Tis’ the Season for Gift Giving

Whichever holiday you celebrate this time of the year, you most likely do so with the accompaniment of wine, spirits, and delicious nibbles. With two Traverse City area tasting rooms and an online store packed with great holiday gifts, Black Star Farms has many ideas for your loved ones and friends this season. I’m here as Santa’s helper to inspire your gift giving, and offer you recommendations based on which wines are drinking the best this season and unique gifts to complement. To make it easier, here are four categories of gift giving.

About the Writer, Olivia Kiel

As a Manager at the Old Mission Peninsula Tasting Room and blogger for Black Star Farms, I get the opportunity to write and learn about wine (two of my favorite things) every day. Over the years I’ve developed a passion for everything Black Star Farms by working alongside the company’s best and pouring its finest wines for guests from all over the world. I have a Bachelor of Science degree from Ferris State University where I studied Writing and Business and have been a Northern Michigan resident for about three years. When I’m not pouring wine, you’ll likely find me with a good book, enjoying the outdoors, or tasting something new and exciting at a local winery. Thank you for reading my posts, and don’t hesitate to say hello next time you visit Black Star Farms Old Mission. Cheers!
