Our Ultimate Viewers' first stop was Domaine Chandon Winery, the Australian winery of French Champagne giant Moët & Chandon.
Domaine Chandon provides one of the valley's most serene and memorable experiences, complete with the finest sparkling wines and picturesque views.
Our Ultimate Viewers tasted several delicious wines, including three different blends of blanc de blancs—champagnes made exclusively from Chardonnay grapes.

Following the group's indoor tour of the winery, they each had a chance to stomp large barrels of grapes while sipping on sparkling wine and tasting appetizers.
After the grape stomping, our Ultimate Viewers were treated to a gourmet meal under the oak trees.
As parting gifts, our Ultimate Viewers received a bottle of wine of their choice and a wine bag that contained an iPod docking station.

While in Yarra Valley, our Ultimate Viewers also stopped by Healesville Sanctuary, one of Australia's most acclaimed wildlife sanctuaries with more than 200 species of wildlife, to get up close and personal with kangaroos and other native animals
The Tasmanian devil, the largest surviving marsupial carnivore, is another animal our Ultimate Viewers became familiar with at Healesville Sanctuary.
