I haven't been to a ton of wineries, only about 4 or 5, but this one is my favorite so far. I love the outside area! They have corn hole boards set up, horse shoe and baci ball. Or you can take a walk around their small pond. The wine and sangria are great! I love their jalapeño sangria! I... More

On a prior weekday visit, my husband and I had the place almost to ourselves. Recently, a girlfriend and I visited on a Saturday. What a difference! We were lucky to arrive ahead of a number of other visitors, and were served almost immediately by a very knowledgeable bartendress. A couple of the wines were excellent, especially the reserve wines... More

Great wine. Did not taste a wine that I did not like. We tasted then sat out on patio and enjoyed a glass of wine.

We have visited Banner Elk Winery several times. We always enjoy going there to sip wine and sit on the porch or inside by the fire place and just relax. The local wine is very good. Great venue to go and hang out with friends. They have a fire pit for night time and a Bocce ball court. Always fun!

We visited this winery yesterday (June 28, 2016), and we had a very relaxing experience accompanied by a good bottle of white wine, cheese and crackers. Definitely will return!

We were not informed of the $10 per person tasting until we went to purchase a bottle of wine. We paid $46 for 1 bottle of wine plus 2 tastings. I would say a bit over priced.

On a nice cold day in April what better way to spend some time then try some wine from the locals. The staff were very nice and the pour was much more generous compared to the fire vineyard visited in the same area. Picked up a bottle of the house white wine that is served in local restaurants up there.... More

By far, the finest winery in the region! The wines were fabulous and the service and knowledge of the server were top notch. The tasting fee ($10) was a bit high but every pour was ample and sufficient to experience and appreciate each of their wines. All of their wines are very distinctive and have unique character and flavors that... More
