Chateau Elan’s 26th Annual Vineyard Fest
Established over 25 years ago, the fan-favorite wine and food festival returns this November
Award-winning culinary destination resort and winery Chateau Elan Winery & Resort is celebrating its 26th Annual Vineyard Fest this year on Sunday, November 12. Nestled on 3,500 acres in the rolling foothills of northern Georgia's Braselton, the sell-out event since 1996 is a celebration of the winery’s fruits of labor, offering an extravaganza for food & beverage enthusiasts.
Throughout the afternoon, event-goers will have the opportunity to experience unlimited tastings and bites, lawn games, a one-of-a-kind grape stomping activity, live music, and more unique experiences than ever before!
“Vineyard Fest holds a cherished place in the heart of Chateau Elan, embodying the spirit of celebration, community and exceptional craftmanship that defines our winery and resort,” says Lauren Stephens, marketing manager of Chateau Elan. “As we celebrate Vineyard Fest for the 26th year, we’re thrilled to welcome wine enthusiasts from across the Southeast to partake in this cherished tradition.”
Chateau Elan has a heart for their local North Georgia community as a portion of proceeds from all Vineyard Fest 2023 tickets will benefit the Chateau Elan Military Support Foundation. The 501 (c) non-profit organization assists families of local veterans and active military in need of food, temporary housing, and repairs.
Tickets for the 26th Annual Vineyard Fest start at $145 for General Admission and $250 for VIP Admission. General Admission tickets include event entry from 1 pm to 5 pm, and unlimited 1.5-ounce pours of signature wines, craft beers, and local spirits. Plus, access to culinary demonstrations, bites from restaurant partners, live music, activities, and complimentary gifts. VIP Vineyard Fest tickets include all the items above, early entry at 12 pm, and entrance to the VIP section—separate check-in, soft seating, and a private bar. In addition, a private guided wine-tasting seminar led by Simone Bergese and a complimentary 26th Annual Vineyard Fest t-shirt are included.
