Grab a glass and head into one of Yarra Valley's biggest wineries for a taste of French vino

The big daddy of bubbles producers in Victoria, Domaine Chandon has been crafting top-shelf sparkling wine since the days it was allowed to be called Champagne. It is owned by giant champagne producer Moët & Chandon (itself owned by LVMH, or Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy). This classic winery combines French tradition with the Yarra Valley cool climate terroir. 

Tastings are $12 for six, and you can choose between still and sparkling. There is also an onsite bar, so once you have tasted your fill it's worth getting a full glass (our favourite is the sparkling pinot shiraz) and enjoying the panoramic views over the vines. As one of the biggest wineries in the Yarra Valley, the venue has an uninterrupted view of row upon row of vines, beautiful at any time of year. 

You can also do a self-guided tour of the winemaking facilities, with schmick interactive displays to teach you about everything from picking to fermenting, riddling to disgorging sparkling wines. You can also see some of the winery's real equipment, including huge tanks and presses.
