This competition is now closed. The winner will be announced on Tuesday 30 January.
Picture this: an idle wander alongside vineyards in Victoria’s Yarra Valley, quietly learning about the process of making sparkling wine and soaking up the scenery. Next stop, a three-course lunch at a prestigious, on-site modern restaurant, all food and drink provided – just you and up to 30 of your closest friends.
That’s the prize we’re giving away in partnership with Chandon. To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Domaine Chandon planting roots in Australia, the sparkling wine specialist with authentic French heritage is offering one reader the chance to celebrate with 30 of their friends their own anniversary – of any kind – as guests of Chandon.
The winner and their party will receive a private tour of the winery with a Chandon ambassador and learn about the méthode traditionnelle it uses to craft its wines. This experience will be accompanied by a glass of Chandon S – a new sparkling wine made with hand-crafted orange bitters, served over ice.
From there you’ll sit-down in the newly refurbished restaurant to a three-course long lunch of seasonal dishes with a French twist, care of Executive Chef Joshua Smyth. Each dish will be matched with sparkling wines by Chandon. And getting home? There will be a return bus transfer for you and all your friends from one central Melbourne location and back again.
It has all the makings of a unique, one-of-a-kind experience. But we know how hard it can be organising a dinner date, let alone a sparkling day-trip for 30 people. So you can choose a date that suits all.
