Fall colors are at their peak at our Algoma Wisconsin winery and north of us in Door County. Now is the time to drop everything, hop in the car, and head to the Door County Peninsula. Use stored vacation time, call in sick, or bring your laptop and work from the road – in short, do what it takes. This won’t last forever; in a week or two, the trees will be bare.
The first stop when heading to Door County should always be our Algoma Wisconsin winery. After all, no weekend in Door County is complete without Wisconsin wine. Chilly evenings call for our Cabernet Sauvignon Barrel Select, while sunny fall days seem to demand our Chardonnay, full of the flavor of ripe apples.
This weekend – October 15 , 16, and 17, 2010 – is the 65th annual Fall Festival in Sister Bay, about fifty miles north of Algoma. The festival features a parade, a Classic Car Show, a fish boil, and arts and crafts. It takes place in town, along the coast of Green Bay. No festival in Wisconsin is complete without live music, so many bands will take the stage.
Once you’ve had your fill of the festival, head to one of the numerous orchards in the area for apple picking. Or enjoy a colorful bike ride along around the peninsula, up Green Bay and down the coast of Lake Michigan. Now that sounds like a perfect fall day.
