We found a Groupon for the wine tasting. Had 6 tastes and got the glass. The environment was beautiful and relaxing. The decor was awesome. The staff was friendly - although very busy guy, he still was a great host. The wine was delicious. There were places to sit outside and enjoy a glass of wine. There were yard games... More

Great little winery in a relaxing setting. The staff was outstanding and very knowledgeable of the wines bottled and sold here. The grounds are well maintained and provide a great setting. Want to try some very good local wine in a pleasing and relaxing setting, I would highly recommend!

The tasting was great and the 2 Sangria selections were a nice bonus! The staff was extremely knowledgeable. The grounds were very scenic. It is a little bit off the main highway but on my next trip I will definitely be back.

The winery sits on a few acres of land in the beautiful Town of Banner Elk. We went there with our family which included 4 children under the age of 8. While we sat down and had nice glasses of wine, the children were able to play and run around the grounds without any problem. They were on the grass... More

We enjoyed a fill day in banner elk. One of our many stops was banner elk winery. The staff was very friendly. Liked that they let our dog bingo come in. Just wish they had more sweet wines. The jalapeño sangria was very interesting.

We never go to Banner Elk without going to this place! The entire staff is truly amazing! For the last four years we go on Saturdays to hear Dillon Cable sing. The grounds are great. They have a gorgeous fireplace and comfortable seating inside and out! I can't wait to go back again and try the new wines this Fall.... More

We decided to check this out after having some of their white wine at a friend's house in Banner Elk. It is a truly beautiful place. The staff were all very friendly, helpful and informative. We enjoyed the wines we tasted and they even had a brew to pacify our friend who loves his beer! Of course we went home... More

We have a second home in Banner Elk about 4 miles from the winery. We go over occasionally and do a wine tasting and sit on the front porch. Very relaxing. The staff is very friendly and service is good.

My husband and I were here for the wine tasting. We then bought a bottle to enjoy outside. We were also able to pick blueberries which was fun! We will definitely return! It is a nice place to unwind!
