Grilled Pizza and Petite Syrah

Last night we had our first of the summer season pizza on the grill. It’s easy to make, light and it has that fresh garden flavor that is missing from frozen pizza or pizza made with canned pizza sauce. Last night our pizza was topped with freshly grated Parmesan cheese, fresh basil straight from the garden […]

Beer Festivals for June 2009

“It takes a lot of beer to make a good wine.” This frequently heard comment is from several winemakers who believe that a good beer can be as satisfying as a good wine. Even if you don’t care for a beer, try a beer tasting. This weekend there are a couple of beer festivals in […]

It was perfect for a warm, summer day. Door County Sunset Splash was a semi-sweet wine with 11.5 percent alcohol. The […]

Wisconsin Wine Trolley Tours

Door County, Wisconsin has trolley tours, and one of these tours is a Premier Wine Tour.  Since we were on a schedule we were not able to take part in the trolley ride but it looked like a great idea to us. We saw the trolleys at two of our winery stop Simon Creek Vineyard […]

Wisconsin: A Tempting Place to Live

During our visit to Wisconsin wineries in June, we had incredible weather. Since this was our first visit to Wisconsin we were unsure as to what clothes to wear – would it be cold, cool or warm? We arrived on the first day with sweaters and a coat. It was not exactly the best choice; […]

Fruit Wines and Grape Wines

There is a lot of controversy in the wine world about whether a fruit wine (produced with fruits other than grapes) is a wine or not. The dividing line may depend on whether or not you like or appreciate fruit wines. While many fruit wines are sweet, many are also available that are not sweet. […]
