Vineyards

Domaine Chandon’s largest vineyard holding is in Carneros, a region now renowned for producing excellent Pinot Noir and Chardonnay because of the cooling influences of the nearby San Pablo Bay. A pioneer in the region, Domaine Chandon has been farming its 800 acres for over 30 years. Domaine Chandon also owns vineyards surrounding the winery on the Yountville property and on the slopes of Mt. Veeder.

The Vineyards

Yountville

Here a slightly warmer climate produces riper Pinot Noir and Chardonnay fruit, which contributes to the richer more robust style of our reserve wines.

Carneros

Napa's cool and breezy district is one of California's finest areas for growing Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, which are integral to sparkling wine.

Mount Veeder

The steep well-drained slopes of this portion of the Mayacamas Range produce small, intensely flavored Chardonnay grapes, which are also essential for making bubbly.

The Grapes

Pinot Noir

The main varietal in Chandon California's sparkling wines, Pinot Noir adds structure, body, and nuances of red fruit, such as cherry and strawberry, to each of the blends.

Chardonnay

This grape variety brings a crisp delicacy to Chandon sparkling wine blends, adding flavors of apple, pear, and peach.

Pinot Meunier

This close relative of Pinot Noir is the most widely grown grape in the French Champagne region. Its flavors are similar to those of Pinot Noir, although slightly earthier, and almost nutty.
