Perched along our favorite drive in Napa Valley is a sparkling wine paradise by the name of Mumm Napa. Mumm was established in the US after the brand had success in making Champagne in France. They continue that connection today by making their sparkling wines in the traditional French style.
But let’s talk about the property for a minute. Like many places in Napa - Mumm is large and has a lot of tasting options. While all are surely great, the stunner here is their outdoor patio. With views stretching for miles, overlooking grapevines and mountains, their patio is one of the best in Napa.
We also found their hospitality to be delightful. They even gave our DD some non-alcoholic sparkling grape juice which was a sweet touch, and a great way for anyone who is pregnant or doesn’t drink to get the full experience.
We also loved that many of the tasting options include wine by the glass. We had every intention of doing a quick tasting, but afterward we ended up getting another glass to stay and enjoy the views, relaxation and good company a little longer. That’s what Wine Country is really all about!
