Nice wine selection, friendly staff. Be sure to stop here to find the wine of your taste. We prefer reds & found a couple bottles to take home to share with friends.

Over and above the exceptional natural beauty of the Leelanau Peninsula, this working farm offers much more than its lovely wine tasting room...a delicious farm-to-table restaurant, a welcoming inn, stable, hiking trails and acres of well tended vines and crops. The Arcturos Late Harvest Riesling is one of our 'go-to' wines! Many other wineries and quaint small towns to visit... More

Black Star Vineyards have fantastic wines. Another good place to discover local, dry reds. Another discovery there were the brandy options. Didn't expect that, but left with a couple of nice bottles in addition to our wine purchases.

I love Black Star Farms! Their Pinot Noir is my favorite red wine. We stopped here for a wine tasting during my bachelorette party and it was by far my favorite vineyard. Their wine, service, and atmosphere was the best.

The layout was very nice. I went with a few friends. We were so happy with the experience that we went 2... More

The bartender was extremely rude. My fiancé and I had just gotten engaged and we gave each other a kiss or two and were nuzzling while waiting for our next wine pour and he very rudely told us this wasn't a bar but a tasting room and that belonged in a bar. This is the winery my fiancé was originally... More

I remember when we came here, we instantly loved the vibe and feel of the place. We each bought a bottle of wine simply because everyone was very nice and it felt warm and welcoming.

We stopped here for some tastings and to let the kids see the animals. We wine tasted outside and the staff member who assisted us was fantastic. She was very pleasant to talk to and was knowledgeable about the wines she offered. She even allowed the kids a tasting of sparkling juice which was a nice touch. The area with... More
