She takes a sip. Their eyes meet, and they share a knowing glance. They married at Biltmore and continue to bookmark those memories with Biltmore wine. Never do they leave the property without at least a case of Biltmore Chardonnay. Steeped in the romance of the turn of the last century, they've made their own Biltmore memories which reemerge with each glass. In a restaurant across the country, a table of six raises their glasses to toast the gathering of good friends and great wine. None of the patrons has been to Biltmore, but they, too, are pas- sionate about this American legend. A server once shared with them the story of Biltmore, and at every gathering, they break bread with the Biltmore Reserve Cabernet. Biltmore, the Asheville, North Carolina property built by the Vanderbilt family, is also a thriving wine estate.
