Free with online admission purchase, our Exhibition Audio Guided Tour combines 360° sound techniques with behind-the-scenes stories that allow you to imagine you are there as guests and staff prepare for a gala celebration.
Antler Hill Village & Winery
Charming Antler Hill Village, where you can enjoy live music daily, is the perfect place to relax and unwind after a busy day on the estate. Sample award-winning wines and delectable cheeses, chocolates, and charcuterie at the Winery’s beautifully appointed wine bar. Visit the Farmyard to pet the friendly farm animals, browse our unique collection of shops, then cap off your time with us by enjoying fresh farm-to-table fare at one of our restaurants.
Tours and Outdoor Activities
Engaging tour opportunities include behind-the-scenes explorations of Biltmore House and the estate, and special tours and tastings at our Winery. For those interested in immersing themselves in Biltmore’s 8,000 acres, our Outdoor Adventure Center provides an abundance of ways to enjoy estate grounds. From biking, horseback riding, and carriage rides to sporting clays, falconry, and fly fishing, from Land Rover Experiences to Outrider USA Adventure tours, there's something for everyone!
Dining on the Estate
Dine with us this spring to delight in fresh seasonal flavors from Biltmore’s gardens and local farms! Farm-fresh ingredients range from tender lettuces and asparagus to estate-raised lamb and beef and artisan cheeses from area producers. Inspired by this seasonal bounty, talented estate chefs devise menus thoughtfully designed to please a variety of palates while pairing perfectly with Biltmore’s handcrafted wines, signature cocktails, and craft beers.
