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.

Amazing modern art collection open to the public. You have to have an appointment to taste wine but are free to explore the 2 floors of art. The drive up is also beautiful and gets you off the strip. Well worth the time

This was an excellent experience, Orlando, our guide was knowledgeable about wine and art too. It was raining so we skipped the visit to the vineyard. The wine we tasted and the food pairings were delicious. A+ for Orlando and the Hess Winery!!!!!

Thanks! We're glad you had a nice time. It's a great winery when it's raining because there is wine tasting, food pairings and art. So much to do inside! I hope when you come back it will be sunny so you can visit the vineyards.

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.
