The Domaine Chandon winery was designed with the intention to welcome guests.
Featuring mainly sparkling wines, this winery is a place of celebration and
vibrant living. From the Domaine Chandon tasting room to the Michelin-recognized
étoile restaurant, this visitor’s center delivers the pleasure of wine to all
guests. Of all Napa Valley tasting rooms, the tasting salon at Domaine Chandon
is especially festive. With a history rich in the French tradition of making
Champagne, it should come as no surprise that entertaining and celebrations
are important to the people at Domaine Chandon. This begins in their tasting
room, and they hope, continues at your home. Home-entertaining essentials are
available for purchase at the gift shop, and a membership to one of the two
available wine clubs will ensure you always have a great bottle at hand.
The Domaine Chandon tasting room is focused primarily on sparkling wines. The
same varietals are used in California sparkling wine as are traditionally used
in making French champagne. Guests are sure to experience the regional character
of California wine during a tasting. The Domaine Chandon also offers an interesting
alternative to the traditional tasting room. Book a table at étoile restaurant
and allow the award-winning chef to craft interesting cuisine to enjoy with
your wine. Private dining is also available, so if you’d rather leave behind
the bustle of Napa Valley tasting rooms for an intimate tasting experience,
leave the planning to the experts at the Domaine
There are three options for tasting wines at Domaine Chandon, and no appointments are necessary for any of the possibilities. The Classic Tasting allows visitors to taste four classic sparkling wines, and it's recommended for those who like vibrant and fruit-forward wines. The Varietal Tasting offers the chance to taste still wines from the Chandon vineyards in Carneros and Sonoma, and the Prestige Cuvée Tasting promises a chance to experience the diversity of the winery's sparkling options with tastes of two bubbly wines, as well as one still variety.
