Worker Call – Door County Wine Fest

April 25, 2016 by

Door County Wine Fest

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 Harbor will be a wine taster’s paradise this June 25.

Who are the participating wineries? The list is the same as that of the Door County Wine Trail: Door 44, Door Peninsula, Harbor Ridge, Orchard Country, Red Oak, Simon Creek, Stone’s Throw, and von Stiehl Wineries. Each will bring 10 wines for sampling along with two select vintages for a V.I.P. tasting.

While we are promoting attendance, our equal concern is staffing. We’re looking for a few workers that would be willing to set up, and pour wine samples, on June 25th. Interested? We’ll happily compensate you a bottle of wine or $10 in cash per hour worked. If you’re up for pouring, please email Brad@vonStiehl.com to sign up.

Here’s the scope of the day:

11 am: Set up of von Stiehl Winery tent

Noon: Eat lunch

1 pm to 5 pm: Pour 1/2 ounce samples, sell select varieties by the glass and bottle

5 pm: Clean and pack up

6 pm: Finished

If you’re interested in attending but aren’t too keen on working it, here’s some more information from DoorCountyWineTrail.com:

Door County Wine Tour Weekend

April 21, 2013 by

Spring in Door County wine country is filled with blossoming orchards and vineyards regenerating after a long winter. With these buds and blossoms comes the excitement of a new crop and every farmer and vintner’s hope for a bountiful harvest.

On the weekend of May 17-19, the Door County Wine Trail Weekend will take place. Celebrate the spring by indulging in a wide array of individual events at seven local wineries including orchard and vineyard tours, cheese and chocolate pairings, live music and salsa dancing. Take part in a barrel tasting seminar or dinner show.

Maximize your wine trail weekend experience by picking up a wine trail brochure including our new passport program. Visit all seven wineries, collect a stamp at each and receive a limited edition wine trail logo embossed glass, while supplies last.
