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 >

Cheese, Glorious Cheese!

CHEESE, GLORIOUS CHEESE! Gathering around the large dining room table of your family home on Nantucket, the sharing of good food and perfectly paired wine will be sure to create long-lasting memories of your time spend here on island. Like wine, cheese should be nurtured and matured under proper conditions in order for it to be at its best. Controlling the natural ripeness of cheese under proper conditions, such as airflow and humidity, to achieve complete fermented bliss is called “affinage.” While you may have your favorite go-to cheese, your cheese can be matched to your special occasion. A simple, easy cheese plate for afternoon entertaining, a pre-game gathering before hitting the town or perhaps a late night snack after dancing the night away at the Chicken Box, see this tasty list of suggestions that would be a perfect pairing for your next beach day and beyond! BEWARE OF CHEESE IMPOSTERS The most famous goat cheese of the many varieties produced...Read More >

The Many Savvy Styles of Sauvignon Blanc

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 >
