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.

We were pleasantly surprised by this amazing winery. Their art collection is outstanding and we learned a lot about the Hess collection. Honestly I am more interested in the art than the wine, but found the wine to be outstanding as well.

The drive up to Hess is pretty neat and then you arrive at their beautiful grounds and building. The art collection is, of course, terrific. The wine offerings are great. Definitely place it on your list.

Enjoyed a 90 minute tour of the facility with a tasting. Beautiful facilities and delicious wine. Guide was personable and knowledgable. Put this one on your list of must sees. The art is an added bonus. Very enjoyable and fun for adults.

Great collection of modern art and an extensive gift shop. The tour was fine, but not particularly remarkable.

We haven't been for a couple of years, and the collection has been changed drastically. Some of my favorite pieces have been moved to better locations. The new curator has done a terrific job reorganizing and hanging new works.

The museum is well worth the detour. The 25 dollar wine tasting disappointed - I have never had so little wine in the glasses at a tasting. I can adjust to the fact that they charge for the tasting (unlike the wine tastings I have...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.
