Rosé After Labor Day: After Summer Sippers

DRINK PINK FOR THE HOLIDAYS Rosé isn’t just about warm sultry summer days on sunny beaches anymore. Also sometimes referred to as ‘Nantucket Water,’ this refreshing category of wine, as an alternative to red or white, has become part of the glamorous lifestyle associated with life on our magical island. Who says any of this has to end now that we are into fall? Definitely not us on this end! As the sun begins to set a little sooner in the evening and the night air becomes crisp and worthy of your favorite cozy zip sweatshirt, now is the time to start the transition to fall weather drinking rosés that offer a little more substance than your light and easy-drinking summer sipper. Famille Perrin, Ventoux Rosé 2016 The Perrin family has been producing wine in the Southern Rhône Valley for generations. Their winery is located outside the commune of Orange, north of the more well-known city of Avignon in southeastern...Read More >

50 Shades of Rosé Recap

50 SHADES OF ROSÉ – NANTUCKET CULINARY CENTER – JUNE 20TH We kicked off the 1st Day of Summer 2016 with our “50 Shades of Rosé” Wine Tasting Event at Nantucket Culinary Center. We take pride in our Rosé selection at Épernay Wine & Spirits. We have the largest selection on island of that favorite PINK sip of summer! The event took us around the world as we explored almost 50 rosés from across the globe. The event was in partnership with Nantucket Culinary Center and Bespoke Events & Party Provisioning. The beautiful blooms were designed by Soiree Floral and Chef Greg Margolis created a delicious spread of passed appetizers and cheese plates to compliment the Rosés. As part of the event, guests were given pink tickets in order to vote for their favorites and the results are in! Tied for #1 are Domaines Ott* “Château Romassan” Bandol 2015 and Château Saint Marguerite “Symphony” Côtes de Provence 2015 Domaines Ott* “Château Romassan” Bandol 2015 – The...Read More >

Sipping & Sailing

BASICS OF THE DRINK: SIP + SAIL TERMS TO LIVE BY While there is a comprehensive (and somewhat exhausting) list of technical tasting terms that can be used to describe wines, this can be overwhelming to a beginner who just wants to enjoy the social aspects of sipping wine and rubbing elbows on the mega yacht down on the waterfront If you are just learning how to properly taste wine and describe what you are tasting with others, this quick reference guide of beginner wine terms will provide a helpful overview of words that make it simple to be on the same language (even if you have had a few sips already). In honor of the Nantucket sailing season beginning this last weekend for Memorial Day, we thought it be fun to compare some basic sailing terms with your wine drinking vocabulary. To start, think of your palate (as in your appreciation for taste and flavor) as a sailing vessel...Read More >
