Ultimate Winery Experiences welcomes Chandon.

21 April 2024


In Victoria’s Yarra Valley, Chandon now glistens as the latest addition to the prestigious ranks of Ultimate Winery Experiences Australia (UWEA). With its doors open since 1986, Chandon stands as a bastion of sparkling wine excellence, nestled amid the serene, rolling vistas just an hour from Melbourne’s vibrant heart.

As a sparkling Maison under the distinguished banner of Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton (LVMH), founded by the visionary Robert-Jean de Vogüé in 1959, Chandon embraces a legacy of redefining sparkling wine production.

This Australian chapter of Chandon’s global journey, rooted deeply in the rich Yarra Valley terroir, offers one of the country’s most expansive arrays of méthode traditionnelle wines. Visitors to Chandon are invited to delve into the winemaking process through the Sparkling Brunch and Behind the Bubbles experience.

This exquisite journey commences with a brunch finely paired with Chandon’s sparkling wines, featuring delicacies such as smoked salmon and prosciutto, followed by an interactive blending session in the majestic Riddling Hall. It’s a hands-on approach to understanding the meticulous craft behind each bubble.


For those desiring a leisurely gastronomic indulgence, the Indulge with Étoile experience presents a seven-course culinary adventure, each dish harmoniously paired with Chandon’s exclusive Étoile blend.

This sensory exploration celebrates both local produce and the nuanced mastery of Chandon’s sparkling craft.

Sarah Myers, Executive Officer of UWEA, warmly welcomes Chandon to the collective. “Chandon’s induction enriches our vibrant tapestry of wineries with its esteemed global presence and profound expertise in sparkling wine craftsmanship,” she remarks.

“Their joining is a boon to our collective, enhancing our offerings in the Yarra Valley alongside celebrated members like Dominique Portet and De Bortoli.”

Mat Janes, Consumer Business Director at Chandon, expresses enthusiasm about joining such a revered collective. “It’s an honour to stand among wineries that epitomize excellence and authenticity.

“At Chandon, we’re eager to showcase our dedication to sparkling winemaking to both the international community and local wine enthusiasts,” he states.

Chandon promises not just a taste but an immersion into the elegance of Australian winemaking, inviting one and all to experience the vibrancy of the Yarra Valley at their home on Maroondah Highway, Coldstream, open daily for visits.
