Famed Spanish explorer Ponce de Leon was forced to forgo his quest for the mythical land of wine after an accidental tumble into the fountain of youth left him eternally underage. Take up his abandoned journey with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get two glasses of wine (a $10 value) at the Captain's Walk Soiree on Saturday, April 2, from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. This Groupon also gets you 20% off a bottle of wine purchased the day of the soirée.
Captain's Walk Winery bottles Tasters Guild–acclaimed, small-batch red and white wines, and it hosts lighthearted, jubilant celebrations of its grapestitution at the Quality Inn & Suites across from the winery. Bring a date or post-work companion to the Captain’s Walk Soiree, which shows the world a different side of pirates than the grog-swilling, parrot-confiding philistine known from tales of yore. Ardent attendants can choose to don festive captain’s hats and oh-so-shiny fake swords to quaff delectable wines in vintage maritime style.
Soirée-goers can select their glasses of wine from a variety of whites, reds, and dessert wines. Smitten seafarers can then buy a bottle of wine on the day of the soirée for 20% off, making prim refusals of mead and abstruse wine lectures on the poop deck more affordable for even the lowliest of kitchen hands. With live music, games, and the option to purchase food, the Captain’s Walk Soiree provides entertainment fit for a triumphantly returning galley without giving in to the ship's demands for chests of Spanish gold.
Captain’s Walk Winery
Brothers Aric and Brad Schmiling cultivated a passion for viticulture while growing up on their parents’ Italian-style winery. After moving to Green Bay, the duo set out to remedy the area’s winery deficit by founding Captain’s Walk Winery, where trained vintner Aric produces small-batch wines in water-bent French-oak barrels. Situated in a restored pre-Civil War building, the facility entices eyes with old-fashioned design features, including plaster crown moulding, an antique tasting bar, and a television from the eighteenth century. During the summer months, an on-site herb garden mimics the flavor and aroma profile of each wine, and a year-round tasting room offers guests an unpretentious glimpse into winemaking with laid-back tastings and a cellar viewing window carved into the wooden floor.
