If your bucket list, like mine, is full of Champagne, lobsters and Alsatian wine, this festival is for you.

It will take place on Martha´s Vineyard and will give you the opportunity to meet the people who are involved with fishing, culinary and fun on the island,

Chef demos will include celebrity chefs and wine pairings
Best of all, a portion of the proceeds support two local organizations who are actively supporting learning, the Island Grown Schools, and farming, the Agricultural Society´s Farmers Program.

This event is celebrating its 10th successful year.   Next year, I really have to go. If you are able to go, I highly recommend getting your ticket now.  Lots of the small amazing dinners and pop ups are selling out.  The Grand Tasting sounds like an amazing way to get a flavor of island living with a convivial company and dramatic scenery.

You can taste and sip on the Great Lawn of the Harbor View Hotel.  Three hundred winemakers, spirits, breweries, gourmet foods, and restaurants will sample their wares against the background of an amazing Vineyard shoreline. 


There will be great wines from all over the world.  Two of my favorites are representing.  Gosset Champagne.  You can see some notes on this fizzy elixir at Wine Harlots . Let's face it, literally everything is better with Champagne.  The Gosset tasting experience lets you float on a cloud of real Champagne as well as have knowledge deftly imparted

Another producer that is simply divine is Trimbach.  They have been making wine since 1626 in the region of Alsace.  Perfect conditions, skill and history conspire to make this region known for consistently excellent wines.  Wine Folly explains it all if this region is new to you.

The 12th generation winemaker, Jean Trimbach will lead lucky diners through a tasting to arguably the best dry Rieslings in the world. Data point: this wine is on all the 3 Star Michelin wine lists. Tickets for this amazing event are here

Another super fun event is LobsterPalooza.  I can resist neither a lobster roll nor a palooza.  But alas, bad planning left me unable to swizzle my schedule to attend.

The full list of events is here: Click at your own risk as these will make you swoon,  Sake and Oysters? Salumi?
