The tour was very interesting and informative. And the wine is exceptional. We left with a case of several of our favorites.

Wet Whistle Wine Festival

Now in its 11th year, the Wet Whistle Wine Festival storms Legion Park to celebrate wine with award-winning vintages, live music, and general revelry. Saturday’s activities kick off with a fine-art show, followed by tours and wine tastings. Specialty foods partner up with the wide range of varietals, and bands Giv’n Up the Ghost and In Black ‘n’ White will serenade festival-goers more effectively than the California Raisins, who would most likely be too terrified to sing. A celebrity grape stomp kicks off a suite of similar competitions, with heats taking place throughout the day and culminating in a final grand grape stomp-off at the close of the day’s festivities.

About Von Stiehl Winery

While fermenting and aging, von Stiehl Winery's 25 vintages reside in underground limestone caverns that date back to the Civil War era. Brothers Aric and Brad Schmiling tap into their experience as a chemist and a theater engineer, respectively, to maintain these facilities, along with an air of historic gravity expected of Wisconsin’s oldest licensed winery.

Visits to the storied winery, which appears 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, when sprawling grass lawns grant panoramic views of Lake Michigan. Regardless of season, wine drinkers can always head to the winery's online store. Here they can find French- and American-style blends, such as a gold-medal-winning cabernet sauvignon, a brandy-fortified cherry wine, and a merlot aged in French oak, all of which woo palates more gently than Cyrano de Bergerac in a pillow fight.
