Overview

Donald Hess established his first Mount Veeder vineyard in 1978, from the beginning recognizing that on these ridges and benchlands, the potential for great winegrowing was clear. Deep, rocky, volcanic soils provide a home for vineyard blocks producing small, concentrated fruit that reflects the challenges of growing grapes at higher altitudes in the coolest mountain growing region in Napa. The Hess Collection winery is part of a historic site where wine was first produced in the 1860’s, in a native stone build hewn by masons in 1903. The original stone structure is now joined by The Hess Art Collection, a world-class showcase of contemporary art that captures “two passions under one roof.” The Hess Collection uses sustainable, environmentally-sound practices with the axiom, “Nurture the land, and return what you take.” That philosophy brings with it a dedication to delivering wines that speak to their natural origins. Wine tasting & tours daily. Culinary experiences include pairings with small plates, artisan cheese and chocolates.

This is such a great discovery - not only are their wines excellent (including the ones from the Mount Veeder appellation, which has a unique microclimate in Napa Valley, since it's up above the valley), but they have an interesting and extensive contemporary art collection...More

The wine is really interesting with a good variety to choose from! Great patio areas to sit outside, but also a wonderful modern art museum inside. Get a quick tour of the grounds if you can because it definitely insightful with some great history!

Located in a beautiful area, Hess is excellent for a low-key, wine tasting experience. Friendly, knowledgeable staff and a beautiful art gallery. Highly recommend spending time outside enjoying their property.

A flawlessly curated contemporary collection of art, incredible views, very memorable wine. Be sure to leave time for each floor of the collection. Even if this was a museum only, without the wine, it would be very much worth the visit. The wine is spectacular,...More

Visiting the grounds and the Museum is free. The winery tour and tasting is $25.00 per person for a 4-wine tasting. Some of the wines are only available at the winery.
