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

When we first went to Door County this was one of the few and a small winery. It was grown greatly over the last several years and has added a restaurant and more parking. They have great wines and a perfect location. They also offer Fat Louie Olive Oil and various other local items for sale.

Seasonal wines (Halloween and Christmas), cherry wine and a local brandy. Tastings are a fun way to spend a few hours. Tough to get out of there without spending $75 - $100, but it's worth it!

This establishment has expanded since I was last here...glad to see it growing. We did the wine sampling which is great so you know what you like BEFORE you buy. I personally loved the flavored balsamic vinegars & olive oil even better than the wine! Lots & lots of gifts, art, wine, foods to choose from and mostly reasonable pricing.... More

My wife and I enjoyed a private wine and distillery tasting and really enjoyed this adventure. The atmosphere was amazing. The wines were incredible (Lighthouse white was both of our favorite). In between wine and liquor samples, we enjoyed jams, butters, salsa, and olive oils. Great experience and I highly recommend it.

Door Peninsula Winery was our favorite out of the five wineries that we visited over the weekend. We like sweet fruit wines so this was perfect for us and our wine rack is full again after visiting Door Peninsula Winery. It was busier than the other wineries that we visited, but there was plenty of room so you didn't feel... More
