Estd 1895. An American legacy and tradition. Wine became a family tradition when our great-grandfather George Vanderbilt entertained his first guests at Biltmore in 1895. Today, the legacy of our past inspires our future as we handcraft quality wines from America's finest grapes at our estate winery. Sangiovese, Merlot, and Zinfandel come together to create a medium-bodied, fruit-forward wine with richly layered aromas and a lingering finish.
