Of the 4 vineyards we attended this past weekend, by far we were most disappointed here...Don't get me wrong, we enjoyed their wines and their lawn with the live music, pond and fire pit probably was the best of all the places we attended, but their employees soured our visit...When we arrived, the bar seemed 1/2 full, yet the 3-4...

We stayed in Seven Devils, Nc to come see the leaves change the week of Oct 4-12. We have visited Banner Elk Winery twice before in the past. This most recent visit left a very bad taste in our mouths, and I don't think we will ever be back. We did a wine tasting, and were waited on by a... More

We did a wine tasting of 7 wines for $7. The hostess was very informative. The tasting room was nicely appointed and the grounds were beautiful. We went on a cool fall afternoon. After the tasting we bought a bottle of their rose`. We were each poured a glass and we went on the porch to enjoy the weather, view... More

This winery outside Banner Elk, NC has a very plush and nicely decorated tasting room with a very pleasant outdoor area with a view of the mountains and a pond on their grounds. We learned that that they don't have any food to go with the wine during the week (and just some cheese platters on the weekend), so we... More

Nestled in the North Carolina Smoky Mountains, this little winery offers surprisingly good wines across the spectrum. And the setting is lovely: an attractive building with a spacious tasting area, almost like a mountain lodge; outside a big porch with a view across a small pond up to the ridges and mountains that make the area so scenic. Back to... More

This winery is off a switch back road on 192. I loved the drive. The wine tasting room is dark, tastefully decorated and the bar, well goes on forever. Wedding, easily sits 60 people. I liked the red wine especially the Cabernet. All the grapes are grown on site. The view is lovely. Perfect for a wedding. It is quite.... More

My husband and I recently attended a wedding rehearsal dinner on the grounds of the Banner Elk Winery. The view is amazing especially as the sun is setting and lights begin to come on in the homes nestled in the mountains surrounding the property.

We had been to Banner Elk before but had not stopped at the winery. They did have some good wines. Based on the medals they showed us they seem to do very well in California Wine Competitions. I was a little disappointed that we didn’t get the cost of the wine tasting off our purchase but that was a small... More
