New attractions being featured at 2nd annual AVA Celebration

Aug. 8, 2013 | 0 comments

With new attractions and a new location, the 2nd Annual "Wisconsin Ledge" American Viticultural Area celebration will be held from 2-6 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 17, at the Trout Springs Winery, 8150 River Road in the town of Morrison in southeast Brown County.

Staged adjacent to the vineyard from which Trout Springs Winery expects to harvest a bountiful crop of several varieties of grapes next month, the celebratory event is designed to call attention to the federally approved "Wisconsin Ledge" designation.

This designation can be used in the labeling and promotion of wines made from grapes grown in the vicinity of the Niagara Escarpment in east central Wisconsin.

For a per glass fee, attendees will be able to sample more than a dozen of the wines made by Steve and Andrea DeBaker at Trout Springs. Many of them have won major awards in national and international competition in recent years.

Free samples of cheeses will be provided by manufacturer BelGioioso of the Green Bay area and distributor Vern's Cheese of Chilton. Pulled pork hoagies will be prepared by chef Sal Friedel.

Other scheduled activities will be tours at 3:30 p.m. and 5 p.m. of the winemaking and bottling facilities, the trout ponds, and the vineyard at the property, on-site open air painting by members of the Water's Edge Artists, a display of sculptures made by Keith Carter and his friends, and flying demonstrations by members of the Northern Acres Air Show and Green Bay Model Airplane clubs.

A special event will be a "crowd-sourced" escarpment art project, sponsored by the Coventry Glassworks & Gallery of Appleton and the Eden Stone corporation of Fond du Lac County.

Attendees will be able to win items in a prize raffle. They will also receive a commemorative win glass.

Information will also be available about the unique geography, geology, and climate of the Niagara Escarpment area, which was prepared mainly by Steve DeBaker over nearly seven years before being submitted to the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms to obtain the Wisconsin Ledge designation.

A display on the natural resources in the town of Morrison and its "sense of place" is also planned.

Sponsors of the 2nd annual event are the Trout Springs Winery, the Lakeshore Natural Resources Partnership, the town of Morrison, 91.1 The Avenue FM radio station, and the Niagara Escarpment Resource Network, which will receive a portion of the proceeds.

More information about the event is available on the www.escarpmentnetwork.org and the lnrp.org websites.
