    Really? No mention of Michigan’s Black Star Farms’ Arcturos Pinot Gris? Best of class in the Pinot Gris/Grigio $15 and over category.

      We’re big Black Star Farms fans at Midwest Wine Press, we did an entire story on their Pinots earlier this year. The story is in the Michigan section of Midwest Wine Press. Currently, I’m at the Michigan Wine Competition in Lansing and the Black Star Farms wines are excellent.
