Beginning May 11 and running through May 14, (Mother’s Day) it will be raining good wine and food on the Island as the MV Wine Fest makes the Vineyard its home again. This is the fifth consecutive year for the event which takes place at venues all over Edgartown.

Everything starts, as it always does, with the art of the cocktail on May 11 beginning at 7 p.m. at a location to be disclosed to ticket holders. During the weekend revelers can take part in an Eco-Awareness Oyster Adventure, A Vintage Affair with Trifecta Wines, Burgers and Bubbles or Barbecues and Brews. The possibilities are nearly endless. The common denominator is good food and drink.
