Door Peninsula Winery was awarded another gold medal this fall for it’s Sweet Appple wine. The very popular wine is often standing in the shadow of sweet cherry, another abundant locally grown fruit, but certainly holds its own in competitions. A total of 1,974 entries representing 470 wineries came from several states and countries for the Long Beach Grand Cru wine and food tasting competition in California.
“Locally grown apples and their pressed juice is used for the apple wine that is in many of our blends,” says winemaker Paul Santoriello. “We’re proud of the award and the quality it brings to our other apple blend wines.”
Door Peninsula Winery creates apple wines in Sweet Apple, Cranberry Apple, Peninsula White, Hallowine and Sunset Splash.
Nutcracker Wine New Release!
In December of 1876, exiled Prussian dancer Newt Von Krekker set sail for Iceland. Lacking navigational skills, the wayward lad found himself shipwrecked near the Door Peninsula. As the story goes, the local vinters daughter, Sojenhomer, discovered the frost bitten man and was so taken by his comely appearance, she sighed ‘Sir Ah, Sir Ah”. At his daughters request, the vinter fermented a magical red grape wine, which the vinters daughter dubbed “Sir Ah Newtkrekker”.
