Moët Hennessy’s India unit has launched its first two wines that have been produced in the country, specifically for the local market. 

Chandon Brut (13% abv) is a sparkling wine made from Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes. Chandon Brut Rosé (12.5% abv) is a blend of Shiraz and Pinot Noir. The grapes used in both wines come from India's Nashik region. 

Moët Hennessy has invested in a greenfield winery in Dindori, a sub-region of the Nashik district. 

Mark Bedingham – Moët Hennessy's Asia-Pacific MD said: “A recent addition to the 'new world', Nashik is certainly the wine-making heartland of India and offers grape-growing conditions that are conducive to creating world-class sparkling wines. With the launch of Chandon, we aim to bring wine-making and the wine culture in India to new heights.”
