Sparkling wines in Napa Valley on the Silverado Trail
Napa Valley & Sonoma Wine Tasting Tours
Mumm Napa is owned by Pernod Riccard. Perdond Riccard USA—which owns such recognizable brands as Absolut© Vodka, Chivas Regal© Scotch Whiskey and Beefeater© Gin—is the largest subsidary of Paris, France-based Pernod Ricard SA. Mumm Napa develops outstanding sparkling wines in the méthode traditionnelle.
A visit to Mumm offers so many diversions that it can actually be an hours-long adventure. Complimentary, 45-minute group tours are given at 10 a.m., providing a “behind the scenes” look at how sparkling wine is made and the specialized equipment that automates part of the process.
The stunning Aperture Gallery at Mumm Napa offers free entry to exhibits that typically change twice a year in addition to a Private Collection Gallery featuring works such as sculptures by Phillip Glashoff.
As for tastings, you can choose from a few locations: the beautiful, glass-enclosed tasting salon offers marvelous vineyard views; the patio, where you’ll receive table service, choosing from a range of tasting flights or order a single glass; or the Oak Terrace, where you’ll enjoy a 2-hour seating while gazing out at a fantastic view.
No wonder the Wine Enthusiast called Mumm Napa one of “America’s Best Tasting Rooms.”
When Formula 1 Grand Prix winners come to the podium each year, the “sprayed” victory champagne is Mumm.
