I spent relatively short time in the Biltmore winery. There were guided tours but not at the time I was there. I had no time to wait. So, I took a self-guided visit and observed wimemaking from the observation balcony. I saw modern machines used for winemaking and I observed how bottles are filled and corked.

The production area includes the fermentation room and barrel aging room. I've got to know that
the Biltmore winery produces over 1 mln bottles per year from four types of grapes:
- Cabernet Sauvignon,
- Chardonnay,
- Merlot
- Viognier.
