Great Wine

Did the tasting. Keep the glass and visit both locations. We found many wines we liked and purchased a couple of our favorites. We will go back next time we are up there.

I visited the Old Mission peninsula location one morning. I was the only customer in the store. 3 employees never acknowledged my presence as they were all discussing their paychecks. I was looking for a particular wine they used to make but couldn't find and decided to leave. No offer of help was ever heard. They were one of the... More

Last fall my friend and I visited Black Star Farms on Old Mission Peninsula and loved it! We loved the wines, the facility and the staff. This year we decided to try the one on the Leelanau Peninsula and loved it just as much! The wines are wonderful! The farm and tasting room are equally beautiful. And the lady who... More

Instead of picking apart each winery we visited on a recent tour, I'll just say that Black Star Farms was the must-visit of the bunch. For us, it featured the best tasting wines, and what a fabulous venue. I can see why people choose to have wedding and other events there. We didn't have time to visit the cafe or... More

We chose to visit this winery on our trip to the area based on reputation. The grounds are lovely and charming - the terraced vineyard on the drive is stunning. The tasting room is spacious and was not crowded during a weekday. The pours were on the small side compared to what we've experienced at other wineries, but between the... More

We saved this stop for last as it was highly recommended by very sophisticated wine drinkers. WOW! We were so very pleased the moment we drove into the driveway. A beautiful setting, nice tasting patio, well trained staff and some of the very full bodied wines. I finally found a local Cab Franc I liked--a major accomplishment. We also stopped... More

The amount for two people to sample was ridiculous. The wait in between samples was even worse. One lady doing samples for us and a group of six. The other two ladies "working" by the register just yapping away about personal stuff probably should have assisted the lady doing samples. We just stood there waiting for the next sample while...

Such a lovely setting! The wine tasting was informative and good! Tried the wine flight (several options) and bought wine to take home. Even got to keep the cute glasses!
