DPW WINS DOUBLE GOLD WITH ORIGINAL
AT FINGER LAKES INTERNATIONAL WINE COMPETITION
BAY, WI – Three of Door Peninsula Winery’s wines won medals at the 14th
annual Finger Lakes International Wine Competition (FIWC), held last weekend at
the Plaza Hotel in Rochester, N.Y.
Sweet Cherry was awarded a double-gold medal, Blackberry
received a gold medal and Plum Loco earned a silver medal.
The competition at the FLIWC was deep this year, with more
than 3,700 wines entered. Wineries from 20 countries took part, including from
every U.S. state as well as six Canadian provinces.
The double-gold award is particularly significant for Door
Peninsula Winery. Not only is the Sweet
Cherry wine made with locally grown Door County cherries, it was the first wine
produced upon the winery’s opening in 1974. While Door Peninsula Winery has
since broadened its product line to include more than 45 different wines, Sweet
Cherry remains its flagship product.
DPW’s Blackberry wine possesses strong dark fruit aromas and
flavors with a touch of fall forest earthiness. The Plum Loco flavor is one of
the winery’s popular blended wines, made with plum and cherry wines, with a
hint of watermelon added.
THE FINGER LAKES INTERNATIONAL WINE COMPETITION:
Finger Lakes International Wine Competition is a worldwide wine-tasting
showdown, which brings in 68 judges from 15 countries
representing the best Masters of Wine, Master Sommeliers, sommeliers, educators
and writers of wine. It also serves as a charity event, benefiting Camp Good
Days and Special Times, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping children
and families dealing with cancer.
DOOR PENINSULA WINERY:

producing the finest and largest selection of wines in all of Wisconsin.

it all, a winning tradition exists within the wines. In 2013, Door Peninsula
