Spring in Door County wine country is filled with blossoming orchards and vineyards regenerating after a long winter. With these buds and blossoms comes the excitement of a new crop and every farmer and vintner’s hope for a bountiful harvest.
On the weekend of May 17-19, the Door County Wine Trail Weekend will take place. Celebrate the spring by indulging in a wide array of individual events at seven local wineries including orchard and vineyard tours, cheese and chocolate pairings, live music and salsa dancing. Take part in a barrel tasting seminar or dinner show.
Maximize your wine trail weekend experience by picking up a wine trail brochure including our new passport program. Visit all seven wineries, collect a stamp at each and receive a limited edition wine trail logo embossed glass, while supplies last.
