The Sangria Stand is Back for the Summer!

June 9, 2016 by PJ Koehler

Summer is a time for relaxing, basking in the sun, and sipping sangria in the company of people you like. So do it at a place you know you love: Captain’s Walk Winery! Our Sangria and Salsa Saturdays have always been a big hit, and this summer it’s forecasted to be the same!

Come taste our fantastic new recipe for a tart and fruity rosé sangria to be paired with homemade salsa served from our stand out on the front lawn.

Sangria Sign

When is the Sangria and Salsa available?

Every Saturday starting June 18th you’ll be able to find handmade sangria being served between 11 AM and 1 PM.  If the weather’s good then so are we, since you’ll be able to snag an awesome deal!

An order from the stand gets you all of the delicious items below:

  • One carafe (one liter) of our Summer Sangria;
  • One basket of chips and homemade salsa

All of that for $12.00! This fruit-filled drink we feature is a summer favorite with many and appeals to a variety of palates! With hints of tart fruit, sweet wine, and the classic addition of fresh fruit, you’ll have to taste it for yourself and find out exactly what everyone is so excited about.

Our salsa is also a long-time summer special that changes just enough every year to keep it interesting. What you can expect is a mixture of tomatoes, tomatillos, cilantro, onion, and roasted garlic. What’s our secret ingredient, you ask? We can’t tell you, but you’re welcome to come get some salsa and see if you can figure it out!

From the Farmer’s Market to the Captain’s Walk, it’s an easy hop, skip, and jump from browsing to relaxing on Saturday mornings. Join the Captain, and raise a glass to summer!

2016 International Tasters Guild Medal Winners

May 11, 2016 by PJ Koehler

Tasters Guild Medal

The final results of the 2016 International Tasters Guild Wine Competition are in!

The 2016 International Tasters Guild Competition is a highly competitive environment: over 1,600 wines from ten countries and 36 U.S. states and provinces. Out of all of these wines, only 72 were awarded Double Gold!

Double Gold Medal Winner 2012 Cabernet SauvignonThe 2014 Captain’s White, 2013 Chardonnay, and 2015 Sauvignon Blanc were all awarded silver medals in their respective categories. What was most exciting though was the very high honor of being a part of that 4% of Double Gold winners with our own Double Gold winner: the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon!

How does a wine win the title of Double Gold?  Dana Alexander, a columnist for the publisher New York Wines, explains how the process of a wine competition is approached in the article “How a Wine Competition Works.” The author explains at length how there are different types of competitions in the wine community and how awards are given based on the individual nominations of the judges within a collective panel. Essentially, each judge gives a certain number of points based on the same facets of wine: “color, clarity, aroma, bouquet, taste, aftertaste, and overall quality.” (Alexander)

In a separate article, “What Does a Gold Medal Mean Anyway?”, columnist Greg Walter explains the impact of winning a Double Gold medal and why the award is not only a positive for the wine itself but also for the winery!

Captain’s Walk Winery can’t wait to share this fantastic wine with you the next time you come in, so make sure to ask for a sample of the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon and “taste” what all the hype is about!

This Cheese Event is Going to Be “Wheel-y” Big!

April 12, 2016 by PJ Koehler

There are things in life that just go together, like peanut butter and jelly. Or sand and surf. And don’t forget the Green and Gold! Here at Captain’s Walk Winery, the two things that really go well together are wine and cheese. We just can’t get enough of them, and we know you can’t either!

That’s why we’re excited to be bringing a unique cheese to the winery for a special event!

Where Cheese is the Champion and Wisconsin a Winner

On March 9th, the World Champion Cheese Contest came to a close with many winners from all over Wisconsin. One in particular, the Pleasant Ridge Reserve, placed 16th out of 2,955 entries! Knowing how much our customers love trying new things, we ordered an entire wheel.

That’s right. We’re going to have 10 pounds of delicious, award-winning Pleasant Ridge Reserve crafted from milk only produced by grass-fed cows right here at Captain’s Walk. And it’s waiting for you to try it!

With that said, we’d like to invite you and all your cheese-loving friends to the following…

Wheel-y” Big Cheese Event!
April 23rd from Noon until 6:00 PM

We’ll be hand-slicing the Pleasant Ridge Reserve for you to sample. If you like it, we’ll slice a whole wedge off the wheel for you. Take home and enjoy with a meal, or maybe just pair it with one of our wines! Whatever you do, the only requirement is to savor it!

Somethings in life just go together. Like a good time and Captain’s Walk Winery.

So check out the details below, and if you like what you see call to save yourself a seat at this fun summer event! Tickets are $40/person and include:

1 Pair of wine glasses to paint

Paint supplies

2 Glasses of wine to drink


If you’re concerned about whether or not there’s an instructor there to help, don’t worry! Staff from Paintin’ Pottery and Captain’s Walk will be on hand to show you examples of different wine glass art. Booklets showing a variety of patterns and other styles of painting will be available as well. But remember, they’re yours to create and keep! Make sure they’re special to you!

Tap into Two New Beers from Ahnapee Brewery this Season

February 29, 2016 by PJ Koehler

The creator of hand-crafted beers that can now be found in our Bistro!

March brings more than just a break from dreary winter weather, it also brings a great opportunity to experience a taste of new beers. Thanks to the hard work of our sister-establishment Ahnapee Brewery, we now have two very delicious ales on tap just ready to be tapped into!

The “Fun Guy” Beer

The Fun Guy Ale is Ahnapee Brewery’s spring seasonal and just in time! Early mushroom season in the Northwoods is right around the corner.

  • a deep copper to brown color;
  • low to medium hop flavor and aroma;
  • medium bitterness (19 IBU); and
  • medium body.

The roasted malt has caramel- and chocolate-like characteristics of medium intensity. These characteristics can be found in both flavor and aroma. Malt notes are complimented by the earthy, nutty, buttery, and meaty flavors. The somewhat smoky flavors of mushrooms such as morels, porcini, lobster, and oyster enhance and round out the taste. They also explain the pun of the brew’s clever name of “Fun Guy”!

This is a Nick Calaway original that you don’t want to miss!

The “Little Soldier” Beer

The Little Soldier is an American Amber Ale named after the original Ahnapee Brewery brewmaster: Henry Schmiling. A short-statured man, Henry served in the Civil War and was brewmaster of Ahnapee from 1868 to 1886.

  • light copper to light brown color;
  • balanced caramel malt and American hops from aroma to finish;
  • medium body carries a light fruitiness;
  • medium hop bitterness (35 IBU);
  • medium flavor; and
  • medium aroma.

This ale is a truly fine American-style session beer, perfect for any occasion!

With these new beers on tap, our beer-lovers will have no problem finding something new to enjoy at Captain’s Walk Winery. So stop in and enjoy the taste of fresh beer in our cozy bistro, and don’t forget to take some home with you in one of our Anhapee Brewery growlers!

Wine Bottle Photograph of Riverside Red being released at the wine barbecueThe 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.
