“They do magic with those grapes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2012

New to wine tasting and having already visited nearly 2 dozen wineries over 10 days, some were forgettable, some absolutely UNforgettable. DC was the latter. We tasted grape-based elixir that had bubbles in hypnotizing proportion, learned facts with which to fascinate the folks back home, and wiled away a rainy, dreary late winter mid-afternoon. When the server learned it was our honeymoon, the pourings were just a bit more generous and we were given our champagne glasses as keepsakes.

“A really nice introduction to sparkling wines”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2012

This was the first winery we stopped at in the area, because it was right down the road from where we were staying (The Cottages of Napa Valley...excellent place, by the way). The tasting at Chandon introduced us to sparkling wines/champagne that we were not familiar with, and we came away with a new appreciation for the bubbly.

“Etoile Restaurant Overpriced, no food on the plate and the server was stuck up”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2011

Terrible and very disappointed. I took my wife to lunch and the cost was $112.00 and here is what we got. 5 scallops and 3 small pieces of carrot on my plate, she got one piece of fish. No salads, or vegetables. We had a taste of wine (36.00) and for her birthday something that came out looking like two pieces of jello on the plate with a candle in the middle. We left and could not believe the ridiculous billing and did I mention Waitress/server Nicole K very stuck up.
Stay away, and also we left and ate at another place for a real meal.

“More than a wine tasting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2011

Domain Chandon is not just a good place to go for a wine tasting, but a relaxing place to visit just for the fun of it. My son and daughter-in-law are members but even so, we could see that the staff were exceptionally welcoming and knowledgeable. A very pleasant way to spend a sunny winter afternoon - and we tasted and bought some very good wines.
