We offer much more than an Irvington bed and breakfast. We also own a lovely, inviting, dog-friendly vineyard that’s only 3/10 of a mile away from the inn. You can walk or bike there for exquisite wine tastings as well as seasonal snacks that feature fresh, local oysters and pair perfectly with our wines. It’s one of only three places in the world where grapes grow next to waters where oysters are grown, resulting in the terroir of the grape to be the same as the merroir of the oyster.
