Tim and the rest of the Gorman’s over at Cardinal Point Vineyard & Winery are smiling big! Their 5th annual Oyster Roast went off without a hitch, with over 600 people the very first day! For those of you who are regulars each year, you know the Rain or Temperature Gods sometimes haven’t been the most agreeable at the highly popular event!

But not this year! Clear skies and mild temperatures provided a great setting for the Nelson County, Virginia event in Afton.

The guys from Rappahannock River Oysters were back doing their thing! Yummy!
