This weekend, I convinced my friends to come with me to try out Chateau Elan! (Just kidding, they were down immediately; no convincing was needed.) I found out about Chateau Elan through a friend of a friend a while ago and it went straight on my bucket list!
I had done some research ahead of time on their Facebook for information and their Instagram for the unspoken dress code, so I had a pretty solid idea of what to expect and I was not disappointed! If you know anything about me, I always check social media before going somewhere. Even just photos can tell us so many things about a place! A website is what the company wants you to see; social media is what other consumers want you to see (with a little guidance from the company, of course).
Chateau Elan is ensuring that all customers leave with newfound knowledge and new experiences, no matter what level of wine connoisseur you may be! We loved it and I would definitely recommend it for a girls day with friends or date night! We did the 8 tastings + the tour for $25 package. Upon arrival, they give you an informational sheet about the different wines they offer and their descriptions, as well as a pen to mark off which ones you tried. The tour lasted about 30 minutes, and I don’t think I’ve ever learned so much in 30 minutes before in my life. I really appreciated how the tour informed guests on the wine-making process, as well as the wine-tasting process for the beginners! The tour guides and bartenders are doing an amazing job of reinforcing the overall brand and its desired experience. We got a quick description of every single pour and you could tell that each one knew their stuff and really wanted you to enjoy the experience. The atmosphere was absolutely beautiful, inside and out. Overall, a great way to spend a Saturday!
