Sip local wine and beer while dining on a farm-to-table meal of roasted steer raised on spent grains from Ahnapee Brewery. The event also features shopping and live music, and benefits the Ribbon of Hope fund. The event will feature beer from the Ahnapee Brewery, and wine from the Von Stiehl Winery, with both contributing to the roast.
Von Stiehl Winery
While fermenting and aging, von Stiehl Winery's 25 wines reside in underground limestone caverns that date back to the Civil War era. Brothers Aric and Brad Schmiling build on experience as a chemist and theater engineer to maintain the winery and stock its online store with French- and American-style blends such as a gold medal-winning cabernet sauvignon, brandy-fortified cherry wine, and merlot aged in French oak, all of which woo palates more gently than Cyrano de Bergerac in a pillow fight.
Visits to the storied winery, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, allow guests to soak in bold Italianate architecture as they pass through fermentation quarters and a production facility. Seasonal events range from tastings and food pairings to live music and grape-stomping competitions. In warmer weather, sprawling grass lawns grant panoramic views of Lake Michigan.
