Day of shopping and wine tasting
Egg Harbor Travel Blog› entry 2 of 3 › view all entries
Well day one was dedicated the shopping day. Which Door County has plenty of shopping opportunities for its guests. We decide to scope things out and drive the rest of the way up the peninsula to see what type of shopping opportunities there were. Let me say now, I am not great and just driving and shopping, especially when there are state parks along the way. So what we designated as shopping day quickly turned into lets just hike to this beach quick. Then, lets follow this trail for a bit. Well we did make it back for some shopping but it just seemed to make sense. We should save on gas, and if we were by some hiking trails now, then rather than driving back tomorrow for our hiking day, we should stop and hike now. So we did.
We also made our visit that evening to a few wineries.
The second winery was very popular. Door County Winery, after walking their shelves and finding the bar, you almost had to fight your way up there. Why? Because they had no limit on you samples of wine. It was great! We ran into a couple of older ladies (in there 60's) and they told us they come out every Saturday. The go out to eat, then hit up the wine tasting almost like they were getting their pre-drink on, and then they go out with their husbands. These were some fun ladies, and they did not hold back. Ordering the same drink 4 or 5 times, before finally choosing their purchase for the evening and joining their husbands in the car. We definitely took some lessons. This place has Brenda's favorite wine, Razzle Dazzle wich is a rasberry flavored wine and is very good. But we walked out again with two bottles of "sunset splash" a grape, apple-cherry wine that is a semi-sweet and very good. We stopped at another small town on the drive back, found some cheese spread and returned to our hotel room with some bottles of wine, pretzals and cheese. A good finish to the day.
