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.

Garlic Shrimp Recipe & Pairing

August 26, 2019 by Molly Schroeder

Being located on Lake Michigan we have a love for fish and seafood. Many of our wines pair perfectly with both. Our September featured wine is Sparkling Viognier & Chenin Blanc and it compliments shellfish dishes wonderfully. Cook up this delicious recipe and pair it with our dry white, Sparkling Viognier & Chenin Blanc.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime or lemon juice
  • 6 garlic cloves (grated or minced)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 pound shelled large shrimp (leave the tails attached) and deveined

____________________________________________________________________________

Instructions

  1. Whisk together olive oil, juice, garlic, cumin, red pepper flakes, salt, and black pepper. Add in shrimp and toss to coat. Set aside for 20 minutes to marinate. *
  2. After marinating, place marinated shrimp into a saucepan. Cook over medium heat until done (about three minutes), turning them over halfway through.
  3. Plate your shrimp with your favorite type of noodle or a side of rice. Don’t forget your glass of von Stiehl Sparkling Viognier & Chenin Blanc.

*Shrimp may be marinated for up to a day. If you are marinating your shrimp for more than 20 minutes, omit lime/lemon juice, then add juice just before cooking.
