This December, destination sparkling winery CHANDON will launch ‘Garden Spritz Summer Sessions’, a weekend outdoor activation at its beautiful Yarra Valley estate to kickstart summer in style. Get ready for the ultimate immersive experience with live music, pop-up entertainment, delicious food and of course, the new CHANDON Garden Spritz.


Inspired by that ‘first sip of summer’ feeling, Garden Spritz is CHANDON’s first foray into the spritz world. Garden Spritz is made by blending CHANDON’s exceptional sparkling wine with locally sourced naval and blood oranges and a unique bitters recipe. The delicious, zesty, and refreshing drink perfectly captures summer in a bottle and is best served over ice with your favourite garnish.

To celebrate its launch into the Australian market, the winery is transforming its outdoor terrace bar and lawn into a luxury Garden Spritz-themed setting throughout summer.


Alongside sustainable events agency Frank Wild, CHANDON has decked out the space with orange trees, bar carts and a curated selection of lawn games among an array of outdoor seating options for guests to kick back, relax and enjoy what’s best about Summer Sessions with friends once again.


Wax’o Paradiso will be setting the scene for the first weekend of summer, the official launch weekend of Summer Sessions, and local Melbourne-based talent agency, WAT Artists, will continue to turn up the tracks as they showcase the best of their Melbourne roster over select weekends in December and every Saturday in January.

CHANDON has also designed an impressive range of easy-to-share food and beverage offerings, with a combination of both bookable and walk-in experiences available, each of which will hero the new Garden Spritz, alongside a complementing fresh summer menu. The options include:

  • Spritz & Snack ($14.50) – a glass of Garden Spritz and accompanying salty snack (house-made vegie chips or olives)
  • Garden Spritz Picnic Packs ($110) – also designed for two, you’ll score a bottle of Garden Spritz alongside an indulgent pre-prepared picnic box of goodies.

For those getting the gang together, CHANDON are able to curate a range of exclusive experiences designed specifically for larger group bookings of up to 30 people upon request.


So, whether it be for a daytrip with your partner or a weekend away with friends, there’ll be no better place to soak up the sunshine this summer than at CHANDON’s Garden Spritz Summer Sessions.


The pop-up will be open from Saturday 4 December 2021 until the end of February 2022, with extended opening hours planned for January. Bookings are expected to fill quickly, so lock in your Summer Session by calling 03 9738 9200 or via the CHANDON website:
