Wisconsin Wine and Quilts

November 9th, 2010 by

Blustery fall weather has arrived, but that doesn’t stop intrepid Midwesterners from having fun. Weekends are still a time for outdoor activity and recreation – hiking, biking, boating, sightseeing, wine tasting… anything goes. This weekend, why not take a break from the city (Green Bay, Manitowoc) and head up to Door County to relax and unwind. When you do, stop by our Algoma Wisconsin Winery for wine tasting and a bottle or two of your favorite Wisconsin wine – it will make the weekend that much better. Touring the Kewaunee Area Barn Quilts is a great way to spend a day. Inspired by a similar project in Iowa, the Kewaunee County Area Barn Quilt project highlights historically significant barns. 4-H and FFA students throughout Kewaunee County spoke with the property owners about their barns, and patterns and colors were selected. The youngsters created the quilts and hung them over the course of a year, and today there are 18 barn quilts in the region. Our Algoma Winery tasting room is conveniently located in the midst of these beautifully adorned historic barns. On warm and sunny fall days, try a glass of refreshing Chardonnay or Chenin Blanc. If you need to hold on to your hat, stop by for a sip of our velvety Cabernet Sauvignon or our eminently drinkable Satin Red. The atmosphere of our tasting room is inviting and friendly – the perfect addition to a weekend getaway on the Door Peninsula.

Please visit Kewaunee County Area Barn Quilts for additional information.
