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!

They offer several options for reasonably-priced tastings depending on your liking, or you can choose your own wines and make up a tasting. The farm is beautiful and the restaurant looked really cool, although we didn't have time to come in. Definitely a very busy, more commercial place, but we loved it anyhow.

We had a really nice time tasting wine at Black Star Farms. It was a relatively quick stop but we enjoyed ourselves. The wines were very unique and the staff was friendly.

Black Star Farms in Suttons Bay certainly lived up to all of the hype. They have wine tastings until 6pm, and a wine bar from 6-8 pm. We arrived after 6pm. The wine bar does not have tastings, but they offer flights, full and half glasses of wine, and a few small plate food options. We were pleased to find... More

No trip to Traverse City is complete without a visit to Black Star Farms. Great Location, Great Wine and Very Nice. My personal favorite is the Late Harvest Riesling. Would love to stay in their bed and breakfast sometime......Bucket List!

We had an outstanding visit to Black Star Farms. The wine was outstanding. I particularly recommend the Pinot Blanc and the Brut, but there was a really wide selection of excellent wines. The hospitality made the visit special, with a friendly and knowledgable person pouring for us. One of the best wine experiences I have had in Michigan. Highly recommended.
