I do a few wine pieces that don’t always find their way to this blog – not much, but a few.

I was asked several months ago to do a piece on Michigan wine for Black Star Farms. I visited their very impressive operation near Sutton’s Bay, Mi. last summer.

Coryn Briggs, marketing guru for Black Star, wrote me a few months back about making one of 12 guest column submissions for 2011. I took a piece I actually wrote for Madison Magazine, an upscale quarterly publication in Anderson, and re-wrote it for the Black Star winery website blog.

They added my piece to their blog today. Here is a link to the story on their site.
