Wine & Food

Discover How Wine is Made

Enjoy a guided visit through the historic Winery in Antler Hill Village. Designed by the architect for Biltmore House, Richard Morris Hunt, the Winery was originally a dairy barn. Notice the unique architecture while you get a bird’s eye view of our working winery and stroll through our cellars at your leisure.

Biltmore Winery
The conversion of the dairy barn into a state-of-the-art winery began in 1983.
