Cozy up with Your Favorite Wines

December 2, 2019 by Molly Schroeder
We love to spread holiday cheer with you and your loved ones. How can we not be cheery and bright when we are surrounded by great customers and great wine? There is a joyous warmth throughout the month. That is why this December we will be featuring a wine, perfect for all gatherings, Riverside Red! The perfect wine to spread holiday cheer. Riverside Red is an easy-going blend of Cabernet Franc and Zinfandel grapes. Notes of bright fruit, vanilla and black licorice yield to balanced tannins and a structured mouthfeel.
This amazing wine is happiest when paired with anything from the meat aisle, from barbecue pork ribs, leg of lamb or a big, hearty meal. Enjoy with bold soups, as well as your favorite kind of pizza. A perfect wine to accompany the holiday season! So take a break from your holiday shopping and stress during December and receive a complimentary sample of Riverside Red with your tasting.
While you are at Captain’s Walk, bring your holiday shopping list! We will help you find the perfect gifts for your family and friends, so you can just sit back and enjoy your wine.
See you soon!
~Cheers

Bring the Title to Your Town

November 1, 2019 by Molly Schroeder

The legendary home of the green and gold is only a short drive from Captain’s Walk Winery. The excitement on and around game days in Green Bay is palpable, not only at the winery but around town, which is why there is no better place to be than Titletown. That is why this November we will be featuring our celebratory Titletown Moscato!
This is a fruity effervescent wine with intense orange, guava, and passion fruit aromas. The secret to pairing any wine with food is a balance. Titletown Moscato is sweet, so ideally you should pair it with foods possessing opposite flavor profiles-spicy, sour, salty, bitter. Titletown Moscato is perfect with appetizers, sweet brunch dishes, dessert, and alone as an aperitif.
Stop in during November and receive a complimentary sample of Titletown Moscato with your tasting. Bring the sweet taste of victory home with you to enjoy during the next big game!
While you are at Captain’s Walk, get ahead of the holiday buying rush too! We will help you find the perfect gifts for your family and friends, so you can just sit back and enjoy your wine while everyone else is stressing out.
See you soon!
~Cheers

Happy Fall Y’all

October 2, 2019 by Molly Schroeder
Happy Fall Y’all
The leaves are starting to turn and we know your sweaters and scarfs have migrated to the front of your closet.
Since the warm sunny days will be “disappearing”, we wanted to feature Captain’s Walk Winery’s most popular dessert-style wine, Disappearing Treasure.
It is a perfect union of late harvest Riesling and Gewurztraminer that displays mellow flavors of pear, honey, melon, and peach. It is meant to be celebrated and treasured.
What is a late harvest wine? Late harvest wines are made from grapes that are left on the vine even after they’ve reached their peak ripeness. These grapes become sweeter over time as the sugar content becomes more concentrated. Try a late harvest blend with a lemon pound cake or a crème brûlée. Also, enjoy a wonderful balance with creamy light cheeses like Mascarpone.
We will be offering complimentary samples of Disappearing Treasure with a tasting during October. Treat yourself this October with a wine that will disappear once you open it.
See you soon!
~Cheers

Sangria and Salsa Stand

October 1, 2019 by Donna McVey

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 and Salsa

When is the Sangria and Salsa available?

Every Saturday starting June 6th, you’ll be able to find handmade sangria being served between 11 AM and 2 PM.  This event is rain or shine! If there’s a chance of inclement weather we will serve our Sangria & Salsa in our Bistro.

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

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 Downtown Green Bay Farmer’s Market to 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!

Feels like Fall at Captain’s Walk

September 3, 2019 by Molly Schroeder
Forget the Pumpkin Spice Lattes and opt for a glass of wine as the days get cooler and the nights become a little longer. Wine is the best way to unwind after a long day. This is the time of year when the vineyard changes colors and grapes start to produce their sugars in preparation for harvest.
To celebrate the harvest season, we look forward to Wet Whistle Wine Fest taking place September 13th and 14th in Algoma, Wisconsin. Wet Whistle Wine Fest is a wine festival unlike any other and our sister winery, von Stiehl, helps to put it on. As a bonus, Captain’s Walk Titletown Moscato will be available to purchase. At this year’s festival, we hope to see you enjoy wine, music, and friends of new and old, all while helping to raise funds for the Community Improvement of Algoma.
Our September featured wine is Fumé Blanc. This dry white wine greets your nose with the aromas of toffee, rose blossom, and caramel apple. An incredibly full and juicy wine with flavors of pineapple, gooseberries, and butterscotch. Finishing with cleansing notes of citrus and lemongrass. This barrel-aged Sauvignon Blanc is great with white fish, shucked oysters, and light foods. Filet of Sole, breaded and fried with a tartar sauce, is a great match. Additionally, cheeses such as Montamoré or a Bellavitano are perfectly paired. Stop in all month long to try a free sample of Fumé Blanc with your tasting.
Lastly, we will be holding our next Glass to Gallery this coming Sunday, September 8th. We still have room for more painters. The cost is $35 per painter and that includes equipment and supplies. Please call the winery at (920) 431-WALK (9255) to sign up or our events page for more details.
See you soon!
~Cheers

More Summer To Go

August 7, 2019 by Molly Schroeder
Happy August!
The Packers season has started and the kids will soon go back to school, but that doesn’t mean warm sunny days are behind
us. We hope you have been able to enjoy nature, dance to live music and relax
with your friends and family lakeside, poolside, or fireside.
While you are enjoying your free time and festivals, keep your eyes peeled for Captain’s Walk wines! Our Crimson Moscato will be available in the Wine Garden at the Wisconsin State Fair. Plus, Green Bay’s ArtStreet taking place August 23 to 25 will be featuring some of our wines as well.
With the continued grilling and tailgate parties to come, we have decided to spotlight Captain’s White as our featured wine for August. With aromas of rose blossoms and nectar, Captain’s White is perfectly paired with summer! The balance of sweetness and acidity make this wine a very food-friendly option. Enjoy Captain’s White with a light salad using fresh seasonal fruits and veggies to enhance the layers of tropical fruit, white peach, pineapple, and pear. It also balances savory flavors incredibly well, making it a perfect accompaniment to chicken or seafood hot off the grill. Stop in and try a complimentary sample of Captain’s White during the month of August.
We hope you have an August full of sunshine, relaxation, and wine!
Cheers!

Wine Down Wednesday Featuring Sweet Mana

September 25, 2018 by Donna McVey

Wine with chocolate and fruit plateWhich came first, the chocolate or the wine?  If you’re anything like us, your history with both pleasures simply goes back too far to remember.  Wine and chocolate are hands down two of the greatest pleasures in life; when paired together properly, the experience can be out of this world.  Captain’s Walk Winery has paired the enjoyment of chocolate and wine with the experience of shopping at a feel-good spa and beach shack boutique.

Captain’s Walk Winery has brought the boutique to you!  Sweet Mana Boutique will be here on Wednesday September 26th from 3:00 pm – 7:00pm.  While you’re at the Winery, enjoy our special wine and truffle pairing.

  • $15 Wine & Truffle Pairing – 3 2oz. flights of our beautiful wines paired with gourmet truffles.
  • 10% off all Captain’s Walk purchases.

Wine and Chocolate pairings are a fun, creative way to enjoy delicious complimentary flavors.  Savor the perfect piece of chocolate – melting in your mouth then sipping a fine vintage.

In order to help prepare for this lovely event, we thought it’s best to share some of the basics regrading a wine and chocolate pairing.

Basics of Wine and Chocolate Pairings

The most basic rule is to try to match the sweetness of the wine with the chocolate.  Choose wines that are not too dry if possible (unless you are pairing with dark chocolate).  Darker chocolates pair well with robust wines. Ultimately, the key to a successful chocolate and wine pairing is having the two compliment one another.

Equally important, is to enjoy the pairing slowly. We recommend first enjoying a taste the wine, then ask you to clear your palate, then taste the chocolate.  Once you have tried each separately then taste them slowly together, wine then chocolate and repeat.  Let the pairings coat your mouth completely so that you can taste the amplified flavors.
