Happy holidays from the Biltmore Estate! The historic home and winery has released its limited edition 2013 Christmas at Biltmore Wine.
The Christmas season is a festive time for the Biltmore Estate, dating back to Christmas Eve in 1895 when George Washington Vanderbilt first opened the iconic home’s doors. The tradition of releasing a limited edition wine for the holidays began with the 1996 vintage.
The label was designed by artist Perry Winkler of DuBois, Pennsylvania, the winner of Biltmore’s 4th annual Christmas Wine Label Design Contest, as voted by the public.
Floral and citrus aromas introduce delicately sweet flavors of apricot, ripe lemon, lychee, honeysuckle and orange blossom. The finish is smooth with lingering notes of rose petal and white pepper.
The 2013 Christmas at Biltmore Wine is great for holiday celebrations, pairing with a range of foods including turkey, ham, stuffing, sweet potatoes and pumpkin pie.
The contest to design the label for the 2014 Christmas at Biltmore Wine is now open. Original designs, photos or artwork inspired by Christmas at Biltmore may be submitted through January 10, 2014. Click here for full details.
