The wines are amazing, and you can get a flight and enjoy it outside on the couches sprinkled throughout the property. It is a gorgeous setting! The kids even had fun checking out all the fish in the pond.
We have visited the winery about 3 times now, all in different seasons. They have beautiful grounds to sit and sip. There is also a beautiful fireplace inside however in the years I have been it has never been lit even in snowy temperatures. That would be a nice addition. We did sit by it and enjoy the time with friends. It is beautiful sitting both inside and out. There are tastings as well if you are not sure what you want to try that is a good way to start. We take home cases of our favorite to wines to enjoy throughout the year and to give a gifts to our friends and family. Bring some things to nibble on if you would like and pets are welcome. We have even seen children on the property as well. Overall a very nice way to spend the day sitting and enjoying a good glass of vino and company. Take some pictures and then put the phone away and enjoy.…
We enjoyed our stay at the Banner Elk Winery Villa. The villa is beautiful and very comfortable. We enjoyed the wine and the people we got to know there. They provided a nice elopement package that we were happy with, although information on the website is not kept up to date so I would advise people to call and visit the winery before making a decision to use it for a wedding venue. The location is close to Grandfather Mountain and the Blue Ridge Parkway so there are many beautiful options for wedding pictures outside or inside their beautiful villa.
I would think not two times, but three times before reserving this house. My friends and I reserved this house for 4 nights for the New Year. However, they canceled us without any reason or explanation why. Our guess is that someone called them and offer them more money. But we paid whatever they asked. Anyway, they left us now without being able to book something at that time, so our plans are ruined. I would NEVER do something like this. So, NO, I don’t recommend this house. Book something else if you can. One last thing that I can say is, SHAME ON YOU OWNERS!!!!!
Well, we did just come from Grandfather Winery so that factored in how this place was perceived. For atmosphere and wine selection, Grandfather is way better. This place- I liked the room, it was very comfy and I could hang out there. Liked all the art on the walls. Perfect to have wine there. But you get the flight and it's in plastic cups. Big downer. Go outside and it loses the appeal. There are houses/cabins everywhere, it just doesn't feel like a vineyard. The pond is pretty, but the building and the outdoor structures they've built are not. It needs more flowers and landscaping. But even with that, the other houses would still be there. We did the red flight- they were all good, liked the cabernet the best. Glad we went, but just good, not great. TA's buttons go from Average to Very Good, no choice for anything in between.…
A very lovely winery and the servers behind the wine bar are so helpful and fun. We got the wine flight and cheese selection. It was a nice start to the afternoon. There is some fun art hanging and adds ambiance to the place.Very relaxing place to hang out with our friends. Some of their wine are quite good.
Nice place to sit and relax as you enjoy the wine flavors being offered. Some nice gifts and flavorful wines. Enjoy the day! Four generous tastings and then buy whatever makes you happy and enjoy it in a nice atmosphere . Bring your puppies with you if they are polite.
We spend an extended weekend and had a wonderful experience. The villa is set in a beautiful location away from traffic. Staff and management are very friendly, service oriented and responsive. The freshly prepared, home cooked breakfast were delicious. We took full advantage of the patio in front of our suite, overlooking the winery, and sipping a nice glass of the local wine. The suite was huge. Nicely accented with a cozy gas fireplace and a humongous king-size bed. Very enjoyable and relaxing weekend.
Although the view was beautiful and the setting peaceful, we had several concerns throughout our stay. The check in process was odd, given the villa was open, a note was left and key in door of our room (we figured this out after a phone call). We proceeded to turn on the tv which had issues (another phone call). The housekeeping came and gave us towels at the door and came in and made the bed, and did not remove the trash, nor replenish any toiletries during our three day stay. Breakfast was fine, but sad to say housekeeping and kitchen gals were not wearing masks. We were talking to several other guests about the air conditioning and one of them called the “number” and were told to open the windows when the web site clearly states air conditioning. The last 24+ hours there was no internet on the property (another phone call) and no internet still! The welcome paper stated one wine flight complimentary during your stay, and when we went to get it, they said one complimentary wine flight per day! An on-site person is definitely needed at this venue.…
We were on our way to Linville Falls and saw the sign for the Banner Elk Winery and Villa. Several comfortable private outdoor sitting areas. We were allowed to bring our nibbles will setting outdoors enjoying the day. They offer flights, glasses or by the bottle.
