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.

This stop was unexpectedly wonderful. We were simply driving down a beautiful road and happened upon this vineyard. Much to our surprise the wine wasn't only amazing, but the story of this vineyard is very interesting. The owner has an "art gallery" on the premises....More

We went to the Hess Collection winery for some taste testing. Enjoyed a number of very nice wines from their collection. In addition, wandered around their art museum.Quite an extensive collection on multiple floors - worth a visit!

The place was pretty crowded when we got there and we were lucky that they had space for us. A booking is definitely required to ensure you get in. The gallery has interesting pieces but the wine is a tad over priced.

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.
