In 1985 the winery on the Biltmore Estate first opened its doors to the public. At the time, William Cecil, grandson of George Vanderbilt, called it, “the most historic event since my grandfather had opened his estate to his family on Christmas Day ninety years earlier.”
Today, The Biltmore Winery is over thirty years old. The winery produces over a million bottles a year and Biltmore wines can be purchased in 21 states. 30+ years later, The Biltmore Winery is renowned for its award-winning wines and is the most visited winery in the country.
Here’s what I discovered while visiting the winery at Biltmore Estate.

Translation- it’s busy.
Though they do a wonderful job of keeping visitors moving through the winery, depending upon the time of day and the time of year, you may have to wait in line for a place in the tasting room.
