We love to stop at vineyards and wineries during our travels. Banner Elk is lovely but our tasting host, Terry (who I believe may also be a manager) lacks the finesse and tact it really takes to be a server of wine tasting. Not very attentive, and a bit pompous. Nevertheless, we listened to other tasting hosts and it could... More

We arrived at 3:30 on Saturday for a wine tasting, (the website says noon-6, Tuesday-Sunday) and we were told that the tastings ended at 4. The facility was in the process of hosting a wedding at the main winery, and the wine tastings were held in the back of the property in a barn type setting which was not a... More

We were at the winery tasting over the 4th of July, and I must say, I love the atmosphere, as much as the people! They had a great firepit going with beautiful scenery, as well as fabulous converstion and music! There was quite a few people there, but all having a wonderful time, and not over populated. The staff was... More

I visited the winery with my boyfriend after a long hike through the Appalachian mountains. Sitting down and sharing a bottle of wine on the beautiful grounds was the end to a perfect day. The staff was very professional and friendly. Would return!

The staff here were friendly and helpful and we liked the Seyval Blanc and Marechal Foch so much that we got six bottles of each to take home with us.

If you are visiting the North Carolina High Country, the Banner Elk Winery is a "must-see" attraction. I visited the Banner Elk Winery on a Sunday evening in June, and had a memorable experience. The grounds are beautiful - in front of the winery itself is a small, scenic lake - complete with tables. The expansive front porch also provides... More

Lovely afternoon at the wine tasting and enjoying the scenery. Staff was very knowledgeable about the wines and seemed to really enjoy sharing their knowledge.

The winery was short staffed when we arrived so we waited 45 minutes or so before we got up to the bar for the tasting. The ladies working were knowledgeable, but clearly under staffed so the whole experience felt like hurry up and wait. That said, it is a very nice setting. We enjoyed hanging out on the sofas by...

Spent the afternoon drinking wine. What beautiful grounds! I was lucky enough to tour the inn, definitely the place I am going to stay on my next vacation to the high country! A must see if you are in Banner Elk. The staff was friendly and informative, and lead me to their sister business, Sorrentos Bistro, which was delightful! The... More

We stayed at Best Western Plus Mountain Lodge in Banner Elk, NC one night over Labor Day and found it to be very accommodating. The staff could not have been nicer, including those at the front desk and, especially, the breakfast hostess, Wanda. They offer a FULL, free breakfast - eggs, sausage, grits, the works! Check rates online, but call... More
