Deluxe Tour
With the Deluxe Tour, the win­ery and tast­ing bar is all yours! Our well trained mem­bers of the win­ery staff guide you through the winery’s vat room where we explain each step in the wine­mak­ing process. Guests get to tour the vat room amongst tow­er­ing stain­less steel tanks and win­ery equip­ment and then on to the cask room where guests are sur­rounded by beau­ti­ful French oak bar­rels where our wines age for sev­eral months or even years. Then, the group con­venes in the tast­ing room where a pri­vate tast­ing bar awaits. Here, guests will taste 5 of Chateau Élan’s award win­ning wines and be led through an infor­ma­tive tast­ing with their guide.

Sweet Grass Dairy’s award win­ning cheeses are a proud tes­ta­ment to Georgia’s cheese emer­gence.
