Overview
More
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.

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

Hess Winery is a very special place in Napa. The art collected by the owner is beautifully exhibited in a gallery added to the winery. The art is rotated so I make it a point to visit every time I am in Napa.

In a region with hundreds of wineries with tasting rooms, Hess is its own beast. Best known for red wines. After tasting Hess's cabs from the world famous Mount Veeder appalacian, you won't be able to drink cheap wine again! The views from the top...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.
