“Too many choices, not enough time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

Great tasting experience. Bought a case and got a 20% discount. Hard to choose which ones, as they were all excellent. Nice sample area for oils/vinegars. Spent more than we should have!!

“Got 4 hours???”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

This place was great...from the winery, to the market, to the lunch, to the tasting of brandy and vodka. HUGE and fun filled!! The restraunt had the BEST clam chowder I have ever had and I have had many different cups of chowder over my lifetime. The wine tasting was a little wierd...long, long bar and two gals working it that didn't seem to have a method so people just stood around waiting for their next sample...however, that can work out in your favor, they can't keep up w/ how many you have had...if you want to have a couple extra. Not their fault I guess that the place is under staffed. In fact they could use quite a bit more staff throughout the whole place, BUT...don't let this detour you from going. It was worth it!

“You like wine??”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

If you are in Door County and don't make a stop at Door Peninsula Winery you are definitely missing out! Door County has many wineries and markets, but Door Peninsula Winery is both. They are very generous with their samples of wine and food (for free!). They also make their own Vodka and if you're into that you can sample Vodka as well! Your trip to Door County will not be complete until you stop at the Door Peninsula Winery.

“Good Desert Wine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

Very nice facility. Staff in tasting room were friendly and no fee for unlimited tasting, if I recall correctly. Their Chocolate Cherry wine is desert in a bottle.
