NEW EXHIBITION! Party like a Vanderbilt at Biltmore through …-gloria vanderbilt biltmore pool

Blossoming flowers and colorful stories enrich Biltmore's annual springtime celebration
Biltmore Blooms, Biltmore's annual celebration of spring, has been delighting guests for more than three decades. This
year's event continues through May 23, 2019, combining acres of historic gardens, a new exhibition in Biltmore
House, a spring wine release, and much more.
Spring days are perfect for exploring Biltmore's 8,000 acres in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The Outdoor Adventure
Center serves as headquarters for Segway tours, horseback riding, carriage rides, fly-fishing, biking, kayaking and float
trips along the French Broad River, and the Land Rover Driving Experience. New experiences offered are Falconry
and Outrider USA Adventure electric trikes. Young guests can mix with baby chicks, goats and lambs at the Farmyard
in Antler Hill Village.
Every admission to Biltmore includes a visit to Biltmore Winery and complimentary tastings of award-winning wines.
Look for the 2019 Limited Release Spring Seasonal Wine, a semi-sweet fragrant white wine with floral aromas and
hints of citrus, ideal for sipping, entertaining and relaxing outdoors.
Biltmore's two hotels offer Vanderbilt-inspired hospitality and easy access to the estate's 8,000 acres of beauty during
Biltmore Blooms. The Inn on Biltmore Estate invites guests to enjoy world-class service and luxurious spa treatments.
At Village Hotel on Biltmore Estate, guests are just steps away from the Winery in an ideal home-base for enjoying a
variety of restaurants, shops, and outdoor activities.
NEW EXHIBITION! Party like a Vanderbilt at Biltmore through May 27, 2019
Biltmore house is the scene of a festive celebration hosted by the Vanderbilts in a new exhibition, A Vanderbilt House
Party - The Gilded Age. For many years, Biltmore's curators have researched what it was like when the Vanderbilts
entertained guests at Biltmore House. Using information gleaned from letters, photographs and documents in the
Vanderbilt archives, the curatorial team has created an experience that will put today's visitors into the action of the
time when George and Edith Vanderbilt extended their boundless hospitality to family and friends. The exhibit runs
through May 27, 2019.
Extensive research has gone into creating clothing displayed in this exhibition, drawing upon private photographic
archives and fashion magazines of the era. The elaborate fashions seen throughout Biltmore House in the exhibition
are reproductions by Oscar-winning costume designer John Bright (you've seen his work in "Downton Abbey").
NEW EXHIBITION! Biltmore Gardens Railway May 24 through September 29, 2019
Biltmore's Conservatory will be the site of Biltmore Gardens Railway, a botanical model train display featuring small-
scale replicas of the estate's structures. These will include miniature constructions of Biltmore House, the Lodge Gate,
and even a small version of the Conservatory itself. These handcrafted structures will be created from natural
elements such as leaves, bark and twigs, much of which has been collected from estate grounds. With 800 feet of rails
and trains traversing six separate lines at different eye levels, this is a one-of-a-kind, fun-for-all-ages garden
experience.
NEW VENUE! Meeting and event space: Amherst at Deerpark
Biltmore's newest and largest event setting is Amherst at Biltmore. Located in the most sought-after event area on the
estate, Amherst offers a combination of flexible indoor and outdoor spaces to accommodate meetings and events of all
sizes. This elegant collection of venues can accommodate meetings, weddings and special events of all sizes, from the
grandest of galas to the most intimate gathering.
Enhancements at America's most visited winery
Guests at Biltmore Winery now enjoy new enhancements for complimentary tastings of Biltmore's portfolio of wines
in its renovated tasting room. Biltmore Winery is housed in the estate's historic dairy barn and renovations have kept
the existing architecture of the dairy intact while making modern updates that highlight beautiful features of the
original design. Renovations showcase the woodwork of the exposed rafters and incorporate original building
materials such as stucco. The additional space hosts a new specialty tour, the Winery Production Tour, showcasing
how science and nature meet in winemaking, while educating about the estate's vineyard, the unique factors of grape
growing in North Carolina, and the craft of fermentation. A new Premium Wine Bar is available with outdoor seating.
Two overnight options for extending your visit to Biltmore
Biltmore guests can now choose from two distinctive lodging options to reap exclusive benefits like waking up on
George Vanderbilt's mountain estate. Experience four-star accommodations and dining at The Inn on Biltmore
Estate, or relax with a more casual stay at Biltmore's newest property, Village Hotel on Biltmore Estate, located in
the middle of Antler Hill Village's activities. The Village Hotel is adjacent to Biltmore's popular Winery in Antler Hill
Village, giving guests a convenient home base for exploring the estate's grounds through outdoor activities, shopping,
dining and live music on the Village Green.
Need an expert?
In addition to its reputation as a dynamic travel destination, Biltmore has on-staff experts:
Gardens & Orchids: Biltmore's horticulture team approaches each project with Frederick Law Olmsted's
original intent in mind and sets trends each growing season with projects like vertical gardening, espalier,
tending to the estate's historic rose garden and the International Rose Trials, and nurturing delicate orchids.
Food & Wine: Biltmore's large production garden provides estate chefs with seasonal ingredients served at
the estate's six restaurants. This arrangement is the realization of Vanderbilt's earliest vision that Biltmore
function as a self-sustaining working estate and farm. The agricultural program also includes a free-range beef,
lamb and swine operation, chickens, a vineyard, and America's most visited winery.
Historic Preservation: Biltmore's curatorial team routinely conducts detective work when tackling
restoration projects. Recent projects had them looking underneath door moldings and drapery brackets for
scraps of original wallpaper to determine patterns for the reproduction process.
Christmas: It's never too early to start thinking about Christmas - in fact, it never really goes away for
Biltmore's floral team. Each year, the team creates a Christmas display inspired by the Victorian era designed
to wow the more than 300,000 guests who visit Biltmore every Christmas. Our floral team members are
delightful resources for holiday decorating tips and are adept at scaling down their Biltmore-sized projects
into ideas the typical homeowner can incorporate into their own holiday decorating schemes.
