As some of you may know, we are friends with the good folks at the Von Stiehl Winery in Algoma. Their wines were the first we carried in Stumpjack and have continued to be very popular with our friends and customers. This is just a brief shout out to Von Stiehl (VS) and a raise of the wine glass in recognition of their continued success and award winning wines. At this past year’s Wine Tasters Guild Competition Von Stiehl wines won several medals.
In a competition that judges a couple thousand wines the results were:
VS Cherry Kirche, was awarded a Double Gold Medal.
VS Stomey Creek Blush, Golf Medal (becoming the first wine made with grapes grown in Door County to win a Gold Medal).
VS Naughty Girl, Bronze Medal.
VS Apple Wine, Bronze Medal.
VS Chardonnay, Double Gold Medal.
VS Riesling, Silver Medal.
VS Cabernet Sauvignon, Silver Medal.
Also, Von Stiehl's sister winery, Captain's Walk Winery (CW) in Green Bay won several awards in the same Taster's Guild Competitions:
CW Riesling, Bronze Medal.
CW Captain's White, Bronze Medal.
CW Sauvignon Blanc, Bronze Medal.
CW Sangiovese, Gold Medal.
CW Merlot, Gold Medal.
We carry a mix of Von Stiehl and Captain's Walk wines, and right now, for Valentine's Day we have the VS Valentine's Day White Zinfandel Love Wine. Looking for something for your sweetie? How about a card, a rose, and a bottle of VS Love wine?
