Like Being Inside a Bottle of Sparkling Wine

Posted on 11/29/2017 by Leeann Donnelly

If you're visiting Biltmore during Christmas, you will not want to miss the stunning holiday vision situated high above Biltmore's Winery. 

Inspired by the over-the-top holiday decor in a New York City-based restaurant, 7,000 ornaments ranging from large to gigantic are suspended from the ceiling over the winery's main Tasting Room. 

Michaela Schmidlin, a member of Biltmore's marketing department, lived in New York City for years, and knew of the restaurant's annual eye-catching holiday hall-decking traditions. She proposed a similar – albeit scaled-down – version for Biltmore’s Winery. 

Using monochromatic metallic tones, she and Biltmore’s floral displays manager created a look that mimics the bubbles inside of a champagne bottle, a perfect homage to the winery’s popular selection of sparkling wines.

And now, the globe-shaped ornaments in gold and champagne tones are dazzling our guests as they sample wines in the Tasting Room. When the light hits them just right, the ornaments look almost like they’re as fizzy as the bubbles in Biltmore’s sparkling wine.
