ARCTUROS DINING SERIES
We celebrate our winery’s vineyard-to-table practices where we grow our grapes locally, then harvest, process and bottle them at our two area wineries. We embrace our seasonal harvest bounties, a farm-to-fork practice our culinary team takes to heart by growing, raising, and sourcing from our own and regional farms.
The evening begins with a welcome reception featuring a specialty-themed craft cocktail followed by dinner at a large feasting table where conversations and new friendships abound.
Our Estate Chef will share the inspiration behind the evening’s menu. In addition, a winery representative will discuss the wine pairings and share updates on new releases and vintages.
Prices are per person and include a welcome cocktail, dinner, wine pairings, tax & service fee.
Friday, May 13, 2022 – Local Mushroom Dinner
The evening begins at 6 PM with an optional guided mushroom hunt on our property hosted by regional foraging experts from Forest Garden Organic Farm in Maple City. Jim Moses, along with his wife, Linda Grigg, has grown shiitake mushrooms for more than 30 years and has taught cultivation and identification classes at Northwestern Michigan College. He has also been foraging wild mushrooms for over 40 years and has earned his MDARD certification to sell wild mushrooms.
After your informative hike, you will return to the Inn for a cocktail reception featuring a special mushroom-themed libation at 6:30 PM, followed by dinner at 7:00 PM.
$175 per person

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!
