Biltmore Winery, North Carolina Celebrates its 30th Anniversary

Biltmore Winery in North Carolina celebrates its 30th anniversary this year. Since first opening its doors on May 11, 1985, Biltmore Winery has ascended to the unique position as America’s most visited winery and is widely regarded as one of the most prominent American wineries east of the Rockies. French winemaker, Bernard Delille, joined the Biltmore team in 1986, bringing his considerable talents to bear on an increasingly diversified winemaking program. Along with Sharon Fenchak assistant winemaker at Biltmore,she and Delille produce a portfolio of more than 40 different wines.  Given the consistently high consumer demand for Biltmore wines, their winemaking efforts have extended beyond North Carolina to include some other pre-eminent American winegrowing regions, notably California’s Sonoma County and Napa Valley. They also produce an everyday collection of wines bearing the American appellation as well as its hallmark sparkling wines from both North Carolina and California. In its first 30 years, Biltmore Winery has grown into its own, now producing 150,000 cases annually. Biltmore wines are now sold on the estate, online, and distributed via retailers regionally. With the volume of visitors of over 1 million yearly engaging, experimenting and tasting wine at this iconic estate, it is hard to ignore Biltmore’s impact on the North Carolina wine industry and the general public’s appreciation of Biltmore wines.
