Make your ferry reservations now for the upcoming Nantucket Wine Festival. Now in its 7th year, the festival plays host to some of the major movers and shakers of the wine, food, and restaurant scenes from both near and far. Over the course of the six-day long event (May 13th-18th), guests can take part in cooking demonstrations with their favorite cookbook authors and chefs, attend seminars with award winning sommeliers and vintners or indulge their palates with food and wine tastings from some of the best chefs from on-island and off.
