About Pour One, Plant One
Sustainability has been at the core of The Hess Collection’s values since we were established in 1978. As our founder Donald Hess said, “Nurture the land, return what you take.” In keeping with this time-honored philosophy, we have launched the Pour One, Plant One program in partnership with The National Forest Foundation.
How the Program Works
Each bottle of Hess Select sold over the next year will contribute toward the planting of 25,000 trees in National Forests around the United States. Together, Hess Select and our consumers will help support the National Forest Foundation as they work to reforest and strengthen national forests around the country.
Our Commitment to Sustainability
Sustainability is an essential part of our philosophy. In 2008, we were among the first 10 wineries to receive certification as a Napa Green Winery. Today, our estate vineyards are certified Napa Green Land properties and our winemaking facilities are Napa Green Winery certified. The Hess Collection is also certified as a Fish Friendly Farming organization, a program designed to voluntarily implement the Clean Water Act, Endangered Species Act, State Water Code and other regulations on private agricultural lands.
