For $3/person you can sample 7 wines, which is a great deal for me! Their wine selection is huge, but the staff is super helpful. if you do the test testing you get a coupon for $3 off any bottle of wine and their prices are outstanding, especially for locally produced.

I went on a trolley wine tour with a friend and this place blew my socks off! The variety they offer is great, something for every taste! Also the apple and pumpkin butter they have for sampling is a plus. The building is also beautiful, they recently started making vodka/bourbon as well. Will be visiting again!

We were the only ones on the winery tour. We did the testing for $3 each, and then r eceived two $3 off coupons for a bottle of wine. The staff was very helpful in trying to find a wine that we may enjoy. Highly recommend!

We have been visiting the winery for many years but their service has gone down hill greatly. Our last visit was going fine one of the bar tenders rudely demanded that we show her that we had paid for the wine tasting. After we did she began to get very paranoid and swore at us. She also proceeded to make... More

This winery has a very large number of wines for sale. They are $-$$. You can sample 6 for just a couple of dollars. The cost of which is applied to the first bottle purchased. You can also sample Ship Wrecked beers here. They also sell a limited number of those beers. Awesome stuff! Pumpkin and Porter were available. They... More

The winery has a distinctive chlorinated smell, which was a bit off-putting, but the actual shop area where you can also buy wine and/or do a tasting was well organized and energetic. There was a wide variety of wines to choose from, as well as a selection of liquors Door Peninsula distills. The staff were helpful.

Visited there today at 4:30 PM. The place was advertised that it closed at 5:00 PM. However, all the tasting areas were already closed and cleaned up, and staff was very rude. I requested a free sample of fudge to try and the clerk was absolutely impersonal. Additionally, the sample was all dried out. At the check out, two staff... More

Have enjoyed this winery for years - quite the growth from its schoolhouse origins. Fun, free samplings of vinegars, oils and fudge. The wine tasting is a good deal - $3 for seven samples and you get $3 off a bottle. Decent wines - lots of fruit-based but non-headache-producing - and the spirits - gin, vodka, whiskey and brandy -... More

This was an afterthought to stop here but was very fun. In paying to try wines, one essentially gets the money back (I believe it was $5) after buying a bottle of wine since the cost to taste test is discounted from the bottle of wine purchased. There's also cheese, vinegars, and delicious fudge to sample.
