Summer Concert Series with Annie Rose Band

July 7, 2018 by Rayanne Racine

Concert Series

What do you get when you combine a touch of Jazz, Blues, Gospel and a lot of Rock?  Nothing other than the Annie Rose Band!  Annie Rose is often referred to as “Green Bay’s best kept secret.”  She is returning to the von Stiehl stage to help us kick off our 2018 Summer Concert Series on Saturday, July 7th, from 12:30-4:00 pm.

The music is going to be great.  Add a cool Lake Michigan breeze, a beautiful riverside view, a glass of your favorite von Stiehl wine, or maybe even a beer from Ahnapee Brewery and then you have the recipe for the perfect lakeside summer afternoon.

New this year, we are re-releasing one of our vintage wines each Saturday. Sample a re-released vintage wine in our tasting room, for an additional $1 when tasting our Select Wine Tasting. Keep in mind that we may run out of certain offerings as the day goes on. It’s both a sad, and a happy time! Our vintage wine for this Saturday is our 2010 Yakima Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. 

We’ve also changed the layout this year, as we no longer have a tent on the front lawn for wine sales. Instead, we will be serving wine out our window and inside the winery, allowing for cash and card sales. We will also have a couple of hostesses each concert to provide table service for wine by the bottle. Beer will be available at the Taproom, but still can be enjoyed on the terrace.

The Skaliwagon Food Truck will not be with us this year. Instead, we recommend trying our Picnic Box for 2. The Picnic Box will include local Wisconsin cheeses, crackers, von Stiehl’s Hard Cider Sausage from Salmon’s Meats made with our Hard Cider, Door County munchies, Halo Vino glasses and other yummy snacks fit for two. This box can be found in our Tasting Room or ordered at the window.

Arrive before the concert starts 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.

Admission is free.

*Bands may be subject to change. Sorry, no food or drink carry-ins allowed, but wine, beer, food, water & soda will be available for purchase.

Summer Series Vintage Wines

In past years, we’ve had a tent out on our lawn serving our wine and Ahnapee’s beer. This year, we’ve decided to serve the wine from our window and offer table service allowing for cash and card sales. Beer will be available at the Taproom, but still can be enjoyed on the terrace. The Skaliwagon Food Truck will not be with us this year. Instead, we recommend trying our Picnic Box for 2.

Annie Rose Band

What do you get when you combine a touch of Jazz, Blues, Gospel and a lot of Rock?  Nothing other than The Annie Rose Band!  Annie Rose is often referred to as “Green Bay’s best kept secret.”  She is returning to the von Stiehl stage to help us kick off our 2017 Summer Cuisine Concert Series on Saturday, July 8 from 12:30-4:00pm.
The music is going to be great.  Add to the music a cool Lake Michigan breeze, a beautiful riverside view, delicious gourmet cuisine from Skaliwags, a glass of your favorite 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.

Annie Rose Band, Gourmet Wine, Ahnapee Beer and Skaliwags! All in one location along the beautiful shore of Lake Michigan.

Admission is free.

*Bands may be subject to change. Sorry, no carry-ins allowed, but wine, beer, food, water & soda will be available for purchase.

Annie Rose Band Concert at von Stiehl Winery in Algoma

July 16, 2016 by

Annie Rose Band ConcertAnnie Rose Band Concert

von Stiehl Wine • Ahnapee Brews • Skaliwags Cuisine • Lake Michigan View and Breeze

Saturday • July 16 • 12:30–4pm • Free Admission

What makes the perfect music venue? In the concert world acoustics make all of the difference. The best concert venue in northeast Wisconsin is the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts. The acoustics there are amazing! Our venue won’t be the best for a symphony, but we have a few other advantages.

For starters, the Cuisine Concert backdrop is the Ahnapee River and Lake Michigan. That means cool summer breezes. It means plenty of mood-boosting negative ions! When the inland hits the 90s, everyone drives to the lake to enjoy upper 70s or lower 80s.

Now a summer Saturday afternoon with the Annie Rose Band in Wisconsin begs for a glass or two of wine – von Stiehl wine! Combine a cool breeze, waterscape, and wine! Should you get hungry, our friends from Skaliwags are on site with their catering truck. They serve the best gourmet sandwiches on the Lake Michigan east coast! For that matter, we’ll put their food against any truck on any coast!

Should you decide that wine isn’t for you during the Annie Rose Band Concert, just grab a craft beer from Ahnapee Brewery. The brewery’s tap room is right next door. You’ll also find the favorites on tap outside by the show.

Add all of that to the Annie Rose Band, and you’ve found the ideal venue for summer music.

Cuisine Concert Series Calendar*:

July 9: Abler and Son
July 16: Annie Rose Band

Wet Whistle Wine Fest September 13 & 14, 2013

Wine Fest Next Month
In 2011, the Groove Hogs played their last reunioun concert for the wine fest. To get them back we had to rent a sound system and pay a little higher price to cover airfaire for a couple of the band members. We moved on to the rythm and blues of In Black ‘n’ White last year and while they brought it, many were sad to have lost the Hogs. The magic is back. After some begging and pleading, the band has agreed to buy plane tickets, rehearse, and show up to relive their glory days on the grounds of this fall’s Wet Whistle Wine Fest. This is where we would normally copy something off of their website about their music style, but there is no longer a website. To help you get the idea, they have brass, love playing songs from the past 40 years that were written by musicians that had brass, and rock them and the crowd to no end. It wasn’t uncommon to see 80+ year-old grandmothers dancing on picnic tables (no disrespect to grandmothers, they can move with the best of them). They don’t mind if you dance on stage with them while they tend to tight harmonies as they scale the scales and rock the grannies.
Don’t let the Groove Hogs steal the thunder from The Cougars on Friday afternoon or the Annie Rose Band on Saturday morning. Both these bands have strong female vocals. The Cougars are a year-old band that should be charging more. With three female leads and a solid rock band behind them, they will get you dancing and keep you saying “wow they sing that too!” Bring your ear plugs for Annie Rose as it won’t be a quiet Saturday morning overlooking the lake. She’ll have you looking over your shoulder for Bobby McGee while the wine shakes in your glass.
Of course there will be plenty of our wine, a beer bar, specialty foods, fine art fair, and multitudes of creative costumes. One suggestion: plan wine tasting for Friday or Monday. Due to so much traffic during the weekend, we set up tasting outside in a tent in small plastic cups. It’s not ideal but serving free wine to 2,000 in one day is no small feat; even if they’re purple. Flanking the crowded days will be a busy Friday and slower Monday and those will be the best for visiting the regular tasting bar.
If you grew accustomed to enjoying the vintage wine tasting we apologize as there will not be one this year. Instead, we will most likely plan an event over winter when the crowds aren’t loud, allowing us to talk in our normal voices as we pour the high end wines.
