Summer Concert Series with Giving Up the Ghost

August 18, 2018 by Rayanne Racine

Concert Series

Join us August 18th from 12:30-4:00 pm for some live music featuring Giving Up the Ghost in concert. Giving Up the Ghost will be live on stage as part of our 2018 Summer Concert Series.

The music is going to be great.  Add a cool Lake Michigan breeze, a beautiful riverside view, a glass of your favorite von Stiehl wine, or maybe even a beer from Ahnapee Brewery and then you have the recipe for the perfect lakeside summer afternoon.

New this year, we are re-releasing one of our vintage wines each Saturday. Sample a re-released vintage wine in our tasting room, for an additional $1 when tasting our Select Wine Tasting. Keep in mind that we may run out of certain offerings as the day goes on. It’s both a sad, and a happy time! Our vintage wine for this Saturday is our Tequila Barrel-Aged Hard Cider. 

We’ve also changed the layout this year, as we no longer have a tent on the front lawn for wine sales. Instead, we will be serving wine out our window and inside the winery, allowing for cash and card sales. We will also have a couple of hostesses each concert to provide table service for wine by the bottle. Beer will be available at the Taproom, but still can be enjoyed on the terrace.

The Skaliwagon Food Truck will not be with us this year. Instead, we recommend trying our Picnic Box for 2. The Picnic Box will include local Wisconsin cheeses, crackers, von Stiehl’s Hard Cider Sausage from Salmon’s Meats made with our Hard Cider, Door County munchies, Halo Vino glasses and other yummy snacks fit for two. This box can be found in our Tasting Room or ordered at the window.

Arrive before the concert starts to sample some of our gourmet wines in our Civil War era building that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, or even take a tour including a visit to our underground limestone tunnels and our 10,000 square foot production facility.

Admission is free.

*Bands may be subject to change. Sorry, no food or drink carry-ins allowed, but wine, beer, food, water & soda will be available for purchase.

FAQs

What does everything cost?

Admission is free! Wine and beer are àla carte.

We have complimentary wine tasting inside the winery, in addition to a Select Wine Tasting for $5.

Are carry-in’s allowed?

Food & drink carry-ins are not permitted. We will have a Picnic Box for Two special featuring von Stiehl’s Hard Cider Sausage, your choice of Wisconsin cheese, Door County munchies and more to help ease your tummy!

Should I bring a chair?

It might not hurt. We have seating for around 300 on our three-tiered terrace and have days were 700+ people attend the concert.

Is it rain or shine?

No, for the safety of the band & our staff, we may have to cancel the concert. The best way to stay up to date on the concerts is by checking our Facebook page or giving us a call.

Is my pup allowed?

Yes! We do allow dogs on the lawn, but please be sure to keep them leashed, in your sight and clean up any messes. Only service dogs are allowed in the winery.

Vintage Tasting At Wet Whistle Wine Fest

August 18, 2018 by Rayanne Racine

 

von Stiehl Offers Vintage Tasting on September 15

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.

Due to these wines being near and dear to us, 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.

Most 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.

2012 Sangiovese Grosso ~ This 100% Sangiovese was produced from the vcr6 clone that is used to produce Italy’s famous Brunello. It reveals aromas of black cherry and red fruits, with a subtle hint of sweet pipe tobacco and barrel spice. (10 cs) $34

2008 VS Barrel Select Cabernet Sauvignon ~ This vintage was created by meticulously tasting and selecting the best four barrels from a lot of seventeen. It is ready to drink now but will continue to improve with age for the next 10-15 years. (5cs) $65

2011 Doc Stiehl’s Extra Aged Cherry Bounce ~ This barrel has been left in warm summer and cold winter temperatures over the course of 30 months to expedite aging. A sweet and smooth concoction of cherry wine and cherry brandy. Intense aromas of fresh cherry pie for a truly exquisite dessert wine. (6 cs) $55

We’d love for you to join us on September 15, 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!

BrewVino 2018 – 5 Reasons…

April 26, 2018 by Rayanne Racine

Our 2018 BrewVino sold out and has passed. For information and tickets for our 2019 BrewVino click this link.

-> Click this Link <- 

BrewVino Steer Roast 5 Reasons

BrewVino Roast – a True Farm-to-Table Experience!

By now you have heard about our BrewVino Roast through our Facebook page, an episode featured on the Cooking Channel, or even word of mouth from an attendee that told you they got their tickets and you shouldn’t wait much longer. BrewVino is only a month away and with less than half of the tickets left for this year’s event, time is no longer on your side!

Maybe you’ve seen all the posts and the episodes on television, yet you need one more reason you should come to this year’s BrewVino Roast. Well, that’s exactly why we are going to give you “5 Reasons You Should Attend our 2018 BrewVino!” If you’ve already bought your tickets, then think of this list as the “5 Reasons You Should Be Excited to Attend our 2018 BrewVino!”

  1. Wine! After all, what’s an event at a winery without wine? Not only do we have our typical wine selection, but we’ll also have a vintage wine tasting offered in our century year old tunnels. Some of the wines you’ll find waiting for you include our 2014 Alexander Valley Merlot, 2009 Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon, 2018 BrewVino Red (which we will talk about more in just a little bit) and our 2013 Extended Barrel Aged Kirsche. These wines and others on this list aren’t available for purchase just any normal day. After BrewVino, the wine left over will be hidden away until our winemakers decide when to bring them back out.
  2. Jumping off of our first point, our 2018 BrewVino Roast Red has taken a step up from past years. You can tell by the smile on our winemakers’ faces that they are proud of this year’s vintage. If you are a fan of our Calistoga Cabernet, this wine is right up your alley! It’s a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Old Vine Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and Petit Verdot. To match the exquisite wine inside the bottle, the label is a decadent maple veneer label with a black foil stamp.
  3. Everyone loves a little feel good aspect. This year we’ve decided to come together with the Wolf Den organization at the Algoma High School. Wolf Den is an after school program aimed at improving the physical, social and emotional well-being of Algoma’s youth. Wolves (high school students) plan and lead various activities which build Pups’ (elementary students) resilience, positive mindset, and basic life skills. There is an optional meal at the end of the program each day to ensure their basic needs are met before going home. Food insecurity and poverty effect many of our Algoma youth.  This program, along with the Wolves & Pups Mentorship Program, ensures that the Pups feel safe, valued and supported.
  4. A true Farm-to-Table experience, that’s exactly what you’ll get! This steer was raised on Ahnapee Brewery spent grains on the Bryersquart Family Farm in Forestville. This is not an amateur production either — for starters, the steer is processed by Otto’s Meats in Luxemburg. After, von Stiehl’s winemaker, Aric Schmiling, will prepare the special cherry wine marinade. Then, the full carcass is marinated for 24 hours before it’s laid over a hot fire at 2 am on the day of the event, with a serving time somewhere between noon and 2 pm, or when our experts deem it ready.
  5. Tickets are selling fast and you’ll regret not getting your tickets fast enough after listening to your friends talking about how much fun they had!

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!

BrewVino Roast

March 22, 2016 by

BrewVino Roast Logo

BrewVino Roast – an Event With a Different Flavor!

You may have enjoyed our inaugural steer roast last June when it was called Meet the Makers. We found that the most exciting part of the event was not the makers, but the steer roast. This year, we’ll be focusing more on the steer in the renamed BrewVino Roast event, but will also offer a unique batch of wine and beer to complement the steer.

You’ll have the chance to taste the most popular varieties of von Stiehl wines and Ahnapee brews during the event, and enjoy the opportunity to buy an exclusive batch of beer made just for the occasion. What’s unique about the BrewVino Steer roast? This steer was raised on Ahnapee Brewery spent grains on the Bryersquart Family Farm in Forestville. Prior to the roast the whole steer is bathed in a von Stiehl cherry wine marinade. This is not an amateur production, either — for starters, the steer is processed by Ottos Meats in Luxemburg, after which Chef Chris from Skaliwags and von Stiehl winemaker Aric Schmiling will prepare the special  cherry wine marinade. Then the full carcass is marinated for 24 hours before it’s laid over a hot fire at 2 am on the day of the event, with a serving time somewhere between noon and 2 pm, or when our experts deem it ready. This is a true farm-to-table experience!

All profits from the steer roast are donated to the Ribbon of Hope fund. Their mission is to be a financial, informational and emotional resource for individuals with breast cancer in Northeastern Wisconsin. Ribbon of Hope assists breast cancer patients regardless of age, gender, race or religion. This is a great organization where 97¢ of every $1 goes to grant recipients!

If tickets sell out online, they will not be available on the day of the event.
