#AFridayIn: The Nantucket Wine Festival

From sandy beaches to the sophisticated Chateau Angelus wine dinner, GlobalPost gives a colorful and gastronomic tour of Nantucket.

This past Friday, GlobalPost guest writer and resident sommelier, Cathy Huyghe, gave us a behind-the-scenes look at the Nantucket Wine Festival.

Cathy began her day with a refreshing, early morning walk on the beach. From there, she shared a rare taste of famed Chef Damon Baehrel's über-local fare, and her day-long tour concluded at the oh-so-sophisticated Chateau Angelus wine dinner.

When all was said and done, Cathy gave GlobalPost readers and followers a beautiful and inside look at the island of Nantucket —  we learned a little bit about Nantucket history, a lot about the wine business, and for a moment, we were given a remarkable and picturesque reprieve from our otherwise humdrum Fridays at work.

If you missed it live, catch up with Cathy's trip in the tweets below. To see the rest of GlobalPost's adventures, check out our series page and follow along: @AFridayIn.
