Banner Elk Winery Marechal Foch NV

Member Review by vin0vin0:

Interesting red wine from Yadkin North Carolina. This NC version of the French Marechal Foch grape has a leafy/vegetal nose and a flavor profile similar to a ligther sangiovese with nice red and black cherry and a touch of rhubard. Nice acidity and soft tannins.

Banner Elk Winery marks the genesis of the wine tradition in the High Country of North Carolina as the first commercial winery built in Avery and Watauga counties. In July 2006, the age-old winemaking tradition officially made its debut in a corner of the New World previously overlooked for the craft. The creations of Vintner Dr. Richard Wolfe pay tribute to the rugged mountain landscape and capture the delicate nuance and character of the fruit. Processing locally grown grapes into excellent wines that reflect the unique characteristics of the Appalachian Mountains, Dr. Wolfe provides guidance and encouragement to local farmers planting vineyards with the new French-American and American varieties of grapes. This fruit is hearty enough to survive the harsh winters of the High Country. Located just north of Banner Elk, the winery is situated on a 25-year old blueberry farm. Dr. Wolfe uses the local blueberries to create his award winning Blueberry Wine. Banner Elk Winery also produces Seyval Blanc, Chardonnay, Banner Elk White, Nouveau Francesco, Banner Elk Red, and a Cabernet Sauvignon, which won the Double Gold Medal last fall at the North Carolina State Fair. Operating in tandem with the winery, just across the lawn, Dr. Wolfe and his wife, Dede Walton, host guests at the Villa at the Blueberry Farm, an eight-bedroom luxury bed and breakfast. The villa overlooks the winery and surrounding fields of fruit. The suites are all named after wines, which perfectly express the flavor of this opulent retreat. Read less
