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 includ­ing 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 and culi­nary gift items. The Win­ery also hosts The Viking Culi­nary Stu­dio which offers week­end cook­ing classes and Sat­ur­day 3 p.m. cook­ing demonstrations.

We are excited to announce a new addi­tion to the expe­ri­ence at the wine bar and tast­ing room. We now offer cheeses from local Geor­gia dairy, Sweet Grass Dairy! Pur­chase a cus­tom pack­aged vari­ety of Sweet Grass Cheese and enjoy it while sip­ping our new fab­u­lous wines.

Con­tin­u­ing with the empha­sis on local we’re also announc­ing the new Olive Oil Tast­ing Bar and Fill­ing Sta­tion fea­tur­ing Georgia’s own award-​winning olive oil from Geor­gia Olive Farms. We will offer two vari­eties from G.O.F. and two vari­eties from Stella Cadente.

Sam­ple each of the oils from the fustis and then take a Chateau Elan branded bot­tle and fill it with your desired oil. The con­cept is to come back and fill your bot­tle over and over again… and have a glass of wine while you’re here of course!

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.
