Wine and Oyster Pairing – January 27, 2021

$ 59.00$ 128.00

Indulge in a “to go” celebration of wine and oyster deliciousness!

Covid may have knocked out our on-site events, but we can’t wait any longer to enjoy some wine and food pairings, so we’ve worked with Captain Jack’s Shellfish Company to put together an awesome “to go” pairing pack of wine and oysters! Captain Jack’s provided oysters for our pairing events for the last two years, and everyone who attended knows Jack’s selects only the best, freshest oysters.

For the wine, we are doing a special offering of three of our sparkling wines in 8 oz cans (2018 Rainfall, 2018 Darkstar, and 2015 The Kraken). Normally these wines are only available by the bottle, but we are providing them in 8 oz cans specifically for this event so that you can enjoy all three without having to take three full-size bottles.

For the oysters, we are offering three different kinds (Malpeque, Bluepoint, and Kumiai) per dozen (four each), along with three different, paired accompaniments so you can enjoy them both raw and “dressed”. Full menu list and recommended pairings are below. The oysters will be in shell, and we will provide a shucking knife for you to do your own shucking at home.  If you haven’t done it before, there are a lot of videos out there on the interwebs. Accompaniments will be provided in deli cups for you to dress the oysters as you like.

We will also be hosting a Zoom presentation at 7 pm with our winemaker, Eric Van Drunen (Echo), who will be describing the wines and presenting the pairings – along with indulging in the wines and oysters himself!

Note that if you would rather enjoy your oyster and wine feast another night, the oysters will keep in the refrigerator for a few days.

One order includes the wine (3 x 8 oz cans – about as much as a regular bottle), shucking knife, and your choice of 1, 2, 3 or 4 dozen oysters (with accompaniments), so you can choose your wine/oyster enjoyment ratio! Changing the option only changes the amount of oysters, not the amount of wine – for more wine, add more orders.

Another event bonus – everyone who places an order will receive a special coupon code worth 10% off our paired wines the day of the event!

As always, Wine Club members receive 20% off their order! If you aren’t a member of our Wine Club, you can join now online and reap the savings.
