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.

We became club members the last time we visited because the winery specializes in the kind of wines we love and because it’s such a unique property. The small contemporary art museum offers a break in the usual tasting schedule that a visit to Napa...More

Great place to visit way off Highway 29. It is up in Mount Veeder right next to the De La Salle retreat center. Great hospitality and a wide variety of wines and amazing art work.

We thoroughly enjoyed the wine tour and tasting at Hess. This was the first winery we visited during our stay in Napa. It really set the bar high for expectations of a tour and tasting. I highly recommend going to Hess.

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.
