The Return of the Wine Salon - and Coastal Wines at The Drawing Room

The Coastal Wine Trail winds through the heart of the Southeastern New England AVA (American Viticultural Area). With a paper passport in hand, travel to thirteen locally-owned wineries, tasting the very best the region has to offer, and getting a stamp (and a few bottles) along the way.  

NOTE: With COVID-19 restrictions, not all the Coastal Wine Trail wineries are open for tastings, but some have wines by the glass and bottles available for purchase. 

We’ve been working closely with Westport Rivers, part of The Coastal Wine Trail, with wine salons and tastings hosted by the incomparable Corey Nuffer. We also carry their Farmer’s Fizz, Champagne Method wines, and more for purchase at our store.  

Soon, we’ll be expanding our wine offerings to include additional vineyards from the Coastal Wine Trail. 

 

We’d like to know: what are your favorite picks from the Coastal Wine Trail? Send us an email at info@anthif.com and tell us about your favorite vineyard and the wine you’d love to see us carry. 

 

CORK DORK: The Return of the Wine Salon

In addition to expanding our wine selections, we’re bringing back our Wine Salons, this time virtual, and with a book club spin. We'll be guided by our resident wine expert, Corey Nuffer, on Sunday, October 25th at 3pm for our first virtual wine salon featuring the book Cork Dork.

With Corey leading us in discussion, this will be a different approach to developing your palate. We’ll take a more narrative-driven primer to wine, exploring the importance of words, something that’s often overlooked during tastings...and pretty much all wine lists ever. 

We’ll also focus on science, so you’ll learn just as much about how your body works when you smell and taste. It will all be thrown into helpful relief with Bianca Bosker’s life-changing book, Cork Dork: A Wine-Fueled Adventure Among the Obsessive Sommeliers, Big Bottle Hunters, and Rogue Scientists Who Taught Me to Live for Taste.

Reading the book is NOT required, just an added bonus. 

Attendees should find this experience profoundly transformative, regardless of how much, or little, you know about wines.
