This winery is located off a side road near Banner Elk, NC. The tasting room and sales area is convenient, except for the lack of adequate parking, especially handicapped parking. Wine is excellent, if a bit expensive. The selections are somewhat limited and tend toward the drier type wines. This would make a good side trip, but would not constitute... More

Very nice and cozy. The day we went, the weather was bad, cold, gloomy, and misty. We went in and did our tastings and then bought a bottle and sat on the warm couch by the fire! The wines were interesting and enjoyable.

Like it states in my title we only visited the winery not the B&B. Also I wouldn't say that we're "wine experts" neither, so this review is really isn't really aimed at those who are. As stated in the name, the winery is just outside the mountain town of Banner Elk, which is a rather small/sleepy little town in the... More

Friendly wine pourer, explained the wines thoroughly. Gave us some pointers for good restaurants. Tasting room was nice with several seating areas and a fireplace. Would highly recommend. Loved the blueberry port, which wasn't ready to sell yet, but she let us try it.

When you drive onto the grounds they are absolutely beautiful, so I had high hopes for this place. As we entered the facility it was very well decorated with plush sitting areas and a huge charming fireplace. It went downhill from there. Not one person welcomed us, so we helped ourselves to the bathroom. Then, we awkwardly made our way... More

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
