Biltmore Estate, Asheville, N.C.
The Biltmore Estate is the ultimate getaway — with 8,000 acres, guests can spend hours, or even days, wandering the gardens, exploring the 250-room French chateau and relaxing at the inn. But no tour of George Vanderbilt's grand estate is complete without a trip to the historic Antler Hill Village and Winery. There, you can enjoy a complimentary tasting of more than 45 wines, visit the cellars and dine at the Bistro. And it gets even better: America's largest home offers stunning views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, making it a top vacation spot all year round.
Wine to try: Biltmore Century White — A semisweet blend including Riesling, Gewürztraminer and Muscat Canelli, featuring fragrant aromas of roses and fresh mint.
