“Enjoyable tour, fun tasting, great views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013

Do try to get on one of the free tours, you learn a lot more than just wandering around. Of course the person running the tour really uses the time to get you excited about a tastings, which will of course cost some cash, but they are fun to do and can be done in quiet parts of the bar away from the coach tours.

The view across the valley to the mountains from the bar is wonderful.

“Taste beautiful wine in beautiful surroundings.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

A lovely winery, leaning slightly to the commercial side. As well as the tasting area there a bar and brasserie with some outdoor seating with lovely views. We didn't try the brasserie but had a look at the very modern sounding menu and with mains over $30 thought it a little on the pricey side.

Very reasonable priced tasting at $5 however and this is deducted from any purchases you might make. The young staff are pleasant and happy to help, we were there on a Saturday and the tasting bar was a little crowded. We followed up our purchases with a glass of bubbles from the bar and sat outside looking out over vines, which was a beautiful way to finish the day.

“Beautiful Winery and Wines, Great Staff, Fabulous Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2013

My Mum and I dropped in here as part of a short break in the Yarra Valley. The opportunity to taste wines that have limited release, assisted by Heather who had excellent wine knowledge, was warm and helpful was most appreciated. Enjoyed both the sparking wines and the still. Didn't try the brasserie as planned to picnic later, but it looked clean, modern and well presented. The 'club' that you can join to receive wines is also well priced and not over the top and will certainly join to take advantage of unusual/new wines. Also appreciated the opportunity to attend a wine lunch in the future. Clean, modern, tasty experience, thanks very much Heather!

“One of the best and most accessible Wine Valleys in the World”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

How about getting on a commuter train and ending up in a Top-Of-The-World wine valley? Or renting a car to get to Yarra Valley in a flash? Extraordinary Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays. One of the finest places to visit is Chandon. They make better sparkling wines there than in any of their other facilities in the world, with maybe the exception of their Argentina winery. Sit on the terrace for a pleasant view of the vineyards with a flight of their sparkling offerings and truly enjoy the day. Great looking food is also available if you need to feed. But, go for the wine!

“Good Wine plus Good Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

It's a lovely wineries and beautiful surrounding. We missed the wine tour but we did the wine tasting. The staffs are really professional and good in recommending the wines. The downside is, we can't resist the good wine after the wine tasting and ended up buying a few bottles home :P

We were not in time to taste their food as it's near to the restaurant closing time, therefore, we came back the next day just for the lunch because it's highly recommended by one of our friend. The view of the restaurant overlooking the wineries, makes it so beautiful and leaving an enjoyable dining experience. The food was good despite the price is a bit on the high side. I would say it really worth a try! Get a bottle of good wine from the cellar and pair it with their food, enjoy the whole beautiful, relaxing afternoon.

It's really worth a visit, but to avoid huge crowd, go to do the wine tasting earlier of the day before the crowd started to build up. Highly recommend to try their food and if I am not mistaken, the restaurant closes at 4pm, so would recommend you to go in earlier so you have ample time to enjoy the lovely meal.
