Winter Warmer Wines

Winter is officially here and sometimes you need more than a warm blanket and a cozy fire to satisfy your soul.  This is where a glass of really, REALLY good red wine comes in handy. Not just your ordinary, average, every day sipper, but one that gives you that warm and fuzzy feeling inside and makes you stop to actually think about the wine because it’s just that delicious.  Advanced Sommelier Jenny Benzie highlights what should be on your winter drinking list this winter and the benefits of keeping warm with each of them. TUSCAN TREASURE Winter may not be the best time to travel to the vineyards of Europe, but it is a great time to either reminisce about the trip you took to Italy last fall during truffle season (!) or plan an upcoming biking trek through the vineyards of Tuscany for the ultimate wine vacation next year.  In the region of Montalcino, the name Brunello is synonymous with some...Read More >

Football & Wine Picks

There are those who live and die by the game of football, and then there are those who enjoy everything else about the game.  Creating new traditions and long-lasting memories by tailgating with friends and family, trying out the latest and greatest of lip-smacking snack food recipes, showing your utmost team spirit by donning your colorful game-day uniform, and ultimately spreading good cheer and being a good sports-person no matter what the outcome of the game. All of this hard work, either by the host providing such an experience or attendees cheering on the game, is sure to draw up a thirst that needs to be quenched.  Advanced Sommelier Jenny Benzie offers us a quick list of “First and Ten” wines that will not only be game day crowd-pleasers, but also leave room in your pocket to do it all over again next weekend! THE AWAY TEAM In the division of West Coast wines from the United States, Washington State is...Read More >

Seaside Sips for Summer

Only five Fridays left until Labor Day Weekend.  Makes you think about what remains on your Nantucket To-Do Summer Bucket List.  You mapped it out at the beginning of season, but your busy social schedule, kids at camp and weekly houseguests got the best of you and your precious time spent here on the island.   Time to regroup, reassess and refresh your priorities before summer ends.  What better way to do that than with a lovely glass of rosé in hand to toast the next adventures and amazing memories you will be creating by the waters of our fair isle. While spending the day on the sand has its glorious moments, there is something to be said about the calm and stillness of enjoying the water in Nantucket Harbor.  This extends well past where the Hy-Line Ferry and visiting boats dock close to town. A drive out to Monomoy, Polpis or the Wauwinet area will keep you on the...Read More >

Knight LIGHTS of Nantucket

For anyone arriving on Nantucket via the ferry, one of most iconic and picturesque scenes you will see as you come into the Nantucket harbor is also one of the island’s most recognizable structures.   Nantucket is home to not one, but three lighthouses, and this is what you will see when first arriving to island on a boat. Lighthouses are an essential part of maritime navigation at sea or with inland waterways. For Nantucket, this means making your way through the Grey Lady fog and avoiding the dangerous shoals off the coast. The US Bureau of Lighthouses was created by Congress in 1789 but today lighthouses fall under the United States Coast Guard. Once widely used, the number of operational lighthouses that are monitored by actual personnel has declined due to the expense of maintenance and also the use of electronic navigational systems. While it is safe to say that getting to see all three of the Grey Lady’s lighthouses...Read More >
