Woods in the Morning, Wine in the Afternoon
Spend the mornings learning to read the landscape, understand its past, live its present, and anticipate its future in the rich ecosystems of Door County, where natural phenomena seduce the spirit and transfix the mind. Field walks, plant identifications, and stimulating discussions heighten one’s appreciation of nature. Then, enjoy leisurely afternoons discussing the scientific and cultural dimensions of wine while indulging in some delectable wine tasting sessions.
