I already talked about the unbelievable amenities that Mr. Vanderbilt built in his castle for his friends and family to enjoy. They include a 70,000-gallon indoor pool, a bowling alley, a gymnasium, kitchen pantries, walk-in refrigerators, an elevator; well, too many amenities to mention, especially, when we are talking about a home built in 1895 that took six years of construction.
Years later, in 1985, the Biltmore Winery opened up. In 1979, his grandson, William A.V. Cecil, following his grandfather passion for fine wines, contracted a sixth generation French winemaster, Mr. Phillipe Jourdain to help him bring to life his vision of a fine winery in Ashville, NC. Their partnership was so successful that the winery continues to be one of the top wineries today.
I had an amazing day touring the facility and the winery. Travel with me through my slide show.
