A pioneer in sparkling wines since 1959, Chandon is unveiling its new Chandon Home this fall in Yountville, in the heart of Napa Valley. The completely reimagined property invites visitors to discover new experiences that extend well beyond enjoying wine.
Arnaud de Saignes, President of Chandon, says: “We are thrilled to invite friends of the brand and newcomers to discover our epic story, groundbreaking winemaking, and warm hospitality, all within a reimagined space that truly embraces the natural beauty of our home. We welcome everyone to explore custom-created sensory experiences that forge meaningful relationships with our guests.”
The first of Chandon’s six wineries to undergo this update, Chandon California has been an iconic site in Napa Valley since its creation. It has undergone an exciting transformation over the past three years, the first renovation since it opened to guests in 1977. The original brutalist architecture style emblematic of 1970s California has been elevated and immersed in a verdant oasis of nature. Gardens and terraces feature lush and succulent native low-water plants among the 100-year-old oak trees that grace the property.
Reimagined with local artisans, the interior and exterior spaces enhance the unique site with an emphasis on natural materials. Guests meander from one discovery to the next – cabanas host festive afternoons with friends around a glass of Chandon Garden Spritz in the Oak Grove, and decks afford stunning views of the sunset on the hills. At the Epicurean Hub, chefs propose local farm-to-table dishes for inspiring wine pairings.
New experiences showcase the history and ethos of the site and the Chandon community, from local crafts to the savoir-faire of the cellar masters and winemakers, all resolutely pursuing a path to regenerative agriculture and responsible, sustainable growth.
Wine lovers are also invited to join Club Chandon, the first community of its kind created in Napa Valley in the 1970s. It now counts 10,000 plus members, who continue the Chandon experience by receiving quarterly shipments of Club exclusive wines to their home, along with limited editions or tableware designed specially for Chandon.
The reopening of the Chandon Home in California kicks off a journey that will stretch across Chandon’s six wineries around the world. As ambassadors of the brand and its exceptional character, Chandon Argentina, California, Brazil, Australia, China and India will from 2024 all propose exciting new multi-sensory experiences around wines…and much more!
