Starting tomorrow March 25, Captain’s Walk Winery will only be open for curb-side pick up Tuesday through Saturday from 11 am to 5 pm and closed Sunday and Monday until further notice.

 

Wine can still be ordered online and shipped via UPS. We encourage you to pre-order wine to be picked up by calling (920) 431-9255. You can place your order over the phone and then give us a call when you arrive at Captain’s Walk Winery. We will then place your ordered wine outside our front door with your name on it for you to pick up.

 

We are taking these extreme measures to reduce any risk to our customers, employees, and our community. We thank you for your understanding and support through this difficult time. We look forward to opening our tasting room to all of our amazing customers as soon as we can!

Our Response to COVID-19

March 13, 2020 by Molly Schroeder
To our Captain’s Walk friends and family,
In response to the coronavirus (COVID-19), we want to share with you the steps that we have taken to keep our employees, customers, and products safe. We are upgrading sanitation practices in the tasting room, which means additional, more frequent cleaning and sanitizing. We also have encouraged our employees to stay home at the slightest sign of illness.
During this time, our tasting rooms will remain open, and currently scheduled events will still take place. If you visit our tasting room, please know that we are going above and beyond in our cleaning procedures to help ensure the safest possible environment for guests and staff. We will continue to follow the CDC guidelines and adjust our protocols as the situation develops.
Let’s all work together to be safe, healthy, and happy as we move forward during this challenging time!
Sincerely,
Your Captain’s Walk Winery Family

March Captain’s Notes

March 3, 2020 by Molly Schroeder
Have you come out of hibernation yet? If not, it’s time to embrace that spring is almost here, as the first official day is March 19th. Although we will probably still have a big spring snowfall, you can still enjoy each sunny day with your favorite glass of Captain’s Walk wine or hard cider. As the season changes, we will also be changing up our hard ciders. Watch our Facebook page for announcements of when our spring seasonal hard ciders will be released.
During March, we will be featuring one of our staple wines, Cabernet Sauvignon. This becomes an instant favorite of our red wine drinkers. It has a cacophony of aromas including jam, toffee and cigar box, all tied together with a hint of toasty oak and mocha. The wine is full of concentrated fruit flavors of currant, boysenberry and ripe plum.
If you’re looking for the ideal food pairing for Cabernet Sauvignon, you don’t have to look very far. Almost any red meat, especially served rare, is going to do the trick. Seasonings that tend to flatter the wine are garlic, rosemary, mint and porcini mushrooms. A simple pairing with blue cheese, Gouda or aged cheddar would also be successful. Stop in all month long for a free sample of Captain’s Walk Cabernet Sauvignon with a paid tasting.
See you soon!
~Cheers

The weather might be cold and there is still snow on the ground, but February means we are one month closer to spring. In fact, it is believed that Valentine’s Day evolved from the Roman festival of Lupercalia that was held mid-February. The festival was to welcome spring and fertility, at least that is what our Google search told us, and you know that everything that you find on the internet is correct, right?
This February, in honor of Valentine’s Day, we are featuring one of our sister winery’s, top sellers, von Stiehl Naughty Girl. Elegant yet sassy, she dances on your palate with the grace of a full-bodied red and the racy excitement of fresh black raspberries. Layers of dark fruit and curvaceous tannins lead into a smooth and exquisite finish of this very versatile red. Enjoy with roasted foods, grilled foods, robust cheeses, and sweet foods. Try making a reduction with this wine or add as part of ‘the liquid’ in a sauce recipe. Pour it into a big glass to accompany a big juicy blue cheeseburger.
Speaking of a great wine pairing, you need to try the seven Round Robin pairings throughout Green Bay and De Pere. If you complete the Round Robin you will receive a Captain’s Walk logo Riedel crystal glass and have the chance to win other prizes.
Stop in all month long for a free sample of Naughty Girl with a paid tasting. Plus, our hard cider menu is always changing with unique hard ciders created right here at Captain’s Walk.
See you soon!
~Cheers

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!

Notes of bright fruit, vanilla and black licorice yield to balanced tannins and a structured mouthfeel.

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.

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

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!

Unexplainable glasses breaking, untouched books falling off the shelves, and mysterious footsteps have all been witnessed at Captain’s Walk Winery in Green Bay. The eeriest phenomenon of all is that the lights flicker every day between 2:35 and 2:45 pm, even with daylight savings time.

Join the Paper Valley Paranormal team at Captain’s Walk on Tuesday, July 16th starting at 7:00 pm for an after hour viewing party. The Paper Valley Paranormal team will be explaining all of their findings along with their proof. You never know who else might show up while you are there.
