Chateau Elan Sales Kit

  1. 1. W E L C O M E T O A T L A N T A Ê S P R E M I E R C O N F E R E N C E D E S T I N A T I O N Like a mirage rising in the early morning light, Château Élan Winery & Resort lies seemingly suspended in its own world. More than two decades ago we envisioned these rolling hills and vistas of natural beauty in north Georgia as the perfect setting for a 16th century style French chateau framed by lush vineyards heavy with ripening Chardonnay, Riesling, Merlot and Cabernet grapes plus a section of Muscadine’s. Château Élan embraces a French country flair blended with gracious Southern hospitality. And like the loving care devoted to growing our bountiful vineyards, we dedicated ourselves to nurturing our vision, seeing it gloriously thrive and become a 3,500 acre, Four Star, Four Diamond resort and conference destination. There is a subtle difference of excellence that defines Château Élan from other world-class properties. It is our uncompromising high standards of guest services and attention to detail we maintain without exception. It is the splendid choices of amenities that seamlessly blend the fun and enjoyment of a magnificent resort with our acclaimed conference services staff and superb meeting facilities. It is the raison d’étre why we are the national flagship property of Château Élan Resorts. We look forward to the pleasure of your company.
  2. 2. The Inn at Château Élan is designed to provide guests with a timeless feeling of relaxation and well being. Capturing the French country’s architectural flair, the 322 rooms and suites are tastefully furnished in hushed pastel tones and are luxuriously comfortable. The beds are wonderful, the sheets cool to the touch and soft on the skin, key ingredients for a good night’s rest after a full day’s activities. Each guestroom has a large work desk, high-speed wireless internet, mini-bar, terry-cloth robes, and a lavish bathroom with separate shower and garden tub. Château Élan takes pride in its commitment to guest services, personal attention and desire to exceed your highest expectations. It is a unique sense of place staffed with hospitality professionals and associates from all across America and many foreign countries, giving Château Élan a captivating international flavor. The warm and cheerful ambiance that greets you upon arrival and accompanies you throughout your stay, makes Château Élan the perfect venue whether attending for business or pleasure.

Memorable views of undulating fairways, cool lakes, tree lined holes, and putting surfaces of tightly woven carpets of greenery punctuated with clever sand traps will delight players of every caliber. A beautiful 1,100 yard, nine hole Par Three Executive Walking Course is an ideal venue for players who do not have time for a full 18 or for group “night golf” outings.

Golf amenities include two clubhouses, two professional golf shops, two restaurants and a climate-controlled events pavilion. All lend themselves to award presentations, cocktail parties or banquets.

  20. 20. WINERY The Winery, located inside a magnificent Château, is designed in the style of a 16th century French royal retreat. Framed by 200 acres of vineyards, the Winery produces more than 20 different vintages, which have been awarded more than 275 national and international awards. Inside the Château are two restaurants, conference facilities, an art gallery, wine market, gift shop, cask room and in the expansive cellars, a full-production winery, the largest producer of premium and varietal wines in Georgia. WINEMAKING At Château Élan, winemaking is art and science, tradition and modern technology. Our winemakers have come from generations of French, German, American, and now Austrailian wine philosophies, blending the best of the old ways with the best of the new. The grapes are picked by hand to ensure that only the finest fruit is chosen. White grapes are pressed as a whole cluster. The juice is then fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. Red grapes are de- stemmed and crushed. The skins, pulp and juice are then fermented in stainless steel tanks. Pressing of the red wine occurs after fermentation. Wines are aged in a variety of French and American oak barrels. The Château also houses the bottling, labeling and distribution of the wines. VINEYARDS The vineyards are planted with Vitis Vinifera varieties, French-American hybrids, and native Southern American grapes. The grape varieties include Chardonnay, Riesling, Cabernet, Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Chambourcin Seyval Blanc, and Muscadine. Due to the humid climate in Georgia, Château Élan devel- oped innovative methods for premium grape growing, such as keeping the vines high off the ground and further apart allowing for better ventilation. This attention to detail has literally born fruit. The harvest is more abundant each year. WINE MARKET Open Monday through Saturday 10 a.m. – 9 p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m. – 8 p.m., the Wine Market sells Château Élan wines along with a unique blend of mer- chandise including: wine related items, tableware, gift & decorative items, gourmet foods, children’s items, clothing, and seasonal items.
