Do you remember being told that an apple a day will keep the doctor away? This proverbial piece of advice came on the scene 150 years ago and is a simple claim that enjoying fruits and vegetables promotes health. There are also certain antioxidants in red wine that may help prevent coronary heart disease and heart attacks. It is for both of these reasons that it would be good for you all around to come over to Nantucket for the 2017 Wine & Food Festival!
The Nantucket Food & Wine Festival has been going strong for 21 years and is one of most popular and anticipated food and wine events in the country.
