About Us

Erick’s Cheese & Wine Shop has been a favorite stop in Banner Elk for over 37 years.

From the distinctive, collectible wines you'll find in Erick's temperature controlled fine wine room, to highly rated wines for under $10 a bottle, and everything in between - Erick's inventory is hand picked for your enjoyment. If you don't see what your looking for, Erick's will special order. We offer discounts on quantity purchases, too.

Erick's cheese selection is an outstanding collection of over 100 imported and domestic cheeses. It includes many artisan and farmstead cheese. We custom cut the cheese from wheels or blocks so you can get any quantity you need. And, you can taste before you buy!

Whether you're planning an intimate evening with your friends, a special party, need the perfect gift, or want help in making selections for your wine cellar that you'll enjoy for years to come - Erick's is the place!

Retail wine, cheese, gourmet foods, gift baskets & party trays. Free wine tasting parties every Saturday.
