Grape Stomp at Antler Hill Village

Included in admission

Grown-ups and kids alike are invited to take part in this ancient maceration (softening of the grape skin) practice, long an important part of winemaking. All “grape stompers” will receive a special souvenir to commemorate this unique experience.


No reservation required.

Relax and unwind to the rhythm and charm of Antler Hill Village as our accomplished jazz, pop, swing, and rock duos, trios, and bands deliver fantastic 45-minute sets! Grab a sandwich, a cool drink, or an ice cream cone to enjoy against a backdrop of excellent musicianship, dynamic vocals, and the beauty of Biltmore Estate.

Summer at Biltmore offers an abundance of opportunities to explore our 8,000-acre Blue Ridge Mountain backyard and create the kind of memories that last a lifetime. Enjoy a picnic by the lagoon, a relaxing stroll through magnificent gardens bursting with summertime color, and free tastings at our outdoor wine bar. Savings include $10 off per adult admission with seven-day advance purchase, and free admission for kids 16 and under all summer long!

As darkness falls across the Blue Ridge Mountains, Biltmore turns up the volume with Live After Five. Featuring energetic jazz and pop bands and casual dining options offering inspired takes on cookout favorites, it’s the perfect way to unwind after a fun-filled day on the estate.

For a limited time, in our Conservatory and at Antler Hill Village & Winery, enjoy beautifully executed botanical model train displays! These displays feature a variety of Biltmore area structures, each handcrafted in meticulous detail from such all-natural elements as leaves, bark, and twigs. With 800 feet of rails and trains traversing six separate lines at different eye levels, this is a one-of-a-kind, fun-for-all-ages garden experience.
