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 wasn't jealous, it was actually almost funny, but RUDE. At one point I wanted to wave my hand in front of his eyes and say, "hey buddy, there's two of us here". The actual wines were not that impressive, despite their award winning status. We finished with a summer sangria. Dave told us it was only complete when the fruit was at it's freshest and most ripe. Only then did they make the sangria. A minute later, after he left the bar, a woman who also worked there told us how to make that sangria, and told us with pride that it was easy, as they use frozen fruit. All this for a single $8 glass that was a quarter glass full.
My girlfriend and I had a great time despite the conduct of the staff and the average taste of the wines. They did have an excellent musician playing guitar outside. He was great!

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. My sister, mom and I went to this winery somewhat expecting a typical wine tasting experience, but got much more! Beth Marlowe welcomed us right away so warmly and got us set up right away. She created the most phenomenal atmosphere for my family and I with her kind spirit and just a feeling of being so welcomed. The wine could have been terrible, but we would have never noticed because of Beth's ability to connect!! However, the wine was absolutely AMAZING! Both the whites and reds were equally tantalizing! But, my very favorite was the most unique red wine I have ever tasted. It is called Marechal Foch, and is literally my favorite wine in the entire world!!! Phenomenal!!!! Thank you Banner Elk for the most incredible wine, and thank you Beth for the most incredible experience!!

My sister, mom, and I visited Banner Elk Winery just last week during our vacation. It was one of the highlights of our trip! Beth Marlowe was our event specialist who took the time to make our visit so special and make us feel so welcome. We were very impressed with the quality and unique flavors of each wine tasted. For award-winning wine, the prices were very reasonable! I highly recommend putting this on the top three places to visit when in this area!
