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!

Marquette Rosé Release Party

March 22, 2018 by Rayanne Racine

 

Marquette Rosé Release at Captain's Walk

 Come celebrate with us, the release of our Marquette Rosé!

 Impressions from our Wine-Maker:

 Marquette Rosé, a first of its kind made from dark-skinned red Marquette grapes, entices the palate with sweet and tangy strawberry flavors. This grape has been grown locally in Door County at the Stony Creek Vineyard since 2006. It is a cold-hardy variety that buds early in the season. Developed at the University of Minnesota, this grandchild of Pinot Noir is a complex hybrid with black currant, cherry, and spice notes, excellent for rosés and medium-bodied dry reds.

 

The Marquette Rosé pairs well with poultry, seafood, pork, spicy dishes, salad, Asian, and fresh fruit, which makes this wine a great go to rosé!

At the release party, you will enjoy a complimentary tasting of our Marquette Rosé, free appetizers and discounts on glasses of Marquette Rosé.

While you are at Captain’s Walk, feel free to order from our Bistro. Our menu is online for easy access, so you can plan your night before even getting here!

No reservations are needed to attend this Thursday night tasting. Simply visit us on March 22nd from 4 to 7 pm. Anticipate enjoying light appetizers and some great deals!

Chaider Release Party

December 14, 2017 by Rayanne Racine

Come celebrate with us the release of our newest hard cider – Chaider!

Note the impressions left on our cider-maker:
Chaider a semi-sweet cider made with our 2017 proprietary blend of Northeast Wisconsin grown apples. It is slowly infused with Chai spices, a mixture of aromatic Indian spices. Fresh ginger root, black tea, cardamon, cinnamon, cloves and peppercorns. It can be enjoyed cold and fresh or warmed as a latte.

 

At the release party, you will enjoy a complimentary tasting of our Chaider,  free appetizers and discounts on growler fills and glasses of Chaider. We will be serving the Chaider warm and available as a latte!

 

If you have been enjoying our hard ciders from the beginning, then we are excited to release this limited batch for you! While visiting, be sure to taste some of our other ciders on tap. No reservations are needed to attend this Thursday night tasting. Simply visit us on December 14th from 4 to 7 pm. Anticipate enjoying light appetizers and some great deals!

 

Captain’s Walk Limited Release Ciders, such as our Chaider, are experimental batches that allow the taster to experience small, regional flavors. You won’t find these ciders anywhere else. Since our batches are so small, we only serve our hard cider on tap. You can always take home a growler, but they are not available in a bottle or can. That means they haven’t spent time bouncing around on a delivery truck. They are fermented in our cellars and served right upstairs. They sell out quickly, which is fun for us! We get to consistently create new batches for you to experience.

 

We look forward to sharing the evening with you and to hear your thoughts on our Chaider! Cheers!

Saint’gria Fundraiser

September 21, 2017 by Rayanne Racine

St. John Island is among one of the many islands affected by Category 5 Hurricane Irma. Soon after it got hit by Category 5 Maria! Located in the Caribbean sea, it is the smallest of the Virgin Islands. Unlike other islands, St. John hasn’t been getting much attention. PJ has a personal attachment to St. John, so he thought it would be best for us to find a way we can help!

So, we put on our thinking caps and came up with a very clever Saint’gria Fundraiser. We will be donating to St. John Rescue, $5 for every growler, and $1 for every glass of our tart and fruity Saint’gria (sangria).

This fundraiser will continue until supplies last.

Stop on by, show some support and make a difference!
