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 >

Merry Spritzmas!!

The holiday season is typically the time of year where we choose to offer thanks and praise to those who provide us with our year-round services.  Whether it be a personal friendship, a business relationship, or someone you barely know but have a common bond together that you would like to acknowledge, a small gesture of thoughtfulness will go a long way and be greatly appreciated in the New Year to come.  Remaining true to our gift giving philosophy that you should give gifts that you can be joyfully consumed, Advanced Sommelier Jenny Benzie offers a list of creative, spritzful suggestions that will not only make a splash with everyone on your list this year, but also not exceed your bubbly budget. A CHRISTMAS COCKTAIL TO REMEMBER Everything about Aperol is unique.  Its vibrant color, the bright flavor, the festive spirit it evokes – especially this time of year.  No wonder drinking an Aperol Spritz has been the rage this year! The...Read More >

What To Pair with Your Nantucket Catch of the Day?

One of the many benefits of living on the pristine island of Nantucket is that you are completely surrounded by water. In every direction you turn, almost all roads lead to a serene sandy beach. Because of this, islanders have adapted to becoming resilient during the dreadful winter Nor’Easter storms, working to become as sustainable as possible to preserve the peace and tranquility of our island home, and being stewards of the ocean waters that surround us. There is a sense of peace and serenity of being on the water and that is an enormous draw not only for locals, but also for those who make their annual pilgrimage to the island. The ocean provides us with a bounty of nourishment to our souls and to our bellies. What better way to experience all that Mother Ocean has to offer than by experiencing the fun, excitement and delight of a day fishing charter off the coast of the Grey Lady....Read More >

Grower Champagnes: Who is Your Champagne Farmer?

The holiday season is here (hooray!) and that means a plethora of social gatherings, along with the obligatory gift giving. The challenge of this time of year is how to make holiday parties a little more festive (read: exciting and actually fun) and your presents unique (read: unforgettable).   No need to stress about any of this as adding a bottle of sparkling wine to the equation is always an excellent idea. However, let’s kick it up a notch from there. You buy your eggs from Boat Yard Farm, you get your carrots from Moors End Farm and you pick your own tomatoes at Bartlett Farm. Why not purchase, partake and give a little “Farmer Fizz” to showcase some quality producer grown and made Champagne along with supporting your local Champagne farmer? Known more commonly as Grower Champagne, these festive bottles of bubbly originate from the Champagne region of France as the name implies. What makes them stand out from mass...Read More >
