Attending the Nantucket Wine & Food Festival this year? We invite you to call Greydon House your island headquarters for the event, one of the cultural highlights of the Grey Lady’s year and certainly a must-attend for any and all epicures.
The 2019 Nantucket Wine & Food Festival
This year’s celebration marks the 23rd annual Nantucket Wine & Food Festival, which’ll be taking place May 15th through the 19th. As usual, chefs, sommeliers, winemakers, and other culinary artisans from across the country and around the world will be taking part in this widely acclaimed gastronomic bash.
Festival luminaries this year include Chef Karen Akunowicz of Boston’s Fox & the Knife restaurant, winemaker Rajat Parr of Evening Land Vineyards in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, Chef Gerald Sombright of Tesuro on Florida’s Marco Island, winemaker Molly Hill of Napa Valley’s Sequoia Grove Winery, and New York Times chief wine critic Eric Asimov, to name but a few participants.
Among the many restaurants taking part in the Nantucket Wine & Food Festival are a number of local island eateries, including the Brant Point Grill, Cru, The Sea Grille, and our very own Greydon House restaurant (not to toot our own horn, but…). They’ll be rubbing shoulders with other establishments from near and far, plus a tremendous spectrum of American and international wineries of the finest caliber.
Highlights of the Nantucket Wine & Food Festival
The five days of the 2019 Nantucket Wine & Food Festival come stacked with happenings that add up to a gourmet’s dream come true, from wine and whiskey tastings to culinary seminars, cooking demos, and sundry epicurean soirees. The festival’s Grand Tastings and the Harbor Gala, both held at the White Elephant, help anchor the proceedings. Other fun events on tap include the multiple yoga/mindful-cooking sessions of “Namaste Then Rosé” and the shellfish smorgasbord of the “Shuck It! Oyster Bash” at 11 AM on May 19th on the White Elephant Village Lawn.
