The Detroit Wine Organization (DWO) invites Black Star Farms and winemaker Lee Lutes to serve as Honorary Wine Chair for the 6th Annual Detroit Uncorked, where Black Star Farms is also being honored as the Winery of the Year.

Detroit Uncorked is one of the Midwest’s largest wine events, drawing over 400 wine-lovers to Dearborn’s Ford Conference and Event Center to sample hundreds of wines, great food, live entertainment and a silent auction. Event proceeds benefit The Children’s Center, one of Michigan’s largest providers of services to kids and families in-need. To-date, Detroit Uncorked has raised more than $350,000 for The Children’s Center.

Lee Lutes and Winery Administrator Laura Lawson will be attending the event on September 24th on behalf of Black Star Farms.  The event starts at 6pm and concludes at 10 p.m. Black Star Farms will be sampling eight different wines in the General Admission Area and a premium pour for the VIP area.

This year the DWO is shining the spotlight on Michigan wineries as well as Michigan craft beers. “We are honored to be named as the winery of the year at this prestigious event with a Michigan wine feature. It is great to be in the spotlight alongside the previous winners from California and other well-known wine regions,” notes Lee Lutes, Head
Winemaker at Black Star Farms.
