Fodor's Expert Review Domaine Chandon
This vineyard has one of the most spectacular settings in the Yarra Valley; its Chandon tasting bar has enormous floor-to-ceiling windows providing fantastic views over the vineyards and the Yarra Ranges. Apart from sparkling wines, the winery produces Shiraz, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Rosé. Take a free self-guided tour of the winery's history and production methods from 10:30 to 4:30 daily, or sign up for a A$75 wine discovery class on Sunday with a maximum of 12 people (bookings essential) to get a closer look at wine appreciation. Seasonal platters, tapas, and mains (A$16–A$38) are served in the Greenpoint Brasserie Monday and Friday from noon, and from 11 am on weekends. Each dish has a recommended accompanying wine (from A$10.50 a glass). Selections include a charcuterie board with the 2010 Chandon Les Trois Rosé and sea scallops paired with a Chandon Blanc de Blancs.
