Inside the winery you can taste from any of our 70 plus wines and ciders. Wine tasting is first come, first served. There may be a short wait during busier times but we always do our best to get to our guests as soon as they’re ready to taste!
Tours are held on the hour, 10 am-4 pm, and are free. Tours are approximately 25 minutes long and include information about both the winery and Door County Distillery (located in the same building). They do not go outside to our vineyard. There are no reservations needed for individuals or smaller groups. If you have a large group (15+), we appreciate you calling ahead to let us know you are coming.
We also have tour upgrades. An upgraded tour includes a glass of wine, Door County Distillery spirit tasting, Door County Distillery logo shot glass, and 2 oz of chocolate covered cherries for $18.

If you’re interested in upgrading, visit the registers at the front of the building by the olive oil, fudge, and other food items to pay for and receive your upgrade items.
