Door County’s Stony Creek Vineyard Tour?

Welcome to our inaugural season of vineyard tours! Step into the peaceful countryside of the Schmiling century farm, located six miles north of Algoma in the south end of Door County. The Stony Creek Vineyard was named for the meandering waterway it overlooks in 1997, when the first vines were planted by father/son team Bill and Aric Schmiling. This is one of the oldest vineyards in Door County, managed by the oldest licensed winery in Wisconsin.?

You will learn about the history of the land, the development of our first vines, and how our practices have changed over the years. See the three varieties of French-Hybrid grapes that we grow. These cold-hardy vines were designed at the University of Minnesota to survive our challenging Midwestern winters. Hear about the Wisconsin Ledge terroir, how it affects the vines in their current stage, and understand how the characteristics of the vineyard show up in our wines.

The tour will continue to Algoma through our production facility and historic cellars. You’ll taste special vintages as you tour, and it will finish in the tasting room with a traditional wine tasting.

A great way to spend time with friends and family, this tour will be offered on three select Fridays of summer. Reserve your spot(s). Come for one to see a snapshot of our Door County Vineyard, or sign up for all three to see how the vines and grapes change throughout the growing season. Either way, we can’t wait to give you this special tour!
