May is a great time for antiquing in Door County. The weather is usually wonderful (if a bit unpredictable). Fruit trees are in full bloom and flowers are popping up everywhere. In short, spring is a lovely time to travel to Wisconsin’s Door County.
There are many fine antique stores up and down the Door Peninsula, such as:
- Baileys Barn Antiques, in Baileys Harbor.
- Boat House Antiques in Sturgeon Bay.
- A Summer Cottage in Fish Creek.
- Chanticleer Antiques in Sister Bay.
- Cornerstone Antiques in Egg Harbor.
Of course, part of the fun is discovering your own treasures as you explore country lanes throughout Door County.
Don’t forget to stop by Algoma for a little Wisconsin Wine tasting at von Stiehl before your antiquing adventure. You’ll want a nice bottle of wine with you if you spend the night on the peninsula.
Save time to take a winery tour of von Stiehl during your Door County antiquing weekend!
The 5th Annual Girls Night Out takes place in Algoma, Wisconsin on May 18th and 19, 2012. Algoma is a charming small town on the shores of Lake Michigan, at the south end of the Door Peninsula. Don’t miss it!
There is nothing like getting away with your best girlfriends; you stay up late, talk about all sorts of things, and laugh a lot. Such occasions are precious, not least because the older we get, the less frequently they occur. Spouses, children, work, and other commitments mean there is little time for girlfriend getaways.
Make time for your best friends this year, or your sisters and your mother. Head to Algoma, Wisconsin for two nights at the historic Hotel Stebbins. This fun weekend includes:
- Steak and lobster dinner with complimentary hors d’oeuvres.
- DJ entertainment at Hotel Stebbins.
- Admittance into the Cherry De-Lite Festival
- $10 gift certificate to von Stiehl, a fabulous Algoma, Wisconsin Winery.
- $10 gift certificate to the Pampered Chef
- An assortment of free gifts from Algoma retailers.
The Cherry De-Lite Festival features live music, free chocolate covered cherries (oh my), and a televised “Cook Off” hosted by Mad Dog and Merrill and your weekend host, Kristine Ruel. It is guaranteed to be a fabulous weekend!
Stay one night or stay both nights. Just stay long enough to swing by von Stiehl for a little Wisconsin wine tasting while you’re here.
Additional information available at Hotel Stebbins.
We make wine here at von Stiehl Winery, but that doesn’t mean we don’t like beer. To prove it, we joining forces with Titletown Brewing Company on April 25, 2012, for a Wine and Beer Dinner. We hope you’ll join us there for a dinner paired with both wine and beer.
Titletown Brewing Company is located in a lovely historic railroad depot in Green Bay, Wisconsin. It’s a wonderful place to enjoy a meal (especially when that meal is accompanied by a glass of our Wisconsin wine or a pint of Titletown beer.
The Wine and Beer Dinner will start with a Greek Salad, move on to a lovely Pork Braciole, and conclude with Pecan Wine Cake. For those unfamiliar with it, a Pork Braciole is a pork loin stuffed with pancetta. It is unbelievably good. As for the Pecan Wine Cake, it simply has to be tasted.
Each course will be paired with a von Stiehl Wisconsin wine and a Titletown beer specifically chosen to complement the food. This really is the perfect event for couples with one avid beer drinker and one oenophile. It’s also a steal at just $30 per person (plus tax).
Reservations must be made by April 22. Please call Titletown at 920-437-2237.
Door County Cherries are imbued with all the freshness of spring. They burst with flavor. They’re tangy-sweet and juicy. To eat a cherry is to taste heaven.
When we see all the Door County Cherry blossoms, we dream of the future harvest and the cherry pies to come. We dream of jams and tarts and cherry-filled pastries. We anticipate cheesecakes topped with cherries, yogurt mixed with cherries, and chocolate covered cherries.
All these thoughts compel us to open a bottle of Doc Stiehl’s Cherry Bounce, a delightful combination of Wisconsin Cherry Wine and Cherry Brandy. We sip it after dinner, in lieu of eating a slice of non-existent cherry pie. When we feel in a very cherry mood, we also have a glass of Cherry Blossom Blush before dinner. The cherry flavor in our Wisconsin Cherry wines is always fresh.
Come to Door County to see the Cherry Blossoms this spring. Drive around on your own, ride your bike past the many orchards of the Door Peninsula, or sign up for a Spring Blossom Trolley Tour in Egg Harbor.
In the evening, after dinner, pull out a bottle of Doc. Stiehl’s Cherry Bounce, and toast the arrival of spring.
