What Is the Best Destination for Wine Lovers’ Getaways in Virginia?

Let’s cut to the chase: The Hope and Glory Inn is simply the best destination for wine lovers’ getaways in Virginia. Not only does our award-winning and romantic inn provide the utmost luxury for your stay, but it’s also a short walk away from our vineyard. There are only three places in the world that offer the perfect pairing of terroir and merroir, and The Dog and Oyster Vineyard in Irvington, VA, is one of them! Here, we serve wines made with grapes that are grown next to the waters where our delicious oysters are harvested. These fantastic flavors harmonize with one another to create a “sense of place” and an extremely rare, palate-pleasing experience.

The Hope and Glory Inn Is the Best Destination for Wine Lovers’ Getaways in Virginia

Indulge at our Vineyard

When you visit The Dog and Oyster Vineyard, you get to treat your taste buds to an extraordinary experience. Grab a seat at SIP, our wine-tasting porch, to enjoy masterfully crafted wines in a charming atmosphere. Of course, you also need to pair your drinks with the seasonal specials at SLURP, our oyster stand, with food that visitors consistently rave about. Once you try our wine and oysters together, you’ll truly understand what we mean by “pairing perfection.” Not everyone can say that they’ve enjoyed such a rare experience, but you’ll be able to!

Relax at the Inn

As if it couldn’t get any better, you also get to stay at one of the best inns that our area has to offer. The Hope and Glory Inn is a short walk from the vineyard and has received remarkable recognition and adoration from guests and media outlets alike. It’s the ideal place to spark a new romance or reignite an old flame with your fellow wine lover.

After indulging in fresh, local oysters at our vineyard, retreat to our romantic inn, where you’ll find luxurious accommodations and amenities waiting for you. Bring a bottle of wine back with you or grab a drink together in Detention, our on-site bar. You can also take advantage of our private, enclosed garden bath, take a dip in our salt-water pool, or step aboard True Love for a scenic cruise on Carter’s Creek when the weather is warm. Feel free to make reservations for a romantic dinner in The Dining Hall, as well, where Chef Meseret Crockett will delight you with her mastery of the culinary arts in an intimate atmosphere.
