Door Peninsula Winery Wines Are Winners

Door Peninsula Winery won three medals at the 26th Annual Florida State Fair International Wine Competition, sponsored by the Florida Grape Growers Association.

Taking a gold medal at this global event was Blackberry Merlot – one of the 733 total entries to receive this high distinction. This semi-sweet blend brings a full, dark fruit flavor with a merlot-style mid-palate.

Two other blended wines – Lighthouse White and Sunset Splash – were awarded bronze medals. Lighthouse White uses Catawba grapes, and is packed with melon, green apple, and orange notes. This sweet white has a pleasing back palate with acidity that allows it to pair well with most foods.

Sunset Splash is made in the style of a white Sangria with pineapple, mango, and citrus tones.

Now in its 40th year of operation, Door Peninsula Winery has continued to be one of the leading wineries in the Midwest, producing more than 45 kinds of wine, from dry to sweet. Located on Highway 42 in Carlsville, the winery is open daily at 9 am. For more information visit
