Renderings, Details Unveiled For $25MM Château Élan Winery Overhaul

Transformation will include reno of 251 guest rooms, 24 suites, four new food and beverage outlets, and more.

Château Élan Winery & Resort is moving forward with plans to undergo a renovation to the tune of $25 million.

The plans were first announced in 2018 after the château and full-service winery was acquired by Wheelock Street Capital.

Construction is underway and the overhaul is expected to be completed in November 2019.

The complete transformation introduces a modernized design while "honoring the existing estate’s 16th century-style charm."

Château Élan's renovation will include a complete overhaul of 251 guest rooms and 24 suites, four new food and beverage outlets, the winery, as well as the resort lobby, with a facelift to the existing pool terrace and immersive spa.

“Embarking on a renovation of this magnitude for a resort destination with such a well-respected reputation requires a committed responsibility to honor the property’s legacy, while still delivering upon the modernized expectation to mirror our ever-growing wine, epicurean and experiential programs,” Ed Walls, general manager, Château Élan, said in a press release this week.

“Every single detail was hand-selected with great intention and we cannot wait to introduce the new generation to our beloved Chateau Élan.”

The renovation of Château Élan follows the recent purchase of the property by an affiliate of the Connecticut based real estate investment firm, Wheelock Street Capital, in January 2018.

“Since joining the Château Élan family, we have looked forward to this much-anticipated transformation,” Keith Manning, vice president of asset management, Wheelock Street Capital, said in the release.

“Creating a cohesive, refreshed and timeless design, was the natural next step to set the tone for our guests and elevate the overall resort experience.”

Located in Braselton, at 100 Rue Charlemagne Drive, Château Élan offers 40,000-square-feet of meeting space, a 35,000-square-foot European spa, 45 holes of championship golf and a newly renovated golf clubhouse and tennis center.
