Château Élan Winery & Resort Unveils Marc Bar & Restaurant

USA, Braselton, Georgia. July 01, 2019

As part of its ongoing multi-million dollar renovation, Château Élan Winery & Resort celebrates the opening of Marc Bar & Restaurant, the southern-inspired bar and chophouse, situated within the resort's 16th century-styled château and winery. Designed to complement the resort's vast locale, Marc opens its doors to lush vineyard views and a completely refreshed menu with a special focus on artisanal libations curated by new Winery Chef, Jarad Blanton - who brings more than 20 years of food and beverage experience to Château Élan.

"Known for being one of the most awarded wineries on the east coast, Château Élan has an established history for creating exceptional wine. As we continue to excel in this area, we're pleased to revive the former Marc Bar & Restaurant and invite guests and locals alike to shake things up and go beyond the vine," said Ed Walls, general manager, Château Élan Winery & Resort. "With our modernized design, combined with Chef Blanton's revamped menu and craft beverages, Marc sets the tone for a true destination dining experience."

Marc Bar & Restaurant features a curated list of wine, champagne, beer and an exclusive assortment of inventive cocktails. Featuring fresh sips such as the Bulldog Smash, Marc-hattan, Rhubarb & Strawberry Collins, Summer Cooler, Mexican Martini, St Germaine Sangria and more, those opting for no booze can choose from a selection of hand-crafted mocktails including the Garden Lemonade or Vineyard Refresher.

The cuisine at Marc features hand-selected premium aged steaks and southern-inspired dishes, boasting both small and large plates, as well as desserts, perfect for sharing or savoring alone. Bites include everything from Dry Age Ribeye with Blue Cheese Port Butter and Seared Sea Scallops to Sweet Soy Glazed Mahi Mahi with Avocado Butter, House Made Pappardelle and more.

Conceptualized by the Atlanta-based interior and architectural design firm, BLUR Workshop, the team was tasked to lead the resort's renovation and deliver a distinctly southern design, inspired by the surrounding rolling hills and vineyards. Accessorized with industrial lighting, French oak accents and local artwork, further defining its sense of place, the new rustic ambiance adds a sleek soapstone bar to the back of the existing restaurant, creating a rich yet intimate gathering space. Acting as a decorative entrance, Marc is surrounded by herringbone floors leading into the winery tasting room which added romantic details and enclosed booths, which are almost six feet tall, providing guests with the option to have a more private experience.

Located within the bustling Atlanta metro of Braselton, Château Élan Winery & Resort is a member of the Preferred Hotels & Resorts L.V.X. Collection, which represents renowned properties that feature the finest accommodations coupled with attentive, engaging, and exclusive personal service. The resort offers guests a unique destination experience marked by its unmatched luxury, distinguished offerings and amenities.

Hotel Spa: Back to Nature

As the Wellness Industry continues to expand, hotel spas are also diversifying, placing a greater emphasis on overall well-being. For some spas, this means providing clients with all-inclusive packages that include fitness classes, healthy dining, and offsite leisure activities, in addition to their core services. For example, spas near ski resorts are offering packages that include lift passes, pre-ski yoga sessions, after-ski dinners and spa treatments. Other spas are offering packages that include massages, saunas, mineral baths, hot springs, and recreational hiking and snowmobile activities. These kinds of spa offerings are also part of a "Back to Nature" movement that encourages guests to get out and experience the healing qualities of nature. One such therapy is the Japanese practice known as "forest bathing" which has become popular with spas that are near wooded areas. This practice relies on the ancient power of a forest for promoting a sense of health and well-being. Other spas are incorporating precious metals and stones into their health and beauty treatments - such as silver, gold, pearls and amber. Silver ion baths relax the body and mind, reduce fatigue, and restore energy balance. Gold keeps skin radiant and can even treat various skin diseases and infections, due to its antibacterial qualities. Amber is used to calm the nervous system and to relieve stress. Other natural products and therapies that are increasingly in demand include sound therapy, cryotherapy, infra-red saunas, and even CBD oil, which is being used in massages, facials and foot scrubs, providing a new form of stress relief. The July issue of the Hotel Business Review will document these trends and other new developments, and report on how some hotel spas are integrating them into their operations.
