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 >

BONUS Wine Fest Excursions to Explore

BONUS WINE FEST EXCURSIONS TO EXPLORE With so many activities to choose from during Nantucket Wine Fest weekend, it is sometimes hard to narrow down your choices as to what events to attend. Pre-planning your weekend to best allocate your time is wise in order to maximize your total wine exposure. Here are a few highlights (and helpful hints) to ensure you make the most of it without overwhelming yourself or missing out on must-attend tastings. LUMINARIES POSING AS SOMMELIERS – THE FRIDAY NIGHT HUSSLE These distinguished luminaries may not be working floor Sommeliers in the real world, but they get to play the role during Wine Fest weekend on Nantucket! In order to add a little twist of the corkscrew to this weekend’s festivities, Proprietors Bar & Table, located in the heart of Nantucket’s downtown on India Street, annually invites a few of their wine friends to lend a hand during dinner service. There happen to be two honorees...Read More >

What TO DRINK When you get TO-GO

WHAT YOU SHOULD BE DRINKING WITH YOUR TO-GO Productivity. Making the most of your day. The same is true whether putting time in at the dreary office or (even better) on the beautiful sandy beaches of Nantucket. While you may have your list of ACKtivities to accomplish while on here on island, you also want to make sure you get the most out of your planned relaxation time as well. The sun is brightly shining, not a whisper of a cloud in the sky and the last thing you want to do is concern yourself with taking precious time out of your day to fight the traffic and crowds at the market, much less prepare or cook food, when you could be at the beach. Fortunately, Nantucket has an abundance of fabulous eateries that offer you tasty options without actually having to dine at a restaurant. And what better way to enjoy this take-out food than with the perfect wine...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 >
