Knight LIGHTS of Nantucket

For anyone arriving on Nantucket via the ferry, one of most iconic and picturesque scenes you will see as you come into the Nantucket harbor is also one of the island’s most recognizable structures.   Nantucket is home to not one, but three lighthouses, and this is what you will see when first arriving to island on a boat. Lighthouses are an essential part of maritime navigation at sea or with inland waterways. For Nantucket, this means making your way through the Grey Lady fog and avoiding the dangerous shoals off the coast. The US Bureau of Lighthouses was created by Congress in 1789 but today lighthouses fall under the United States Coast Guard. Once widely used, the number of operational lighthouses that are monitored by actual personnel has declined due to the expense of maintenance and also the use of electronic navigational systems. While it is safe to say that getting to see all three of the Grey Lady’s lighthouses...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 >
