Domaine Chandon is a winery and restaurant located in Napa Valley, California. Established in 1973 by Moët et Chandon,[1] it was the first French-owned sparkling wine producer in Napa Valley. The restaurant was renamed Etoile in 2006.[2] The winery has vineyards located in several Napa Valley appellations including Los Carneros AVA, Mt. Veeder AVA, and Yountville AVA. Domaine Chandon makes both sparkling and still wines made from Chardonnay, Pinot noir, and Pinot Meunier, the traditional grapes used in the production of Champagne.

The company also has sister wineries located in Argentina; Coldstream, Victoria, Australia; and Brazil.[3][4]
