Diageo Moet Hennessy (Thailand) led by Chandon Brand Manager, Ms. Monrudee Yudhanaraweesak, invited a group of media, Bangkok’s leading pub and restaurant shareholders, and celebrity couple, Mrs. Wannaporn and Mr. Atichai Poshayanonda, to an unforgettable Chandon experience in Melbourne, Australia. Not only did the group enjoy Chandon sparkling wine straight from the origin – Domaine Chandon, Yarra Valley – one of Australia’s oldest and most prestigious wine regions, but they also enjoyed the local Melbourne high life.
Fashion celebrity Mrs. Wanaporn Poshyanonda said “I was very impressed by this trip as I always enjoy life and also believe in the art of living. My favorite parts were experiencing Chandon at the vineyard and getting carried away by the exciting Melbourne nightlife. Besides, I think it was fantastic to collect many essential tips straight from such experienced winemakers on ‘méthode traditionnelle’ procedures and wine pairing. Cocktail recipes using Chandon Brut and Chandon Rosé as key ingredients will be very useful for when I’m hosting my own parties.”
In addition to being an enjoyable excursion to Australia, the key attribute of the trip was the impartment of wine knowledge by experienced winemakers, covering detailed wine tasting sessions, invaluable lessons on the history of wine and insider secrets of wine-making, as well as introducing guests to the joys of sumptuous dining venues around Melbourne. Everyone had a great time and enjoyed activities like creating cocktails such as the Chandon Sparkling Martini and Chandon Rosé Berry Fizz Punch.
The six wonderful days and five nights of the journey seemed to pass too quickly, hurried along by the lively smiles, laughter and temperate climate of the Melbourne air, but every moment and memory of this trip will linger in the minds of newly close companions.
