2011 is the 10th anniversary of the Wet Whistle Wine Fest, and we expect it to be more fun than ever. We’ll start celebrating at 3 p.m. on Friday (until 7 p.m.), and again at 10 a.m. on Saturday (until 6 p.m.). We’re looking forward to:
- Live Music
- Fine Art Show
- Heritage Foods
- Grape Stomp
This could be your year to win the Grape Stomp and take home a case of von Stiehl wine. We draw names right before each Stomp. If your name is called (and you’re at least 21 years of age), and you woo the crowd, you just might win the grand prize. Plus, it’s fun.
No Wet Whistle Wine Fest would be complete without our Wisconsin wines, and we’ll be pouring a great variety of it. On Friday night, we’ll offer unique wine and cheese flights on the terrace. On Saturday, our winemaker and his family will pour select vintages in our new facility; this tasting is complimentary with the purchase of a $10 Riedel stemless glass.
Read on for the music line-up:
- Men in Suits: Friday from 3 to 7 p.m.
- Michael’s Saints: Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1:15 p.m.
- Groove Hogs: Saturday from 1:30 to 5: 30 p.m.
This may be one of your last chances to see the Groove Hogs, since they officially disbanded last year. They’ll be at Wet Whistle Wine Fest simply because they love the venue and the crowd. We’re honored and we can’t wait to hear them play.
Dance to the music, watch the Grape Stomp or stomp grapes yourself. Visit with friends and drink Wisconsin Wine. The Wet Whistle Wine Fest is all about relaxing, having fun, and celebrating the crush. Hope to see you at von Stiehl in Algoma, Wisconsin on September 16 and 17, 2011.
