Napa Valley, Elevated
Donald Hess became interested in mountain winegrowing during a trip to the Napa Valley in the mid‐1970’s. He found that Mount Veeder’s vineyards had the ideal combination of soils and microclimates to produce grapes of distinctive character and flavor. Thus, began The Hess Collection’s love for unique mountain and valley fruit expressed through artfully crafted wines.
High atop Mount Veeder, The Hess Collection welcomes you to the Napa Valley. Whether you wish to enjoy beautifully crafted wine and food pairings from our culinary team, learn the fundamentals of blending wine, stroll through the Hess Family’s awe-inspiring private art collection or take in the stunning panoramic mountain vineyard views aboard our highperformance ATV – we have an experience tailored for you.
Passion, dedication and perseverance have been the guiding principles of The Hess Collection since Donald Hess founded the winery in 1978. As fifth generation Hess Family, we continue to define the spirit behind the wines. We proudly continue Donald’s legacy carrying on tradition and his commitment to craft world-renowned wines from the Napa Valley while introducing wines that speak to our vision for the future.
