Festival Films and Rosés to Match

Festivals are aplenty in the summertime of Nantucket. Almost every weekend you can find the island full of luminaries and experts of a certain craft, along with budding enthusiasts who wish to meet + greet with the people who have somehow influenced their lives. The Nantucket Film Festival, celebrating its 23rd year, has used Nantucket as its home to promote the cultural awareness and appreciation of the art of screenwriting in the world of cinema. Numerous films have been inspired by or produced on the island. The people of Nantucket have also been open to receiving and viewing independent films that entertain and often times push you to consider important forthright social issues.

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.

Like sand at the beach, it is not all created equal. The color can range from pale cream to golden to caramel when wet, even black sand in a few far out reaches of the earth. The size of the sand varies from soft, finely grained to being course and rough, or perhaps somewhere in between. It is also important to consider the movement of the waves on the beach as in influencer on your beach experience. While it isn’t the sand itself, the soft lapping of the water on the shore or loud crashing of the waves will affect the overall ‘terroir’ aspect of the seaside region. Consider this inequality with Sauvignon Blanc wines that come from different growing climates, varying soil types and diverse production methods. Discover how the flavor profile and styles of this savvy white wine vary based on these influencing factors. A SANCERRE SUBSTITION STAND-OUT  When you think of summer, the seashore and what to...Read More >
