Sun’s Out Rum’s Out

Summer is in full swing and so are the cocktail soirées. Whether you are meeting up with friends who have just arrived on island, après la plage with the family or cocktails and sunset before dinner, there isn’t a lack of excuses to partake and enjoy a refreshing cocktail concoction. Since it is summer and the sun happens to be out, no better time to also bring the rum out! Rum is synonymous with island living. That doesn’t necessarily mean that it has to be an island full of palm trees in order to take advantage of the benefits of rum drinking, but an island that just happens to be surrounded by water with a culture of sun, sand, surf and sometimes a little sailing, fishing or other various watersports. The summertime kick-off Figawi race, held annually on Memorial Day weekend, is a boat race from Hyannis to Nantucket. A prized possession of the top sailors is the distinctive and...Read More >

Rosés for my Beaches

There is no doubt that Nantucket has some of the most beautiful and unspoiled beaches in the world. For those of you who come to visit the Grey Lady and others who live here year-round, there is a comfort knowing that you are surrounded entirely by a sandy coastline that evokes a sense of calmness and serenity not found in other locales. Your favorite spots on the sand deserve a bottle of rosé wine in hand, resulting in the perfect summertime blend. This pairing of these two equally important parts of the equation will create an elevated, memorable experience of your time here on the island. Remember to bring your Govino wine glasses (reusable, recyclable and shatterproof drink ware) and a wine opener with you as you embark on this Nantucket Rosé Roadshow.   The Cheap + Cheerful Route If you happen to arrive on Nantucket via ferry, you have most likely seen the Brant Point Lighthouse that is 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 >
