Experience an extraordinary Harvest Dinner at Black Star Farms Suttons Bay in the heart of Northern Michigan Wine Country. During the summer months these exquisite dinners are held atop our lush estate vineyard with scenic views of Grand Traverse Bay and the gorgeous rolling countryside of the Leelanau Peninsula. Our creative farmstead cuisine is inspired by the best locally sourced ingredients, expertly paired with Black Star Farms wines. Seasonal vegetables, fruits and proteins are sourced from our area’s finest farms including our own.
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.

I was at the 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 a 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!
