Antler Hill Village & Winery
Antler Hill Village® is the perfect place to unwind after a busy day on the estate, where you can enjoy live music daily, and opportunities to relax with the refreshment of your choice, whether that’s a glass of wine, an ice-cold beer, or an ice cream cone. Browse our shops, enjoy a meal at one of our restaurants, sample award-winning vintages at our Winery’s newly renovated indoor/outdoor wine bar, or pay a visit to our Farmyard to pet the friendly farm babies.
Tours and Outdoor Activities
Engaging tour opportunities include behind-the-scenes tours of Biltmore House and the estate, and special tours and tastings at our Winery. For those interested in exploring more of Biltmore’s 8,000 acres, our Outdoor Adventure Center provides an abundance of outdoor pursuits, from biking, horseback riding, and carriage rides, to Segway tours and Land Rover off-road driving, and such river-based options as float trips, kayaking, and stand up paddle boarding.
Fall means fresh flavors from Biltmore’s gardens and local farms, ranging from tender lettuces and asparagus to estate-raised lamb and artisan cheeses from area producers. Talented estate chefs take the season’s bounty to devise thoughtful menus that pair perfectly with Biltmore’s handcrafted wines, signature cocktails, and craft beers. Taste of Biltmore adds expanded offerings for lunch and dinner across the estate.
