A featured Point B luxury vacation rental, 44 North Water Street, was host to three wine dinners, including opening night. Vintner Peter Merriam, whose wines bear his name, was himself pouring and talking about his wines.

Who knew this boutique wine producer based in Sonoma County’s Russian River area, is actually a New Englander, who now lives on the north shore of Massachusetts, from where he divides his time bi-coastally.
