Welcome to Puppy Drum! We are a crazy mix of vineyard, market, and bistro activities. We are Cal and Lisa Hagan and have a pair of intertwined businesses. We are veteran owned (vineyard) and woman owned (market/bistro) business activities located on Virginia’s beautiful Eastern Shore in Exmore near the sleepy village of Silver Beach. We hold in high regard the value of the ecology and health of all our surroundings here on the Eastern Shore of Virginia (ESVA), most especially the Chesapeake Bay. We hold these values foremost in how we approach our entire operation.
For the wine aficionado, we offer a working, growing vineyard. As we grow we will offer vineyard tours and tastings. Although small, we have three varietals: Norton, Chardonnay, and Riesling. Given that we are only in our second year of growth, our intent is to bring in Virginia made wines for sell (others too!) and tastings.
Puppy Drum Market and restaurant bistro are now open. Visit us! We will provide hot and cold sandwiches, frozen smoothies, Ice and other camp supplies, and basic food products.
ECO tours: We are currently planning to offer ECO tours by kayak in and around the Chesapeake Bay near the Occohannock Neck. We have a Certified ECO Tour Guide on-site. Kayak tours are being planned for Nassawadox Creek and Occohannock Creek. We are also planning a walking tour of our vineyard. On these tours you will have a chance to see protected wildlife species, such as eagles, ospreys, and many others in their natural habitat. All tours start and end at the Puppy Drum Market in Jamesville. Picnic lunches may be purchased from our Bistro.
Create a symbiotic business set that crosses vineyard production, market/bistro services with respect for our local ecology here on the Occohannock Neck and Chesapeake Bay..
