They don't tell you there's a fee for tasting until you get in with a glass in your hand. Attitude is everything and there's needs an improvement. However the music they have is awesome! They have some local talent come in and play ambience music and they are really good.

We recently traveled to Door County for wine tasting. This was the only winery that we went to that had a fee for the tasting. We do not mind paying a fee however, other wineries we've been to will refund your tasting fee if you make a purchase. This is not the case at Red Oak Winery . You are... More

This winery moved from its downtown location to one off the highway. We had never been to the original. When we opened the door, I felt like I was going into a dark bar. There was one counter and people sitting at it tasting wine. Pretty dreary. We bought one bottle of cherry wine and left. I enjoyed talking to... More

Stopped by on a whim. Fun wine tastings. Very reasonable. Great cherry salsa and the wines are delicious.

Very friendly staff, reasonable price for the tasting ($5), no waiting and decent wine. Very convenient off of the main highway from Green Bay.

Stopped for a wine tasting. Service was slow and the wines were not good at all. Had no character and tasted watered down. This was a unanimous opinion of all four of us.

The courtesy and service at this winery was sorely lacking. The tasting room server should be both knowledgeable and courteous in performing their task. We were coldly greeted by what I would refer to as a wine pourer. For that is all she did, pour it in the glass and leave. There was a $5 tasting fee. I really don't... More

OK, first the winery is in a large warehouse building in a treeless field. Now that that is out of the way, on to the important stuff. Once inside the building, you are greeted by a very attractive tasting area. The afternoon my wife and I visited, a very accomplished guitarist, Troy Therrien, entertained the visitors. Both individuals working the... More

Followed the directions on the Door county wine tour flyer. Located the building, which was empty, and figured that they had gone out of business. Called just in case and apparently they have moved but have not updated literature or posted any signage at the old location. After getting directions to the new location we found out that they had... More

You needed to pay $5 for the wine tasting; we thought the wines were just ok. Most wineries have nice crackers and this place had cheap oyster crackers. Majority of their wines were overpriced compared with other wineries in the area. We had just come from Von Steil before going here and they have a better selection and prices. Also... More
