4. Door Peninsula Winery
Producing the finest and largest selection of wines in Wisconsin, Door Peninsula Winery in Sturgeon Bay, WI is a favorite of many tourists and locals alike. In the 1960s, the winery was built into a historic school building for its Victorian-esque charm. Since the Wisconsin climate becomes too cold for growing grapes during winter, the winery makes many of their drinks from locally grown fruits such as cherries, plums, and apples! You can sample more than 45 wines from two tasting bars and tours each day. Tours run on the hour daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
5. Door 44 Winery
Door 44 Winery makes it their mission to produce only the best selections that are made with locally grown Wisconsin grapes.
