The Win­ery & Events

The Win­ery was opened in 1984 by Don and Nancy Panoz and cur­rently sits among acres of vine­yards. The Win­ery also hosts two din­ing estab­lish­ments: the ele­gant French Le Clos restau­rant and the relaxed Mediter­ranean style bistro, Café Élan. Upon enter­ing the Win­ery you will first dis­cover the Wine Mar­ket, which fea­tures Château Élan wines along with a wide vari­ety of wine-​related and culi­nary gift items. The Win­ery also hosts The Viking Culi­nary Stu­dio, which offers week­end cook­ing classes and Sat­ur­day 3 p.m. cook­ing demonstrations.

All Wine Tours & Tast­ings begin in the Wine Mar­ket. You may also have a Cus­tom Wine Label cre­ated to com­mem­o­rate your visit. The Art Gallery is also located in the Win­ery on the 2nd floor.

The Win­ery will be closed to the pub­lic and no tours will be avail­able on Novem­ber 8th as we are host­ing our annual Vine­yard Fes­ti­val. Only ticket hold­ers permitted.

Be sure to view our lat­est round of awards from recent national competitions!

Taste of Georgia

Taste of Geor­gia is a wine edu­ca­tion event that focuses on wine pair­ings with sam­plings of a high­lighted food crafter for the evening. Geor­gia is full of culi­nary artistry and we like to join forces with one or more at each Taste of Geor­gia event to high­light Chateau Élan wines, Georgia’s best food arti­sans, and the art of pair­ing wine with food…

Dining Under the Stars

Din­ing Under the Stars

Be part of an unfor­get­table evening din­ing al fresco under the stars in the Chateau Elan Vine­yards on select Sat­ur­day nights. Allow your taste buds to tran­scend in time with a cel­e­bra­tion of regional and inter­na­tional fla­vors pre­sented by our Chefs and Wine­maker Simone Bergese. The evening kicks off with cock­tails fol­lowed by a multi-​course din­ner paired with select wines.
