Black Star Farms was an amazing experience! My husband and I were treated to wine all evening! The room offered a tasting, several full glasses of wine at cocktail/apps hour, as well as a bottle for the room! The chef was incredible and the apps were delicious! It would be a fabulous getaway for any wine loving couple. Thanks for the wonderful stay!
