Château Élan Gains Global Vegan Certification by BeVeg
Georgia’s Award-Winning and Luxury Château Élan Winery and Resort Debuts as the Southern Gem of the Vegan Market and the First Southeastern U.S. Winery to Offer Globally Certified Vegan Wines
Braselton, GA (July 3, 2019) – Château Élan Winery, the East Coast’s most award-winning winery and one of Georgia’s premier meeting destinations, is now a staple in the vegan community having gained global vegan certification by BeVeg International for its line of six muscadine wines. Château Élan joins the prestigious ranks of wineries across the globe who are now appealing to the vegan wine lover by using a plant-based approach in its wine making process. Many wineries filter their wines through animal parts or have ingredients that use animal byproducts. Since alcohol rarely has disclosures on the bottle, the consumer rarely knows exactly what they are consuming. After an extensive review of its production practices and ingredients, Château Élan passed the rigorous BeVeg vegan certification process for its Duncan Creek, Duncan Creek Red, Duncan Creek Rose, Summer Wine, Spring Blossom, and Autumn Blush.
According to Carissa Kranz, founder and CEO of BeVeg International, the company’s certification seal is “a stamp of approval” that tells vegans and others who care about sustainability and social responsibility that a wine label that carries its trademark meets the strictest standards of vegan compliance. BeVeg International is proud to welcome Château Élan Winery on board.
Château Élan’s executive winemaker and operations director, Simone Bergese, proudly notes that has become his “biggest career accomplishment”. In just seven years, Bergese has taken the production from 7,000 cases of only seven wine variation to now producing 35,000 cases of 27 different variations of wines. The winery’s newest goal is transforming its winemaking process to one that promotes healthy and cruelty-free standards. To do so, “Château Élan has eliminated additives and animal derivatives in its winemaking,” says Bergese.
Around the world, conscious companies are starting to embrace these higher standards of production and want independent verification from BeVeg International, a law firm for global vegan certification. BeVeg International certified Château Élan’s production practices as vegan-friendly after reviewing the entire vineyard’s winemaking process. Under Bergese’s leadership, Château Élan has become the most-awarded winery on the East Coast since 2016. From wines made with the muscadine grape to their buttery chardonnay, the wines of Château Élan have won hundreds of national and international awards. Now, its cutting-edge technology and eco-friendly processes has earned Château Élan the new accolade of being the first southeastern U.S. winery to offer globally vegan certified wines.
