Visited Winery with several friends on a warm afternoon in February. Comfortable seating both inside and out with a fire pit outside. Large fireplace inside . Tasted several wines and they were all good but settled on the American Blueberry wine, which was outstanding. In fact, it was so good we purchased another couple of bottles to go. This is... More

Gosh, had I only known about this place years before we came up here first! This place is the best of all. Not only does the relaxed and beautiful atmosphere want you to be surrounded by nice people but their wine is just out of this world. I can't get back fast enough to Banner Elk because of the wines.... More

We went here on a cold day in January. It was a very warm and welcoming environment. The tasting had 8 wines and the staff was nice and knowledgeable. They even gave 2 extra wines to taste: a sangria and a mulled wine. Because it was a cold day, the mulled wine was great to take outside. The view is... More

The group of people I was with went skiing. I wasn't participating in that, so I wanted to do something fun by myself. This is local to the ski resorts, and in a nice setting. There was live music which a local singer with great repertoire. The wine tasting is a good deal, $10 per person for a full tasting.... More

I wished we would have showed up earlier as the ambiance is wonderful. The kids sat by the fireplace while we did the wine tasting. Great place to sit back and have a glass of wine or bottle!

You will see from my last review of this winery 2 yrs ago that our experience was quite a 180 this year. Unlike our previous visit, we had excellent service with wonderful wines and unique offerings. Emily, our server for our wine tasting, provided great details about the wines, and when she saw my interest in the salted chocolates they... More

My husband and I traveled up to Banner Elk to visit friends. On the perfect Saturday afternoon, we all piled in and hit up Banner Elk Winery. The day could not have been any more perfect. The atmosphere was amazing! Mountains all around, a pond, natural stone seating around a huge bonfire. I will admit that I'm not a wine... More

I have been to several wineries throughout the United States. This was my second winery in North Carolina and probably the poorest grapes I have ever experienced. Absolutely no flavor, none. Let me try to explain the whites. The first two whites were bland. Meaning the first sip was like flavored water and very dry. Frankly, after the first two... More

My wife and I stopped by on our way to Blowing Rock and had a great time. We are not exactly knowledgeable when it comes to wine but the wine tasting at 10 dollars for 6 wines plus the two excellent sangrias was good value as well as staff being informative and helpful. The setting is really nice with the... More

We stopped by here and sampled a few of the wines. We bought a bottle of the blueberry wine which my husband loved. The interior of the wine tasting area was charming with long tables and a bar, fireplace. The outside had plenty of seating and a small pond to enjoy while sipping your wine.
