Champagne & Oysters at Weekapaug Inn and In The Cellar: Oysters & The Spirits, Beers & Wine That Love Them at Ocean House
There are two opportunities to choose from to experience oysters paired with champagne. At the Weekapaug Inn where the salt ponds along the coast are home to a dozen oyster farms. During this event, sample a variety of shucked oysters and try your own hand at shucking. Enjoy oyster appetizers alongside hand-picked wine pairings and discuss why certain wines pair well with these delectable mollusks. Our naturalist will also be on hand to discuss the natural and human history of the native oyster and describe how they are produced today. At Ocean House’s In The Cellar series, join the OH Culinary Experts along with their Sommelier in the Center for Wine & Culinary Arts to explore the symphonic world of food and beverage.
