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.

  • 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. *

Wine Pairing of Four Courses

December 21, 2016 by Brad Schmiling

Wine Pairing Cellar Image

Wine Pairing Tour Includes Four Courses – Winter 2016-2017

(Check back in fall 2017 to see if we renew this offer)

That feeling is growing; you know, the one where you need to get out of the house! It’s usually coupled with a desire for something new, something involving food, and something with good friends to lift your spirits. Here’s the antidote: grab three friends and sign up for our four-course pairing tour.

What we propose to offset the winter doldrums (instead of a tour and tasting) is a tasting tour. Enjoy a wine pairing tour this winter with at least three others.

You’ll get to take in the production and wine-aging tunnels with pairings of wine and food along the way. Sample a wide variety of wines. Taste in the 150 year-old barrel aging cellars. See the two-story fermenters up close. This tasting experience includes a wine pairing with locally-produced meat, cheese, and chocolate.

Stop #1

Begin in the tasting room at the bar. This tasting is elevated above your typical complimentary experience. You’ll enjoy a sampling of your choice of six fine wines from our complimentary and Select Vintages wine tasting list. The value of this pairing is $5 per person.

Stop #2

Tour our production facility. See the difference our modern equipment makes when used to produce great wines. Fermentation vessels, the first isobaric bottling line of its kind in North America, ozone and nitrogen generators, a computer-controlled glycol chiller system, and the list goes on.

Stop #3

Go underground and explore the tunnels. Tour our Rathskeller, originally built for the lagering of beer by Ahnapee Brewery in the 1800s. Learn the history of von Stiehl, and the art of barrel aging red wines. From hand-split French Gamba Oak to white Wisconsin oak, the barrels make a huge difference in the smoothness of von Stiehl reds. Enjoy a special white wine blend paired with local cheese. Sample red wine paired with meats from local smoke shops. Value $14 per person.

Stop #4

Return to our tasting room to enjoy a chocolate pairing flight. Take a seat at our cork tables by the fireplace, then experience the pairing of three wines with three specialty chocolates. Just don’t sit too close — you’ll melt the chocolate! Value $7.50 per person.

Package Value $106 for four, but we’re offering this experience for only $30 for four people. Are there more friends that you’d like to invite? Bring six guests for $44 or eight guests for $55.

Call 920-487-5208 to reserve this offer. At that time, we will arrange your tasting tour date and time. The special is available through the end of April.

Please call with at least 7 days advance notice. Tours are typically at 10:30 AM and 1 PM on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. We will be able to accommodate up to twelve guests per time slot. It may be possible to schedule other times. Rescheduling due to weather is permitted. Multiple flights of stairs and outdoor walking will be involved. We will do our best to modify the experience for those who are handicapped. Please note that the experience is for 4, 6, or 8. We cannot accommodate parties of two.
