This was one of seven wineries we stopped at during our wine tour of Old Mission Peninsula (myself & future daughter-in-law with chauffeured driver). Our server greeted up immediately, helped with our selections, and educated us with each pour. Although we felt a little "lost" sitting at such a huge circular bar in a large room, our needs were met... More

This was our 3rd or 4th visit since they opened in 1999 and it was, as always, excellent. Beautiful large clean suite, great housekeeping, friendly staff and an excellent breakfast. 15 years ago on our first visit we were met by Don, an owner, and this weekend he was there greeting us for breakfast again. Gives it a very nice... More

My parents and I had a wonderful experience in the tasting room. The majority of the wines we sampled were top notch. We all thought the whites were better than the reds. We had a wonderful server(I never got her name, but I know she teaches English at a charter school). She took the time to answer all our questions... More

Wines, service, experience overall was top notch! Be sure to see the inn as well as the tasting rooms. Incredibly beautiful and such a great experience! Definitely our favorite of the three wineries we visited. Mother/Daughter team working the tasting room/store made us feel so comfortable and really helped us make our choices. There were so many delicious choices that... More

We love Black Star Farms--both the Inn and the Winery. The grounds are beautiful and we always enjoy walking around the farm watching the horses in the pasture surrounding the winery. Their wine is superb. This is a "must visit" when on the Leelanau Wine Trail.

The natural beauty of the property is outstanding. A stay at the Inn is a memory that will stay with you. In the beautiful lobby, you are greeted by friendly staff who give you a personal tour of the Inn, there is also a welcome letter in the room outlining times for the hospitality room and breakfast. The room was... More

My boyfriend surprised me with a weekend getaway to Traverse City/Suttons Bay and I could not have dreamed of a better place than Black Star Farms. We were greeted with a wonderful reception including wine and appetizers. Our room was large with a fireplace, huge king-sized bed, and all the charm of a countryside cottage. We had a relaxing massage... More

After going to several other wineries that day, I was disappointed by Black Star Farms. It was very crowded and there was no space initially for a tasting. You needed to keep your eye on the center bar for an open spot to open up. That makes waiting around not as enjoyable as you have to worry about making sure... More
