Wollersheim Winery & Wollersheim Distillery

Port Wine Celebration

Saturday, January 25, 2020 | 10am – 5pm

Take a break from Wisconsin’s winter! Join us to celebrate our Port wines. Enjoy music, light food, and insights on Port wine from Winemaker Philippe.

Port Tour & Wine Tasting
Take a self-guided tour at your own pace to see how our Port wines are made in our modern fermentation facilities and where wine ages in barrels in our historic underground aging cellars. Along the way, enjoy tastes of the Red Port, White Port and our sister winery’s, Cedar Creek Port Rosé. This self-guided tour is complimentary and is offered in lieu of our regular guided tour.

Wine & Food
Food that complements Port wines will be available from our Bistro beginning at 11am. A featured snack plate will highlight a Port-flavored chocolate treat. The snack plates are available to purchase in the bistro.

All of our wines will be available to enjoy by the glass, including our just-released Tawny Port 2014. Additional paid flights featuring estate-grown, dry and sweet wines are available for tasting in the Winery Store.

Winemaker Talks
Winemaker Philippe will share remarks on both our Red Port and White Port, along with our newly released Tawny Port. Talks are scheduled for 11:30am and 2:30pm.

Warm up to the riveting performance of Gin, Chocolate & Bottle Rockets in our upstairs Sugarloaf Room from 12:00pm to 3:45pm. The veteran performers combine forces in a power pop-rock trio, featuring tight three-part harmonies. A little sass, a little sweet and a whole lot of fire.

Stop by the distillery to taste our featured spirits flights or one of our specialty spirits flights. Enjoy our new cocktail, St. Charles Punch, made with our Port and award-winning Press House Brandy or a cocktail from our favorites menu, Apples and Cream made with our Wisconsin Apple Brandy, cherry grenadine and cream soda. Visit and see where all our Wisconsin-made spirits come to life.

Distillery Open House

Saturday, March 7, 2020 | 10 am – 5 pm

Join us for an inside look at our distillery!

Distillery Behind-the-Scenes Guided Walk
Walk behind the scenes with a guide to explore the distillery where you will see our stills, barrel aging room, grain room and our bottling line. This complimentary guided walk runs every 15 minutes and lasts around 30 minutes and will run from 10:15am – 4pm. Please note, we will not be offering winery tours that day.

Cooking with Wine & Spirits
Our very-own Chef Romain will do his first Open House cooking demo. Although Romain is not new to our cooking demos…he started helping with the demos when he was a child. Chef Romain will share tips on cooking with wine and spirits as he prepares tasty dishes to sample featuring our wine and our newly-released Bottled-in-Bond Brandy. Both products will be featured in one demonstration at 11am in our Vineyard Room at the winery.

Winemaker & Distiller
Winemaker Philippe will be on hand to talk with you throughout the day and will answer questions on how the grapevines are doing after the long winter. He may even be one of your guides at the Distillery! Distiller Tom will be in the Still House talking about upcoming releases of spirits and our barrel aging program.

Bottled-in-Bond Brandy
The debut of our first Bottled-in-Bond Brandy will be released at the Open House. Our Bottled-in-Bond Brandy is distilled from Wisconsin white wine and will feature a high percentage of new brandy barrels selected to create a bold and rich 100 proof brandy that will highlight each vintage. Like our Bottled-in-Bond Bourbon, it will feature a Wisconsin sticker with the details of when it was distilled and bottled as well as its age.

Spirits Flight
At the distillery, we offer several flight options of our Wisconsin-grown spirits.

Enjoy one of our many cocktails, including our fan favorite true Wisconsin Brandy Old-Fashioned, made with our Press House Brandy.

Wine Flights
A complimentary wine flight is available, along with additional flights available in our winery store.

During the Open House, our Bistro is open 11am-4pm to enjoy paninis, soups, quiche and desserts. Our wines are also available for purchase to enjoy by the glass.
