We wanted to visit Hess because of its location, so different to many of the other wineries in Napa. The drive was lovely and the winery itself is attractive with beautiful, peaceful grounds. We found the tasting room staff helpful and there are well thought out exhibits about the different growing conditions, which I found useful. I have to say though that the highlight for me was the Hess Collection of Modern Art, the quality and quantity of which far exceeded my expectations. Even if you don't drink wine, the entrance fee is well worth it for this collection and this winery was one of the surprise standouts of our trip.
