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
PS.  FREE SHIPPING on ALL cases of wine ends Thursday, December 5. Start or finish your holiday shopping with just one visit to our online store and not have to spend a cent on shipping for cases of wine.

Every case ships for free! Just use code FreeShipWine at checkout (or mention it on the phone to us) and we will cover the shipping costs! But you have to hurry and order by this Thursday, December 5.

Black Friday Mimosa Brunch

November 29, 2019 by Molly Schroeder

Shopping makes everyone hungry.
Don’t forget to fuel up while you are out catching all of the deals this Black Friday. Stop by Captain’s Walk Winery to recharge with our Black Friday Mimosa Brunch 10 am until 12 pm.
For $8 you can enjoy a Titletown Moscato Mimosa, fresh fruit, and a delicious egg bake. If one mimosa isn’t enough, you can purchase an extra glass for $4. While you are here, you can always purchase wine for those on your list that you just don’t know what to get. Remember, everyone loves wine, especially Captain’s Walk wine.

No need to pre-register, just stop by between Black Friday deals.

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

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!

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!

Our historic home isn’t only loved by our crew, but also Helen (our resident ghost). Join us 7 PM Tuesday, July 16th to see what she had to share with the Paper Valley Paranormal team.
