We had a great time sampling their varied wine selection. Really good job of utilizing the locally grown grapes. We enjoyed the fireplace while drinking a glass of wine. Emily was very knowledgeable with each of the wines.

Beautiful winery in the Blue Ridge mountains of NC. We enjoyed tasting a variety of wines, some distinct blends local to the area. Well worth the trip. There is also a lodge on the grounds which looked inviting, but we did not stay there.

Our end-of-October visit to North Carolina took us to the Banner Elk Winery on a chilly 39 degree day. It's an off-the-beaten-path place, hard to find, and on the small side compared to some of the other wineries we've been to. Pleasant ambience, though it...More
