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

In our wine tour of North Carolina, this was a recommended stop and we were not disappointed. The winery is lovely and in a beautiful location outside the town of Banner Elk. The $7 wine tasting included three whites, three reds and a bonus taste of the Chianti. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality, but there are no sulfates... More

We found this winery on a gloomy rainy day and stepped in to a lovely tasting room. The wine is a surprise and a delight, worth a stop and purchase.

We made a little pit stop here. Was well worth it. We had a wine tasting and ended up taking 3 bottles. Every wine we tasted was lovely. One recommendation for the owners is to put on some light music in the background , as the silence made it feel like you shouldn't linger. But a beautiful setting and delicious... More
