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.
Ready for a Taste?
Drop into our spacious tasting room and let a friendly wine host take you through a complimentary tasting of Biltmore Wines, from floral whites to robust reds. Non–alcoholic grape juice is available, too. See a complete list of Biltmore Wines.
Guests are required to be at least 21 years of age to taste wine. Please be prepared to show your ID. Acceptable forms of identification include:
- Valid driver’s license, not expired, must have a photo. International photo license is valid if it meets all other conditions.
