    A very interesting and mouthwatering place you have presented in this article!

    And from the pictures, it really looks stunning and very therapeutic. This is where one should go to release the stresses of modern life!

    If Bobbie Jo can work at the restaurant for 20 years and still have a lot of enthusiasm, then this must be one special place!

    You mentioned “socially distanced seats”. If you have done a lot of traveling before, do you feel that COVID-19 has significantly impaired the enjoyment of travel, tourism and hospitality, or maybe not?

    Warmest regards.

      Hello! Chateau Elan is indeed a great place to enjoy a relaxing break from stress. 

      COVID has definitely had a major impact on travel — two of the most obvious hits to the travel industry have been the cancellation of large conferences and restrictions on international travelers. Businesses who rely on these travelers have been hit very hard. 

      There does seem to be more interest in travel and vacations that are naturally socially distanced (like hikes in nature, RV rentals, camping, and cabin rentals).

    The Georgia Mountains seems to be a great place to spend quality time during holidays. The view of the Chateau Elan Winery and Resort is just so fascinating and breathtaking. Such luxury in one place. Quality money being spent on quality time indeed. The wine collection is just so awesome, so much to drink, as the pocket or budget would permit. Thanks for opening our eyes to the beauty that lies in the Georgia Mountains, the Chateau Elan Winery and Resort to be specific.

      Hi Kelvin, Even if you just stop in to the winery for a bit, the fantastic wines are a great reason to visit Chateau Elan. We sampled over 10 wines on our recent trip — and we tried less than half of the varieties available!

    As a fan of sight seeing, this was really captivating, it seems like a perfect place to visit with my fiancee, I like their offers. Their ratings are also very high. Went through the reviews and people who have visited really enjoyed their experience, I would like to visit soon too.

    I had just asked you a question on where you recommend to stay in the Georgia Mountains on a another page on your site and so I was delighted to find an immediate answer when I saw this description of the Chateau Elan Winery & Resort. Is this location far from the mazes and Uncle Shucks?  Mind you, I rather fancy we would end ups spending a lot of time sampling and enjoying and relaxing in the winery. What is their most popular vine? I personally prefer Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, do they have red wine vines? It looks like a lovely resort, irrespective of the wines, I`m very tempted.

    Ah, nicely done on all I need to know about this football resort and also about this winery. I think it would be nice for me to go down here to not only enjoy the beautiful wine that they have but also to try to enjoy the great view and also see some nice football too. This is well written and quite explicit too.

    I have not been there YET, but this winery sounds exceptional, and an overnight stay with a romantic partner would be splendid. The pictures show a luxurious experience awaits our arrival. Thanks Alyce for a well-written and very descriptive article that has me wanting to book a stay in the very near future. Definitely something wonderful to look forward to. Cheers!

      Thanks Yvonne! It was very nice to visit the resort with my sweetie and enjoy all the amenities together! I definitely recommend it!! 🙂

    Hello, I have been to some very good and well managed wineries so far. I can boldly say I have tasted some of the best wines in many places. However, there is still a list of places I’ll like to explore and that was what brought me to your page. Chateau Elan is a brand that I have heard a long list of good things about. I was doing more research and it’s great to see all the recent renovations to the vines and the resort. I’m looking forward to visiting and seeing everything in person! Cheers

    Wow! This sounds great. Thank you very much for the article about modern luxury at chateau elan winery and resort. My parents have a grape plantation in the village, so I became a fan of good wine because of them. It is a lucrative business on the one hand and on the other it is a beautiful hobby that allows hedonism for body and soul. The resort looks beautiful and I’m sure it would be great to visit it and spend a vacation there. Can you recommend me some wine you liked the most?

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Jelena, it sounds like you have a lot of great experience with wine! How fun!!

      My favorite wines are the big, bold, red wines like Super Tuscan blends. If you also like these types of wines, I’d recommend that you try my favorite Chateau Elan red wine, the Chateau Elan Mameli 2017.

    This would be a heavenly place to visit. My husband really enjoys his fine wines and i love luxury accommodation and going to the spa. Chateau Elan fits the bill for both. If we are ever in Georgia it would be a great place to spend a relaxing weekend. thank you very much for putting this on the map for me.

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Lisa, Chateau Elan has a very convenient location to both the city of Atlanta and the Georgia mountains. I hope you are able to visit and enjoy a relaxing weekend getaway very soon!

      Chateau Elan does have a lot of different things to offer and makes a great place for a vacation. It’s also nice that the town of Braselton has taken care of it’s historic buildings in the heart of the walkable downtown district. I hope you are able to make it for a visit soon!

    Hello there! Thanks for dropping this article on the modern luxury at chateau elan winery and resort. I’ve gone through the article and I must say it’s really detailed and highly informative. I’m a lover of wine and I’m not sure there’s any wine lover who haven’t heard of chateau elan resort. Though I’ve not been there but I’ve heard stories. This article however gives me deeper insight of the resort. The pictures I’ve seen shows that the place is filled with aesthetics added with the best wines. What’s your best wine?

      Hi Sophie, Chateau Elan is better than ever after the recent renovations. My favorite white wine was the Brut NV and my favorite red was the Mameli. I’m sure you will be able to find something there that you will love.
