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

I had a great experience visiting Red Oak- It was my first time checking out this winery. I truly enjoyed the visit. I got to sample some fantastic wine and our wine expert was extremely knowledgeable. I won't forget Lana because she took the time to listen to the wines I was interested in and she made her recommendations for... More

Nice new place! We came in to get out of the cold and to experience some of the Door County hospitality. The wine we tasted was exceptional for the price! The people were very friendly and knew what they were doing. We had Lana as our expert, and she was perfect! She was patient and friendly. She recommended several types... More

Unsatisfied and will probably never go back...not when there are other more wonderful wineries than this place. The customer service gets an "F" in every branch. 1) First of all, it moved and didn't update the map location, so after driving for over an hour, I got to a closed parking lot with no signage that it changed locations. I... More

I really enjoyed the person doing the tasting. I like to start out positive, but now to the meat and potatoes, or shall I say the wine and oyster crackers. For $5.00 I really wanted to taste at least one wine that was good. None here. We have done dozen's of tastings...free and not free. I don't know what their... More
