Starting my wine tour in Yarra Valley as time is pretty limited, I was highly introduce to visit this 3 wineyard from the 2 ladies at Tourist information center in the City. Of course Domaine Chandon is in my list to visit along with their recommendations is a plus to be top in the list.
How I got to know about this brand is during my first wine tasting about a few months ago before I flow off to Melbourne on mid Aug 2015- Dan Buckle that was hosting the new range of Chandon for the lunch pairing. (click here)
It was a bright sunny winter with temperature at 16 degree which is just perfect for a road trip.
At the entrance driving into the wineyard, is filled with with tress that are bold for winter season where you will reach a huge carpark after minutes driving into the property.
I got excited when walking towards their main entrance as love this classy old English Classic house.
As walking into their show room, you are greeted with all their product labels and history.
and with your self discovery around the area, where it is a open tour, you can walk by yourself as it is filled with all the information you need at each station.
I love this walkway where modern meet classic.
At the far end right after the mini tour, you will reach their shop and also wine tasting session is also available at the bar.
There is a minimal charges for wine tasting and the list is pretty interesting.
For their restaurant, I am definately in for their seating nearby the window that overlook the wineyard.
Sitting outside here with a glass of wine, and overlook the entire wineyard with cool breeze blowing is just relaxing. I do not mind to glue myself in this area for 2-3 hours.
After finishing the whole experience, indeed it will be a great place for pre-wedding shoot or even host a wedding lunch here. Before we head off, we bought a few bottles back which is only available in this wineyard.
Indeed one of a few best wineyard to visit. You can visit their website for more info – Chandon
