Door Peninsula Winery Wins Awards in Florida!
We just received this press release from one of our favorite places - Door Peninsula Winery - and they have won more awards! Very cool!
Door Peninsula Winery wins 3 medals at Fla. competition
Three of our wines recently received awards at the 26th Annual Florida State Fair International Wine Competition, sponsored by the Florida Grape Growers Association.
Taking a gold medal at this global event was Blackberry Merlot – one of the 733 total entries to receive this high distinction. This semi-sweet blend has been one of the more-popular wines from Door Peninsula Winery. This wine brings a full, dark fruit flavor with a merlot-style mid-palate.
Two other blended wines – Lighthouse White and Sunset Splash – were awarded bronze medals. Lighthouse White uses Catawba grapes. This aromatic wine is packed with melon, green apple, and orange notes. This sweet white has a pleasing back palate with acidity that allows it to pair well with most foods.
Sunset Splash is made in the style of a white Sangria. It’s a sweet and tropical white wine which is packed with pineapple, mango, and citrus tones – consistently a favorite wine of the customers.
Now in its 40th year of operation, Door Peninsula Winery has continued to be one of the leading wineries in the Midwest, producing over 45 different kinds of wine, from dry to sweet. Located on Highway 42 in Carlsville north of Sturgeon Bay, the winery is open each day at 9 a.m.
