Futures Wine Tasting

February 24, 2019 by Rayanne Racine

Futures Tasting will take place at our Vintage Table.

Futures Wine Tasting is for those who love an exclusive wine tasting experience or for those without patience!

Ever wondered what your wine tasted like before it reached optimal tasting? At futures, you will sample wines that are either not quite ready and some that have a few years before they are up to our standards.

During the Futures Wine Tasting, you will have tastes of our various Captain’s Walk Wines before anyone else, because they will be new wines to Captain’s Walk! Wines being sampled will be available for purchase at a discounted rate allowing you to have access to these wines before anyone else!

This exclusive tasting will take place at our vintage table, near where our barrels age.

Sessions will be 12 pm, 1 pm, 2 pm and 3 pm. Spots are limited with each session, having a maximum of 14 people per time slot. Call us at 920-431-9255 to sign up!

Last year, attendees sampled Fumé Blanc, a Cab/Malbec Blend and some other great selections. Each year different wines will be sampled, so stay tuned to our Facebook page to view hints on what will be poured!

Be sure to mark your bottles with the date purchased. Also, write comments as you taste them as to how they change, you’d be surprised on how much change the wine undergoes while in the bottle. This will help you to determine when they are at their peak condition. There should be a vintage date on the label, but that doesn’t directly tell you the details of the wine aging. We hope to fill you in on all of this over wine at the Futures Wine Tasting in February.

Looking for a place to stay? Find plenty of hotels options in Green Bay. We recommend staying at either Quality Inn & Suites Downtown or St. Brendan’s Inn if you’d like to be within walking distance.

If you have any questions or would like to reserve your spot, please call us at 920-431-9255 or email us at info@captainswalkwinery.com.
