Enjoyed the wine tasting experience. Too bad they didn't ha ve something in between tastings (crackers etc). more »
This is the email I sent to the company and the reply was thanks for the email: I wanted to express my disappointment with your tasting room. My family (6 of us) payed for your premium tasting and had a great time. The menu we were given had member prices and non member prices. At no the end of the menu were discount prices for cases so we ask Sam if we buy 2 Cases do we get the 20 percent off and he said yes. Being non members we assumed the was 20 percent off the non member prices. We decided to buy 2 cases. Nobody would help us get the 24 bottles so we searched around for the bottles (which was difficult because my parents are handicapped). When we got to the register we were told that we don’t get that discount. I went back to Sam And he said the menu was for members only (even though it has prices for both) and said we don’t get the 20 percent off even though he told us yes earlier. After spending $150 for the tasting I’m disappointed about the lack of help and poor communication. So instead of buying 24 bottles and we were talking about looking into the membership we bought nothing and will never be back. I never received an apology from the company. If this is how they do business they will learn that treating customers like this will hurt the bottom line. What they did not is one of the people with us is opening a 7 million dollar wine bar in Detroit and was considering them for an exclusive spot.
We were there 2 weeks ago and it was awesome! Tova assisted us with our tastings and she was great! Very knowledgeable and an assist to the Black Star Winery! Thank you for a most enjoyable experience! We visited 5 wineries that day and Black Star was the best!
