I love the idea of visiting wineries in the Fall. Although we may not have fall temperatures here in Georgia, October and November is the perfect time of year to visit local wineries. I had an overnight stay at Chateau Elan Winery and Resort in Braselton, Georgia.
Chateau Elan is the ultimate getaway. In my case, it is the ultimate staycation. Chateau Elan offers everything from dining, a beautiful winery, a spa, golf, and many actives to partake in during your stay.
