When we hit the wine trails, the beverages may be the stars of the show, but we also cherish the opportunities to try new restaurants and revisit old favorites, meet up with familiar faces and make new acquaintances. Here's a peek at what we were up to during our most recent trip to the Northern Michigan wine trails, Jan. 14-16.
After a surprisingly smooth drive up the Lower Peninsula, we arrived in Traverse City Friday afternoon and I, being a total salad bar addict, had Schelde's on my mind. After a quick lunch, we headed on to the Leelanau Peninsula, ready to be dazzled by the Inn at Black Star Farms. As I mentioned in another post, we'd visited Black Star Farms' Suttons Bay main location many a time, but had never set foot inside the inn. We'd heard rave reviews, and we were champing at the bit to see it for ourselves. And we weren't disappointed, to say the least. (Check out our in-depth recap of the Inn here.)
