Have you ever visited a winery? We enjoyed a trip to the beautiful gardens of Stone’s Throw Winery in Door County, Wisconsin.
A couple of weeks ago my entire family and I were vacationing in Baileys Harbor and drove past a pretty winery and decided to make sure we took a trip there before returning home. I’m so glad we did.
The building is somewhat wedge-shaped and just outside is a patio surrounded by flowers of all kinds. We sampled wines and small plates outside while jazz-type music flowed from the speakers.
Whenever I gaze at lush gardens, I’m always inspired to change something in my own yard. I have all of the flowers shown in the photo below in my own garden already – rudbeckia, coneflower, phlox, and daylilies.
I’ve been looking at evergreens to create a natural fence and I like the appearance of the arborvitaes in the background. Hubby and I went to the nursery this weekend and found some to add to our landscape, so I’m excited about that. We want something to create privacy next to the fire pit area we’re creating.
The beautiful gardens of Stone’s Throw Winery include pretty raised beds built with wood and corrugated sheet metal. They contain a mix of vegetables and flowers.
A pretty pergola frames one side of the garden.
Pretty petunias line the canopy of the pergola while morning glories wind their way up the posts.
Look closely and you’ll see tomatoes and zinnias in the raised garden beds. I was happy to see the winery used a lot of my favorite plantings in their fragrant gardens.
One flower I don’t have in my garden is the nasturtium. They look so pretty here that I’m going to make sure I include them next year.
A fire pit is nestled in the midst of the gardens at Stone’s Throw Winery. We plan to use a similar style of stone when we install ours. We already have the fire pit; we just need to cut the grass out so hubby won’t have to move the chairs when mowing the lawn.
This pretty display of wine barrels includes the winery’s sign. It’s such a beautiful and peaceful place to enjoy a glass (or two) of wine with tasty appetizers.
I also spied olive trees growing in pots. I have a fig tree in a pot but would love to have olive trees like this!
Even if I didn’t drink wine, I’d still love visiting the beautiful gardens of Stone’s Throw Winery. Next year we plan to go to Michigan and we’re already looking at which nearby wineries to see!
