Yarra Valley lunch at Domaine Chandon

Potato and leek tart with Yarra Valley Persian Feta, roasted tomatoes and roquette.

For our annual Christmas lunch, my friend and I went back to Domaine Chandon. We were going to have lunch at another winery then dessert at Chandon but they had a set menu so we decided to have both courses at Chandon.

Melbourne’s weather in the lead up to Summer has been very average to say the least. We were really surprised to have a beautiful, warm day. It was perfect for sitting out in the sun, enjoying the excellent food and wine. We were there for two hours and were never made to feel uncomfortable for being there that long.

Pumpkin salad with pancetta and roquette My friend was really surprised to see such a large piece of butternut pumpkin

The view from where I sat. I couldn’t decide which wine to drink with my meal because there are so many beautiful choices. I decided to try the Blanc de blanc selection and wasn’t disappointed.

Afterwards we decided to take a walk around the property. The original homestead is still standing and is used as the Administration wing of the company. We were a little too late for the guided tour so couldn’t go inside but there is a self-guided tour allowing us to view something of the wine-making.
