Nantucket Wine

Nantucket Wine Festival

Nantucket Wine Festival is one of the best reasons to visit this beautiful island in the blooming month of May. If you are not an experienced taster, the Wine Festival will give you an opportunity to learn differences between varietals of wines.

Selection of wine is vast and often times it is almost impossible to give a universal characteristic that is uniquely suited with this noble beverage. Each person who understands differences between wines uses his or her own taste, experience, capabilities and budget in selection of this drink. The selection of wines is infinite, and it is unlikely that there are clear guidelines that separate them according to the year of harvest, the production region, or the degree of compatibility with a particular food.

The grape growing region is probably one of the important factors that should be taken into account when selecting a bottle of wine.  France, Italy, Portugal, Spain, and New Zealand are recognized leaders in the field of wine making. In these countries, the vineyard areas are large and mild climate for growing grapes along with a tradition of many centuries have laid the foundation of art in production of wine.

Created as a charitable foundation, the Nantucket Wine Festival has become the Island’s upscale drink and food event. Think of taking your friends and/or family on a journey to Nantucket, you will indulge in tasting the finest food and beverages from the best restaurants, and get a chance to discover wines of the world’s best wineries from all major wine regions.
