The old schoolhouse in Carlsville, home of Door Peninsula Winery, was the scene of a heated battle on July 27 between competitors representing four Door County nonprofit organizations in the fourth annual Great Grape Stomp.

Two categories of contestants were set to compete for awards and prizes, the public and the nonprofit representatives.

In the nonprofit category, Kate LeRoy of The Ridges Sanctuary out-stomped everyone to win a $250 Door Peninsula Winery product donation to use for fundraising. Other nonprofit representatives included Ryan Powley, Habitat for Humanity; Lindsey Petersilka, Sunshine House; and Sara McKillop, United Way of Door County.

Jodi Vanderbloemen placed first in the general public competition with Debbie Pribek, Tracy Miller and Tammy Mleviza in second, third and fourth place.
