Thanks, Coryn! We had a wonderful time. Looking forward to visiting again. We'll have another video with your interviews on the rest of the Black Star Farms amenities soon!
Thanks for your hospitality, Coryn and Kellie! We had a great time!
Hi Linda! Thanks for posting! I'm not sure, but that's really cool. I would recommend contacting St. Julian directly to see if you can get more info on the bottle itself and whether there's some kind of market for them!
Thanks, Coryn! :) It was a great night!
Thanks, Don! We love DBC!
Thanks, Mike! David and Margaret are great. As I mentioned, I'm a big fan of the Improvisation; Shannon loves the Requisite.
Thanks for the feedback and kind words, guys! Would love tips for Napa, though it may be a ways off! ;) And glad to help others add ideas to their bucket list! :)

Thank you, Mike, Josh and Leslie for watching! And thank you Dannielle and David for providing the great subject matter! :)
LOL! Tonight Shannon's like, "Um, I noticed an error in your blog." "What?" "It says Lorenzo drew up his plans thousands of miles above the Earth. I didn't know he was an astronaut." D'oh! I meant to type FEET! (I have since fixed it. Sorry, Lorenzo. :)) And Brian...LOL.
Hi there! As you can see, Michigan wines have a very loyal and passionate fan base! With all of the increased emphasis these days on putting local food on your plate, it only seems natural that the movement extend to your glass as well! Of course, you wouldn't want to choke something down -just- because it's local, but that's the beauty of it — there are tons of Michigan wineries producing GREAT wine. And the stories behind the wineries, the people behind them — they're amazing. Hope you'll decide to give some Michigan wines a chance ... you might find a bottle (or 50!) that you like!

I should note here that I was informed on Facebook that UNDERGROUND CHEESECAKE CO. at the asylum makes Amical's Black Bottom Cake and most of the restaurant's other desserts. (Cue drool.) So be sure to check them out, I want to make sure they get their due!

I will definitely put these on my list! I wanted to walk the trails, I even had a little map, but the CATERPILLARS scared me off. Dangling from every tree at eye level. (shudder) So I didn't get a chance. :( I've never been to Holland — you'll have to let me know what you find there! :)

Thanks, Anne! I have heard great things about Red Ginger, I'll have to check it out. Haven't been to Poppycock or Warehouse Lounge, either. (Where's Warehouse? I've seen Poppycock...) My other familiar favorites up there are the cajun crawfish salad at North Peak Brewery (BEST SALAD EVER), the ravioli at TraVino and the "udder delight" (ice cream on a brownie, topped with fudge) at Moomer's. I wish I could eat like that every day. :)

Ha, Josh! For the record, I still haven't figured out exactly how to describe that taste I just couldn't put my finger on! ;) Thanks for commenting guys!
Yes, sorry, was having problems with audio...
Thanks, guys! If only the FlipCam would clearly show what's on screen when I type on the computer. I'm baffled... P.S. Those socks are the softest socks EVER. :)
In the interest of full disclosure, we should note that Harding's Markets is one of our sponsors (and we appreciate that!). Also, if the camera work makes you motion sick, blame Shannon! :) He was behind the lens for this one!
Yum, I adore the sangiovese!
Thanks, Josh! I made the new graphics while Shannon was napping ... I mean, working hard ... ;)
Thanks for plugging Tweet & Taste! Next one is in April with Shady Lane Cellars!
Thanks for the post, Chris! I agree, tasting is the very best way to know if a wine is for you, so that's why it's so important (and fun!) to check out the tasting rooms at the wineries themselves. Unfortunately, I'm willing to bet there are many people who turn up their nose based on appearance and are missing out on a lot of great wines. 2 Lads' packaging is definitely tops. During the Tweet & Taste, I showed off a pic of one of the sparkling wine bottles on my kitchen table with philodendron and pothos cuttings in it. Way better than any vase, and the ultimate in recycling! ;)

Thanks, Coryn and Mike! We had a blast doing it! We can't wait for the next one. We appreciate Black Star being the "guinea pigs" on our first installment, and we appreciate both of you taking part. Glad to hear, Mike, that word about the quality of BSF's wines is getting out!
Sheesh, could I look like any more of a slob?!
