Drinking IN Nantucket’s Indian Summer

Nantucket is breathing a huge sigh of relief these days.  As the fast and furious summer chapter on island will soon close, the door to the illustrious autumn begins to open. The sun begins to set a little earlier, although no less spectacular of a stunning colorful escapade, and the temperature begins to gracefully fall, reminding us to carry an extra layer for warmth and comfort just in case. Now is the perfect time to drink in some of the beauties that the Grey Lady has to offer, sans the hustle and bustle of the summer season, and with an apropos pairing to highlight the experience.

Sparkling Sensations

This weekend on Nantucket is a significant marker for many that summertime is soon expiring.  The Boston Pops on Nantucket concert is the largest and most popular summer event on the island, attracting thousands of music lovers to Jetties Beach for a night of spectacular entertainment – all to raise critical funds for our local Nantucket Cottage Hospital.  This year’s perfect pairing with the orchestra is RAIN – A Tribute to the Beatles, which is named in reference to the song as the B-Side of the “Paper Writer” single. They give audiences the experience of seeing Beatles’ songs live and recreating iconic Beatles moments.   Whether you are attending this musical revue, or have other plans for this iconic weekend, there is plenty to celebrate about life on Nantucket.  Now you, too, can experience a handful of sparkling sensations to toast the last few moments of summer with a little help from your friend Advanced Sommelier Jenny Benzie.

Celebrating American Wines

Not only does Labor Day mark the (unofficial) closing of the summer season, more importantly it is a celebration to honor the working people and the contributions that they have made to our country over the years. Our celebrations often include parades, barbeques and most likely beverages in which to toast those who have paved the way for our country at some point in history to be what it is today. With this in mind, we look at a handful of pioneers in the California wine business who are considered icons in the industry based on the contributions they have made to the trade. ROMANCING THE LAND The Chappellet family’s romance with Pritchard Hill in Napa Valley started more than four decades ago.   When Donn and Molly Chappellet first glimpsed the magnificent view of forests and wildflower-filled meadows from this location, they knew this is where they wanted to be. In 1967, they became the first winery to plant vineyards...Read More >

What better way to embrace this feeling than with music, dancing and fireworks at one of Nantucket’s best beaches. ‘Pops on Nantucket’ is an annual fundraiser, and the largest of its kind, to benefit the Nantucket Cottage Hospital. The funds generated during the event stay on Nantucket and help to sustain the hospital’s year-round commitment to the health and wellbeing of the island community. Well, I’ll drink to that! Here is a quick list of sparkling options to help you celebrate and boogie the night away at this frolicking, fun beachside event.
