Door County is home to all different types of fruit wineries. Located up and down the entire peninsula, many of these wineries have even been passed along through generations.
When looking at some of these wineries a little closer, it is noticed that many of them are located close to our DC Adventure’s Egg Harbor Beach location! Relaxing with a glass of wine after a long day at the beach sounds the perfect day! Listed below are just some of the popular wineries in Door County.
Lautenbach’s Orchard Country Winery & Market
First is Lautenbach’s Orchard Country Winery & Market, located in the village of Fish Creek, Wisconsin. Fish Creek is the next town north of Egg Harbor when traveling on Highway 42. The winery is located on 100 acres of land that have been in the Lautenbach family since 1955. Lautenbach’s Orchard Country Winery itself was established in 1985.
The Lautenbach’s make their wine from a variety of different fruits that they grow within their property. These fruits include cherries, apples, grapes, raspberries, and pears. Their family also operates a farm market that sells everything from pies to cheese!
Door Peninsula Winery
Next is Door Peninsula Winery is located in Carlsville, Wisconsin, a small town in between Sturgeon Bay and Egg Harbor. Located right off of Highway 42! The winery was established in 1974 in a two-room schoolhouse! As the years went on and the business grew, they eventually had to expand to a larger facility. Today, they have over 60 different wine selections!
Door 44 Winery
44 Wineries is a small chain of wineries within the state of Wisconsin. Door 44 Winery is a 6 acre vineyard located in Sturgeon Bay, while Parallel 44 is a 10 acre vineyard located in Kewaunee. This winery is also along Highway 42, but located south of Carlsville. An interesting fact about these wineries is that they are both located within the 44th parallel north of the equator. The northern circle of latitude also goes through places like the Mediterranean Sea and Europe. Prime wine country!
Stone’s Throw Winery
Located in Baileys Harbor, Wisconsin is Stone’s Throw Winery, one of the few wineries close to our Rowelys Bay location! This winery is unique in comparison to others because they use California grown grapes to make their wine. In 1993, founder Russel Turco thought of the idea to use grapes from California and bring them to Door County to make wine!
