In the holiday spirit, George Vanderbilt’s famous Biltmore estate is decked out in stunning holiday decorations, including lights, ornaments, and beautiful trees that light up its grand rooms.
You can get reserved tickets for holiday tours at the estate, which includes a daytime visit with an audio tour guide, access to the estate gardens, and a free wine tasting at the Antler Hill Village and Winery. As the largest privately owned home in America, the Biltmore estate offers a glimpse into the American Gilded Age and produces award-winning North Carolina wines from its vineyard.
Sharon Fenchak, the estate’s winemaker, oversees the production of a variety of wines, including reds, whites, rosés, and sparkling Brut. With her extensive background in food science and winemaking, Fenchak focuses on creating wines that reflect the finest traditions of the Biltmore estate and the state of North Carolina.
The estate’s wine selection includes a Biltmore Estate Brut, a delightful sparkling wine perfect for holiday toasts, a Biltmore Chardonnay, great for pairing with holiday meals, and a crisp Biltmore Estate Sauvignon Blanc. Additionally, you can enjoy a Dry Rosé and a Pinot Noir, both fantastic choices for enhancing holiday feasts.
If you can’t visit the estate in person, you can still bring the Biltmore Christmas spirit home by purchasing estate wines and other holiday gifts online. Additionally, fans of the estate can look forward to the debut of “A Biltmore Christmas,” a movie filmed on location at the estate and set to premiere this holiday season on the Hallmark Channel.
