When exploring the wineries of Napa Valley, Domaine Chandon is a must-see! You may recognize the name, and may be able to purchase some of their wines at your local store, but there are some wines that are only available at the winery’s Retail Shop. Plus, nothing beats a visit to the source where their incredible sparkling and still wines are created.
Because a wine can only be labeled as “champagne” if it is made in Champagne, France, the delicious bubbly from Domaine Chandon, made using the traditional method used in France, is labeled as sparkling wine. Founded in 1973 by Moet and Chandon, Domaine Chandon was the first French owned sparkling producer in Napa Valley. Along with sparkling wines, you’ll also find still wines created from the types of grapes used to create their sparkling.
Discover more, and taste for yourself, during a tour or a tasting at Domaine Chandon’s beautifully landscaped winery. If you have a group of less than 10 people, you can stop by their tasting room for a flight of sparkling and still wines. You can also purchase wines by the glass, and by the bottle, to enjoy during your visit while relaxing on the Terrace where tables are first-come, first-served. Or you can opt for the Sparkling Tour & Tasting where a Chandon ambassador will take you on a behind-the-scenes tour of the winery that ends with a tasting. Special, private tours and tastings are available by appointment for groups of 10 or more.
