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

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.
