What’s so special about the steer roast? For starters, the steer is unique.

Spent grains from the brewery are currently being fed to our steer at the Bryersquart Family Farm, one of the top farms in polled genetic cattle in Door County. Bryersquart is family to one of the winery owners. The steer is well cared for by Scott Jeanquart, a genetic expert, who is growing one of Door County’s finest herds. His animals and embryos are sold at auction to buyers in the United States and beyond.

Why is the steer roast called the “BrewVino Roast?”

This steer is raised on Ahnapee Brewery spent grains at the Bryersquart Family Farm (Brew). Prior to the roast, the steer is bathed in a cherry wine marinade (Vino). This is a true farm-to-table experience! And not just anybody is preparing this feast. For starters, the steer is processed by Otto’s Meats in Luxemburg. von Stiehl Winemaker, Aric Schmiling, prepares the special cherry and red wine marinade. Then, the full carcass is marinated for 24 hours prior to the steer roast. The roast begins with a hot fire at 3 am on the day of the event, with a serving time somewhere between noon and 1 pm.

Relax and Unwind

November 1, 2019 by Molly Schroeder

We encourage you to sit back, relax, and enjoy a glass (or a bottle) of wine before the Holiday season kicks off. Just remember wine is the perfect gift, especially for the holidays. We have multiple varieties of holiday gift boxes featuring wine, sweet or salty treats, cheese, crackers and logo tumblers. Visit our online store to view all of our gift boxes or visit the winery to create custom holiday gift boxes.
With Thanksgiving quickly approaching, we thought the perfect wine to feature is von Stiehl Cranberry wine. Each bottle of Cranberry wine is jam-packed with cranberries. In fact, if you like dry red wines, you need to give this one a try. You might be surprised at how much you enjoy it. The cranberries we use are from Wisconsin Rapids and are hot-pressed to extract the most color and flavor. The cranberry juice is then fermented in stainless steel to create a more intense, tart, but balanced wine. This is why von Stiehl Cranberry wine is a special treat with your holiday meals. Skip the canned cranberries and enjoy a glass of wine with your turkey and ham. In fact, we suggest turning your turkey or chicken leftovers into a chicken salad sandwich.
Stay warm and enjoy the time with your family and friends over the next month. Keep checking your emails for upcoming specials and promotions on your favorite von Stiehl wines.
Hope to see you soon!
~Cheers.

Peach Cobbler Pairing

September 24, 2019 by Molly Schroeder

 

Warm your home with the delightful smell of Peach Cobbler. Then once you have created this delicious dessert, enjoy a glass of Late Harvest Reisling. Our Late Harvest Riesling grapes come from Yakima Valley in the state of Washington. The desert-like climate provides a long summer full of hot days and cool nights coupled with irrigation from the Columbia River. The grapes are left on the vine well into the fall to intensify in taste and sweetness. This is why Late Harvest Reisling pairs so great with a dish like Peach Cobbler.

 

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups sugar (divided) 
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 4 cups fresh beach slices
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • Ground cinnamon or nutmeg (optional) 

_______________________________________

Direction

  1. Melt butter in a 13′ x 9′ inch baking dish.
  2. Combing the flour, 1 cup of sugar, baking powder and salt. Then add milk and stir until dry ingredients are moist. Pour the batter over butter but DO NOT STIR. 
  3. Bring the remaining 1 cup of sugar, peach slices, and lemon juice to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly. Then pour over the batter again, DO NOT STIR. Top with a sprinkle of cinnamon or nutmeg is desired. 
  4. Bake at 370 for 40 to 45 minutes or until golden brown. Serve cobbler warm or cool. 

Add a scoop of ice cream and a glass of von Stiehl’s Late Harvest Reisling to enhance the flavors of your peach cobbler. 

Fall is in the Air

September 5, 2019 by Molly Schroeder

Summer is winding down and fall is in the air. Our grapes are starting to plump and turn red with the late summer sunshine. This is the time of year when grapes start to produce their sugars in preparation for harvest. To celebrate harvest season, we look forward to Wet Whistle Wine Fest taking place September 13th and 14th. At this year’s festival, we hope to see you enjoy wine, music, and friends of new and old, all while helping to raise funds for the Community Improvement of Algoma.
In preparation for fall and the harvest, we have decided to feature our Sparkling Viognier & Chenin Blanc for September. It’s an even blend of Viognier and Chenin Blanc. When you enjoy this Brut style wine, you will taste notes of apricot and honeysuckle along with rich flavors of ripe white peach and mineral. The small bubbles will heighten your senses and cleanse your palate between courses. Pair this dry white with a garlic shrimp dish, your favorite sushi, or Thai cuisine. Chévre and Brie are also the perfect soft cheeses that are enhanced by the mouthful of tiny bubbles from the wine. We even suggest starting your Saturday morning by adding this wine to your favorite orange juice, or relax after work with this intensely satisfying dry white wine.
Stop by and enjoy a free sample of Sparkling Viognier & Chenin Blanc with your tastings all month long. In fact, stop by this Saturday as we wrap up ourSummer Concert Series with the Annie Rose Band. We have our wine flights and wine slushies ready for you to enjoy as well.
Hope to see you soon!
~Cheers.

Sweet Saturdays featuring Love You More Toffee

February 23, 2019 by Rayanne Racine

Bored from being inside this winter? Jump in the car, go for a drive, and visit us any Saturday in February and enjoy complimentary samples of various sweet treats.

Sweet treats we will be featuring are near and dear to us because they are from local confectioners. That means you may find a new favorite. We will even let you know which wine pairs well with each sweet!

 

Our ‘Sweet’ Line Up:

February 2nd – Sap Happy Maple Products

February 9th – Country Ovens

February 16th – White Cottage Red Door

February 23rd – Love You More Toffee

*Confectioners will be onsite from Noon – 3 pm each Saturday in February.*

 

Anything sampled will be available for purchase, in case the sample kept you craving for more!

Make your day even sweeter by enjoying wine tastings! We recommend trying our Cherry Bounce or Apple Bounce, as they are brandy fortified and an extraordinary treat.

If sweets aren’t your thing, don’t worry… we have plenty of delectable dry wines, such as our Pinot NoirCalistoga Cabernet, and our 2016 El Dorado Dolcetto. And if you feel like snacking, we have an array of gourmet cheeses.

Why not make a weekend of it and reserve spots on our VIP Tour that takes place on Friday afternoons! It includes a behind the scenes tour with one of our wine makers and a three course pairing.

Looking for a place to stay? We recommend staying at Hotel Stebbins if you want to be within walking distance. Otherwise, view all of Algoma’s Lodging here.
