No Cherry Wine: Stone's Throw Pours Fine Wine

Just 2500 miles northeast of Napa Valley you’ll find a whole other wine country. Peaceful, unspoiled and delightfully uncrowded in Bailey’s Harbor, Door County, Wis.

The Stone’s Throw collection raises the bar for fine California wines…our wines are skillfully handcrafted here, remaining true to the tradition of artisan winemaking. With talent, passion and expertise honed over 40 years, we hand-select the finest California grapes, treat them gently and minimally, then match them to either French or American oak barrels where they rest until balanced and elegant.
