers will keep pace with any crowd. Favorite bottles can be purchased and brought out onto the large covered veranda with many tables overlooking the fair fun. The public is invited to join in on this festive activity. Free admission and plenty of parking.
