Wisconsinites who are crazy about ice fishing, snowmobiling, and cross country skiing have been a bit blue this winter. While the mild temperatures and lack of snow have their benefits, they interfere with winter sports.
Door County, just north of our Algoma, Wisconsin Winery, is known as a winter wonderland. During typical winter weather, folks flock there to explore its miles of trails on skis, snowshoes, or snowmobiles. Don’t stay home just because Mother Nature hasn’t cooperated; there is plenty to do in Door County even without snow.
- The 25th Annual Fish Creek Winter Festival takes place February 3-5, 2012. Ride the trolley, play human foosball, and check out the Door County Idol contest.
- Candlelight Ski/Hike through Peninsula State Park on February 4, 2012. Warm yourself by the big old bonfire. 5:30-8:30 p.m.
- Fire and Ice at Sturgeon Bay, February 17-19, 2012. Watch professionals carve ice, or try your own hand at it. Evenings are full of dancing.
Or forego the festivities and head to Door Peninsula with your sweetie for a romantic getaway. Cute cabins, quaint inns, and luxurious resorts invite lazy mornings and romantic evenings. Be sure to visit the tasting room at our Algoma, Wisconsin Winery on your way north. Find a wine you both like, and maybe some local cheese or sweet treat, to enjoy during your weekend in Door County. Valentine’s Day will soon be here; what are your plans?
Try a bottle of our 2008 Barrel Select Cabernet Sauvignon, made with grapes from Washington State’s Yakima Valley. A special wine for a special occasion.
