Door Peninsula Winery Continues to Win Gold

Carlsville, WI - Door Peninsula Winery (DPW) announced the winning of its first gold medal of 2013 last Thursday. The medal was awarded to their Lighthouse White vintage at the annual International Eastern Wine Competition (IEWC), a competition that judges wines from across the Midwest, Eastern United States & Canada.
This award recognizes Lighthouse White as being in the top 10 percent of all wines in this year's competition of over 1,037 entries.
Made from regionally sourced Catawba grapes, Lighthouse White is one of the most popular wines at DPW.
"I think the popularity of Lighthouse White is due to the fact that it is very similar to Moscato, which has a huge following in the market right now," said Paul Santoriello, winemaker for DPW. "It is a sweet white, balanced with high acidity, making it a very easy drinking wine that pairs well with almost any food."
Lighthouse White is part of DPW's Signature Lighthouse Series; a collection of premium varietal, or grape, wines like Merlot, Chardonnay and estate-grown grapes like La Crosse and Marechal Foch Hybrid Red.
DPW's Sweet Survivor was also awarded a bronze medal at the IEWC. Sweet Survivor has been a philanthropic project over the last 3 years for DPW. $1 from every bottle sold is donated to Door CANcer, a community volunteer organization benefiting the families of cancer victims.
"Since beginning this project, we've been able to donate over $6,000 to Door CANcer," said Rob Pollman, Chief Operations Officer at DPW. "Both the wine & the project have been very well received. Winning a medal for Sweet Survivor is just another way for us to spread the word about the organization & helping families in Door County."
DPW is in its 39th year of operation and offers complimentary tastes of the full line of award-winning wines at the tasting bar in Carlsville, open daily, year round. More information about wines and hours of operation can be found on DPW's website:
