An Idea with Legs

You met with the caterer, sampled some dishes, settled on skirt steak and salmon. Now what about the wine? Not everyone is an expert, and that’s okay. Enter Anna Ward, an Island-raised oenophile and certified wine expert. Ward recently launched Wine by Anna, a new service to help brides and grooms choose pairings that will impress even the fussiest of wedding guests. Packages start at $500 and include a consultation, tasting, and coordination with caterers, liquor stores, and bar staff. For more information, visit

Speaking of Wine...

There’s still no vineyard on the Vineyard, but there is a new Vineyard–marketed rosé in town. Look for the attractive label at an Island liquor store – perfect for an upcoming bachelorette party or wedding shower. One dollar from every $20 bottle sold supports the Martha’s Vineyard Boys & Girls Club.
