Next month is when spring really begins in Door County. And how do we know this? Because the cherry blossoms appear – at last! All over the countryside and along the roadways, cherry blossoms leave their thin carpeting of white and pink petals. The trees become like giant cotton candy puffs and we remember what a warm breeze feels like on our faces.
A fun way to celebrate spring in Door County is via a trolley tour. The tours are run by Door County Trolley Inc. They pick you up in Sturgeon Bay around 9:30 a.m. and take you up the peninsula to the adorable community of Fish Creek, exploring orchards of blossoms and large expanses of wildflower fields along the way. There will be many great photo opportunities, so don’t forget your camera!
While in Fish Creek, you will enjoy a horse-drawn carriage ride! Lunch and two wine tastings are also included in the tour.
The tours take place on Saturdays and Sundays throughout April and May. Cost is $60. Visit the Door County Trolley website to purchase tickets.
von Stiehl’s Cherry Wines
We have a wide selection of wines created from the very cherries these blossoms hail! After your tour, stop by von Stiehl in Algoma to taste some of our Door County cherry wines. Here are some of our most popular:
- Cherry Blush Wine: A smooth and appealing semi-dry white blushed with Montmorency cherries.
- Cherry Kirsche: This fortified wine is the perfect marriage of brandy spirits and cherry wine.
- Cherry Kirsche Oak-Aged: This fortified wine is the perfect marriage of brandy spirits and cherry wine, aged in American Oak for an extra smooth finish.
You can buy any of our wines from our website if you can’t make it to our winery.
