Here at Chateau Elan we LIVE for the holidays and everything that comes with them. Wine Bottle Trees, festive decor, wine, special menus and of course… delicious seasonal cocktails. Master Mixologist, Jimmy, oversees all our bars at Chateau Elan and shared his two favorite holiday cocktails to try this Christmas.

You can try these at home… or if you are visiting head over to our L’Auberge lounge and try them there!

Will you be one of the many enthusiastic fans of college football attending this year’s Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl in Atlanta?

If so, we invite you to take your accommodations to a whole other level with a stay at Chateau Elan Winery & Resort, where we’ll shower you with full-on luxury within easy reach of the Peach Bowl action at the state-of-the-art Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

The Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl

Launched in 1968—when the Louisiana State University Tigers bested the Florida State Seminoles—and sponsored by Chick-fil-A (which is headquartered in the Atlanta metro area), the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl lands this year on Saturday, December 29th.


The Peach Drop gives Atlanta its own nationally known New Year’s Eve tradition, and there’s no more luxurious and well-appointed place to stay for it than Chateau Elan Winery & Resort!

New Year’s Eve in Atlanta

Official details on this year’s Peach Drop haven’t yet been released, but likely will be soon. And the main event is almost self-explanatory: the descent of a massive fiberglass and foam peach—Georgia’s the Peach State, remember?—to mark the stroke of midnight and usher in a freshly minted 2019.


Now that the 2018 harvest has come to an end I wanted to thank you for your support of Chateau Elan and send you a quick recap of the season plus some exciting things to come! The harvest in Georgia started on the 13th of August and ended 18th of September with our estate grapes, reaching a record this year of 118 tons! As always, Muscadine grapes in Georgia never let us down. The 2018 vintage was remarkable for the great yield, flavor profile and overall quality of the fruit.


Procure the perfect centerpiece for your next celebration or a unique gift commemorating a special occasion with a customized wine label from Chateau Elan Winery!
