Château Élan Winery & Resort in Braselton, Georgia, has been sold to an affiliate of the investment firm Wheelock Street Capital. (It’s true, I double-checked.)
In addition to having new owners, new management teams will operate various aspects of the resort’s operations:
- Luxury management by HEI Hotels & Resorts
- Championship golf and club management by Troon Golf
More than $20 million in new investments will be spent wisely:
Elevate the estate’s 394 exquisite guest rooms, as well as common areas of the resort, including the renowned spa, winery and golf clubhouse.
The renovation will both enhance Château Élan’s signature appearance and service to a new level of luxury and sophistication, while honoring the Braselton icon’s serene spirit and rich history.
“We are very pleased that we are able to pass on the legacy of Chateau Elan Resorts to capable national operators like HEI Hotels & Resorts and Troon Golf, and are confident they will carry on our tradition of the subtle difference of excellence,” said Dr. Don Panoz, founder and previous owner of Château Élan Winery & Resort.
Château Élan Winery & Resort is exquisite — from your first glimpse of the castle to your tearful goodbye.
The resort is more than opulence and indulgence. Château Élan Winery & Resort is the most awarded winery in the Southeast.
Whether you visit the spa alone, enjoy a romantic meal at one of seven restaurants, crown yourself prince of your company in a spacious meeting room, or try for a hole-in-one at one of the championship courses, you will never be disappointed at Château Élan Winery & Resort.
It’s easy to find. Drive to I-85’s Exit 126 near Braselton, Georgia. Then, look for a storybook castle. That will be Château Élan Winery & Resort.
