More to Do
Chihuly at Biltmore
Our first art exhibition in Biltmore’s historic gardens is also the first garden exhibition of Dale Chihuly’s works in North Carolina. The renowned American artist’s work is included in more than 200 museum collections worldwide, and now, for a limited time only, can be seen at Biltmore. Dazzling in daylight, the exhibition takes on another dimension when viewed after nightfall. Join us to experience Chihuly’s awe-inspiring marvels of color, form, and light.
Antler Hill Village & Winery
Charming Antler Hill Village is the perfect place to relax and unwind after a busy day on the estate. Sample award-winning wines and delectable cheeses, chocolates, and charcuterie at the Winery’s beautifully appointed wine bar. Visit the Farmyard to pet the friendly farm animals, browse our unique collection of shops, then cap off your time with us by enjoying fresh farm-to-table fare at one of our restaurants.
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 sporting clays, Segway tours, and Land Rover off-road driving, including the New Land Rover Heritage Experience.
Dine with us this spring to delight in fresh seasonal flavors from Biltmore’s gardens and local farms! Farm-fresh ingredients range from tender lettuces and asparagus to estate-raised lamb and beef and artisan cheeses from area producers. Inspired by this seasonal bounty, talented estate chefs devise menus thoughtfully designed to please a variety of palates while pairing perfectly with Biltmore’s handcrafted wines, signature cocktails, and craft beers.
