What a glorious time of year when Girl Scout cookies appear. Now that most of you have acquired your stash of cookies, it’s time to get smart about consuming this annual allotment. The only thing that could make these once a year delicacies more exciting is if we pair them WITH WINE! That’s exactly what Captain’s Walk Winery has done for you. Join us for a Girl Scout Cookie & Wine Pairing Flight. This is a unique tasting experience where you will enjoy five different wines, perfectly paired with five varieties of the Girl Scout cookies we all know and love!
This is a drop-in tasting. Reserved ticket holders are welcome to come anytime from 3-7 pm on May 17th to enjoy their wine and cookies. The flight will consist of five, 2 oz pours of each carefully chosen Captain’s Walk wine, paired with a different Girl Scout cookie. To sweeten the event, we’ll provide recommendations on wines we offer to compliment all eight cookie varieties, preparing you to continue your tasting fun at home.
The flight will feature:
- Shortbread Cookies & Chardonnay
- Thin Mints Cookies & von Stiehl’s Petite Sirah
- S’mores Cookies & Naughty Girl
- Peanut Butter Patties & Titletown Moscato
- Caramel deLites & Disappearing Treasure
For the first pairing, we will feature our Chardonnay. Its creamy and buttery texture make it a perfect match for the delicate-tasting Shortbread cookie. Next, we have selected von Stiehl’s, our sister winery that sits along Lake Michigan, Petite Sirah. This vibrant, full-bodied wine resounds with deep layers of dark fruit flavors that pair well with the oh-so popular Thin Mints. Followed by Naughty Girl, our semi-sweet red that’s always a crowd pleaser, Naughty Girl’s intense raspberry flavors are heightened when paired with one of the newest Girl Scout Cookies, S’mores. Moving a bit sweeter, our Titletown Moscato, with a fruity effervescence, sparkles when enjoyed with Peanut Butter Patties. We finish the flight with our sweet dessert style wine, Disappearing Treasure. As the name boasts, it’s hard to keep your glass full, when paired with Caramel deLites. Both treasures will disappear in one sitting.
Captain’s Walk Winery loves Girl Scout cookies and supports the scouts who supply us with them. That is why Captain’s Walk will be donating 15% of our total sales on May 17th to The Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes.
Tickets are $15.00 and can be reserved by calling us at 920-431-9255. Act fast; we have a limited number of tickets due to space!
Keep in mind, this is an adult only event!
