Whitecap Winery of Door County was inspired by the whitecap waves on the lakes that surround us being on the tip of the Door County peninsula. Our new labels, depicting crashing waves at the Plum Island lighthouse were created by a well known local artist.  Our grapes are harvested by family, friends and neighbors and many local businesses are serving and selling our wines.  We are proud of being a winery that is known for our local connections starting from our family roots, to the grapes we grow, to the wine in your glass. 


Producing flavorful wines first begins with understanding which grape varieties do well on the tip of the peninsula of Door County.

We chose grapes that are cold climate grapes and are also disease resistant that have the potential to make good wine.

The names of our wines are the names of the grapes from which they are made.  Marquette wine is made from Marquette grapes, for example. From the pruning of the vines in spring to harvest in the fall, we pay attention to the best practices to produce quality wines.
