We all know about Black Friday, but have you heard of Giving Tuesday?

According to GivingTuesday, a non-profit organization, “GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement that unleashes the power of radical generosity around the world.”

The annual Giving Tuesday celebration takes place this year on November 30th, and we at Black Star Farms wanted to join the movement and find a way to give back to our community this holiday season.

We have partnered with the Northwest Michigan Community Action Agency here in Traverse City and will be donating a portion of our sales to their Greatest Need Fund. Join us on Friday 11/26 - Tuesday 11/30 for wine by the glass or wine flights where we will be donating $1 for every wine by the glass and $2 for every wine flight we sell over the course of those 5 days.

We will have a donation box if you would like to donate any additional funds and there will be a few volunteers from NMCAA visiting both our tasting rooms on Saturday to answer any of your questions.

To learn more about the NMCAA and the amazing work they do for our community, check out their website https://www.nmcaa.net

Our little NWMI community has done so much to help uplift Black Star Farms and other local businesses during these uncertain times and we can think of no better way to express our gratitude than returning that same generosity. Thank you 💙

We had a surprise engagement proposal during our Ultimate Experience Package yesterday! After an amazing breakfast, we started the day with a gorgeous hike through our trails. We paused for photos atop the vineyard at our wedding site and one of our guests popped the question! And she said “Yes!”

We had one couple on their honeymoon, some returning guests, and many new faces .

The day was full of wine education, tastings, a cooking demo and culminated with a private wine-paired dinner. It was a day where many friendships were made.

Check out a “day in the life of a BSF Ultimate Experience.”

Our next Ultimate Experience Package is Jan 7-9 2022.

My husband knows me well! I love this wine! Merry Christmas to me!
Since we couldn’t do the #womp Mac & Cheese tour this year, Libby and I did our own - couldn’t do it without the Bubbly Noveau. Cheers to everyone at Black Star and the whole wine trail!
My husband and I went to Black Star Farms during a vacation several years back and we bought a couple of bottles of wine to take home. Well fast forward to last we, we made a first time online order and it was quick shipping. Not only that but they included a sweet photopgraphic thank you note. We also received free shipping and no tax due to buying 6 bottles. Our total was only $96.00 and they included 3 bottles of Pinot for free. We love our vino so we will be returning customers. We have already spread the word to our Florida friends!!
Enjoying our last bottle from our anniversary trip to TC! We had this with our anniversary dinner at the Boathouse Restaurant, and had to swing by to grab a few bottles to bring home! Will need to make another trip soon!
Thank you!
Are your e-gift cards redeemable for wine purchases online?
When will your winery be open?
Just took advantage of the free shipping offer to order some favorites from Black Star Farms. Thank you!
We toasted the completion of our new home with a 2013 bottle of Acapella Ice Wine! Still awesome. Saved this bottle for a special occasion!! Sorry for the lack of class on the wine cooler!!
Thanks for being open for pickup today. Wine is so essential!
