Mark's Top Wine Pick Jan 12, 2018 - Red House Red & Rosé

Black Star Farms

If you are looking for a wine you can find in your local grocery store this brand is most likely there!  "Red House Red" and "Red House Rosé" by Black Star Farms.  The winery is very well known and has been featured at many restaurants throughout the state.  Located at 10844 E Revold Rd, Suttons Bay, MI 49682 on the 45th parallel that is along the same line as many other premier wine producing regions.

Red House Red red wine label

"Red House Red" is a blend of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Pinot Noir and Foch.  It is a delicious medium bodied with fresh berry fruit aromas such as raspberry and blackberry. There are flavors of oak, vanilla and spice.  This wine will pair well with grilled food, hearty red pasta sauces and even pizza.  Being a red wine it can be aged on your shelf for 2 to 4 years and may taste smoother with age.  So buy one for you and one to age and compare.  At the price point of $15.00 it is a great choice for any dinner.

Red House Rose rose wine label

"Red House Rosé" is a remarkable light bodied combination of Vidal, Dornfelder and Foch where you can taste strawberry, watermelon and ending with a subtle red licorice flavor.  This sweet flavored summer wine goes well with barbecue and spicy dishes.  Also quite affordable coming in at $12.50 it won't disappoint.


Black Star Farms is a wonderful place to visit but if you can't make it to their tasting rooms in Suttons Bay and Old Mission you can go to the VinBar in Ann Arbor to try their wine.  If you want to buy bottles and have your own in home tasting experience you can most likely find it in your local grocery store.


Reference my review of Black Star Farms on January 10, 2018 for more information on the winery.
