What to Expect
Prepare to step into a little bit of France - but under the shining Californian sun, of course.
Domaine Chandon is a true fusion of cultures, remaining true to its heritage and offering a memorable experience for visitors. Of course, it is those who are partial to raising a glass of sparkling who will be most besotted with Domaine Chandon - but everyone can appreciate the beauty of its setting and wine.
Architecturally designed to blend in beautifully with the epic natural surroundings, the cellar door at Domaine Chandon is a true gem. Large trees provide an escape from the sun, while moss and hanging flowers adds to the deep romance of the location.
The sprawling estate offers a range of tasting experiences and tours, which suit everyone from the sparkling novice to the full-on enthusiast. These tours range from a simply brilliant tasting of a flight of wines (no reservation required), through to a sit-down guided tasting (bookings required).
Then there’s the sumptuous restaurant and fabulous bar - both the perfect setting for everything from a casual catch-up to a larger celebration.
Domaine Chandon also hosts numerous exciting events throughout the year. From special tastings - such as a cozy fireside tasting experience in the chilly months - to holiday dinners, there’s always something new and exciting happening at the winery.
Afterall, at its core, Domaine Chandon offers the famous joie de vivre - the typically French love of life, all in the Californian sun. From celebrating beautiful sparkling wine to sharing good times with friends and family, Domaine Chandon is all about the great things in life.
Plus, the exceptional quality of the winery’s produce certainly helps add to the joy and appeal. Of course, the sparkling is to die for - with a stunning signature range that showcases the brightness and vibrancy of the winery’s terroir. From complex dry sparkling to sweet treats, the range of sparkling is truly exceptional.
While the focus may be on the bubbly, other varietals aren’t totally forgotten. For the red lovers, there’s some excellent Cabernet and Pinot Noir, while the Chardonnay and Rose also impress.
