Chandon in the City

Pop-ups continue to be a favoured way for many brands and venues to introduce themselves to a wider audience. And why, not?  They work.

Tonight, Tuesday 5th April, is the launch of an exclusive Chandon pop-up at one of Melbourne’s most loved rooftop venues, The Emerson Rooftop. Second Helping was invited to preview the offering that will be available throughout April.


The menu of fresh European fare is curated from Domaine Chandon’s Yarra Valley winery restaurant Greenpoint Brasserie, with wine pairings from Chandon’s illustrious list of sparkling and still wines. Yes, not just their well known bubbles on offer for this one. Still varieties will include Domaine Chandon Chardonnay 2014, with premium sparkling options including Chandon Prestige Cuvee 2005 and Chandon Vintage Brut 2012.



The menu has both small and large plates that work well for sharing.
