Green Point is on a spur of land running from Yeringberg Hill to the Yarra river, in the heart of the Yarra Valley, Victoria. It is the home of Domaine Chandon Australia, where Green Point sparkling and Green Point still wines are produced.

It is named Green Point because in the 1850's the early settlers of the Yarra Valley observed that, each year, as summer advanced and the grass turned straw colour, this property remained green longer than any other. The reason for this is that the ancient alluvial soils at Green Point are deep and therefore retain moisture well into the summer. These soils combined with the Yarra Valley's cool climate, define a site with ideal terroir for growing wine grapes.

Domaine Chandon at Green Point was established in 1986 by Moët et Chandon to produce high quality sparkling and still wines that reflect in their aromas, flavours and structure the Australian terroir in which they are grown.

Offering a fascinating insight into the world of wine production, Domaine Chandon's tour is one of the most outstanding wine-tourism experiences in the world. Guests can see winemaking in progress, visiting the barrel cellar and the riddling hall.

Stunning photography and informative notes – available in English, French, German, Japanese and Cantonese – explain each step in the process.

The tour concludes in the Green Point Room, where guests can enjoy Domaine Chandon's premium sparkling and still wines by the glass.

Free guided tours are conducted three times daily – at 11am, 1pm and 3pm – and run for 30 minutes. Bookings are not required.
