Yarra Valley, Australia
Victoria is Australia’s most densely populated state. It features some of the most beautiful scenes, fine wineries, pristine shoreline, and some of Australia’s friendliest critters. Domaine Chandon in the Yarra Valley is a beautiful winery that produces sparking and refreshing wines.
Years ago, Moët and Chandon set out to be Australia’s pioneers of sparking wine. In 1959, Chandon’s founder visited local winemakers in Argentina to learn more about wine making, especially sparking wine. In the 1980s, Domaine Chandon opened its doors in its current location and has grown to become a leader in Australia’s sparking wine market.
A visit to Chandon will provide you with a unique tasting experience. Go down the line and try an array of sparking wines, from Late Disgorged 2006 and Pinot Meunier Rosé, to Chandon Brut and Sparking Pinot Shiraz. If your interested in more, you can take a self-guided tour where you will learn about Moët and Chandon’s vision, history and more.
Chandon also features a lovely restaurant, with wine recommendations for every dish. You can choose from great mains, like wild barramundi or a rack of lamb, or you can order some small plates to share.
