Wisconsin’s oldest licensed winery… founded in 1967!

The Schmiling brothers that grew up in von Stiehl Winery now own and operate it. The older brother, Aric, utilizes the most modern equipment known to winemaking as he artfully crafts fine wines. The younger brother, Brad, likes romance and history and manages the business.

The Civil War-era building, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, features a tasting room, a 10,000 square foot production facility, three Civil war era underground limestone tunnels and a spacious outdoor terrace with Lake Michigan views.

Von Stiehl’s 30+ grape and fruit wine recipes use top quality ingredients from local fruit (Door County cherries), as well as West Coast-grown grapes (Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon).

But the wine merchandise and many kinds of wines is a fun shopping and tasting activity that always leads to some purchases! The wine pourers are very helpful and knowledgeable about each wine. Everyone found some favorites! There are tables outside if you want... More

We love this place. Seven years ago their wine + chocolate tasting was the biggest memory we took home from Door County. This year they are offering tastings of wine with chocolate, or nuts, or pretzels. It's a bit out of the way, but for us, they are on the way home to Chicago from Door County. If you are... More

A quick trip to southern Door County on a cold, rainy weekend prompted us to do some wine tasting. Decided to take the quick trip down to Algoma to the Von Stiehl winery after my husband said "I think that's the one where the doctor used to 'cast' the bottles. (Sure enough!) The staff was a lot of fun and... More

We stopped in here on a whim on a brief visit to Algoma. I haven't been here in many many years and was very happy to see how much it has grown yet how much it has stayed the same. The free wine tasting was fun and included 6 varieties. We were surprised by the wide variety and the quality,... More

We were in Door County for the night and I had to stop at my all time favorite winery! At most wineries I can find a selection or two that fit my taste, but there are so many wines here that it is hard to choose which ones to buy. This is the second time I have been here and... More
