Chandon flies the flag as the only Australian sparkling specialists with genuine French heritage. It all begins decades ago, when Moët & Chandon dared to dream differently, believing that the unknown could deliver brilliant opportunity. Produce superlative sparkling wines outside its hallowed French terroir? Mais bien sûr!
In 1973, the then Moët-Hennessy company founded Domaine Chandon, an outpost winery in the Napa Valley. It was the first French-owned sparkling wine venture in the United States. The fine dining restaurant etoile is situated at the winery.
Domaine Chandon in Australia was established in 1986 at Coldstream, Victoria.
