TASTES of Black Star Farms* is housed in one of North America’s largest and most innovative redevelopment projects, the Village at Grand Traverse Commons.

We offer wine samples by the glass along with appetizers and desserts all day (see menu here). We do wine and spirits tasting daily until 5pm, and serve an amazing dinner (by reservation) on Tuesday-Saturday evenings. Hours: Sunday from Noon to 4pm Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 11 am to 7 pm Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 11 am to 9 pm *Tasting room only.
