This philosophy brings with it a dedication to delivering wines that speak to their natural origins. The wines cultivated at The Hess Collection follow the dictates of the Napa Green certified land and winery programs, as well as the California Sustainable Winegrowing Alliance “Code of Sustainable Winegrowing”, both third-party certification programs with significant oversight.
The wine industry has taken a leadership role in green business practices. Wine industry leaders are working hand-in-hand with industrial, environmental and government agencies and community partners, to develop standards of “green” practices in winemaking. The Hess Collection has been at the forefront of the green movement for many years (see timeline below). Most importantly, the winery actively participates in a number of important programs that are shaping the future for the wine industry.
