Chateau Élan takes conference organisers on a journey from grape to glass

October 17, 2014 Meeting Venues No Comments Email Email

It’s not every day you get to create your own wine, but a select group of conference organisers and corporate buyers were given the opportunity to discover their ‘inner sommelier’ recently on a visit to the Hunter Valley’s Château Élan at The Vintage.

Under the guidance of an expert Hunter Valley Winemaker the group – led by Château Élan’s Australian sales representation company Tourism Portfolio – not only created their own unique blend, they also designed the perfect label before enjoying the finished product.

The “From Grape to Glass” experience was just one of the activities the group experienced during a two-day tour of the five-star Château Élan, which sits in the heart of one of Australia’s oldest wine regions and just a 90 minute drive from Sydney.

Also on the menu was a round of golf at ‘The Vintage’, an 18-hole Greg Norman designed championship golf course, along with spa treatments in the luxury resort’s Destination Spa, and a ‘Posh Picnic’ on the property’s beautiful grounds.

Château Élan offers state-of-the-art meetings facilities catering for up to 200 guests, and the property was recently awarded the prestigious title of ‘Conference Hotel of the Year’ at the 2014 Tourism Accommodation Australia (NSW) Awards for Excellence.

In addition to its 17 Spa Treatment Rooms and award-winning golf course, the resort offers a Business Centre, Legends Restaurant and Bar, a heated 25m lap pool, a tennis centre, a 24-hour Fitness Centre, and a variety of bike trails and walking tracks.
