Birch Creek Welcomes Door County Art League Artists


Birch Creek Music Performance Center and the Door County Art League (DCAL) have announced their second annual collaborative effort to raise funds for Birch Creek’s music academy students.

A repeat of the successful 2012 Plein Air effort and exhibit which brought artists from both organizations to the campus on concert nights has been expanded for 2013.

Artists are invited to set up their easels to paint before and during any concert in this year’s sessions that begin June 27. The exhibit of finished works including paintings, photography, collage, etc., will be on display in the barn from Wednesday, July 31, during the Jazz I session, through the last performance of Jazz II on Saturday, August 17.

All art work will be for sale with 30% of the proceeds being donated to Birch Creek to benefit Birch Creek students.

For more information or to learn how to participate, contact any of the three co-chairs of the effort: Door County Art League member Madonna Siles, 746-0449 or Birch Creek Associates and DCAL members Karen DeNoto, 746-9841 or Sue Vineyard, 743-6068.

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 higher education.
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 recognized."

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.
