We really enjoyed our visit to this winery. The variety of wine was great. They did not limit you to only 5 or 6 samples like others in the area do. It also was a great value with most bottles of wine priced around $10. The lower level had a variety of fudge, dips, cheese, olive oils and many other... More

For $3 which is a coupon off purchased wine, we were able to sample all of their listed wines which included 30 or more. Good that the winery is now offering the dry red wines which appeals to many who enjoy those wines. the wine maker is from California, so has been making more of the dry reds. Tasted probably...

If you want an awesome shopping experience, check out this winery. Every staff member we encountered was fun and seem to love their job. They have tons of cute gift items and over 50 different wines. The building is beautiful and they even have a distillery. I can't say enough good things about this place. LOVED IT!!!

We've been here multiple times and this is where I started to drink wine as they have a lot of fruit and sweet wines so I'd recommend it for people who aren't that big into wine who want to start. Now my tastes have changed and I'm more of a dry wine drinker and they do have a few of... More

There is a lot of wine to taste. The tasting is free. It is always crowded but smooth. Every range of wine is available. The tour was not worth the money but the place itself is. Beer from Shipwrecked is also available. Wine is good, just need to find your style. The cheaper/sweeter wine is extremely sweet. The higher end... More

Cool stop on the way north. Lots of history and short tour. We really liked the selection of wine, liquor and different local food. Would stop again, but falls right in line with a lot of the wineries in the area.

The wine tasting is $3 but you get a $3 coupon for a bottle of wine, the distillery is $5 for tastings. The place is very large and they have a wide variety of wines\alcohol

Nice quick stop with lots of door county food and drink products. You can have free samples of all their different wines which is great if you want to know which you like. Huge selection of wines - mostly sweet fruit wines. We did not try the restaurant/cafe.

We physically visit the winery yearly at least. However, this was my first time ordering online. They were offering free shipping during Christmas, and I decided to stock up. I placed my order on the 31st of December, and it arrived yesterday (1/5)! Couldn't believe how quickly! Great wines, great olive oils (will stock up on those next time too),... More

We've been stopping at this place for, literally, decades and have seen it grow and change over time. 20+ years ago it was more of a novelty--a place to buy some cherry wine to bring home to frineds. Now they have a few bona fide wines. No it's not Napa Valley but you can find a few drier and drinkable... More
