Banner Elk Winery
Banner Elk Winery • Nestled in the awe-inspiring majestic Blue Ridge Mountains stands the High Country’s original winery. The Banner Elk Winery and Villa is a jewel of the High Country.
Experience our winery and our villa… it’s a magical world. Taste the wine, taste the produce, and taste a bit of luxury. It’s the perfect place to relax, re-inspire, and rejuvenate – both inside and out.
Banner Elk Winery & Villa is the most celebrated winery in North Carolina’s High Country. We continue to lead the region’s commercial wine industry by providing guidance and encouragement to other local farms who are following our lead in planting vineyards with new French-American and American varieties of grapes.
"At the 2011 North Carolina State Fair Wine Competition, Banner Elk Winery brought home the Best of Category-Red Hybrid for our 2010 Marechal Foch and two Double Gold Awards with our 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon and the 2010 Marechal Foch. Our award winning Banner Elk Blueberry and Ice Wines continue to be popular."
Stop in for a tasting year around from noon until 6:00 p.m. every day but Mondays. We offer tours of the vineyard during the winter on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays at 2:30 and 4:30 p.m. The tour begins with the history and philosophy of Banner Elk Winery and follows the route of the wine from grape vine to glass. Once in the tasting room, sample a selection of Banner Elk Wines while you relax by the large stone fireplace.
We are happy to offer private tours and tastings for groups of 10 or more throughout the week, yet we ask that you schedule at least one week in advance by emailing Michelle at email@example.com or calling us at (828) 898-9090
