The Hess Collection Collectors Club

The Hess Collection Collectors Club allows you to experience our winery on an elevated level.

Each year, our winemaking team hand picks an array of wines that showcase the diversity and exceptional quality The Hess Collection has to offer. These wines are the foundation for The Hess Collectors Club. Membership also includes hand-crafted recipes, and VIP access to our Visitors Center and The Hess Collection Art Museum.

Hess Winemaker Dave Guffy, believes great wine begins in the vineyard, working each vineyard block to absolutely maximize flavors. Learn more about The Hess Collection wines and winemaking from Dave’s winemaker notes, included in each club shipment.

Chad Hendrickson, executive chef, utilizes local organically and sustainably grown products to create fresh seasonal recipes to pair with The Hess Collection wines. He pairs unique flavors and textures in each wine with complementary flavor combinations in the dishes he creates. Expertly pair your wines with one of Chad’s original recipes, also included in each club shipment.

Under the umbrella of Wine, Elevated we have used the mountain as an inspiration in developing new names for the clubs. These titles reflect the journey toward the top of the mountain and represent the increasing benefits now associated with the different selections.
