The Door Peninsula Winery started back in 1974 in a former two-room schoolhouse built in 1868. Taking advantage of the abundant and legendary cherry orchards nearby, they started out with cherry wine. Numerous expansions since have added on more wine storage and production space, a restaurant, and finally new distillery in 2011 where gin, whiskey, brandy, and bitters are made. Cherry moonshine recently debuted, too; we have yet to try that but we’ll head there again soon!
You’ll find the Door Peninsula Winery right along Highway 42 in Carlsville, about five miles north of Sturgeon Bay.
