Blackstar Farms

Blackstar Farms bills itself as "An Agricultural Destination." And it is. It's a spendy bed-and-breakfast; a winery; a creamery; a stable; a farmers' market.

We enjoy Blackstar Farms' merlot, which is one of the best red wines you can find in this northern clime. The oaked chardonnay is good as well. If fruit wine wrinkles your nose, Blackstar's pear wine might lead you to a wine metanoia; it's light and crisp and refreshing. We also love its raclette cheese and herbed cheese spreads. The farmers' market is a work in progress, but we've gotten some good locally grown food products there.
