More to Do
Chihuly at Biltmore
Our first art exhibition in Biltmore’s historic gardens is also the first garden exhibition of Dale Chihuly’s works in North Carolina. The renowned American artist’s work is included in more than 200 museum collections worldwide, and now, for a limited time only, can be seen at Biltmore. Dazzling in daylight, the exhibition takes on another dimension when viewed after nightfall. Join us to experience Chihuly’s awe-inspiring marvels of color, form, and light.
Antler Hill Village & Winery
Antler Hill Village is the perfect place to unwind after a busy day on the estate, where you can enjoy live music daily, and opportunities to relax with the refreshment of your choice, whether that’s a glass of fine wine, an ice-cold beer, or an ice cream cone. Browse our shops, share a meal at one of our restaurants, sample award-winning vintages at our Winery’s inviting indoor/outdoor wine bar, or visit our Farmyard to pet the friendly farm babies.
Tours and Outdoor Activities
Engaging tour opportunities include behind-the-scenes tours of Biltmore House and the estate, and special tours and tastings at our Winery. For those interested in exploring more of Biltmore’s 8,000 acres, our Outdoor Adventure Center provides an abundance of outdoor pursuits, from biking, horseback riding, and carriage rides, to Segway tours, Land Rover off-road driving, and our two most recent additions, Falconry and Outrider USA Adventure.
Fall means fresh harvest flavors from Biltmore’s gardens and local farms, ranging from tender lettuces and asparagus to estate-raised lamb and artisan cheeses from area producers. Talented estate chefs take the season’s bounty to devise thoughtful menus that pair perfectly with Biltmore’s handcrafted wines, signature cocktails, and craft beers. Bon appétit!
