WE WANT YOU TO KNOW WHAT'S
IN (OR NOT IN) YOUR WINE
You have a right to know what's in what you eat,
and same should go for what you're drinking-
 Not only are wines made in a more natural way good for the planet, they are downright delicious too.
Fewer additives, less alcohol, and lower levels of sulfites make for bright, fruity flavors, colors and textures.
These are skillfully made wines which rely on
great farming practices.
 
 
 
 
Our new wine signage takes the guesswork out and makes it a snap to make an
informed decision on your purchase

Sensitive to Sulfites?
"Natural wines" have low to no added sulfites 

Want your wines free of synthetic pesticides?
Look for the "organic, bio or natural" sign 

Don't want any artificial additives in your wine?
Choose wines that are labeled 
biodynamic or natural 

Want to support companies working towards better growing practices and employee welfare?
 Wines marked "sustainable" are a great option!

Leah Mojer

Wine and Cheese Manager

This month marks Leah’s seventh year at Bartlett’s Farm. Her Nantucket journey began when she moved here with her father at the age of 11. After high school, Culinary School, Cheese and Charcuterie training, and living in Orlando, FL, Portland, OR, and Somerville, MA, she found her way back to the island and in 2011, she started working at the farm. She has held various roles – from Deli Manager to Assistant Market Manager, and even spent a year making charcuterie. With the advent of wine sales, she has settled into the role of our Wine and Cheese Manager, where she truly enjoys educating people about various wines and production methods. She also loves to hold wine tastings like ‘Rose in the Roses.’  She continues to educate herself about cheeses each year by attending cheese-maker events,  and says if she could only have one cheese for the rest of her life it would be the mushy, gushy and beautiful French cheese called Vacherin Mount D’Or.


Leah loves the ebb and flow of the seasons and embraces the small things - the first pansies or the first tomatoes or the first greens - each year. She says “The entire island is your doorstep. Anytime of the year, you can find a place to be alone in nature.” And indeed, on her days off she finds herself outside, not quite alone, but with her dog Hazelnut enjoying all the aspects of the island.


Leah makes the most of opportunities where she can pour new wines and educate her peers. Her Instagram account @voxedwine reflects her desire to give voice to small production farmers and winemakers who grow using responsible and sustainable methods.
