The 23rd Annual Nantucket Wine & Food Festival: May 15-19, 2019

Nick Martinelle

Wine Consultant and Educator

The Wine Trust

Nick’s wine bug bit him hard when he tasted the ’94 Musar at a game dinner at the Castle Restaurant in Leicester.  While attending school in Boston he found himself working under the legendary Tom Schmeisser at Marty’s where he developed his love of Italian wines and developed a fetish for Australian wine. He has moved onto creating some of the finest retail programs in the greater Boston area at shops such as The Spirited Gourmet and Charles Street Liquors. He is a tireless promoter of small-production, family-owned wineries from around the world. When he is not slinging juice or making wine puns, you can find him sitting on the drum throne for some of Boston’s finest rock bands.
