One of the best tasting rooms in Napa is Domaine Chandon. Their hostesses are the most beautiful, and I have found them to generally be friendly, knowledgable and enthusiastic. They willingly educate you on their sparkling and still wines and are proud of the brand and their personal association with it.

Their hospitality is infectious.

Although we did not have an enjoyable experience at the Etoile restaurant, we absolutely loved the tasting room and shopping experience at Chandon.

The tasting room allows you to order food. We ordered a yummy cheese plate. My friend joined Club Chandon and we tried several different sparkling wines. We met a local resident and chatted with him regarding his favorite bottles from the cellars, and sampled many winery exclusives.

There were many great sparkling wines at the winery. I ended up purchasing the Sparkling Red and the Pinot Noir Rose.

The Sparkling Red is a special wine, one almost never seen in the United States. Its very rare. A combination of Pinot Noir and Zinfandel, that have been fermented with the skins on, the wine is more flavorful because of it.  The Sparkling Red then undergoes a second fermentation in the bottle, giving it the characteristics of a sparkling wine. All of the hostesses told me that they serve the Sparkling Red year-round with dark chocolate or other rich foods (I was thinking mac and cheese) and annually at Thanksgiving dinner!

I decided that I needed another few bottles of it, and checked the Chandon website this morning, but very sadly learned that the vineyard is sold out of the Sparkling Red–I’m glad I purchased my bottle when I did!

Are you a fan of the Chandon Sparkling wines? I’ve got some great news for you, whether you’re a lifelong fan, or someone interested in sampling it for the first time!! Chandon has a very generous email acquisition program.

If you sign up for their newsletter, they’ll give you a 20% discount on your next purchase. Sparkling wine does not go on sale–so this deal can’t be beat!!! I enrolled, and I’m going to redeem my code the moment the winery gets more Sparkling Red in stock!!

If you’re not an email person, you can text, “Bubbles” to 811 811 and enroll in their text messaging notification program. You will receive the discount that way as well!! 

A little discount for my favorite readers!!
