The 2021 Northville Food & Wine Festival is pleased to welcome back our friends from Michgan's famous Leelanau Peninsula as vendors at the event.
Founded in 1998, Black Star Farms has become a true one-of-a-kind destination nestled among the scenic rolling hills of the Leelanau Peninsula. The international acclaimed wines, luxurious Inn, decadent wine paired culinary events and unparalleled hospitality has become a unique way for wine lovers to retreat to the heart of Northern Michigan Wine Country.
Today the estate features a hillside vineyard that welcome you upon arrival, a luxury Inn, unique event venues, an award-winning winery and tasting room, a distillery, a farm-to-table café, equestrian facility, and hiking trails.
In 2007 Black Star Farms Old Mission opened in what used to be the popular Underwood Farms. It now houses a state of the art wine processing facility and cozy tasting room surrounded by views of vineyards, orchards, and Grand Traverse Bay. The Wineries at Black Star Farms have achieved state, national, and international awards for their exceptional wines and spirits.
The region is fast becoming recognized for producing fine wines. Liquor.com named Leelanau Peninsula one of the 8 Stunning Wine Regions to Discover in 2017. The “lake effect” climate enables the growth of classic vinifera grape varieties such as Chardonnay, Riesling, Cabernet Franc, and Pinot Noir. Black Star Farms varietal wines are regionally expressive and of high character.
Their fruit is sourced from both the proprietor’s vineyards and local grower partners on Leelanau and Old Mission Peninsulas. This diversity allows Black Star Farms to obtain consistent quality across vintages, with their wines reflecting this quality, from the premium Arcturos label to sparkling and fruit wines, and represent the best efforts of a finely-skilled winemaking team.
