It’s time to enjoy THE VINEYARD LIFE

A dream in the making for our clients… and our agency!

It’s been nearly 20 years that Janet Leigh Scott has been living “the Vineyard life” and working with buyers and sellers toward making their own Vineyard dream a reality. It was a brand destined to be. “Having worked in real estate and customer-centric business for years, I had developed my own set of standards for what real customer service looked and felt like, and when the beautiful offices at 32 North Water Street in Edgartown became available, I new the time was right to hang out my own shingle,” shared Janet as we looked out the large windows onto the bustle of families and businesses getting ready for the onset of the Summer season. “I love it here,” she continued. “Whether you are in Edgartown or Aquinnah or anywhere in between, the sense of community — both personal and business — is overwhelming with kindness, generosity and an almost palpable entrepreneurial spirit. I’ve been encouraged, welcomed and supported. And I’m so looking forward to paying that spirit of enthusiasm and support forward,” she continued. “An investment in Martha’s Vineyard is always, always a lasting one. Whether you visit for a couple of days, spends the summers or hunker down for a lifetime, this magical island will always make the most cherished memories and feel like home.”

More than 30 years ago, The Taste of the Vineyard, or “The Taste” as it is affectionately known, was started by the Vineyard Trust as a fund raiser for the restoration of the newly acquired Flying Horses Carousel. It’s a grand 2-night affair that kicks-off the Island’s social season in early June each year.  The event has grown exponentially in popularity and participation over the years and is now the most important annual fundraiser for the Vineyard Trust, a  501 (c) (3) charitable organization. By supporting the Taste, you are supporting the preservation of twenty historic landmark buildings and scenic landscapes like the Flying Horses Carousel, Alley’s General Store and the Old Whaling Church which are in the Trust’s stewardship.

On Thursday evening, Taste will welcome over 1,000 attendees to the Taste of the Vineyard Gourmet Stroll on the sprawling lawns of the Dr. Daniel Fisher House.  More than 90 participants will gather in a series of tents, including the Island’s finest restaurants, caterers and beverage purveyors. It’s a wonderful opportunity to sample the island’s best food, wine and hand-crafted beers. Each guest picks up a complimentary wine glass and buffet tray at the entrance then noshes and sips their way through the amazing displays of tasty treats and fine beverages.  After you’ve had a “Taste” from more than 90 outstanding fine food and beverage participants, you can dance the night away with Jerry Bennett and the Sultans of Swing.

Two nights later the Taste switches gears, and transform the tents to host the Taste of the Vineyard Patrons’ Party and Auction—an elegant evening that offers a delectable menu by the Vineyard’s most popular caterer V. Jaime Hamlin & Sons, hand crafted cocktails, a silent auction and a live auction.

The Silent Auction offers guests and incredible opportunity to win coveted items offered for bid, followed by a live auction with legendary emcee Trip Barnes!

See you there!
