Hey there, Black Star Farms wine fans! Can you believe it’s already October? Time sure flies when you are having fun, and this month is one of the most exciting for us in the wine industry. With October comes the long-awaited harvest and highly anticipated fall color change, making it the busiest time for the wineries in the Traverse Wine Coast. Look for a harvest update later in October.
This month also kicks off our beloved mulled wine season. That’s right; mulled wine is back! We will be serving mulled wine/cider for $6/glass (Saturdays and Sundays only) at both of our Traverse City area tasting rooms.
If you have never tried mulled wine or need an easy, fool-proof recipe, you are in luck! Not only are we sharing our recipe, but we also have several wines and ciders available that are perfect for making this warm fall treat.
First, you need to start with a suitable base. So following are a few of our favorite wines and ciders to use.
