The winery sits on a few acres of land in the beautiful Town of Banner Elk. We went there with our family which included 4 children under the age of 8. While we sat down and had nice glasses of wine, the children were able to play and run around the grounds without any problem. They were on the grass... More

We enjoyed a fill day in banner elk. One of our many stops was banner elk winery. The staff was very friendly. Liked that they let our dog bingo come in. Just wish they had more sweet wines. The jalapeño sangria was very interesting.

We never go to Banner Elk without going to this place! The entire staff is truly amazing! For the last four years we go on Saturdays to hear Dillon Cable sing. The grounds are great. They have a gorgeous fireplace and comfortable seating inside and out! I can't wait to go back again and try the new wines this Fall.... More

We decided to check this out after having some of their white wine at a friend's house in Banner Elk. It is a truly beautiful place. The staff were all very friendly, helpful and informative. We enjoyed the wines we tasted and they even had a brew to pacify our friend who loves his beer! Of course we went home... More

We have a second home in Banner Elk about 4 miles from the winery. We go over occasionally and do a wine tasting and sit on the front porch. Very relaxing. The staff is very friendly and service is good.

My husband and I were here for the wine tasting. We then bought a bottle to enjoy outside. We were also able to pick blueberries which was fun! We will definitely return! It is a nice place to unwind!

We had the Cabernet Suite, probably the best in the house. Large and thankfully with many windows for cross ventilation as air conditioning did not work. Manager, Terri, assured us she had called for A/C service. Service never happened and other guests were moving from room to room in search of a room where A/C worked. Knowing something about A/C,...

My son's wedding was here. We stayed 3 nights, our party filled every room and all were impressed with their accommodations. The site is lovely with multiple areas (balcony, patio, large porch) for family members to relax and mingle. We were especially impressed with Terri and how she worked beyond the call of duty to arrange other activities (women's tea,... More

I highly suggest a visit to this winery. It is in a lovely spot. The staff is always pleasant and the wines are great. I am not normally a Rose' drinker but the one here is truly wonderful! It is comfy inside if it is raining, but with lots of lovely outdoor seating if the day is nice.
