ARCTUROS DINING SERIES
Our popular Harvest Dinners have a been refreshed for 2020!
Experience culinary excellence in the heart of Northern Michigan Wine Country.
We celebrate our winery’s vineyard to table practices in which grapes are locally grown, harvested and then processed at our two Traverse City area wineries. We honor seasonal harvest bounties, a farm to fork practice our culinary team takes to heart by growing, raising and sourcing from both our own and regional farms.
Each event will feature a distinctly local element, like musical accompaniment, an expert-led morel hunt, or al fresco dining atop the estate vineyard.
The evening begins at 6:00 PM with a welcoming reception featuring a specialty-themed craft cocktail. Dinner is served at elegant communal tables where conversations and striking up new friendships are encouraged.
During service our chef will share the inspiration behind the evening’s menu and a winery representative will talk about the wine pairings and share updates on new releases and vintages.
Seats are limited, make your reservation today!
Prices are per person and include welcome cocktail, dinner, wine pairings, tax & service fee.

I was at the Arcturos/Harvest Dinner, Morels in May and it was a great experience. Delicious food, great wine and fantastic company! I definitely recommend and will go back.
We were fortunate enough to experience an Arcturos/Harvest Dinner food and wine pairing event and all we can say was that it truly was a magical evening!!! It was our wedding anniversary and dinner was set in the vineyard! All around us the scenery was breathtaking, the food and wine were fantastic!!! Black Star Farms is a remarkable winery, you’re missing out if you’re in the area and don’t stop in!
