On a related note, the Napa Valley's grape harvest for 2016 began yesterday at dawn. Not as early as last year, but still early. Just over 20 tons of Pinot Meunier were harvested at a vineyard in the southern end of Napa County which are destined to become Mumm Napa sparkling wine. I do hope that the folks at Mumm take these grapes and produce a 100% varietal sparkling Pinot Meunier with them (as they have in past vintages). Pretty, please? Yum, yum, yum.
