Door Peninsula Winery Wins Gold!

We received word recently that Door Peninsula Winery of Carlsville has won Gold in a recent competition! Great winery - Read our Review! See below.

Sweet Cherry Gold Highlights Door County Cherry

Door Peninsula Winery recently competed in one of the oldest professional wine competitions, the International Eastern Wine Competition, now in its 33rd year. The 2009 event again topped over 2,200 entries from 16 countries and 34 states. Door Peninsula Winery is proud to bring home the gold for their Sweet Cherry Wine, one of the first and original wines produced by Door Peninsula and a true Door County product.

Fruit wines in the Midwest are strong in the competition that is held at the Finger Lakes region of New York. Even a bronze medal in the competition requires a unanimous panel vote from judges that are wine-knowledgeable professionals, media specialists and wine makers who represent major east coast markets from Miami to Toronto.

Door Peninsula Winery's Sweet Cherry tasted better than the sweet cherry of the other major producers of fruit wine in the nation, St. Julian Winery in Michigan (silver) and St. James Winery in Missouri (bronze).

Door Peninsula Winery also took home a silver for both their popular Blackberry wine and Sunset Splash, a fruit wine blend. Of the blended fruit wine category, the Sunset Splash, that retails for $8.99, tasted better than many $14-26 bottles, again showing that Door Peninsula Winery's wines are of quality and value.
