Inspired by A Vanderbilt House Party, this lavish feast is the kind of dining experience enjoyed by Biltmore houseguests in the early 1900s. Your evening begins with butler-passed canapés, features seven courses and a selection of award-winning Biltmore wines, and takes place in the Winery’s Champagne Cellar. Distinguished by European ambience, refined décor, and the play of candlelight upon rough-hewn stone walls, this distinctive location sets the stage for a truly remarkable evening.


Limited number of tickets available, reservations required.
