Michigan wine pioneer Ed O'Keefe led incredible life fit for Hollywood

We wouldn’t be here without his vision. Our deepest condolences go to his family and our friends at Chateau Grand Traverse.

In the early years they laughed at him and even coined his wild experiment to plant European grape varietals in northern Michigan “O’Keefe’s Folly."

These two shared a wonderful day together at Black Star Farms in Suttons Bay, MI. From their intimate ceremony with close family and friends looking over the vineyard and Lake Michigan, to their beautifully written vows, to the open air reception; everything was perfect for these two and we couldn't be happier for them!

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!
