THE HESS COLLECTION
As a result of damage from the earthquake that hit early Sunday morning, our Mount Veeder Visitor's Center, tasting room and museum will be closed initially on Monday and Tuesday, August 25-26, while we assess damage and make some repairs. Thank you for your understanding and patience, we hope to be open for your visits mid-week. Stay tuned to our Facebook page for status updates or call the winery directly at 707.255.1144 for info.
The Hess Collection was founded by Swiss entrepreneur Donald Hess, who first purchased vineyards on Mount Veeder in 1978. The winery is best known for its flagship Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay wines, and single vineyard designates from our estate vineyards in Napa Valley. A leader in sustainable practices, The Hess Collection adheres to founder Donald Hess’ philosophy: “Nurture the land; return what you take.”
Located in the historic stone winery originally constructed in 1903 by Colonel Theodore Gier, the winery first opened to the public in 1989. It since has earned international recognition for its wine, culinary and visitor programs, and provides free public access to Donald Hess’ extensive private contemporary Art Museum.
