Holiday Events on the Farm

With holiday and travel plans looking to be a little different this year, Black Star Farms has planned events to deliver fabulous dining experiences, either safely catered to-go in the safety of your own home, or safely spaced in small numbers at their Inn, rated Best Wine Country Hotel 2020 by USA Today Reader’s Choice Awards.

What’s uncorked this winter?

Thanksgiving Dinner To-Go! Offering a full dinner for up to 6, the elevated menu is based on this traditional feast, complete with wine pairings and locally-sourced ingredients for people to enjoy safely in their homes. Details and ordering at

Santa promises to be back again this year at the Inn, with his new face shield and distancing! While children won’t be on Santa’s lap whispering their wish lists, spacing squares will position them to safely tell him what they hope he brings them when he comes down their chimney. Brunch with Santa will be held on Saturday, Dec. 12, with family seated at separate tables, appropriately spaced. Details, seating and tickets coming soon at

For family and friend groups looking for a private dining experience, the Inn at Black Star Farms is offering Chef Choice wine-paired dining experiences for any special occasion like anniversaries, birthdays, elopements or holiday festivities. Inquire with our events team and get details at

Who cannot wait for New Year’s Eve to welcome in a new one?! The tradition continues with the NYE exquisite black-tie wine-paired dinner in the Inn, with a new twist. Instead of the communal tables, dining groups will be seated at their own tables, appropriately spaced. Kiss 2020 good bye and book NYE at
