In 1978, Donald Hess came to Napa determined to defy convention and pursue winemaking not on the valley floor but in the mountains. He established the Hess Collection winery on the steep slopes of Mount Veeder and began a legacy of luxury wine-making.
Donald's passion for elevation winemaking and nurturing the land helped put Mount Veeder on the wine map as its own nested AVA of Napa Valley in 1993.
In 2012, Donald handed the reins to his daughter Sabrina and her husband Tim Persson. Still family-owned and operated today, Hess Persson Estates encompasses The Hess Collection, Lions Head Collection, as well as other labels and brands cultivated over the years.
We can’t wait to welcome you here atop Mount Veeder, our home for more than 40 years. Whether you’d like to book a private tour of the Hess Art Museum or one of our many culinary experiences, reservations are required. We request all guests be 21+.
Enjoy a seated tasting of Estate-exclusive wines in our garden courtyard, shaded by ancient redwoods. Elevate your tasting with savory and sweet bite pairings prepared by Executive Chef Chad Hendrickson. Also available for several of our tastings and experiences is a private tour of The Hess Art Museum.
For something off the beaten path, take a Tour Of The Palate – A private art museum tour followed by three courses of Chef Chad Hendrickson’s best dishes, featuring herbs and produce grown in our estate gardens. Each course is paired to perfection with our finest wines.
TASTE AMONG THE VINEYARDS
Let us take you on an adventure. Offered while weather allows, our ATV Experience immerses you in our vineyards while you taste the wines growing beside you. It’s one of our favorite ways to highlight sustainable practices and showcase the rugged beauty of Mount Veeder.
