Watch Hill

White-shelled Watch Hills are grown off-bottom in waist-deep water on a five-acre lease in Winnapaug Pond, near Westerly. They are unusual for being mild in salinity but full-bodied, with strong “oysterness” and an addictive sweet-butter flavor that is especially apparent in winter. That combination makes them perhaps the best virginica with wine.
