Donald and Nancy Panoz are the visionaries and founders of Château Élan in Braselton, Ga., USA. The luxurious resort is the first winery of its kind in the region since Prohibition. With numerous expansions over the past 14 years, Château Élan is now an award-winning winery and resort with an inn, conference center, four golf courses, eight restaurants, European-style health spa, residential community, wine market, equestrian show center and tennis center. Château Élan is North Atlanta's premier meeting destination that offers championship golf, a full-production winery, European health spa, and world-class amenities.Within the sweeping panorama of the north Georgia foothills, just 40 minutes away from Atlanta, Château Élan began with the planting of vineyards in 1981. From these lush vines of Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet & Riesling grapes has grown a 3,500 acre conference and leisure destination where French provincial and Southern hospitality combine to produce exceptional wines and warm memories.
Mission: For Château Élan to be a part of the world-wide effort in becoming more environmentally efficient and aware by implementing a Green Initiative while maintaining luxury standards and keeping our guest’s comforts our first priority.
