On April 1, 2016, Moët Hennessy unveiled an extraordinary new chapter in India with the launch of its sixth Chandon winery, in Dindori, Nashik.
Chandon’s 21-acre winery boasts a state-of-the-art production facility to create three Chandon cuvées: Chandon Brut, Chandon Rosé and Chandon Délice. The sparkling wine that has been produced here since 2014, is created by a team of international and local winemakers and viticulturists who work closely with grape growers from the Nashik region. The wines are crafted by using the finest local grapes and the centuries-old ‘méthode traditionnelle’ technique to produce these Chandon sparkling wines.
Chandon Brut is straw yellow with flashes of green and a fine persistent effervescence. A bright, fresh fruit bouquet of citrus blossom with green apple and hints of tropical fruits and vanilla. Made with Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes.
The winery is a state of the art greenfield construction located at the foot of the hills on the outskirts of Dindori. The winery has been created to focus on every element of wine production, from the vines in the field to the visitor center. The design strategy was to capitalize on the environment, connect with the local culture, conceal technical production facilities from the visitor area, and draw on the skills of local contractors.
