Biltmore Wines—Perfect Partners for Every Occasion
You’re on your way to a casual barbecue with friends—what wine will you bring? How about a special gift for the hostess of a formal dinner—how do you decide? With Biltmore Wines, it’s easy! You can visit our Virtual Sommelier or make the most of the following suggestions from our own Biltmore winemakers:
Turn Casual Into Sensational
Whether you’re headed to a picnic, a potluck, or maybe just want to liven up a weekday dinner at home, let our Biltmore Wines take the guesswork out of the equation. If you’re not sure what’s on the menu, our White (“juicy and sweet”), Red (“bold and savory”), and Rosé (“crisp and refreshing”) Century Wines are especially food-friendly. Casual favorites like grilled burgers beg for our soft and elegant Biltmore Merlot while our award-winning Biltmore Sauvignon Blanc is a refreshing complement to chicken and salads.
Formal Shouldn’t Feel Fussy
The invitation may suggest fancy dress, but you can feel as relaxed in your choice of wine as you would in a less formal setting. Consider our Biltmore Reserve Wines—perhaps our Russian River Pinot Noir for richer fare such as pheasant and salmon, or our Napa Valley Chardonnay with lobster. Our Antler Hill collection is especially elegant, and our Antler Hill Syrah is no exception—particularly when paired with dark chocolate.
Everything Sparkles With Sparkling Wines
Sparkling wines are surprisingly versatile and perfect for almost any occasion. A traditional celebratory toast certainly deserves them, but so does fresh fruit, cheesecake, seafood, and much more! Try sipping any of our bubbly and festive sparkling wines, like our Biltmore Estate Blanc de Blancs with sushi or our Biltmore Pas de Deux with a rustic apple tart—and you’ll be amazed at the way your favorite flavors come alive!
The Bottom Line
You can select Biltmore Wines by flavor, occasion, or even the style you prefer, from “smooth and luscious” to “hearty and robust.” Biltmore Wines make it easy—and delicious—to pick a fine wine, every time.Return to Blog
