VIP Tours at von Stiehl Winery

November 13th, 2017 by Rayanne Racine

VIP Tour Offering Coming Soon…

In 2018, tour von Stiehl Winery like a VIP during our newest tour offering, the VIP Tour.

The tour will start at von Stiehl winery, where we will review our history and talk about the future.

Then, we will walk over to our production facility where we invite you behind the scenes with one of our winemakers. This is a great time to ask them your questions, compliment them on your favorite wine, etc. Also, depending on what is going on at production, you may have the chance to sample something from the tanks before it gets into the bottle.

VIP Tours in the Cellars

VIP Tours will include a private three-course pairing in our wine aging cellar.

After talking with the winemaker(s), we will head to the von Stiehl Winery cellars/tunnels. For 40 years, all of our production took place in these three tunnels. In 2011, we moved all production to the production facility. Now we have our barrels aging in the tunnels. While down in these tunnels, enjoy a private three-course pairing, along with a select tasting of Cherry Bounce from the cask.

Are you a foodie? Interested in what the menu looks like?

The list below covers foods* showcased during the three course pairings.

Cherry Berry Nut Mix from Country Ovens, located in Forestville, WI. Since 1987, Country Ovens is home to many Cherry De-Lite cherry treats made exclusively from Door County Montmorency tart cherries.
