Wine Bytes ~ Ask the Somm

We invite you to ask questions about the winery and your wine experiences in Wine Bytes. Have a question about a specific wine or region? Want to learn more about wine balance? Please ask us your questions. Jim Koehler grew up in the wine world at Valley Liquor in De Pere. He has an extensive knowledge of not only Captain’s Walk Wines, but wines of the world. The difference here is that no snobs are allowed! Wine is supposed to be a delightful experience – its own flavor of fun. Jim will do his best to answer any and all questions (that have to do with wine).

Question: Why is the wine experience special at Captain’s Walk Winery?
1. We produce great wine and hard apple cider on premise.
2. Our wine list is a terrific variety of fine wine grapes and styles.
3. The winery occupies an elegant and historic 159 year old building.
4. Our wine tasting experience is interactive.

The sense of taste is very individual, so we tailor the tasting to each guest—an interactive process. On our Tasting Guide, we have 20 distinctly different wines: red, white, and rosé; dry to sweet; grapes sourced locally and from fine AVAs; and single varietals and blends. You’ll be guided based on your interest and sense of adventure to select up to 7 different wines.
Do you know the “Seven Ss,” why the wine glass matters, how to pair wine with food, how to serve a particular wine, or any matter concerning the fine wine experience? No reason to be shy or intimidated by wine at Captain’s Walk. We’re all about enjoying wine and sharing the experience with you. In future newsletters and blogs, we will continue our interaction and explore your wine interests in greater depth.
