What an incredible weekend of wine and food on Martha’s Vineyard. From its truly grand, Grand Tasting, to wine dinners, to beer and cocktail competitions, the fourth annual Martha’s Vineyard Wine Fest sold out every event this year.
We were pleased to once again play an active supporting role in this year’s MV Wine Fest, pairing two of our Point B clients and their luxurious homes, with some key wine festival events.
We’d like to thank Point B clients Dudley Cannada and John Connors, for donating their luxurious Edgartown homes on prestigious North Water Street, for seven wine events — five wine dinners, and two morning bubbles plus food events.
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.
With Sauvignon Blanc in hand, the group watched sunset over Edgartown Harbor from the rooftop widow’s walk.
The food was equally compelling. Local Chef, Martin Verano, the Executive Chef at The Boathouse Restaurant, here in Edgartown, cooked, served, and entertained.
And from New Zealand, came the red and white wines of Giesen Vineyards.
Giesen’s Matt Bindel poured the guests a special selection of hard to get wines from this family-run vineyard.
Drawing on a number of local ingredients, Island Chef Gavin Smith offered up some perfectly paired delights.
With the Edgartown Lighthouse and Harbor as its backdrop, 119 North Water Street played host to the Frog’s Leap wine dinner.
Guests also enjoyed the only formal beer dinner of the festival, featuring Peak Organic beers.
The waterfront home is an exclusive Point B Realty sales listing.
Just a little sampling of the flavors and tastes over the four day MV Wine Fest.
Congratulations. Job well done!
