In well-known Mumm's light-filled tasting room or adjacent outdoor patio you can enjoy bubbly by the flute or the flight, but the sophisticated sparkling wines, elegant setting, and vineyard views aren't the only reasons to visit. An excellent gallery displays 27 original Ansel Adams prints and presents temporary exhibitions by acclaimed photographers. Winery tours cover the major steps making sparklers entails. For a leisurely tasting of several vintages of the top-of-the-line DVX wines, served with cheeses, nuts, and fresh and dried fruit, book an Oak Terrace tasting ($40; reservations recommended on Friday and weekends). Carlos Santana fans may want to taste the sparklers the musician makes in collaboration with Mumm's winemaker, Ludovic Dervin.
