Mumm Winery Review: Bubbles in Napa

Overview:

For all the Sparkling Wine fans out there, this location is a must-visit. Mumm offers both a beautiful indoor space (with plenty of seats next to the windows) and
an expansive outdoor patio for some beautiful vineyard views in Rutherford.

Atmosphere:

Bright and airy modern farm setting with wooden tables, white high beam ceilings, and fresh flowers. Outdoor patio features a large, white pergola. I like this location to start off a day of wine tasting with a small group of girlfriends or to bring parents/grandparents.

Location:

8445 Silverado Trail Rutherford, CA 94573

What you should know:

Mumm offers visitors access to their fine art exhibit, featuring Ansel Adams among other artists. You can take a glass of sparkling wine and walk through the exhibit at no cost.

Reservations and Tastings/Tours:

Offers multiple tastings, glasses, and full walking tours (about 1 hour). Cheese plate can be purchased if you reserve a tasting on their Oak Terrace (right next to the patio). Appointment not required by highly recommended. They take walk-ins for groups less than 6.

Stand-out Wine:

Mumm Demi Sec: The crowd pleaser during our tasting was this sparkling wine. This means “half-dry” in French. Lightly sweet and delicious! Recommended pairing is fruit or desserts.
