Wet Whistle Wine Fest in Algoma, Wisconsin

September 16, 2017 by vonstiehl

Wet Whistle Wine FestWet Whistle Wine Fest • Friday, Sept. 15 | 4–8pm (Free) • Saturday, Sept. 16 | 10am–6pm ($10)

Wet Whistle Wine Fest offers award-winning wines, a grape stomp, hearty sandwiches, & live music! It isn’t the 2,000 visitors smiling all the time that’s weird. Nor is it the trombonist standing in a grape-filled barrel while playing an amazing riff. Nor the people with sticky purple feet dancing onstage. This is normal at a wine fest and to be expected. What’s odd at Wet Whistle Wine Fest are all the costumes. We don’t ask anyone to show up dressed as wine bottles, or nuns who smoke cigarettes. And these are just a couple examples of Wet Whistle Wine Fest goings-on that we just couldn’t make up. Don’t take our word for it… come to the wine fest and see it for yourself!

This Wet Whistle Wine Fest is a fundraiser for the Community Improvement of Algoma, and the Algoma Fire and Rescue. Come out to support these great non-profit organizations of Algoma!

Nothing says summer better than relaxing outside listening to live jazz music.
The music is going to be fantastic. Add to the music a cool Lake Michigan breeze, a beautiful riverside view, delicious gourmet cuisine from Skaliwags, a glass of your favorite award-winning von Stiehl wine or maybe even a beer from Ahnapee Brewery and then you have the recipe for the perfect lakeside summer afternoon.

von Stiehl Winery, Wisconsin’s oldest licensed winery, features a gorgeous outdoor terrace alongside the Ahnapee river with beautiful views of Lake Michigan. The terrace has relaxed seating for approximately 200 guests. Bring along a friend or two. Once here you can enjoy an afternoon of great music, your favorite wine or beer, amazing food and join us as we continue the celebration of our 50th Anniversary.

Arrive early to sample some of our gourmet wines in our Civil War era building that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places or even take a tour including a visit to our underground limestone tunnels and our 10,000 square foot production facility.

River City Six, jazz music, Gourmet Wine, Ahnapee Beer and Skaliwags! All in one location along the beautiful shore of Lake Michigan.

Admission is free.
