2nd Edition Collectible Lighthouse Bottle Released

In celebration of Peninsula State Park’s 100th birthday, Orchard Country Winery & Market uncorks the second in a series of limited edition lighthouse wine during an Open House on Saturday, May 16 from 10 am – 5 pm.

The unique blend of Riesling grapes and Door County Montmorency cherries arrives once again in a blue lighthouse-shaped bottle, and the label features a Jack Anderson painting of Peninsula State Park’s Eagle Bluff Lighthouse. The selection of an Anderson painting to grace Orchard Country’s second collectible lighthouse wine label was an appropriate choice. A full-time Door County resident since 1986, the watercolorist is inspired by the county’s natural beauty.

One of a series of four lighthouses Anderson painted in 2007, Eagle Bluff Lighthouse is particularly special to the artist. “There is a certain nostalgia about the Peninsula State Park lighthouse, a unique history based on its location,” said Anderson. “I am honored to have my painting selected for the label.”

Open House visitors are invited to Meet the Artist from 10 am – noon when Anderson will sign his artwork featured on the newly released bottles. Keepsake labels will also be available for purchase from the first Door County Lighthouse wine of the series.

In addition to the festivities surrounding the release of the second wine, the Open House will highlight some of the other products available at the market. Over the past 50 years, quality fruit products have become the hallmark of Orchard Country, and complimentary product tastings will be offered to visitors during the open house along with free guided tours of the winery and grounds at 11 am, 1 and 3 pm. Orchard Country’s line of Sartori Cheeses will be featured from 11 am – 3 pm and visitors can enter the drawing for a lighthouse gift package valued at over $100.

Jack Anderson’s original artwork and prints are available for purchase at Cottage Row Framing & Gallery located in the historic barn behind Orchard Country Winery & Market, which is located at 9197 Highway 42 just south of Fish Creek. Orchard Country is open daily from 9 am – 5 pm. For more information visit
