That was the best wine tasting I've been to before. I like the young guy who was just learning but he did excellent job. The place was cozy and nicely decorated and the fireplace made you feel comfortable. Kids had a fun by making s'mores outside at the campfire. I liked the sweet and spicy sangria which one of the staff made. Definitely will come back next time visiting Boone.

We visited the winery on December 15 and departed on the 16th (really wish we could've stayed another night). I had been talking and booking everything for our elopement pkg with Terri, who is very sweet btw, and the outcome was great. We got married in the winery in front of the fireplace while the wind was howling outside with just us and our children. The Christmas tree made for a good backdrop. Only downsides - The officiant they used had trouble getting my email right so I didn't see any vow options until the day of the wedding I believe, and the photographer said it would take 4-6 weeks from the wedding day to see our pictures. I thought that was a bit long, but we are anxiously waiting. The breakfast on the day we left was good. There were plenty of extra towels in the hall armoire (we were in one of the fireplace suites for showering and everyone was nice overall. Terri's pup made my day with the begging for food bit......So naughty, and I loved it. Would def visit again.

There is a huge fireplace inside and ample comfortable meeting around tables or in front of the fireplace. They let you taste wine from wherever you are seated, and you can bring your own food to eat as you taste wine and homemade sangria. We thoroughly enjoyed our tasting and bought wine to take home to family.

We went there to buy a bottle of wine, but decided to stay for the wine tasting. The wine tasting was fun and we tasted a variety of their wines. The property itself was spacious and relaxing. We would definitely go back.

While at local restaurant, Sorrentos Bistro, we spoke with Geri. She shared family history of the restaurant and Banner Elk Winery, which she encouraged us to visit.
The site is a beauty nestled in a mountain valley with rolling hills, rocks and pond. Staff were friendly, informative and fun. We later enjoyed some of our wine purchases, chatted with customers lounging around and listened to live music.

Stayed on site at the Villas. Lovely property with amazing views. Concierge was warm and welcoming.
