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

Fun place to stop. They have wines on tap - free tastings.... many to choose from. We always leave with a case. And the distillery is attached too - loved the Cherry Vodka! Definitely a fun place to check out.

Very clean and bright shop. The wine tasting room was large and easy to navigate while making selections. There was no hunting for your wine of choice as all displays were clearly marked. There were sample dips with pretzels, bread and crackers throughout the wine room. The staff serving the wine was helpful and knowledgeable. All wines seemed reasonably priced... More

Stopped in Door Peninsula to check out their winery. Took a quick look at their distillery as well. Sampled their wine after talking to the staff as to what we liked. Very knowledgeable and actually offer additional tastings. Ended up buying 6 bottles of wine. Nice location and space in the winery to browse aroung.

A very interesting place! It's impressive in looks, style, selection of items, and the friendliness of the staff. We didn't have time for the guided tour or to try out the restaurant, but certainly are keeping them on the agenda for another time!

One of our favorite wineries in Door County. Blackberry Merlot is exceptional. The folks working the tasting bar were very friendly as well as knowledgable.
