Château Élan Winery & Resort has completed its $25 million renovation. As the first major renovation since its inception in the mid 1980s, the full redesign blends contemporary while still honoring the existing estate’s 16th century-style. The transformation includes a complete overhaul of 251 guestrooms 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 spa.
During the nine-month project, Atlanta-based interior and architectural design firm BLUR Workshop was tasked to lead renovate and formulate a design concept representative of the resort’s southern locale inspired by the surrounding rolling hills and vineyards.
The property is accessorized with local artwork and features a modern palette painted in variations of gray and taupe with pops of chartreuse, turquoise and gold, warmed by rich wood accents, white Calcutta marble and industrial touches including tufted leather, wrought iron and carved limestone. The design also includes vineyard-inspired details throughout. For example, a custom 1,400-piece glass chandelier hand-blown in the Crystal Valley of the Czech Republic is shaped to mimic shifting grape vines.
