Come out for Stratford Hall’s Wine and Oyster Festival on Saturday

“What a way to celebrate the first day of fall,” said Jon Bachman, Stratford Hall’s public events manager. 

The 7th Annual Wine and Oyster Festival at Stratford Hall will be held this weekend, beginning Saturday, Sept. 21.  Bachman and the rest of the Stratford Hall team are expecting a smashingly successful event at the historic home of Virginia’s Lee family.

“For two days, the oval at Stratford Hall will be transformed into a festival, celebrating two of Virginia’s finest traditions, oystering and wine production. Featured will be seven of the finest oyster growers in the Chesapeake Bay region and 13 of Virginia’s premium wineries,” Bachman said.

“Joining in the fun will be great food offerings, 48 retail vendors, cooking demonstrations, alpacas and miniature farm animals, colonial chocolate makers, carriage and barrel rides, games, free house tours and much, much more. And don’t forget the wine stomp, and be sure to stop by the operating Grist Mill,” said Bachman.

In addition to the full-flavored Chesapeake Bay and Tidewater oysters and dozens of finely crafted Virginia wines, there will be a wide selection of seafood delicacies available, including dishes made from oysters, clams and shrimp.

Stratford Hall is a 1,900-acre colonial plantation in Westmoreland County off Route 3. It was the home of four generations of the Lee family of Virginia, including two signers of the Declaration of Independence, and it was the birthplace of Civil War General Robert Edward Lee.  

This weekend, for arts-and-crafts’ lovers, there will be dozens of artisans showing their works at the plantation. Kids will love the children’s games, and there will be several demonstrations, as well as wine-education seminars.

Ticket prices for the event are: Wine & Oyster Tickets $40 in advance; $45 the day of event; Wine Taster Tickets $20 in advance, $25 the day of event; Non-drinker Tickets $10; Children’s tickets (ages over 6 and under 13) $5.

 “On Sunday, the Memory Lane Car Club and Battlefield Corvette Club will join in on the fun and will be offering a rare look at nearly a hundred treasured classic cars,” Bachman said. “This is a weekend you can’t pass up. There’s so much to see and do, just down the road at Stratford Hall.”

“See you at the festival,” Bachman said.  “How much fun can a person be allowed to have?”

 Visit the Stratford Hall Wine and Oyster Festival on Sept.21 and 22, and enjoy the wine and oysters.
