We traveled to the Northwest corner of the state to a beautiful winery in Leelanau Peninsula, Black Star Farms. Upon entering the peninsula you leave behind the hustle and bustle of everyday life and find lush farmland, beautiful wineries, and charming local stores.
Driving into Black Star Farms you pass by grapevines growing along the hillside:
For those who want to spend more time exploring the Black Star Farms properties you can stay at the Black Star Inn, which includes eight exclusive Guestrooms:
We made our way to the tasting room and sampled a variety of Black Star wines including the 2010 Arcturos Sur Lie Chardonnay and the 2008 Isidors Choice Pinot Noir. Perhaps the greatest treat was the Leelanau Cheese Company’s award-winning raclette cheese we enjoyed with our wines.
Visiting a winery is an amazing experience and if you have visited Black Star Farms, you can always toast to the memories by picking up a bottle of Black Star (we have several varieties) from Plum Market. What Michigan wineries have you visited? We’d love to hear about your experiences!
