The winery is in the original dairy barn. Visitors can enjoy a self-guided tour of the estate’s winemaking process as well as some of the dairy’s history by reading the plaques in the lower level passageway. Photographs depict the dairy’s former calf barns, modern milking parlor and adjacent creamery for milk, cream, butter, cottage cheese, and renowned ice cream.

George Vanderbilt’s grandson, William Cecil, planted a few varietals below the estate in the early 1970s. Phillippe Jourdain, a sixth generation winemaster from France, was hired a few years later to expand and enhance production.

Biltmore wines have won more than 1,000 awards and medals in international competitions. By 2001, annual sales reached a million bottles.
