Fantastic Local Wineries

8 of Door County’s best wineries are present at the event to give samples and teach you everything you need to know about their wine-making process. You will also find many of these wineries along the Door County Wine Trail. Here are the ones we most highly recommend you try!

Harbour Ridge Winery: This relatively new winery has already established itself as one of the best premium winemakers in the county!  You’ll find an array of red, white, and fruit wines on their menu, each boasting only the finest local ingredients. Many visitors have raved over their out-of-the-ordinary yet irresistible flavors such as chocolate, plum, cherry, and more!

Stone’s Throw Winery: Stone’s Throw uses delicious California grapes to create their classic wines. Their traditional selections range from whites, reds, and sparkling. They are sure to satisfy your very specific tastes!

Door 44 Winery: At exactly 44 degrees north latitude, you’ll find the world-renowned Italian grape growing regions. That is how Door 44 Winery earned its name! They heavily rely on the tried and true processes of the European winemakers, but also add some Door County specialties! Their passion for what they do shows in their expertly crafted wines that have raked in several awards.

An Abundance of Live Music Performances

Live performances on four stages during the event means you’ll never be bored! Although the 2017 calendar has yet to be announced, you can expect to hear some of the best up-and-coming local bands in the region. With so much incredible music to listen to, some visitors mistake the wine festival for a music festival! Check the Door County Wine Fest website for updates on performances.
