Top 10 Thanksgiving Wines 2011

Chateau Elan Muscadine, one of our Top 10 Thanksgiving Wines 2011


Chateau Elan

Reminiscent of a French country estate, Chateau Elan Winery and Resort, near Atlanta, was founded by pharmaceutical tycoons Donald and Nancy Panoz. On a visit to their research lab in Gainesville, they became fascinated by Georgia's indigenous Muscadine grapes and decided to cultivate their own. Like their fruit-infused Muscadine blends, this pure Muscadine wine is sweet and foxy.
