Nantucket Bucket List Pairings

The most wonderful time of the year on Nantucket has arrived, and that means there is a lot to accomplish in the next few weeks.  Restaurant week will soon be approaching to leisurely enjoy a repast at your favorite local dining establishment without the crowds.  You look forward to hosting a festive cocktail party to celebrate and spend time with your friends and neighbors that you haven’t really seen much in the past few months.  Before us is an opportunity to enjoy some of the finer things in life that our fair isle has to give in the last few weeks of summer. Advanced Sommelier Jenny Benzie offers a handful of perfect pairings for island indulgence as a reward for making it to other side of summer and into the next season.

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.

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 >

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.

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.
