Hard cider is now available at Captain’s Walk Winery. Our vibrant hard cider is made with Kewaunee grown apples and is offered in two varieties—Door County Cherry and Wisconsin Maple. Our Door County Cherry is made with a hint of local Door County montmorency cherries gives a nice subtle balance of sweet to tart. This is Wisconsin in a glass. It is very aromatic with that touch of cherry at the finish. Our Wisconsin Maple has a touch of local 100% pure maple syrup and brown sugar. Sweet and warming for a winter day!
Did you know that a brewery can’t make hard cider without a winery license? You’ll often find plenty of beer with apple flavoring in 12 ounce bottles on the store shelf. Don’t let that fool you! Real hard cider is made from apples by a winery. Ours is made from apples grown on the door peninsula at Hillside Apples. For a true hard cider, come in and try ours.
Hard Cider is best fresh, and doesn’t need time to age. That’s why ours is served out of a keg. The bad news is that you can’t get it in a bottle. The good news is that you can get it on tap in a glass, or we’ll put a half-gallon into a beer growler for you to take home!
Enjoy a 6oz pour at the winery for only $3.00. Carry out growlers are $20.00 for the first fill and $15.00 for refills of the same growler.
The first batch is disappearing fast, so come try some today!

The Captain’s Walk wine barbecue is coming on August 16th. What to eat? Simple. We have one offering and you already know what it is, BARBECUE!!! What to drink is entirely up to you. May we suggest trying our new Green Bay wine release, Riverside Red?
Riverside Red is an easy going blend of red vinifera grapes. Notes of bright fruit, vanilla, and black licorice yield to balanced tannins and a structured mouthfeel. Perfect accompaniment to an outdoor concert (Wine Barbecue!) or a cruise down the river. 150 cases of this small batch wine were produced.
Sample in our wine tasting room to find a favorite, or party outside with a glass of wine. The Abler and Bernico Duo will be playing from 3 pm. to 7 pm. This band knows all the favorite classics! There is no cover charge or admission to the wine barbecue and it’s all à la carte. We’ll be in a tent so the event is rain or shine. Taste, buy, and enjoy at your own pace.

Join us for the official release of two or our new Small Batch Series wines! Enjoy the rich and fruity red that our Cuvée Trois offers. Or if the taste of sweet, fresh berry notes sounds more appealing then perhaps our Marquette Rosé is more your style. Taste these wines with some small food pairings while checking out all the new things that Captain’s Walk has to offer!

Ever notice that Captain’s Walk isn’t as stuffy as some of the other snobby wineries and wine stores? That’s because wine is part of every day life for our crew at the winery. We enjoy some good wine talk, but for us the experience of consuming wine is more important. So come have some fun with us on Saturday, May 10, at the Fundue Wine Fest in downtown Green Bay.
What to eat? Simple. We have one offering and you already know what it is. What to drink is entirely up to you. Sample in our tasting room to find a favorite, or find the secret passageway to our vintage tasting room in the cellars and enjoy some wines that are no longer in our tasting room. Then return to the party outside for your glass of wine.
The Annie Rose Band will be playing from 2 pm. to 6 pm. This band knows how to rock! There is no cover charge or admission to the event. It’s all à la carte. Taste, buy, and enjoy at your own pace.

For a place like Captain’s Walk Winery, 345 S. Adams St., Green Bay, it’s an important chance to put the focus on their dinner menu and food items — not just their signature wines.
“We actually just started our commercial kitchen recently within the last year and we wanted to help promote the fact that we do serve food here,” said Jocelyn Ehlert, the event coordinator and assistant manager at Captain’s Walk. “We thought it was a great involvement. We’re definitely hoping to get new customers; we’re looking forward to seeing some new faces and even some old faces that haven’t seen our menu yet.”
