Von Stiehl Winery Wins Tasters Guild International Medals

Von Stiehl Winery in Algoma just received six medals from Tasters Guild International. Both gold medal awards were presented to wines made from Wisconsin fruit. Doc Stiehl’s Cherry Bounce, a sweet and smooth concoction of cherry wine and cherry brandy distilled from von Stiehl’s cherry wine was the first to receive a gold in the $30 class. The high-alcohol bounce is produced from Door County cherries grown by Seaquist Orchards in Sister Bay, and is aged in red wine barrels for six months prior to release. Barrels help to smooth out the high alcohol, which comes in at 20.5 percent.

The second gold was awarded to von Stiehl Apple Icing. The ice wine is produced from fruit grown at Hillside Apples in Kewaunee County.

Silver medals were awarded to two new dry red wines, Zinfandel and Union, blueberry wine, and a new French-hybrid oak barrel-fermented Chardonnay.

The winery is located at 115 Navarino St., Algoma, and is open seven days a week. For more information visit or call 920.487.5208.
