#1 of 3,136 in Wineries in United States
The main house on Biltmore contains more than 250 rooms, making it the largest privately owned home in the world. A short drive from the city, the sprawling estate includes landscaped gardens, stables, expansive hiking trails, and an award-winning winery. Go on a guided tour of the Renaissance-inspired house to learn about the Vanderbilt family, who built this large family home between 1889 and 1895. You may prefer a coach tour of the 3,237 hectare (8,000 acre) estate, where you'll learn how this land was developed and visit areas generally not open to regular guests.

  • One of my favorite places to be a tourist. The house is fascinating and beyond beautiful. To be honest, I really loved the multiple gardens and conservatory the most. Just touring the home and gardens can easily take half a day. The staff were so friendly, and on a hot day too. That takes dedication. We are going back to see it decorated for Christmas.
  • Wow such an incredible place. I didn't realize that it would be so magical and pristine until I arrived. Being the largest house in the country 100 years ago, and still holding that title today speaks volumes. The care, passion, authenticity that was put into creating this beautiful castle was so rewarding to look at. The best part is, after the museum and the Gardens, you can travel to the Winery and Village. Here they have great food, that is fresh and vibrant. The winery offers taste testing on their home grown wines, which you can then purchase on site. Great experience and everlasting memories
