Biltmore Wines: Your How-to Holiday Gift Guide
Wine makes a great gift, and here’s our how-to holiday guide to make selecting the perfect Biltmore Wines even easier:
Someone who truly enjoys wines will appreciate a thoughtful gift from our family winery. Make it extra special with a membership to our Vanderbilt Wine Club.
Host & Hostess
Many of our bold reds pair perfectly with game dishes and make a welcome gift for those who enjoy the sporting life. The Hunt—our robust, Bordeaux-style red blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot—is a top pick in this category. Hint: Sporty Types may also enjoy a gift membership to the Biltmore Sporting Clays Club.
Holidays inspire romance, and our wines make a perfect gift for happy couples! We suggest our Biltmore Reserve Chardonnay NC, crafted from North Carolina's finest locally grown Chardonnay grapes.
Instead of the usual fruitcake or festive holiday socks, give your Secret Santa a tasteful gift of Biltmore wine. Century Sweet White offers great taste as well as a beautiful gift-worthy bottle!
Pour on the cheer for someone special with a gift of our sparkling wine, handcrafted in the traditional méthode champenoise. Check out our Biltmore Estate Brut; it was just awarded 90 Points + Editor’s Choice by Wine Enthusiast.
All of our sweeter wines make great hostess gifts that pair well with seasonal desserts. Consider our Biltmore Estate Petit Manseng NC. Handcrafted from locally-grown grapes, this outstanding white wine offers tropical aromas, a creamy mouth-feel, and an excellent balance of sweetness to acidity that goes with fruity desserts, pound cake, and pudding.
For the chef or enthusiast on your list, all our wines are crafted with care to be especially food-friendly. Our Biltmore Estate Limited Release Malbec—a rich and fruit-forward red wine with intense spice, blueberry, and plum aromas—is a great choice that earned 91 points from the Beverage Testing Institute.
