Less than a five-minute walk will take you over to Beach Street here in Nantucket where you will find a quaint shop called Épernay Wine & Spirits. This is the only Sommelier owned and operated wine + liquor store on the island of Nantucket. Not only are they friendly and extremely knowledgeable, they have a fantastic selection of beer, wine and spirits. Épernay is a favorite shop in the neighborhood but one that our guests at the inn will highly enjoy as well while staying on the Island. They are also offering some unique tasting events this fall – check out the details below!
