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.

We had so much fun at the winery. We did the tasting, it included all 6 wines plus the 2 sangrias! It was great to try them all out. The lady that did our tasting was so knowledgeable about all the wines, she was great! ( I wish i could remember her name). The sangria was so good, my boyfriend... More

Driving up not much to look at..equipment storage right next to tasting room. Pretty porch to sit and sip, not much to look at except a pond in a very artificial setting. Wine was just OK..unless you like NC grapes. If you want a souvenir glass it's pricey at $10 each.
