Enjoy the 'Coolest' Wineries in High Country

One High Country winery is already winning awards and attracting fine wine aficionados. Add the High Country's two new wineries, and you have a Boone Area Wine Trail with three sophisticated viticultural experiences.

Take this spectacular scenic loop of the High Country to visit the Grandfather Vineyard & Winery in Foscoe, the Linville Falls Winery in Linville Falls, and Banner Elk Winery in Banner Elk.
Wine by the River
Meet the vintners, tour the wineries, sample the wines-and take home a souvenir glass and a few bottles or more for later. There's nothing like great wine and memories of the mountains to makea special meal even more so.

Better yet, make Boone Area wineries the focus of a multi-day viticultural visit. Indulge in the Boone Area's world-class cool summer climate and spend a few nights (explore Boone Area lodging). Sample great dining from the Boone Area's long list of gourmet eateries-it's the envy of urban areas far below the Blue Ridge. Along the way, take in some of the High Country's nationally-known attractions or outdoor adventures.
