There’s a lot happening in our neighborhood on Saturday, June 17! A combination of car and wine enthusiasts will be roaming the road just in front of Captain’s Walk.
Some options for you…
•St. Pepin samples on the front porch from 11 am to 2 pm.
•Salsa and Sangria at our tiki stand in front of the winery from 11 am to 1 pm.
•Automobile Gallery Inaugural Car Show from 11 am to 2 pm.
After taking in the sights and sounds of the car show, and having your fill on salsa and sangria, step inside the Walk for the St. Pepin Release Party.
We’ll be presenting St. Pepin with savory appetizers. While inside, sign up for a tour of our newly decorated Cellar Tasting Room. In it you’ll find a stock of oak barrels, aging our next generation of vibrant red wines. Our Saturday tours are at 11:30 am and 1:30 pm.
We are excited to bring you this Wisconsin-grown St. Pepin grape. The Seyval hybrid was developed in Minnesota and released in 1986. It is known for a fruitiness similar to what is found in the Riesling variety. Our twist on it includes the addition of oak elements through our small batch barrel fermentation. You might find similarities to a traditional Chardonnay.
Note the impressions left on our winemaker:
An exciting wine laced with rain fresh notes of pineapple, guava and vanilla almond biscotti. Thirst quenching flavors awaken the taste buds with a burst of apple, loquat and white peach. A palate cleansing finish of fresh lemon. Barrel-fermented and aged for four months. 175 cases produced.
Captain’s Walk Small Batch wines allow the savvy wine taster to experience small, regional tastes. You won’t find these wines on store shelves – we save them just for you at the winery. The small batch series helps us to try out new ideas. Wines that are well-received can eventually show up under our normal label. We’ve celebrated local Door County Marquette grapes, and have explored Tuscan blends. Another guest favorite has been our Fumé Blanc, a barrel fermented Sauvignon Blanc. Chardonnay isn’t the only white that can benefit from barrels! If you have been collecting the small batch series from the beginning, then we are excited to release this new batch for you!
No reservations are needed to attend. Simply visit us in downtown Green Bay on Saturday, June 17. We look forward to sharing the day with you!
