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
