Door County, WI is known for its wonderful sweet and tart cherries, which are made into wonderful preserves and sweet wines. Grape growers produce lovely dry whites and reds in addition to the sweet wines. Local cuisine is lighter than I expected (the fish boil is a not-to-be-missed tradition) and the desserts are heavenly. There’s lots to see, including an exemplary Maritime Museum, “haunted” houses and lighthouses. Towns have sidewalks! Drivers actually stop for pedestrians crossing a street! No stop lights necessary here. I stayed at a lovely B&B called Garden Gate, where the breakfasts were divine! And the cherry pie is a must!
sit for a little while longer before bottling and naming it. Wish I could have brought some home with me!
