Vintage Tasting

September 16, 2017 by

Von Stiehl Offers Vintage Tasting on September 16

 

We’d love for you to join us on September 16, from 12:30 to 3:30 pm in the bottling room of our production building at 104 Steele Street. You need not attend the wine festival in order to take part in this tasting, but as they say, “When in Rome…”

 

This list is offered once a year at the Wet Whistle Wine Fest in September. These wines are near and dear to us, so just our family pulls corks and pours them for guests. We love to see the reactions on tasters’ faces as they first try our 2012 Barrel Select Cabernet Sauvignon. It’s a bit of an abnormal tasting, set up on planks and barrels in our bottling room. Just the wine is fancy – the rest of it comes down to simple enjoyment of vintages that have enjoyed extra time relaxing within the winery walls.

 

We ask that you buy a Riedel stemless wine glass for $10. After that, we’ll pour five samples from the special vintage tasting list. No reservations are needed, but keep in mind that we will run out of certain offerings as the day goes on. It’s both a sad, and a happy time!

 

This year bottles are numbered so you’ll know if someone steals yours!

Vintage Tasting At Wet Whistle Wine Fest

August 18, 2017 by Rayanne Racine

 

von Stiehl Offers Vintage Tasting on September 16

Tucked away in various places of our production and tasting room buildings are small lots of old vintages. There will be two to ten cases of our favorite varieties spread out and tucked under pallet racking that look out of place. Early September, the odd lots are gathered, we come to terms with how many bottles of each to sell, and we then come up with a Vintage Tasting List. This list is offered only once a year at the Wet Whistle Wine Fest.

Some of the wines offered at this event have a limited supply, so tears will be shed. Below is a sneak peek at a few of the wines featured at this year’s Vintage Tasting.

2015 Big Roast Red ~ This special bottling for our 2015 Meet the Makers Festival, now known as BrewVino Roast, is a blend of four different wines to create the perfect blend. A little spicy with a hint of oak, this blend creates the perfect wine for a barbecue. Only 16 bottles left!

2012 VS Barrel Select Cabernet ~ Every few years an outstanding vintage is allowed an extended time in oak. Three top-tier barrels from a lot of twelve were blended to create this one-time offering. This medium bodied, rich and elegant wine features fragrant aromas of black cherry, cassis and plum with flavors of currant and dark berries. It will only be available at special tastings, so this may be your only time to try it! 20 cases – New Release! 

2016 Apple Bounce ~ Intense aromas of fresh apple pie marry with smooth apple brandy overtones. It’s been aged in small American oak bourbon barrels for four months. 20.5% alcohol. Be careful! Unlimited ~ New Release!

We’d love for you to join us on September 16, from 12:30pm to 3:30pm in the bottling room of our production building at 104 Steele Street. You don’t have to attend the wine festival in order to take part in this tasting, but you are more than welcome to!

von Stiehl Winery Named in Top Vineyards All Around the Country by Travel + Leisure

June 15, 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 than the borders of Kewaunee County. While our wine ships interstate to the country’s corners, evidence of our actions are open to the world via winery reviews.

These digital reviews have become the primary place to learn the truths of a business. That means good or bad, everyone can read what anyone wants to post. This time around it’s a positive because Travel + Leisure dug into winery reviews all around the country. It’s no surprise that California came out on top given the density of wineries. However, we’re pretty excited to be on the list just below our West Coast friends.

How did this happen, you ask? Here are details taken from Travel + Leisure’s website:

“Yelp analyzed the reviews of vineyards throughout the country to determine which ones Americans like best. From the Sauvignon Blanc of the Napa Valley to the Rieslings of New York’s Finger Lakes, each area of the country has its own specialties.

To compile the list, Yelp looked at businesses in the wineries category, compared quantity and quality of reviews, and limited results to two per state to ensure geographic diversity.”

Winery Reviews

If you’re thinking, enough already, share the link! Here it is.

We got this far by receiving reviews from our wonderful customers. Here are some of our favorite Yelp reviews:

Wisconsin’s oldest and most delighted winery for sure! They have such a great array of wines to choose from that there is no way you can’t find one that you don’t like. The staff is astute, well kept and very timely in their service.

Free-tasting unless you go to the more expensive wines – your oak-aged wines, the cherry bounce which is borderline brandy, etc. The bottles of wine themselves are priced very reasonably as well.

I come back here bi-weekly in the summer. To stock up, bring friends to try new wines, or to just get out and enjoy the day. I would definitely recommend this stop to anyone who loves wine!   Annabella R.

We have been going to Von Stiehl for years and each year their wine gets better and better. The building itself is wonderful to visit as its gorgeous and historic. They have a varied wine selection, some good, some just okay but they have something for everyone. We are suckers for anything they Gamba age so we always buy a few bottles of whatever they have in stock! The Alexander Cabernet is another favorite.

It always a fun time to stop in and do a wine tasting. Jason B.

 

Read them all here.

Winery reviews like these are rewarding and we are humbled to be spoken of so nicely. We hope that you stop in this summer and enjoy your experience down the road less traveled that leads to Algoma!

Pinot Noir Returns

September 19, 2016 by Brad Schmiling

Pinot Noir is back in stock!

Pinot Noir Label

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 ’why don’t you use corks?’ we invested in a mono-block filler and converted entirely to corks. Guess what happened next? Screw-caps became the new thing! We’re not going back after putting in our 25 years of screw-caps. It’s the principle of the matter.

The same thing is happening with Pinot Noir. This lovely wine was our first dry red release. A 1998 vintage Oregon-sourced Pinot Noir was von Stiehl’s first foray into the dry red market. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot quickly fol­lowed. Many of our reds did (and still do) well, but Pinot flopped. It was an odd grape that garnered no interest so we discontinued it. Then Sideways premiered. You know, the 2004 movie that put Pinot Noir on the map. For a decade to follow everyone asked, “Do you have a Pinot Noir?” No, and now we’re not going to just because. Blame it on our German stubbornness. It’s the principle of the matter.

The buzz has worn down, and we are offering Pinot Noir another shot at standing on its own. We fermented eight barrels of 2015 Columbia Gorge Pinot Noir, and aged it eight months in medium toast French hybrid Oak. If you are one of the few die-hard customers that remembers the last Pinot Noir, we applaud your patience! We hope that it was worth the wait. It is available in our tasting room now for you to sample, or get it online. Just don’t ask us to bring back Robust Red.

You’ll see two other new reds this fall, Mourvèdre and Mal­bec, and in case you’re wondering, we do still use corks. With the exception of our reserve reds, they are 100% green syn­thetic corks (Select Bio Corks) that leave a zero carbon footprint. We’re sticking to that principle.

Vintage Tasting at Wet Whistle Wine Fest

August 16, 2016 by Brad Schmiling

Vintage Tasting

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 varieties spread out, and tucked under pallet racking that look out of place. We like to hide these vintages in plain sight. When the beginning of September rolls around, we go on a wine hunt. The odd lots are gathered, then signs are made. Pricing is negotiated. Tears are shed. You get the idea.

When we come to terms with how many bottles of each vintage to sell, we then come up with a Vintage Tasting List. This list is offered once a year at the Wet Whistle Wine Fest in September. These wines are near and dear to us, so just our family pulls corks and pours them for guests. We love to see the reactions on tasters’ faces as they first try our 2006 Barrel Select Cabernet Sauvignon. Another highlight is to pull and offer barrel samples of a special batch of Cherry Bounce. It’s a bit of an abnormal tasting, set up on planks and barrels in our bottling room. Just the wine is fancy – the rest of it comes down to simple enjoyment of vintages that have enjoyed extra time relaxing within the winery walls.

We’d love for you to join us on September 17, from 12:30 to 4 pm in the bottling room of our production building at 104 Steele Street. You need not attend the wine festival in order to take part in this tasting, but as they say, “When in Rome…”

We ask that you buy a Riedel stemless wine glass for $10. After that, we’ll pour five samples from the special vintage tasting list. No reservations are needed, but keep in mind that we will run out of certain offerings as the day goes on. It’s both a sad, and a happy time!
