She said…I love sparkling wine, so I really enjoyed Mumm. We tasted six different sparkling wines and ended up purchasing some reserve bottles that you can only get at the winery. It was very busy when we were there, but we were able to get a table right away with a nice view. They seat you and wait on you here unlike many other places we visited, but it was not pretentious. The atmosphere was lively and casual, and the service was great.
He said…After tasting some great wines, we were ready for a change of pace. Therefore, we decided to visit Mumm and sample their sparkling wines. Our server was very nice, which added to our experience. All the wines were great, especially the Brut Reserve Rose, which we decided to buy. We’ll be breaking some of that out for Thanksgiving!
She said…I love this winery. It has a very cool, laid back vibe and a fairly small tasting room. Their reds are fabulous, and we shipped home some cabernet that I can’t wait to drink!
He said…I’ve always enjoyed PlumpJack wines although we haven’t tasted them in awhile. The winery didn’t disappoint as the simple surroundings made it all about the wine. I agree that the reds were fantastic. We tried wines from Cade Estate Winery, which was founded as a complement to PlumpJack. The wines from Cade were equally complex to those at PlumpJack and we decided to purchase a couple of bottles.
She said…I hated this place. It was pretentious and their reserve tasting included two wines from their winery in Croatia that I did not enjoy at all.
He said…By far our least favorite winery of the trip. We decided to try the reserve tasting and were disappointed with the wines.
On the bright side, it was another enjoyable day with great friends! That pretty much wraps up our winery visits, but we still have some of great food from our trip to share.
