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.

Beautiful setting for a winery. Enjoyed a cheese plate in the shade of a table with an umbrella on a beautiful day prior to our tour. We learned a lot about the wine making process and enjoyed the art displays as well.

This was a beautiful winery. The drive there was beautiful through a collection of Redwoods. Unfortunately, the locals are not too happy with people who drive the speed limit on "their" roads!

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.
