Banner Elk Winery & Villa is the jewel of the High Country.

Nestled in the awe inspiring majestic Blue Ridge Mountains stands North Carolina High Country's original winery. Come for a tasting and tour, or stay for a week at The Villa, a highly elegant Bed & Breakfast that offers an idyllic setting, luxurious accommodations, and unrivaled service for discerning travelers.

In 2006, the age-old tradition of winemaking made its debut in the region with the establishment of Banner Elk Winery, the first commercial winery built in Avery and Watauga counties. Banner Elk wines pay tribute to the rugged mountain landscape and capture the delicate nuance and subtle flavors of the fruit. Our vintners produce excellent wines that reflect the unique characteristics of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Banner Elk Winery processes our own as well as other locally grown grapes into prize winning wines. 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.

Banner Elk Winery and Villa is the most celebrated winery in North Carolina's High Country. 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. Whether you are interested in a wine tasting or guided tour, learning more about the art and science of winemaking, or just relaxing with a glass of wine, we welcome you to Banner Elk Winery & Villa.

The partners of Banner Elk Winery & Villa are committed to supporting the community in which it is named and dedicated to reflecting the relaxed lifestyle and luxury amenities for which the town of Banner Elk is known. Come discover for yourself how life is simply better here!

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
