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.
