Wet Whistle Wine Fest« Back to Events
Algoma’s Von Stiehl Winery hosts its annual Wet Whistle Wine Fest the weekend of September 15-16, 2017 this year. Wet Whistle Wine Fest offers award-winning wines, a grape stomp, heritage foods, & live music!
It isn’t the 2,000 visitors smiling all the time that’s weird. Nor is it the trombonist standing in a grape-filled barrel while playing an amazing riff. Nor the people with sticky purple feet dancing onstage. This is normal at a wine fest and to be expected. What’s odd at Wet Whistle Wine Fest are all the costumes. They don’t ask anyone to show up dressed as wine bottles, or nuns who smoke cigarettes while downing Naughty Girl wine. And these are just a couple examples of Wet Whistle Wine Fest goings-on that weren’t made up. Don’t take their word for it… come to the wine fest and see it for yourself!
This Wet Whistle Wine Fest is a fundraiser for the Community Improvement of Algoma, Algoma Fire and Rescue.
