Nantucket Wine Festival
A ferry ride and a world away from the mainland is the historic island of Nantucket -- and in May one of the best wine festivals around. You’ll see and be seen at the many festival events -- not to mention taste some delicious and complex wines and fabulous gourmet food. There are auctions to buy wine and symposia to learn more about wine, all on stunning, scenic Nantucket. Most local businesses participate in some way, and regional food producers come to showcase their delicious products: we suggest seeking out the Island Creek Oyster guys for some oysters on the half shell to go with your chardonnay sampling.
