Great experience. The sommelier was very knowledgeable. Wine tasting offered a number of wines. They had a wonderful blueberry wine this time of year. They still had some bottles of blueberry ice wine. We were able to taste the ice wine and it is excellent!! Came home with a bottle of Blueberry Ice Wine!

This is one of many local wineries in the area that has a tasting room. They all have small pours (1 oz). Overall, this one had the best tasting wines; both red and whites were good. I liked all of them. Wine isa preference that is very much according to individual taste.The red Marechal Foch was very much like a... More

Banner Elk Winery had been on my list for a long time and I was excited to finally find the time to make the 3 hour trek. We found the parking very inadequate (no designated handicapped parking either). We arrived to hear someone singing, very loud and quite off key. When we went to the bar, no one really greeted...

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...
