Black Star Farms wines are becoming favorites of the White House chef. They have served our 2002 A Capella Ice Wine, our Sirius Maple Dessert Wine, and, most recently, our 2004 Arcturos Pinot Gris at various dinners and luncheons. Come on into our Tasting Room and see the official invitations and menus…and taste why our wines are winning this national recognition.
We can now offer personalized labels for our wines at $1 per label, with a 12 bottle minimum. Let your imagination be your guide…we can scan a photo or drawing or just use your message.

Watch this space for updates.
Michigan consumers have won the battle!
The Michigan Senate and House have passed legislation allowing Michigan wineries to continue to ship wine to Michigan consumers, and the Governor signed the bill, with our Don Coe and State Senator, Michelle McManus looking on, during a visit to Traverse City on December 15th.
Out-of-state wineries will now also be able to ship wine to Michigan consumers, and Michigan wineries will now be able to ship wine to our consumers in many other states.
We’ve added to our growing medal collection. The Michigan Syder Competition in Grand Rapids recently awarded a Gold Medal to our Sirius Maple Dessert Wine. Also received was a Siver for our Sirius Pear Dessert Wine and a Bronze for our Pear Wine.
How about bringing one of these home to dinner? They’re all delicious.
Tom Stevenson’s The Sothebyâs Wine Encyclopedia, The Classic Reference to the Wines of the World has just been published. Black Star Farms received a V for value for money and 2 stars (Very exceptional wines. The local equivalent of a Bordeaux super-second.) We are the ONLY US winery outside of California and the Pacific Northwest to get two stars.
Hereâs what he had to say, âMichiganâs superstar boutique winery (artisinal creamery and luxury B&B inn) has risen to the top under the skillful guidance of Lee Lutes, the stateâs most gifted red-winemaker. Lutes even manages to bring a touch of class to hybrids, making a yummy Red House Red from a blend of Marechal Foch, Dornfelder, Regent and Cabernet Franc.â
