Wet Whistle Wine Fest in Algoma, Wisconsin

September 14, 2018 by Rayanne Racine

Wet Whistle Wine Fest

Wet Whistle Wine Fest • Friday, Sept. 14 | 5–9pm (Free) • Saturday, Sept. 15 | 10am–6pm ($10)

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 while sipping on our wine!

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 happy nuns who love Naughty Girl wine. 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!

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 happy nuns who love their wine. 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!

New Sparkling Wine – a Viognier & Chenin Blanc Blend

May 19, 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 line, wineries of Wisconsin would ship their wines to a winery in Michigan to be sparkled. We like our neighbors to the east, but those shipping charges add up. In a way, our bubbles are green!

Sparkling Wine - Viognier & Chenin BlancWhat does this new wine taste like? It’s a little on the dry side, so all you Brut drinkers out there can let out a little cheer, unless you’re reading this at home, then you can cheer loudly. Cue the winemaker’s description:

2016 Columbia Valley Viognier & Chenin Blanc

VIOGNIER 70% • CHENIN BLANC 30%
This textured and aromatic wine done in a Brut style offers sumptuous aromas of apricot and honeysuckle with rich flavors of white peach, ripe pear, and mineral. Pairs well with sushi, shellfish dishes, Thai, or softer cheeses such as Chevre’ and Brie.

This test batch was produced in a 160 case lot and will be available on our tasting menu this June, for $17.99/bottle.

You may only slightly recognize the label. We started with the base von Stiehl white label concept, and then reversed it to appear mainly black. The foil label is matched by a matte black foil capsule. Underneath is a new type of closure, developed to look like a champagne cork, but unscrew. This allows it to be easily re-closed should the rare occurrence happen that you don’t finish the bottle with friends.

The first sparkling wine of von Stiehl came in the mid ’90s in a white painted Holiday Wine bottle. You few historians might also remember the same wine under the Cherry Sparkle label for the summer time season.

Next came Sparkling Muscat. The Muscat Canelli grape makes for a fantastic sparkling semi-sweet wine. The branding eventually changed to Captain’s Walk Titletown Wine, and is a favorite of Green Bay and the peninsula.

If you’re still reading this, then here’s an extra nugget. Not only did we offer a Sparkling Holiday and Sparkling Cherry wine, but for a short period of time in the early 90s there was a Cranberry Esprit. That probably won’t come back, but who knows? Maybe a version will resurface as Hard Cranberry Cider!
