DescriptionDonald Hess established his first Mount Veeder vineyard in 1978, from the beginning recognizing that on these ridges and benchlands, the potential for great winegrowing was clear. A deep, rocky mix of ancient seabed and volcanic soils provides a home for vineyard blocks producing small, concentrated fruit that reflects the challenges of growing grapes at higher altitudes in the coolest mountain growing region in Napa. Vineyards stretch from 400 feet to 2400 feet above sea level, some of the highest elevations for grape growing in California. The first Hess Collection wine vintage vintage was 1983.

The Hess Collection winery is part of a historic site where wine was first produced in the 1860’s, in a native stone building hewn by masons in 1903. The original stone structure is now joined by The Hess Art Collection, a world-class showcase of contemporary art that captures “two passions under one roof.” Contemporary artists such as Francis Bacon, Robert Motherwell, Andy Goldsworthy and many more represent one of the finest private museums in the United States.

The Hess Collection uses sustainable, environmentally-sound practices with the axiom, “Nurture the land, and return what you take.” That philosophy brings with it a dedication to delivering wines that speak to their natural origins.

Visitors may explore not only the flagship Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon and notable Napa Valley Chardonnay, but Small Block Series wines produced exclusively for those who are members of the Hess Collector's Wine Club, and who visit the winery. The Hess Collection participates in 1% For The Planet, donating from the sale of these wines to community sustaining organizations such as the Land Trust of Napa Valley. Truly, this is Wine, Elevated.
