reports, and wire, Tribune-Review/Pittsburgh Tribune-Review


Over the past 11 years, the Nantucket Wine Festival has become one of the country's most celebrated and prestigious wine and food events. This year's festival will take place May 14 through18 and be attended by world-renowned winemakers, chefs and celebrities.

Highlights include "The Stag's Leap Story," featuring seven vintners from the Stag's Leap Vintners Alliance; "East Side Story," an event represented by five of the greatest California winemakers from Napa Valley's east side, and presentation of the first Nantucket Wine Luminary of the Year award.

The festival's signature event, the Grand Tasting, will be held for the second year at the historic Nantucket Yacht Club on the Massachusetts island. The White Elephant Hotel on Nantucket Harbor serves as the festival's home base and hosts many of the events, including The Charity Gala, The Celebrity Chef and Winemaker Auction Dinner and the majority of the wine & food seminars. Events are also held at locations throughout the island, including restaurants and private homes.
