Ted Pollman Scholarship Awarded to Two Graduating Seniors
Carlsville, WI - Recipients
of the 2013 Ted Pollman Scholarship were announced this week. Michael Eric
Wolfe, Sturgeon Bay High School Senior, and Patricia Hernandez, Sevastopol
High School Senior, were chosen out of many deserving candidates from the
four area schools.
The Ted Pollman Scholarship
was created by the Pollman family, owners of Door Peninsula Winery and
other Door County businesses, to honor the memory of their youngest son who
was tragically killed in a car accident in 2000. Despite being diagnosed
with severe learning disabilities at the age of five, Ted exceeded through
hard work and persistence. The intent of the scholarship is to award a
graduating senior who has overcome financial, scholastic and/or physical
challenges in their life and has ambitions of furthering their education.
The scholarship is in its
twelfth year, beginning in Biloxi, Mississippi at Ted's alma mater, St.
John's High School. During Hurricane Katrina in 2005, the high school was
destroyed and the decision was made to move the scholarship to Sevastopol
High School due to Door Peninsula Winery's location within the school
district. This year is the first that the scholarship has been open to
students in all four area high schools.
"We decided that seniors
from all the schools should have an opportunity to apply for the
scholarship," said Noreen Pollman, President of Door Peninsula Winery.
"We own businesses throughout the county and wanted to be able to
support students in each community."
Applicants are asked about
their educational aspirations, community involvement, extracurricular
involvement, and the challenges they have faced and overcome. Each
application is read by the Pollman family and a deserving student is chosen
based on their answers.
"It was difficult for us
to make a decision," said Bob Pollman. "We received so many
deserving applications this year that we couldn't decide on just one. We
are pleased we are able to help these young people and keep the memory of
our son going."
There are 3 additional Ted
Pollman Scholarships awarded each year to deserving employees going on to
The Pollman family has owned
Door Peninsula Winery since 1984 and also owns Door County Distillery and
Bistro 42, attached to the winery; Cooper's Corner, The Barrel Room and The
Cherry Hut in Fish Creek; and Shipwrecked Brew Pub and Fat Louie's Olive
Oil in Egg Harbor.

Door Peninsula Winery & Door County
Distillery Win International Awards
Carlsville, WI - Door Peninsula
Winery (DPW) & Door County Distillery (DCD) announced receiving national
and international recognition for their wines and spirits last Friday.
DPW won Double Gold medals for
their Mango & blended Chaos Red wines and Best of Class for Mango. from the
Jerry D. Mead New World International Wine Competition. The competition is held
in Southern California that is open to wines produced anywhere in the "New
World", including all of North America, Central America, and South
America, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. And is consistently billed as
the only competition in America, and perhaps the world, to pit the best wines
against each other to determine an overall best of variety or type.
"Winning Double Gold for any
of our wines is a significant award," said Rob Pollman, Chief Operations
Officer at DPW. "To have won Double Gold for two of our wines, plus a Best
of Class, among such competition is a huge accomplishment and honor."
Double Gold is an award given to
the top 3% of all wines entered in a competition and Best of Class is reserved
for the best wine of a competition for its category.
"These awards speak to how
we truly capture the fruit flavors in these wines," said Paul Santoriello,
Winemaker at DPW. "This is the first time either has won Double Gold. I
think it's the start of something big. They are nice awards and it's nice to be
DCD also entered a product into
the same competition: Apple Brandy, which took a silver medal. Spirits
competitions are few, but wine competitions typically have a spirits category
for products derived from wine, primarily brandy, because of the growing number
of micro-distilleries in the U.S.
DCD also took silver, for its
Gin, and bronze, for its Luminous Vodka, from the San Francisco World Spirits
Competition. This competition is regarded as the most respected spirits
competition in the world by the spirits industry.
"These awards are extremely
prestigious medals to receive," said Kyle Thomas, Head Distiller at DCD.
"Especially, when you consider they were compared to well-known, high-end,
national vodkas, gins and brandies. It's great that, as a micro-distillery, we
can create ultra-premium products and now be world-recognized for them."
Apple Brandy and Luminous Vodka
were both released last fall. Gin has won several awards since its release in
late 2011, including multiple Gold medals. All DPW & DCD products are made
locally and are specialty products of Door County. DCD's Apple Brandy is made
from DPW's Apple wine.
DPW & DCD are located on
Highway 42 in Carlsville and these award-winning products can be sampled daily
from 9am to 5pm.
