It may not be a rocket launch but the countdown to the Martha’s Vineyard Wine Festival has begun. The festival is underway in less than a week, and where else can you enjoy two types of bouquets: the subtle aroma of a cabernet and a bunch of fresh spring flowers. Homes and businesses on the Island will host everything from an oyster and wine bar to a bottomless Bloody Mary brunch. The festivities begin with a rose reception at Atria on Main street in Edgartown at 2 p.m. on Thursday, May 9, and the party doesn’t end until the last mimosa is finished at Detente on Winter street in Edgartown beginning at 11 a.m. on Sunday, May 12.
This year’s festival benefits the Boys & Girls Club and the Local Wild Food Challenge.
