Biltmore wines make great gifts
The holidays are a wonderful time to celebrate with friends and family and enjoy favorite foods, special desserts, and great memories.
This year, we suggest you make seasonal gift-giving easy with Biltmore Wines. From refreshing blends and food-friendly favorites to elegant sparkling wines, you’re sure to find a perfect pairing for everyone on your list.
A “century” of taste and style
Our Century Wines were developed to honor Biltmore’s centennial celebration. These approachable red and white blends are easy-to-drink and complement a wide variety of dishes, and the beautifully etched bottles make a special keepsake of your Biltmore experience—or provide inspiration for another visit!
Add sparkle to the season
According to winemaker Bernard Delille, “sparkling wines are surprisingly versatile and go very well with many foods.” Don’t just save them for a special toast—make any occasion a celebration when you uncork the Biltmore bubbles! We recommend keeping a few bottles on hand in case unexpected guests drop by during the holidays, or taking our festive sparkling wine with you as a thoughtful hostess gift.
The perfect Christmas present
There’s no better way to commemorate the holidays than with our Biltmore Christmas wine! The unique packaging always captures the magic of Christmas at Biltmore, and the labels are different every year, so it’s an easy-to-give annual gift. We enjoy pairing this slightly sweeter wine with classic seasonal desserts like pumpkin pie and sugar cookies.
An elegant gift
Our newest wine—The Hunt—is inspired by the classic sporting life the Vanderbilts and their guests enjoyed at Biltmore. Aged for about 18 months in French and American oak barrels, this robust, Bordeaux-style red blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot is delicious by the glass and pairs well with many of the rich flavors of the holiday season. The Hunt’s s label—inspired by the strong lines of an extraordinary August Francotte shotgun in Biltmore’s original collection—makes this wine a truly remarkable gift for wine connoisseurs.
