Esprit du Summer Wines

Summertime is synonymous with Sauvignon Blanc. No other wine screams “drink me” on a hot summer day as a relief to the scorching heat more than this racy, acidic white wine that is full of fresh fruit, minerality and a lively finish. With so many different styles from regions across the world to choose from, it can be hard to decide which one you would work best for you. Advanced Sommelier Jenny Benzie will guide you through a handful of selections for you to learn more where each wine comes from and what makes them stand out in a sea of Sauvignon Blanc options.

While some of these sights may be more welcome than others, they all mean that the summer season – and warm, sunny beach days finally – are just around the corner. Nantucket Book Festival, which celebrates an extraordinary list of accomplished and debut authors amidst the history and beauty of Nantucket in its 7th year, is a much anticipated island season opener. Here is a short list featuring a...Read More >
