We recently purchased a bottle of Biltmore Wines Pinot Noir from a local vendor. We decided to pair it tonight with beef. The low acidity of this Pinot Noir complimented our main course and fresh sides. This is a sweeter Pinot Noir and we enjoyed the cherry notes it provided. We will be purchasing this wine again.

Virtual Vineyard Tour
Biltmore Wines‘ roots go back to 1971 when William Cecil, George Vanderbilt’s grandson, began experimenting with winemaking at Biltmore Estate. After some initial failure, William Cecil expanded Biltmore’s vineyards to 150 acres of vinifera grapes, and The Biltmore Estate Wine Company was established in 1983. Since bottling its first wine in 1984, Biltmore Wines has seen much success over the years. Today, Biltmore’s historic winery produces over 150,000 cases of wine a year.
The next time you’re in Asheville, NC, visit Biltmore’s newly renovated winery for a complimentary wine tasting. We’re ready to go back.
