We googled wineries in the Blowing Rock area. We narrowed our list down to this and Grandfather Winery (See its own review) for a Sunday-after church outings. We started at Banner Elk. We picnicked by their pond and headed to the winery for a tasting and music. The young lady giving the tasting was knowledgable and pleasant. The music was... More

The Banner Elk Winery and Villa is a very special place. We only spent one night. It was so peaceful and quiet, and the wine tasting is the best we've tried in North Carolina. We were visiting in Boone, North Carolina on business, and found this to be a great, convenient place to stay... and the wine tasting was free... More

Went after horseback riding with our 10 year old and loved it. Really comfortable and great staff. We are not rose drinkers but this one is so good we purchased bottles to take home. Only negatives - you cannot purchase logo glasses and they need more outdoor seating. Regardless we liked the wines and we will visit again.

The Villa is richly and comfortably decorated and offers a number of lovely rooms to choose from (we got a chance to see them all). The living area and den, with a fireplace, are open to guests, as is the kitchen (a nice option for storing cold drinks, etc.). The hosts, Terri and Lee, were extremely nice and friendly, and...

What a surprise! A stately home on the hill with huge guest rooms combining elegant furnishings with comfort and modern conveniences. Terri treated us like friends and we could enjoy sitting on the great porches overlooking the pond and hills while sipping the excellent Banner Elk Red and White from the winery just a few yards away. Anyone who needs... More

Far beyond any expectation! even in the off-season, we were beyond impressed! From Terri's amazing hospitality at the Villa to the excellent wines served by the friendly staff at the Winery, this week has been a week to remember! The mountainous view and the luxury of the Villa didn't leave any room for the cold weather to bother! I would... More

Beautiful "home" with an amazing staff. All were so friendly and welcoming. Lee cooked us two excellent breakfasts. Suzanne and Brandi provided us with an informative and comfortable wine tasting experience. The blueberry wine is a must try! And Terry is a wonderful host! We are already looking forward to our next visit.

Everything about this place is excellent! Beautiful villa and property, delicious breakfast, snacks, and wine, and truly wonderful people to make my stay better than I ever could have asked for.

Our room (Cabernet) was large, beautifully furnished/decorated and the bed is super comfy. Our bathroom was also quite large and the jacuzzi tub was nice! The Chef, Lee, went out of his way... More
