The 28th Annual Kewaunee/Door Salmon Tournament is just around the corner, July 24 to August 1, 2010. Already, anglers are checking their gear and preparing themselves for the Midwest’s most popular Chinook salmon fishing contest. The king fish will bring its angler $10,000. Now that’s some fish!
The fish must be caught in Lake Michigan waters off Kewaunee or Door Counties. Weigh-in ports are at Algoma, Kewaunee, Sturgeon Bay, Baileys Harbor and Washington Island.
That’s wonderful, you say, but what does all this have to do with Wisconsin wine? Everyone knows that wine is not what serious anglers drink when seriously angling.
Ah, but what about those the fishermen left behind?
Every angler leaves someone behind. There are many spouses and friends of anglers who are simply not interested in spending the day in pursuit of the biggest and best fish in the lake. For these souls, may we recommend waiting for your angler in the tasting room of our Algoma Wisconsin winery.
Remember, Algoma is a weigh-in station for the 28th Annual Kewaunee/Dorr Salmon Tournament. While your man (or woman) fishes, visit Algoma. Stop by our Algoma Wisconsin winery, tour our historic building, and taste until you find the perfect bottle to toast the biggest fish, or offer consolation for the one that got away. We have wines for every event, every occasion, every possibility.
