Seaside Sips for Summer

Only five Fridays left until Labor Day Weekend.  Makes you think about what remains on your Nantucket To-Do Summer Bucket List.  You mapped it out at the beginning of season, but your busy social schedule, kids at camp and weekly houseguests got the best of you and your precious time spent here on the island.   Time to regroup, reassess and refresh your priorities before summer ends.  What better way to do that than with a lovely glass of rosé in hand to toast the next adventures and amazing memories you will be creating by the waters of our fair isle. While spending the day on the sand has its glorious moments, there is something to be said about the calm and stillness of enjoying the water in Nantucket Harbor.  This extends well past where the Hy-Line Ferry and visiting boats dock close to town. A drive out to Monomoy, Polpis or the Wauwinet area will keep you on the...Read More >

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. No matter your genre of choice in film, Advanced Sommelier Jenny Benzie gives us a brief insight into a handful of movies being featured this festival weekend, along with a beautiful rosé wine for the perfect match.  A BEAUTIFUL DAY IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD Many of generations have...Read More >

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. Who says any of this has to end now that we are into fall? Definitely not us on this end! As the sun begins to set a little sooner in the evening and the night air becomes crisp and worthy of your favorite cozy zip sweatshirt, now is the time to start the transition to fall weather drinking rosés that offer a little more substance than your light and easy-drinking summer sipper. Famille Perrin, Ventoux Rosé 2016 The Perrin family has been producing wine in the Southern Rhône Valley for generations. Their winery is located outside the commune of Orange, north of the more well-known city of Avignon in southeastern...Read More >

You Had Me At Rosé: Pour Me Another

Drinking rosé has become all the craze as of late. “Rosé all day” and “Yes way rosé” are just a couple of this summer’s pink drinking ad campaigns. While children wait in line for their special treat at The Juice Bar, their parents are making a quick stop at their favorite wine store to pick up more pink juice for themselves to enjoy as soon as they are able. The usual rosé suspects never seem to fail vintage to vintage, but there are a lot more options out there just waiting to be discovered. Venture off the usual rosé wine route, just as you would the sandy back roads of Nantucket, and you will be pleasantly surprised by what you might discover. IBY Blaufrankisch, Mittelburgenland, Austria 2016 Pronounced ee-bee, this small family owned winery from Austria is located in the center of the Mittelburgenland wine region about an hour south of Vienna. This area is known more for its racy...Read More >
