This winery is one of our favorites that we love to recommend to first time Napa visitors or anyone who has never been to this fantastic dreamland of bubbles. Once you arrive and pass through the gift shop, you’ll hit the tasting room where you can enjoy a flight. If you’re looking for a more prolonged visit, after the flight, you can pick up a bottle of your favorite sparkling and enjoy it outside on their patio (also a great option if you don’t want to do a full tasting!). It’s a beautiful, green outdoor space that reminds you why you’re so lucky to be spending time in wine country.
Domaine Chandon is the first place we’ve ever come across a sparkling red - not a sparkling rose, but a deep sparkling red wine, and yes, it is as magnificent as it sounds. The lush outdoor area surrounding the tasting room is a perfect backdrop for popping a bottle of this bubbly. The tasting bar is relatively busy at all times, so finding space at the counter can be difficult for larger parties. We were able to squeeze a party of four in after a few minutes of hovering and were accommodated by informative, generous pourers. Each trip here surpasses the last. Enjoy!
