We Wish a Happy Retirement to Sallie! On von Stiehl’s 38th year in business, the best salesperson to work in a winery this side of the Mississippi River took over our Algoma tasting room. Arriving with decades of experience in the art of service and selling, Sallie Marquardt massaged a ‘sweet cherry wine in a […]

June 15th, 2017 by Brad Schmiling

Winery Reviews Help von Stiehl to be Listed in Travel + Leisure Guests have been enjoying the experience in our little Algoma tasting room for a very long time. While we mostly think of ourselves as a small town winery close to Door County, it would appear that we are getting noticed much further away […]

May 19th, 2017 by Brad Schmiling

Sparkling Wine Produced In-House Welcome to the first page in the new chapter of von Stiehl Winery – in a 50 year old book that we’re still writing! What makes the Sparkling Viognier & Chenin Blanc blend different from our past pressurized wines? The bubbles are added right here in Algoma. Before our 2016 bottling […]

Bourbon Cider ~ Hard Apple Cider Aged in Bourbon Barrels

April 21st, 2017 by Brad Schmiling

Bourbon Cider ~ Hard Apple Cider Aged in Bourbon Barrels Life just doesn’t seem to be able to keep up with our minds. It’s a good problem to have and we sure do appreciate the loyal von Stiehl fans that wait patiently to see if our ideas make it to shelves. We tallied up this […]

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

50th Anniversary Celebration – von Stiehl Winery is Turning 50!

December 2nd, 2016 by Brad Schmiling

  We kept a winery in business until its 50th anniversary. With that, a plethora of emotions are flying about. We made it. We’re here – we did it! From the days of flower children and Elvis to the age of smart-phones and millennial bosses. We survived it all. From English Morello to Montmorency, cherry […]

Montepulciano – An Italian Grape Makes it to Wisconsin!

October 19th, 2016 by Brad Schmiling

Let’s talk about something that isn’t easy to say. Everyone seems to have finally nailed down the pronunciation of Merlot, Chardonnay, and Cabernet Sauvignon. Now, if you’ve also finally mastered Gewürztraminer it may be time for a new challenge: Montepulciano! Montepulciano is a second-nature wine expression in Italy. It is rarely found in northern Italy because […]

Pinot Noir Returns

September 19th, 2016 by Brad Schmiling

Pinot Noir is back in stock! Our timing can be impeccably poor, and we like it that way. In 1967, Doc Stiehl was ahead of his time with screw caps. The closure let in less oxygen, and was less prone to the natural bacteria that is commonly found in natural corks. Af­ter decades of hearing […]

Vintage Tasting at Wet Whistle Wine Fest

August 16th, 2016 by Brad Schmiling

Von Stiehl Offers Vintage Tasting on September 17 Tucked away in various places of our production building and tasting room buildings are small lots of old vintages. You will only notice them on tour if you look closely to find pallets of mismatched wine boxes. There will be two to ten cases of our favorite […]

Hard Cider – Double Gold and Best of Class

August 16th, 2016 by Brad Schmiling

New Hard Cider is Well-Received! Von Stiehl’s inaugural hard cider release, Apfel Hard Cider, was awarded a Double Gold medal at the 25th annual Indy International Wine Competition.

Algoma August Amusement

July 20th, 2016 by

August Amusement in Algoma If summer was only a month long, then we’d have the entire season left! As it is, the time to give it is here and there’s no shortage of things to see in Algoma in August. You might think summer activities would be dying down by August, but in Algoma, we’re […]

Wine Shipping Prices Reduced – As of July 1, 2016

June 29th, 2016 by

Ordering wine to be shipped used to require picking up the phone and chatting. We’re pretty sure that 800 numbers were created just for this reason. Remember “order toll-free?” While we always enjoy a good phone conversation, we understand that the convenience of online shopping has caught on and in that world, lower wine shipping prices are commonplace. This […]

Gold Medal Wines

June 10th, 2016 by

Four Gold Medal Wines Recognized at von Stiehl Winery Wisconsin’s oldest winery just brought home to the peninsula four more gold medals; three from Tasters Guild International Wine Competition and one from the West Coast Wine Competition.

Apple Cider

May 20th, 2016 by

It’s working! Our bubble making machine is actually working! The new bottling line is pumping out still AND sparkling wine in a glorious manner. The unexpected add-on of a bottle washer and dryer only makes the end product that much more enticing. Now it’s time to have some fun. Our first batch of apple cider, aka […]

Worker Call – Door County Wine Fest

April 25th, 2016 by

Von Stiehl is excited to be one of eight wineries participating in the Door County Wine Fest. What began as a small 500-800 person tasting event has grown into a full-blown ‘close down the highway’ kind of party. There are over 1,700 tickets sold so far, and online ticket purchasing is only picking up. Egg […]

Red Wine Release – Brunello

April 19th, 2016 by

While Brunello may be a great Italian mobster name in a one-act play, it takes on a much more serious tone when applied to the Sangiovese grape. It’s highly regarded in the Italian wine world where very few vintages rise to the esteemed name. Brunellos are rare in the U.S., but one of them resides in Algoma. […]

Ahnapee Little Soldier Bottled Beer

April 14th, 2016 by

Little Soldier Bottled Beer We held out for as long as we could before offering bottled beer. Ahnapee beer has been put on tap in over 125 restaurants and bars in our five-county area, and for that we are grateful! Draft beer almost always tastes better, but sometimes bottles better fit the occasion. We moved […]

BrewVino Roast

March 22nd, 2016 by

BrewVino Roast – an Event With a Different Flavor! You may have enjoyed our inaugural steer roast last June when it was called Meet the Makers. We found that the most exciting part of the event was not the makers, but the steer roast. This year, we’ll be focusing more on the steer in the […]

Help Wanted

March 22nd, 2016 by

Help Wanted Help wanted! Imagine working in a place where customers enter anticipating a good time. In this world you offer complimentary wine to happy guests, suggest enjoyable ways to save money, and deliver chocolate and cheese to satisfy eager taste buds. Only a fraction of customers bring problems. Instead, most will visit with you and eagerly […]

Family Wine Matters

March 18th, 2016 by

Join the Family for wine discounts that matter! When’s the last time you bought a new suit or dress to go to a neighbor’s kid’s wedding? That’s more of a ‘pick something out of the closet that’s comfortable’ affair, if you go at all. That’s the outside circle. Then there’s the group of those closest […]

Moscato for von Stiehl is Orange

February 26th, 2016 by

Sometimes Moscato is orange, but most of the time it is not. For von Stiehl, it is Orange Muscat, but it doesn’t have any oranges, and it isn’t Moscato. Follow? Orange Muscat is a grape that you’ve probably never tasted. It is one of over 200 varieties of the Muscat, or Moscato, grape family that […]
