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.

My girlfriend and I went to Boone for a romantic weekend. The Banner Elk Winery was high on our list for a fun activity. We had fun, despite our experience at the winery. It started poorly when our wine pourer, Dave, only had eyes for my GF. We were clearly a couple, but Dave was only talking to her. I... More

This winery is not only beautiful on the outside, but on the inside as well! It seems to be almost a hidden jewel, as it is tucked away within the town of Banner Elk.
