Experiencing Biltmore Wines at the Winery

Asheville, NC

A visit to Biltmore Winery isn’t complete without experiencing the award-winning wines hand-crafted on the estate. Admission to America’s most-visited winery is included in estate admission and includes numerous opportunities to relax and sample seasonal wines.
Sample Biltmore Wines
After strolling through the Winery’s historic cellars, guests may enjoy a stop at the Tasting Room. Originally a barn for the estate’s pedigreed Jersey cattle, this room was transformed during a massive two-year renovation in 1985 to create the current Winery.
Today, the spacious room provides a casual atmosphere for sipping Biltmore wines with a Tasting Room host. The complimentary tasting includes a selection of Biltmore white and red wines. Our wine hosts guide guests through the tasting process with simple and easy tips that take away the intimidation factor for those new to wines. For guests who prefer not to sample, non-alcoholic grape juice is also available.
